There are a ton of swell dining spots along the beachfront, but you must remember this: As time goes by, few have been able to match the ambience and romance of this historic neo-Mediterranean manse turned restaurant and piano bar, tucked rather unexpectedly onto a corner amid the condos and hotels. Chef Dario Marquez comes up with tasty victuals such as walnut chicken, which besides walnut crust also involves goat cheese, saffron risotto, spinach pesto, roasted red peppers, and balsamic reduction. There’s also nightly live entertainment. There are no reservations, so (especially on weekends) you might want to show up before 7pm or after 9pm, or expect a wait of an hour (but hey, there’s a bar for that).
