Cute outdoor dining and bar. We have stayed at a nearby condo four times over five years. Every time we go back to this charming bar and restaurant for the ambiance but are disappointed by rude wait staff.

We were pleased we made reservations as we were treated to a delicious meal and excellent service. We loved their authentic Caesar salad and seafood pasta & lasagna (special of the night). The servers were very helpful and worked together well as a team. We...returned with a neighbour on a Tuesday evening and once again had great service and a delicious meal. On Tuesdays they have an amazing band where many got up to dance. Make a reservation as you do not want to miss out. Their live music nights sell out!More

I stayed at the hotel itself for a week and so ate at the restaurant everyday for at least breakfast, but also lunch and dinner. Staff is pleasant, food quality and pricing was consistently good.

Outstanding food/service! We had the chicken with mushrooms-delicious. Next night we came back ( we could walk from our hotel)and had the filet mignon with peppercorn brandy cream. Michelin worthy ( salivating as I write this review) The restaurant itself is charming with the lighting...and the live music was a wonderful experience. If you're staying in Playa Hermosa it's definitely worth going here.More

One of the best restaurants in Hermosa Beach. On Friday and Sunday nights, the band Dream Machine plays all our old trendy songs. We sing we dance and we especially eat very well. This was a highlight of our vacation, something not to be missed....Weather you ear seafood, fish, porc or filet mignon, it is all delicious.More

We has a fantastic meal here tonight. From the minute we stepped into the restaurant, we felt welcomed. The service couldn't be faulted. The setting, ambience and feel of the place was perfect. The food was excellent, delicious and beautifully presented. Good menu, with chef...specials. Yes it was a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. My husband and I loved it so much, we've already booked a table for tomorrow night when they put on live music. We are staying in the Bosque de la Mar, the restaurants there do not compare to this one!More

This place just got better . Now featuring happy hour 5 to 7 with the Jazz group of Mango Taxi. A beautiful tropical garden setting with a full restaurant and separate covered bar . This is one of my favourite spots in Hermosa especially Friday...and Sunday nights with live music it is even better now with Tuesday Jazz, great food and service , the best waiters ever are definitely Ronnie and Randell always friendly and happy, Don’t miss out , great crepes for breakfast .More

We went to this restaurant twice, once in New year and a Tuesday. The restaurant has also a bar with its own menu. This review is only for the restaurant. If you want to come here for the live music and the bar, good for...you. Do not expect a joung crows waiting for you because clients are most retired or over 50 years old. Music is nice but only big classics. Restaurant: plates are really overpriced for the overall experience. Dishes are very normal and small portions. Service is very bad in rush hour (2 times same poor service). Wait, and wait. For that price you would expect a waiter or someone keeping in eye on the clients, however it was common to see clients trying the catch the attention of the waitress without success. I guess that the owner after 25 years he is more worried about the music quality and socializing than the restaurant. You choose if the live music is good enough to visit this place.More
