Nice place for a good lunch!

Three of us stopped here for lunch before a flight back to Florida from the Monterey Airport. The price for the area was in line with the competition, and the service was good. The Menu highlights their Clam Chowder, and although I have had better, I will admit it was very good and I wouldn't... read more

Went here for drinks and possibly a quick bite but decided not to eat. I ordered an Old Fashioned and received a glass with a small amount of bourbon and a whole lot of Sweet & Sour mix in it. The bartender didn't say he didn't know how to make one or ask anything about it, just pretended he knew... More

If you are looking for a diverse menu - hence the name - this is the go to spot. If you are a nationality that is not showing on this menu, I would be offended - haha! Pretty decent food all the time, goes from good to excellent - most times in the very good range. Service is very attentive... More

The menu has to be one of the most eclectic around. Middle eastern, European, American, Seafood, must have been some Chinese in there too! The owner is ? Jordanian and at least some of the wait staff Egyptian, the music was by old white guys with spectacular eclectic skills. Although I would not rate the food as anything special, the... More

Delicious! I have Celiac disease and I have been dreaming about their gluten free clam chowder ever since. They made a gluten free pizza for my daughter and the chef came out to explain the process for protecting against cross contamination. My family enjoyed their food as well. Huge portions-- so enough for lunch the next day!

The International is one of our favorite places to go when we come to Pacific Grove. The service is always gracious and they greet us as if we matter. The pizza is wonderful. Made however you want it. Love this place.

We had lunch at International Cuisine on weekday afternoon in early July. The quality and quantity of the food was good, but the food and beverage service was exceedingly slow. Our waiter was trying to provide good customer service, but he had seven tables to handle at one time. The bartender had no customers but he didn’t help out with... More

I frequently stop in for a glass or three of wine or some of their imaginative and delicious pizza. The service is always first-rate, I have no complaints about the food, and I am always welcomed. A regular place for regular people. My favorite.
