My parents are coming to visit in the coming weeks and my girlfriend and I are looking for some places to take them for brunch and dinner. She and I recently relocated from San Francisco and have not had the time to try very many places in and around the southbay area. We are looking for places that would have outdoor seating or bright dining areas with ocean views in or around the south bay or as far north as Malibu. We noticed Moonshadows on this site and are looking for feedback on it in addition to any other specific recomendations people may have. Places do not have to be fancy but good food is a must. Thanks.
