This is one of the best places to eat and drink in Carlsbad with an amazing view of the ocean. The ahi poke, the calamari and the chicken parmagiana are the best. Actaully all the food is amazing and the happy hour is one of the best. They have many interesting and special drinks as well. Love this place

Always love this place a little pricey though. Happy hour is excellent and the bar area is a bit small. Great view across the street is the beach. Loved their garlic vegetables but they don't serve them anymore. Fish a chips are yummy and not greasy.

Dini's is a great option to start the night if you're planning a pub or bar crawl through the Village. They have a great happy hour - it's all afternoon until 7pm on Wednesdays! - and gorgeous views of the ocean, as they're right on Carlsbad Blvd. Try an oyster and Bloody Mary combo and sit by the windows at sunset.

A great place located right along the Pacific Coast Highway, with a front row view of the ocean. Particularly stunning at sunset, Dini's is the go-to for romantics for dinner on the patio terrace...then once the sun goes down and the nightlife heats up in Carlsbad, it is the perfect launching pad for pub crawls through Carlsbad Village. You can choose to sit in the dining room or in the bar area - although small and slightly cramped, about 30 of us took over and milled around for a good hour among the bar stools and small tables, enjoying the view of dusk settling in over the Pacific.
