Cafe Gibraltar is out of the way and missed by many visitors. It is on the frontage road that parallels Highway 1, but worth the detour. They also cater.

This is my favorite restaurant on the coast. The delicious crudos are whatever fish is the most fresh, combined with subtle herbs and spices, every entree is distinctive and the desserts are worth saving space for.
