We eat at this restaurant more than any other especially when we have visitors because we don't want any disappointment to ruin their visit. This restaurant is always consistently excellent!

Another great experience at Luv N Oven. Best steaks in Salinas. Done right and the peper sauce was outstanding. Split an order of the pescado chicarons that were marvelous.

I ordered camarón reventado (fried shrimp) and my wife ordered a chicken milanesa. Overall the food was decent but nothing Earth shattering. It's got a nice location overlooking the malecón so a nice place to people watch.
