cmc05ad has indicated that this thread is about Italy

I know the place Christopher is talking about on noambit.com ...but I can't think of the name either. It is a resturant in Cinque Terre Italy. The outside terrace is right on the beach and the train runs overhead every once in awhile. There is a plaza with a playground just inland from the restaurant...The kitchen is right to your left when you walk through the door and then there is a dinning room and off to the right of that is a more open space which can be opened if the weather is good and then umbrellas and tables towards the beach outside this area.
Does anyone know what the name of this place is in Monterosso Cinque Terre?

You must be talking about "Ristorante Belvedere" which is on Piazza Garibaldi. I remember this place because I had an absolutely amazing meal with my hostelmates (We were staying in Levanto). I remember taking a picture here because I had such a good time (that whole day seemed magical). I've just begun loading pictures, so perhaps I'll put it up on this site, although it'll be a while till I get to those haha. I sat out on the patio just as the sun was beginning to set. Although we couldn't see the sun (cliffside) the sight in front of us was still one to behold. I had the best pesto I've ever had here. I remember afterwards, we walked under the tracks and got a gelato just a few yards from the restaurant. There was also a band playing that night on the wooden stage-like area right @ the intersection of P Garibaldi and the path leading to the Battelli docks. I'm sure this is the one

Oooh, I found its website:

It seems you are right,NantesFC.
In the 90s I rented for some years an apartment at Monterosso and then at Corniglia. Have you been at restaurant 'Aristide' in Riomaggiore and 'Marina Piccola' in Manarola?

I haven't but I will give them I try this summer. Besides that great restaurant in Monterosso, I ate out at one in Levanto. Besides those two I spent my time eating at cheaper places (sandwich shops in Monterosso, Pizza D'ercole in Vernazza, etc.)
