Enjoy nice meals and drinks by the beautiful Avila Old Pier. Parking might be an issue if you go in very busy days. The price is fair and you can also see some seals around which is especially fun if you have kids.

Tried to get in to have lunch, the place was packed! The menu was great, everybody seem to be enjoying your food and the view was spectacular. I WOULD go back to try again only if they had a seat available, lol.
