“Great dinner, fantastic fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2014 NEW

Had dinner here while spending the weekend in Carmel. Cozy and casual little restaurant (seats 45) with friendly wait staff. Had shrimp curry soup -- light soup in a vegetable broth, spicy but not too spicy. Black bean halibut entree absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Overall very nice dining experience. Would definitely recommend it.

“Flying Fish always pleases”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2014 NEW

The Yin Yang Salmon is delicious and sustainably wild caught. The owners, Kenny and Tina are incredibly gracious hosts. Some of their wait staff have been with them over 15 years, so it is a very smooth operation. Cozy, warm decor, an interesting menu and their version of Asian chips and salsa cannot be beat.

“I would put this between good and very good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2014 NEW

Not really a fan of the atmosphere. You feel like you are in a cellar, which is kind of anti-Carmel, all about climate and views.

The food was very fresh and pretty good. Not toe tapping.

Prices are a bit expensive. But then you are in Carmel.

“Very tasty fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2014 NEW

We had only one night in Carmel and decided (based on reviews) that this was the place to try. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the same position. You can't go wrong here. Fresh fish, tasty preparations, in a cozy setting. Nice!
