Find the Most Appetizing Restaurants on Catalina Island

Catalina IslandIf you are visiting Catalina Island or have recently moved to the community, then you will be interested to know where the best restaurants are located. Let’s start by saying that the food here is highly diversified. Despite being an “exotic” island, Catalina is very close to the West Coast. Therefore, you can expect to see many fast food chain restaurants. Coney Island West at the Metropole Marketplace is a better quality restaurant that still serves up fast food.

Instead of spending your money on fast food, why not visit some real dining delights? If you want Mexican food, then check out Mi Casita on Claressa and Coyote Joe’s on Catalina Avenue. If the scenic view is the most important feature, then you can’t go wrong with Busy Bee, as it gives you not only a view of the bay but also of the nearby casino. Coney Island West at the Metropolis Marketplace also offers a nice view with pigeon friends walking by looking for crumbs.
