Enjoy our gourmet Monterey Beach restaurant with your own "window on the bay". For a truly unique dining experience, escape to the Cafe Beach Restaurant; a remote, romantic retreat so serene that the hypnotic sounds of the pounding surf can only be broken by the clink of toasting glasses and a feast of fresh seasonal dishes are served. Enter the dining room, where windows frame a living landscape of unspoiled beaches.

We visited Cafe Beach for dinner. The staff was very friendly. We were seated right away, Joaquin recommended a few dishes for us and cocktails. Jaime assisted him and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a great view of the water while we ate. We didn't feel rushed and we're encouraged to take our time to enjoy... More

The combo of great food (thanks to Agustin and Mauro), great service (thanks, Joaquin and Jaime!), and fabulous views, this is one of our favorite relaxing places for dinner. We saw dolphins from our table and a fantastic sunset. The food is fresh with original preparations. We're lucky to be local, so we can hang there whenever the mood strikes.

We saw dolphins swim by as we ate our delicious and fresh breakfast. The omelette was really tasty and fresh but sitting by the windows and watching the dolphins swim by was awesome. A whale also passed by breaching. Would definitely go again.

Cafe Beach was a lovely spot to sit and watch the beautiful scenic view of the ocean. Our server Laura really made this a very special evening with my sisters & Mother as it was our last night of a "Girls Weekend". Thank you Laura!
