    We had an enjoyable time at Paradise Beach Grille and the staff were very nice and efficient. The good was fine. A WORD OR TWO ABOUT PARKING---it's best to use the large public parking lot at the top of the hill coming into Capitola. We got caught in a pretty knarly traffic logjam and ended up going back up the hill to the big lot and walking down.

    Watching the sunset from our table was what we wanted and it was so peaceful. Guests loved the ambiance and the food. Our waiter Josh made every effort to ensure that we had a great experience! A gem!!

    We were there a little earlier for a full dinner experience but the salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables was absolutely delicious. The hamburger was ample and very well prepared. Brussel sprouts on small plates are very good but could use a little crisping up!!

    My husband and I took his mom who loves being by the water and loves seafood. She had a red snapper with mango sauce and was in heaven. We shared the Ahi Tuna and Avocado appetizer which was delicious. Service was on point and we had a wonderful time.

    Good was under seasoned. Service was great. They are now charging a service charge. Why? That comes out of the servers tip. The ow er needs to just raise the prizes a little rather than charge a service charge.

    Great setting in the village, right on the water. Menu was great. I had salmon. It was good. The mashed potatoes were good and the green beans cooked perfectly. Service was a little slow. The windows could use washing to enjoy the views. Table was tiny. I would go there again because the food was delicious.

    Just an average meal at an above average price. Calimari was over breaded, cocktail was weak, very below average decor and very loud.

    The service was great, we ate outside which was lovely, it started raining as we were finishing up. Food was okay, nothing special. We all ordered starters, no alcohol and the bill was $123!

    Great meal by the ocean for our out of town guests. We had a nice table on the patio perfect for listening to the ocean waves during dinner. We enjoyed fish and chips, salads, prawns entree, fried cheesecake dessert, etc. We truly appreciated how accommodating the staff were by changing our reservation time to better fit our needs and making our visit to Capitola village special.
