Paradise Cove Beach Cafe
A reservation at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe does not hold you a table but puts your party on a priority waitlist. Guests with reservations could potentially wait up to 1 hour with the reservation, depending on how busy it is. Reservations may check-in 20 minutes before their reservation time so we can start preparing your table. In the meantime guests may enjoy the beach and get some drinks and appetizers from our to-go shop. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these strange times.
No mask, no service!

Cute place with a unique charm. Food was what one would expect from a diner, but you can tell people come for the environment. Being able to sit outside on the sand on a beautiful day is quite fun.
Incredible food , service and setting .
Staff, ambiance and location are perfect. Food is mediocre.
Beautiful experience excellent service I cant wait to go back thank you for everything
Always a great way to spend your afternoon with a delicious bread bowl of clam
Chowder or anything on the menu. Followed by a stroll on the beach…
Shee crab soup was not available. What a doss
Great place ..delicious food great view
Good food. Great ambiance. Yummy drinks.
Food was really good, portions are large so be ready to eat. Kids meal portions are large as well. Place is loud but it’s supposed to be, that is the ambiance of the place, views are beautiful, service was excellent. Drinks, yes please, yummy. Only thing I can say negative was parking, spend over $300 on lunch and still had to pay $10 for parking after validation, not like we hung out after wards and walked the beach we just stopped for lunch. It is what it is, would I go back, without a doubt.
Food is tasty, view is great. Portions are insanely large and therefore pricey. A fun place to take out of town guests, but I recommend sharing a meal.
Toes in the sand with drinks in hand. What a way to start 2022.
It’s a beautiful destination but the food was wildly over priced and they didn’t have any avocados which most of their dishes include. Our food took over an hour to come and the burgers which were requested as well done were raw in the middle. So much so my husband couldn’t eat his. So I guess, go for the ambiance of eating on the beach but expect to pay and wait for subpar food. We had 4 in our party…We had a corn on the cob and shrimp appetizer, two burgers with a side of fries and two taco lunch entrees with 3 sodas. In the end with parking and tip our bill was $300 for lunch for 4 people. The service snd ambiance were not worth it.
I went to the Paradise cove cafe for my brunch on Dec 31, 2021. I and my friend had the tacos and corn pasta. We went there to enjoy the views so even though food wasn't extraordinary, we wasn't disapointed. View was spectacular and service was great.
We were celebrating New Years Eve with a nice lunch. My 22 year old son Ordered the Fish & chips which came with a ton of fries but only 2 small pieces of fish. I ordered the tacos and asked for one to be the corn and avocado but was told they were out of avocado. Was a bit disappointed.
All was just fabulously
Good food! Great ocean views
Definitely coming back!
The food and the view were great. The service wasn't bad but could have been better. We had a bit of difficulty getting drinks...
Dated atmosphere. Over priced tourist spot. Not a great option
Great restaurant on the beach. Huge potions, great staff and amazing surroundings.
We went on Christmas day and the weather was cold, so we sat inside at the window and next to the screened door so felt pretty safe from COVID. The food was wonderful, the portions huge and the staff very attentive, friendly and skilled. Prices are a bit pricy but we expected to pay for the view, and it was worth it. Parking was free for four hours with validation. We walked out on the pier next to the restaurant right after breakfast to cap off a perfect morning!
Fun place on the beach. Portions are huge and delicious.
Went for appetizers and the sunset.
We really enjoyed ourselves.
Great experience as always!
Delicious food, wonderful ocean view seating, great service! This beats our ocean front restaurants in Santa Barbara!
Great location! Nice view! Huge portion!
It was m husband’s birthday
Had a lovely time for my moms birthday
Service was very very slow specially because I had my toddler with us but everything else was perfect
Food was just okay. Expected amazing with the reviews but I did enjoy the atonpshere. The waiter was friendly and accommodating.
Perfect place for some great food and amazing surroundings
I absolutely love it here! I always make time to come dine here when I’m in town. Food is great, service is fantastic and can’t bear that view! Literally eating on the sand!!
Birthday breakfast and it was delicious!
My sisters flew in from the Midwest. We went straight from the airport to the PCBC. Food was amazing. We ate outside right next to the water. Service was fast and friendly. Love all the old pictures. Great experience! Thank you!
Very expensive, but the food, service, and ambience are great.
The only problem I have with the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is the parking fee. It seems like if I spent $140 for lunch for 2 people it would not cost $8 to park per car.
Everything else was wonderful!
Great food great time
Had a great time today. Service was wonderful and food and view go hand and hand
Date night with my best friend. I love how we can get our seafood on and this place is the bomb!! She absolutely loves it too!
Great view and the drinks were fantastic.
