If you love fish, and appreciate attentive caring service, this restaurant is for you. First class fish entrees reasonably priced.Do not be put off by the strip mall exterior; go in for an awesome and friendly dining experience.

Stayed overnight in Marina during a recent trip in California. Frutti de mar was a promising name (literalli meaning sea fruits in the dialect spoken in north east Italy - lived there for a while). By the reviews posted here I was expecting a lot more. The starter was the best part of the dinner and it was mediocre at... More

We stayed at Santuary Beach Resort, and instead of traveling to Monterey, we decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! The food was great! Don't be put off by the hole-in-the-wall location. This place is a gem!

We dined here one evening as we stayed in a nearby hotel. The food was good as well as the service. It's very small but quaint. I had the crab ravioli with lobster sauce .It was quite tasty. Can't remember what my wife had but she liked it. I also enjoyed their house Merlot.

This has to be one of the best meals we've ever had in a completely unpretentious setting. The dishes we chose were cooked to perfection and all the fish was fresh and local - calamari and brushetta for starter, sanddab and grilled snapper, ice cream desert. Simply perfect! Service was very friendly and attentive. We were originally planning to drive... More

You would not think to find a good restaurant in the small Marina community but this restaurant has an excellent food in an unpretentious setting. Food is always fresh and tasty and served with a smile. Price is excellent. There are about 10 tables, so first come, first served. Like everything in Marina, it closes early.

For a small restaurant, in an unlikely location, Frutti de Mar Grill was a very pleasant surprise. Seafood dishes were very good--fried calamari, crab ravioli, and a couple others. Service was polite and friendly. Would happily eat here again. (Also, there are a couple stores nearby, one with fruit outside, and an Asian market where we bought delicious candy.)

Wonderful restaurant Small but personable with absolutely the best Italian seafood I've had in a long time. Had their special and the salmon was cooked to perfection. The linguini was al dente and the oil and garlic sauce with capers, spinach and arugula and sun dried tomatoes was incredible. Great stop on a long trip!!!! The owner is very friendly... More
