The restaurants on or near the Pacific Ocean cater to some of the most sophisticated people in Los Angeles — many of whom can afford to live by the beach. When they go out to eat, they expect not only a great ocean view, but great food as well. Each beachside restaurant has its own personality, ambience and type of cuisine, but they all have one thing in common — an air of casual-fun-in-the-sun festivity, where you can experience the California dreamin' lifestyle all year long. For those who enjoy eating within sight or sound of the ocean, we've compiled this list of the 2014 Top 10 Beach Restaurants in Los Angeles, presented in alphabetical order.
