In our opinion, La Costanera has the BEST view and dining on the coastside – perched on Montara State Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This is the place for sunsets! The menu has something for everyone with terrific seafood, pork, foul and beef with unique – though not spicy-hot – flavors. The entire downstairs features their bar/lounge area with both comfy seating and communal bar tables and, of course, a pisco sour tasting menu. You’ll need to arrive early (we suggest right at opening time, 5 PM) to snag a seat on their outdoor patio.
Insider’s tip: dinner reservations fill up quick, especially on the weekends, but they serve their full menu in the lounge as well with no reserved seating.
