We stayed at the beach resort for three nights at the end of a tour and the location is spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and dinner - one of our standout memories was breakfast with waves crashing down in the background and the sight of pelicans coming into land so smoothly and elegantly inches above the water........and the...

Only meal I ate there. I would be embarrassed to charge those prices for a meal no better than Denny's.

The view is incredible. Wait staff was attentive and not intrusive. The dinner menu was a bit limited, but the food was good. The clam chowder was very good as was the beef slider. We were staying at the hotel, so it was very nice to have fine dining on site.

We have been going here for the past five years. The breakfasts are amazing, great pancakes and eggs benedict. The staff are wonderful and thew view is captivating. The recent remodel is very appealing. A good place to see the creatures that live in Monterey. On Sundays you can get breakfast until 2pm!!

Over the years we've dined here many times. This splendid view restaurant has a panoramic view looking west from Fishermen's wharf to the northern tip of the Monterey Bay. The visible sunsets are always interesting, sometimes superb. The salads, entrees and desserts are very good. My wife and I each had an outstanding dessert. With the entrees the sauces and... More

Sits on the top floor of the Best Western. Dinner was very good at a reasonable price. We had breakfast the next morning and liked it. You can't beat the view of the ocean.

Sat in the window and watched the waves crashing on the beach yesterday. We had fish and chips and turkey club. Good food but slow service. LIked the menu selections - Tapas, salad (even a Kale one!), Burgers, Sandwiches and dessert. Decent prices. Not enough fish on the fish and chips and a bit too greasy for us. There is... More

Saw swimming and jumping dolphins and sea lions or otters from our room and also the hotel restaurant. Amazing views from the restaurant. Renovated and nice lighting and... More
