Margaritaville: "The view is as good as the food" Capitola Restaurant Tip by Agraichen

Capitola Restaurants: 13 reviews and 12 photos


Say what you will about Jimmy Buffet ( I love his music), but Margaritaville is always a great place to eat regardless that it is now a very large chain.

The spot in Capitola is no exception. The view is magnificent as you look out over the beach to the very colorful beach hotel, then beyond to the pier.

The staff was very friendly and efficient. This may be a tribute to the General Manager Tristan McLarty, or just the beauty of the location itself.

Favorite Dish: Tough choice. I loved the "Drunk Chicken" done to perfection with a Tequila glaze but my wife inhaled the Lobster tail so .....

Address: 231 Esplanade #101, Capitola, CA 95010
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: At the corner as you go left to get to the beach on Esplanade; can't miss it.
