Small but always crowded, family owned seafood restaurant. Abundant portions of perfectly prepared food. Bouillabaisse is my favorite. Pasta dishes are also fantastic. Make a reservation.

Good snapper and carrot cake, nice place. Good seafood, good attention. Grilled snapper with vegetables and rice very good, home made taste. Home made carrot cake, but it was gone, next time. Kind of expensive this time.

I think probably not pet friendly, I’m not sure how many pet friendly restaurants are in this area, but lots of dog friendly places is CARMEL and CARMEL Valley!
