This restaurant provides a view of the Pacific coastline, from Malibu to the South Bay, which you can enjoy while eating delicious Mexican food. This restaurant is located at the very end of the picturesque Santa Monica Pier. It offers two outdoor dining areas, two stories of dining room space and a bar reminiscent of one that might be found at a Mexican beach town.

Anyone who decides to dine in can enjoy mouthwatering Mexican fare reminiscent of that found in the Mexican beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. The fresh fishes are seasoned with flavorful peppers and distinctive sauces. If you are a fish and seafood lover — or just want to enjoy sunny California days — be sure to come here and give a try. Check here for the menus.

If you want to have a coffee or dessert after your meal, stop here and try some sweet, organic fare. The Urth Caffé is an organic coffee company that exclusively carries its own brand of premium, freshly roasted, whole-bean organic coffee and hand-selected fine teas, sold under strict quality and ethical standards.

This restaurant is famous for certified organic ingredients. In fact, the word ‘Urth’ means 100% chemical free. All the food available here has great flavor and richness, which stands out from traditional ingredients offered elsewhere, especially when it comes to their organic coffee. The café also proffers delicious sandwiches filled with healthy items. If you are an organic food-lover, make sure to give Urth try. But beware: you might become addicted to it! Lastly, be sure to save some room for dessert, as the quality and flavor of the sweet treats at Urth are unbeatable.
