My wife & I have had several great visits to Martini Beach over the past few years during our summer sojourns to Cape May. We've enjoyed the dining, especially on the enclosed front porch with a great view of the ocean, and we've really enjoyed the entertainment, from fine jazz bands, to karaoke, to dancing. It's been one of our... More

We called ahead for reservations and got a seat along the windows on the enclosed deck, which was perfect. The service was very good. I started with the roasted beet salad, which was amazing!! I then had the roast chicken as my entre, which was good. My husband had the Turkish Pizza and Sea Scallops tapas. The pizza was different... More

Martini Beach was the highlight of our stay in Cape May! The porch tables offer a stunning view of the beach- ask to be seated there when you make your reservations. Our server, Tisha, was not only attentive and professional but also a fun and happy person. By the end of our meal, we were talking like old friends- highly... More

Sampler of appetizers is the way to go. A little pricey but well worth the cost - especially when you throw in ocean view while dining.

The tapas were good, could have used a little more spice (not heat but spice...the lamb/beef pizza needed a touch more). The martinis, though, were great...and I don't like vodka at all.

This was our second time at this restaurant and once again the food and service was super! Known for tapas, this is a great spot for fun drinks and a food selection that is great for us "small plate eaters".

We stopped here on a whim after consulting travel advisor one weekend in September. The dining room was upstairs, allowing most tables a beautiful view of the beach. The seafood dishes my family ordered were excellent as well as my rack of lamb! The service was wonderful and we will be back!

Sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean is a great way to enjoy food and drink. The drinks are great with happy hour specials. My preference is to make a meal of the tapas or small plates. The offerings include mussels, escargot, goat cheese and beet salad, wings....all delicious.

This place was crowded on a Saturday night. We chose to sit at the bar for drinks and appetizers. We were glad we did. The drinks were different and the appetizers were delicious. We didn't have to wait to be served. The bartender was hustling like crazy to serve everyone.

Went there on Sunday and went back on Tuesday. Great food and our server Lindsay was not only a great server but she was also a sweet heart. We sat on the porch, had some great drinks, Sandy had about four of the Pumpkin Martinis, she drank them like she just had run a marathon...good stuff. Lobster Mac was excellent,... More
