THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Eladio's Restaurant Review

: The restaurant of Harbor View Inn, Eladio’s enjoys postcard vistas of Stearns Wharf, the ocean and the Channel Islands. The interior is all polished wood and granite, reflective of a ships galley with wide windows to the outside, where the majority of people dine under red umbrellas and palm trees. The menu leans toward a Mediterranean style as well, with highlights including scallop and crimini mushroom and charbroiled salmon with fresh spinach. Local ingredients, from seafood to seasonal greens, often play a starring role in the dishes; generous chunks of Pacific cod are used in the ceviche, as well as fish tacos. But don’t overlook more traditional fare like the beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips, burgers, salads and thin-crust pizzas. The wine selection is evenly split between local wines and Sonoma and Napa labels. They also have a full bar, which runs a four-hour happy hour daily.
