The pork tenderloins were dry, the potatoes uninspired. The Key Lime Pie delicious. The presentations were nice, but I wonder if the chef is just past her/his prime.

We had the fried calamari to start... it was so good that we ordered another... we never got around to an entry. Very fresh and fried with leeks and banana peppers, a first for us... wonderful!

Wonderful presentation... cooked to perfection. Seabass fabulous. Joaquin served us and gave us several choices of what we should eat and he was right on the money! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and his service. The plate was very eye appealing as the chef made it very appetizing! We would eat there again!

Our server and bartender were awesome. Very friendly. The view was spectacular. We went in 15 minutes before they closed and they were okay with and very welcoming. Hubby and I have been staying at the resort for over 20 years. Even though there was construction going on, it did nothing to ruin our stay. We will be back again... More

The hotel is undergoing construction so the restaurant is temporarily set up in the lobby. There were children screaming in the lobby, with sound no barrier. The food was very disappointing and rather expensive, given the quality. They are apparently still cooking on the fourth floor and serving on the second because it took a really long time for them...

We stay here all the time when we come the Monterey but have never eaten at the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! My husband had the sea bass which was an excellant choice and I had the prawns in a garlic sauce. Both were suggested by our waiter Joaquin. He was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back.

This is the restaurant at the BW+ beach resort in Monterey. The food was better than expected and breakfast was very good. They serve pretty fast too.

We enjoyed our family dinner at the Cafe Beach. Our waiter, Javier was extremely attentive and made our dinner even more special. Highly recommend the special calamari plate which includes roasted artichokes.
