    I don't know that Bonito is open for Sunset anymore, so Shellona. Or grab a bottle/thermos/whatever of your favourite beverage and head up to the lighthouse.

    Shellona, or take your own cooler/bottle of wine to the new park beside the hospital. Plenty of parking and lots of places to sit; it's a beautiful setting.

    Thanks to all. I hadn't thought of the hospital park. A little cloudy today. If it clears, then maybe we will head there with a cooler if the kids want to come. (Although, didn't someone have a gendarme issue once recently?) If no kids, then maybe Bonito. They may open at 6.

    The gendarme issue was a poster driving the wrong way on a one way street. It was a driver issue.

    Bonito opens at 6:30 tomorrow. They use Open Table and it works. In the special request section, ask for a harbor side table for the sunset and to confirm back with you. They will tell you those tables are 'first come first served.' Arrive at 6PM and you will get your table and they will probably seat you early. Bon Appetit!

    Right, looks like Bonito opens at 6.30, which is on the late side as the sun sets today at 6.27pm... funny they used to advertise sunset drinks...

    Shellona remains open 'til 7:30pm

    I think the hospital park is a great new space and urge you to visit and enjoy it.

    Don't forget sunsets at the Christopher in Pt. Milou. Gorgeous. I want to say they do a special cocktail hour now but unsure if it is daily or a specific night of the week. Sunsets hear are beautiful though

    The Christopher does a special on cocktails and appetizers every Tuesday evening for sunset. Don't know if they do a 'Happy Hour' every night though.

    Thanks, but I'd rather have my eyes carved out with a hot butter knife.


    That being said, the view at the park at the hospital was amazing. Best recommendation ever from this board.

    Was it better than the Fred one? (Where I was admonished by the moderators in a pm not to be indirectly critical of another poster?) If so, then I am in trouble again. (Also, I can't claim this as completely my own. I have paraphrased it from a college friend.)

    No. You are making fun of the venue. I'm making fun of the poster.
    Kidding. It was a great put down of the place.

    Here is my impression of Bonito. We went there with friends for dinner and to see Nungyen, had a great table, but the service was just okay. The food was good. Later (about 2 years ago) we went for sunset cocktails, and they weren't open.
    I don't know if I will try again.

    I think we went back to our villa above the Christopher for sunset. I don't know about the comments.

    I might add that Bonito previously kicked us out of our sunset view table, for supposedly a
    "dinner reservation". We took our friends there for the sunset view. Not the kicking out part, but when we did get kicked out, they did have a guest sushi chef, and we got some really good sushi there.
