The exterior of the building is a reproduction of Ye Olde Bell, England's oldest Inn located in Hurley-on-Thames, not far from London. The decor resembles an English tavern to match the outside, and the waitresses are dressed in super-sexy outfits straight out of a movie about Merrie Olde England. The clientele is varied and comes to enjoy the good, hearty meat dishes and the interesting atmosphere. The specialties here are roast prime ribs of beef, rack of lamb, duck, veal and fresh seafood. There is a full bar and an award-winning wine list with bottles in every price range.
Located right on the sand of Crystal Cove, the Beachcomber operates in one of the historic cottages, and features seafood and mixed drinks. The quality of the food and the service is best proved by its popularity: the wait is often two hours, and limited reservations are accepted only on-line. However, a little planning can make the wait hassle free: make the Beachcomber reception the first stop at Crystal Cove, drop in your name and number, then go explore the beach until being called. Don't have 2 hours? Come for an early breakfast – sipping a cup of coffee on the sun deck while looking out at Santa Catalina Island. A perfect way to start your day.

All the dishes at Romeo Cucina are the perfect temperature and flavor. Everything is either low-carb or regular diet carb. After spreading the incredibly flavorful Tapenade on the warm bread, an entrée seems almost superfluous. Yet, Lasagnette Graziella and Capellini del Padrino are just a couple of the pasta dishes that should not be missed. Pizza lovers should try their Ai Formaggi. If you enjoy a modern twist of piano play, check with the restaurant for the schedule. - Hoiyin Ip
