This restaurant is a good stand-by place to eat. The food is pretty decent. But I think they try to put too many different kinds of dishes available and that somehow loses some of the quality of the food presented.

My favorite dish from the new menu is the linguini and meatballs, very tasty tender homemade meatballs in a San Marzano sauce which is absolutely delicious, the new appetizer called volcano chicken is amazing.

Trying to find a restaurant our first night in Pacific Grove, we landed on dining at International Cuisine. The service was great and they had a variety of food choices. The prices are average for the area (at least that's what I found); the location is super easy to find, as it is on Lighthouse Ave. and is also very... More

The food and ambiance of this place was just what we needed after a full day of sightseeing. There weren't many folks dining as we got there later in the evening, despite the latter, we had to sometimes flag down our server as he wasn't very attentive. It's right on the main thoroughfare so it was fun to people watch... More

Ever not know what you want to eat when you go out? This is the place to go....they have a bit of everything from pizza to sandwiches, to gyros, to beef stroganoff! Everything is reasonably priced, and provided you can make a choice off the big menu, you will have a good c+,B- meal....not necessarily something to write home about,... More

Huge menu to choose from but everything is very authentic, some of my favorite dishes are The homemade lasagna, the homemade hummus and handmade pita bread, and the Greek feast which has a selection of Gyros meat and chicken kebab on top of saffron rice and it comes with Greek salad and homemade pita bread , Greek yogurt sauce and...

Don't go there! There's not many nice places in Pacific Grove but this is the one to avoid. Prices are very highly, they add 20% tip to your bill, my pizza was bought in a store and put in an oven, definitely not made in the restaurant. Wine is expensive too. I would never got there again.

We ate here on our final evening, and were not overly impressed. It did not seem to know what it was and who it was for. Probably best for larger groups looking to stoke up on food which, in our opinion is just about average. Prices seemed to reflect this. Food was ok but that's about it.
