You likely won’t find aging rockers hiding out on Margaritaville’s patio. Perched over Capitola Beach, this is where families and couples gather for post-beach eats.
Sandy toes fill the dining room and bar, where daily specials are scratched on the chalkboard. True to its name the cocktails deliver a punch.
Yet the real allure is the cuisine. Honing in on its proximity to the sea, expect a selection of oysters and a trio of seafood tacos worth sampling. Their guacamole makes a tasty snack.
Burritos and meat plates cater to the post-surf crowd. While salads and veggie tacos appeal to those wanting to squeeze back into their bikinis.
If you have a larger party, make a reservation in advance. Though most days you can walk right in and be seated.
