Hubby had the seabass sandwich and I had the tuna sandwich which was amazing (how strange to ask for a recipe for a simple tuna sandwich, but the mixture of herbs and veggies made it so different... read more

I ordered the salmon and artichoke pasta with parmejan cheese. My husband ordered a fish sandwich. Both were filling and exceptional. The waitresses both brought doggie treats for our lab.

The seared sea scallops were delicious. We were given a free appetizer coupon from yelp for checking in here, and we had the choice of 4 different appetizers. It was a pleasant surprise! Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. The lobster bisque was wonderful as advertised. We would definitely come back!

This restaurant was somewhat busy on the Saturday night we went, but the service was still prompt and friendly. The seafood was delicious, everything was presented nicely, and the berry pie for dessert was heavenly. Good place to visit in downtown Carmel.

True clam chowder afficianados owe themselves a visit here. Terrific chowder, nice mini loaf of sour dough bread with refills of the bread on demand, pleasant staff, a nice assortment of wines by the bottle or glass. Heck, they even offer a lovely plate of sand dabs at a reasonable price, a dish not easily found and not always prepared... More

When travelling with someone who is highly allergis to gluten it is sometimes difficult to find safe places to eat out. We were therefore excited to be offered and entirely separate gluten free menu with details of preparation. The non-gluten free paella was also great.

Hi Paul, Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm glad you and your companion stopped in! I understand how difficult it can be to travel and still stay gluten-free.
