The Cliff House is a hotel, restaurant, and reception facility which overlooks Ocean Beach and is currently under the care of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It contains three restaurants Sutro, Bistro, and the Terrace Room which serves an upscale Sunday brunch.

The Cliff House is doubly well known for both its precarious cliff-top locale, as well as the fact that it has been destroyed and rebuilt three times.


Until May of 1966, you could take a super-touristy SkyTram ride from the Cliff House to Point Lobos.
