We visited recently and it wasn't the best meal I've ever eaten! Before I begin, the views are spectacular and that did make up in some way for the food, but because of the price we paid, not completely! Our starter of calamari was very chewy and the mains were a mixed bag. My husband had a crab filled ravioli... More

To die for!!! The perfect calamari and believe me, I've had lots! Just downright great fish and seafood. Large portions gorgeous view of Monterey Bay. This area is very commercial and touristy but you'll know that going in. Just go. You won't be disappointed.

We came here for lunch and enjoyed the view of Monterey Bay. Food and service were pretty good. We would definitely return next time we visit the area.

Enjoyed taking our Granddaughter to this restaurant. The waiter did a great job and make sure she felt special. The best way to get a tip out of Grandparents is to be nice to Grand kids. This restaurant knows this.

They don't dump frozen fish sticks into the deep fryer at this place. The fish in the fish and chips was fresh and light. Delicious. It's a pretty touristy place going for the upscale money. The walk up take out fish and chips is cheaper than the dine-in menu.

Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle! Friendly staff - could share a dish without getting a disapproving look from the waiter. Steaks also served for the meat lovers but I wouldn't pass on the seafood for everything looks very fresh. Go for it!

The view is awesome and surprisingly so is the food! The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The first night I had the Roasted Halibut and Prawns Served With Seasonal Vegetables, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Lemon Basil Sauce. Delicious!!

We had a table with surrounding water views. We were able to get great pictures of the seals and even a few otters! The food was good, we had a very nice server and the best view possible.
