We tried the Fish Hopper for lunch and it was the best meal I had in Monterey. The service was fantastic and the view from our table was great. I had a special, which was mussels, clams, crab, scallops, shrimp, all in a tomato based broth served with garlic bread. The flavor was amazing. My mouth is watering just typing... More

We were visiting Monterey and decided to have some seafood. Upon doing a quick google search, we immediately decided to go and try Fish Hopper. We reached there at around 12:50 PM on a Friday and were hopping for big lines. They did have lines however, we were on our seats within 5~7 minutes. Our table had great views of... More

Dinner was delicious. I had the grilled artichoke appetizer. It was unique and very good. Waited about 15 minutes for a table by the window. Well worth it as we saw a school of dolphins swim by.

The food was not the best I have ever had, but with all things considered, especially views of the bay, the meal was quite enjoyable. Attentive servers are always ready to meet your every demand.

This was our last meal enjoyed along the Californian coast after a week long trip up Highway 1. We had an early lunch. The plates were beautifully presented and tasted just as nice. We arrived a little after 11:00 and were able to be seated quickly at a very good table in a sunny spot overlooking the water. The wait... More

The restaurant is on Cannery Row and has rows of outdoor seating options as well as window seats with gorgeous views of the Monterey Bay. The macadamia crusted halibut and the albacore were both delicious. The staff were knowledgable about the wines and were able to make recommendations. Lunch was expensive, they have good service but you are definitely paying... More

My spouse and I were in Monterrey for several days. This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel as close and inexpensive. Correct on both points. It sits over the water near the aquarium. If you want a good meal with a great view, this is the place. Asked to sit outside and enjoy the sea air and be... More
