The views from this gem of a restaurant—which is a five-minute walk north of the tourist hub—will make you feel like you're in a secluded paradise; boats, sea kayaks, and the beautiful bay stretch before you. Outdoor seating in the Bay Area doesn't get much better than this, and the inventive, well-balanced, local- and organic-based menu won't disappoint either. Try the Paradise Bay cioppino in a rich tomato-fennel broth or the grilled organic lamb sirloin with goat cheese and garlic flan. The trio crème brûlée—espresso, mango, and coconut—is divine, as is the extensive cocktail list. This is also the perfect place for weekend brunch—the buttermilk ginger pancakes topped with banana and mango are out of this world.
