A nice cozy small restaurant overlooking the ocean. Great selection of oysters (there were 7 varieties when we were there) and many other tasty seafood dishes. Highly recommend lobster tacos. Service is casual, but food is very tasty.

A quaint restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. Ordered the oysters and they were beautiful! fresh and scrumptious. The lobster that I had for main was well prepared. This was the best meal I've had in Santa Monica. Will defn come back again.

We were spending the weekend in Santa Monica and found this amazing restaurant. Definitely need a reservation, it's so popular, but extremely worth it! We got the red curry mussels, grilled octopus and lobster roll with mac and cheese and couldn't have been happier.

I love going to this restaurant to eat oysters.... They have the freshest from the west coast and the east coast year round. Reading the daily oyster menu is like reading a fine wine menu. Additionally, the seared ahi tacos are the best fish tacos...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

If you go to the Blueplate web site, they have a "parking" URL that will give a lot of local info in detail. Or use google earth and you can see all the parking lots that are around the place. Looks like a parking lot... More
