Alki Neighborhood: (Restaurants in walking order from Beachwood Apartments)

La Rustica: A hidden gem tucked into a small residential neighborhood. Located across the street from Weather Watch park is some of the best Italian food in Seattle. A family owned restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. Make sure to save room for their famous Tiramisu made fresh daily by the owner herself.

Cactus: Located on the corner of Alki and Beach drive, this casual yet Vibrant spot offers a delicious, Southwestern-Mexican menu & a long list of tequila drinks. This is a great spot for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.

Sunfish: Stop here for battered fish and chips with a great tartar sauce and view of the water. Simple and quick bite, a great first stop in trying all of West Seattle’s Fish and Chip spots.

Fire Tacos and Cantina: one of the newest spots on Alki known for their birra tacos and pitchers of frozen margaritas. You can't go wrong stopping in at this fun spot.

Il Nido: Make sure you get a reservation for this bustling Italian restaurant. Located in an old log cabin Il Nido is known for high end seasonal pasta with great wine recommendations and pairings.

Gyros on Alki: This place makes you feel like family. Delicious Greek food with generous portions and flavor.

Harry’s Beach House: hip spot with my favorite french fries in town and a great supporting menu. A perfect place for date night, brunch with friends, patio hangs, basically for any occasion.

Alki Spud: Serving up delicious Fish and Chips panko style. Great to pick up and walk across the street for a beach side meal. Don’t forget the Clam Chowder here is always a great option.

El Chupacabra: The music is always on point and the atmosphere is a great place to celebrate a Tuesday with a taco or come late night for a killer happy hour. My favorite spot on the Beach for good, come at me.

Christos on Alki: Family owned pizza shop brings you back to the 90s with a great mixture of greek and italian food. Greek hospitality at its finest.
