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.
