Discover Dana Point

Few places in the United States have views like Southern California, and Dana Point is one of the most impressive among them. The beautiful weather and the open ocean waves draw some of the most exciting people and the most innovative chefs to the area. Pacific Coast seafood is beyond compare in this area, and many places serve it simply and with a straightforward approach. Just add salt, oil and lemon, and the ocean will flavor the rest. The morning catch is that day's lunch. Another great product of the California coast is the fantastic produce that is fresh and the choice of the season. While the wonderful ocean views draw your eyes, let the taste of the Pacific draw your stomach.
