This is a great concept. A fish store that also is a restaurant. The prices and the portions are so unexpectedly affordable. One could not find fresher. Enjoy the water view, experience the fresh catch of the day. All prepared in front of your eyes. No cans for the cooking or chemical laden preservatives added to last for generations available...

Thank heavens we read about the huge sandwich size before ordering. 3 adults and 3 children but it only took 2 sandwiches to satisfy us all and have leftovers! The host welcomed us to the area, made some suggestions for spots we should visit, and capped off our lunch with a free huge wedge of chocolate cake! Delicious!

After seeing reviews of Compagno's on tripadvisor we decided to try it out! The whole sandwich is HUGE and could easily feed four. It was delicious!! I also choose a piece of the chocolate cake to share and we enjoyed every bite. It, too, was a very generous sized piece! The only down side to the deli is that it... More

Our friends told us not to miss this place while in Monterey. We got our sandwiches and went down to the beach to eat them. But they do have some tables there. The sandwiches are incredable. If you go at lunch time, there will be a line. Don't worry its worth it. Just get in line! They might be a... More

This family owned deli has been a neighborhood and military favorite for eons! Delicious and fresh homemade salads and desserts. Great made to order sandwiches!

We found this on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did. The sandwiches are HUGE (a 1/2 could have easily fed both of us, but my husband refused to share). Absolutely the BEST sandwich I have ever eaten. Love the Dutch Crunch Super Hoagie made perfectly for me. Also like that they cater to military. The owner seemed to... More

Read about it, Tried it, Loved It!!!! I've been going to Monterey for many many years and never knew about this place till I read about it. It is everything they say it is. One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Be warned though one sandwich is plenty for two people. Or as we did a lunch & dinner.... More

After reading all the reviews we came ready to pack sandwiches for our hike in big sur ! They didn't fail! We ordered a half sandwich for two and it was more than enough! That means - their sandwich servings and the thickness of the sandwich is big! The layers of salami and mortadella was unending. The hubby didn't even... More

Best and biggest sandwiches around! But if you've never had their cheesecake...you're not living!! Prices and quality are both excellent. Sandwiches are usually enough for two meals. So glad we found this neat place, you'll definitely want to stop by if you've never been!

A little out of the way, but well worth the drive up the hill. The sandwiches are delicious and HUGE, as promised. I got a half sandwich, which was more than enough for lunch. Everyone was pleased with their food and would love to go back when we are back in town!
