Marisol at The Cliffs Ocean View Pismo Beach Dining


With panoramic views of the Pacific and the beautiful coastline that surrounds, at Marisol, the visual experience alone is enough to create a line of people that extends out the door, all who are waiting for a table. But there’s a whole-lot-more to enjoy about this restaurant in Pismo Beach than just the appeal of what meets the eye. The market-driven menu at Marisol is described as “California fan fare”; it’s the perfect fusion of fine dining and a low-key, Central Coast vibe. Featuring produce from fields of local farmers, seafood fresh off the boats of local fishermen, and naturally raised meats and poultry, the flavors of the food at Marisol are beautifully complimented by an award-winning wine list that includes some of the hottest local vintages.
