Positive Stagnaros Restaurant Santa Cruz Review:
Good un-fussy seafood if you're looking for a fresh catch. Ambience is nice and quaint-- obviously a local haunt. Only been once, but food was great and comforting although at times our service left a little to be desired. Don't miss the House Bloody Mary special.

Negative Stagnaros Restaurant Santa Cruz Review:
Yes, it is a great view, but one does not need to pay $16.99 for a plate of seafood with one shrimp, one scallop, some undetermined fish that you would pass on at Safeway, and lots of french fries. $16,99 just for the pleasure of watching the view that you can watch for free standing outside the window.
This restaurant was my favorite destination for many years, but poor service, poor menu, small pricey portions and below standard cooking make this experience a one time mistake for the poor tourist who will not be back.

Average Stagnaros Restaurant Santa Cruz Review:
Our family has enjoyed this restaurant for 20 years. During this time we have expereinced great tasting food, good service and a consistently good eating experience. We love the view whether we sit upstairs or on the main floor.
Yet, something has happened since the early spring when the restaurant re-opened after the remodel. The menu was changed and the quality and taste of the food has been disappointing. We've gone twice since March and I don't know if we'll return for a while.
During my first visit earlier this spring, the calamari was chewy and didn't taste as fresh. And what happened to the fried tenticles?
This visit, I ordered the fish and chips. Overall, the servings were smaller, the fish was dry and over fried. The prices have been raised and some menu items are no longer available. Our service was fair at best. After our meals were brought out, she never returned. We had to ask another food server for help,
I would have give only 2 stars, but the view is so beautiful.
