    Duckies: Casual seafood place

    by trvlrtom Written Jan 17, 2010

    Duckies is a good place to get clam chowder and other seafood such as shrimp and fish & chips. This is an informal place, so don't expect anything fancy. The food though, is pretty good. The location is great. It is just steps away from the ocean, with views of the beach and pier from the front window. If you are driving the coast, this would be a good place to stop for lunch, take a walk on the beach, and continue on your trip.

    Schooner's: Good food and atmosphere

    Entrance to Schooner's

    Schooner's is a very popular bar and restaurant in Cayucos and this part of the California coast. If you are in the area, it is a recommended stop.
    The menu has good items and some creative preparations. It isn't just regular diner food, but not really too upscale either. The atmosphere is casual. The entrance may make it seem a little whimsical, but don't be fooled into thinking that the food won't be good here. The wine list isn't expensive, but focuses on good wines from this part of California. There are good options.
    Downstairs there is a dining area facing the street, but the preferred place to be is upstairs, in the small bar (if you can get a seat) or on the outdoor patio, which overlooks the beach.

    Hoppe's: Best restaurant in the area

    by trvlrtom Written Dec 31, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hoppe's, Cayucos, California

    Hoppe's, located in an old historic building in the center of Cayucos, rightfully deserves its reputation as the finest restaurant on this stretch of the California Coast. The menu is creative without being pretentious, including fresh seasonal ingredients that reflect what is available regionally. The entrees change periodically.

    Favorite Dish: There are several cheese plates that are great for an appetizer, and include great specialty cheeses from throughout California.

    Try to save some room for desert. They have special pairings of desert plates with desert drinks such as port.

    Hoppe's Bistro: Excellent food and wine selection!

    by mexicruiser Written Jan 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I made reservations at this restaurant for Christmas Eve, not knowing anything about the place, except that it was a Bistro of some sort, which meant European, possibly French - so why not give it a try?!

    After I'd made my reservation, I decided to check the place out on the internet, and these are just some of the reviews I came across....
    Who would have thought such an incredible restaurant tucked away in this small beach town? A ten day vacation that included San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma and the Russian River wine country - this was by far our favorite meal.
    Hands down, as fine a restaurant as you will find anywhere. To stumble on this establishment in the sleepy little beach town of Cayucos, as opposed to Rodeo Dr in Beverly Hills, was a complete and very pleasant surprise. The service, the presentation, the ambiance and the cuisine...all superb.
    I knew then that I had definitely made the right decision!!

    Favorite Dish: We had the surf and turf, a delicious filet mignon with a generous lobster tail and excellent sources....
