This is something else, not standard menu. Very nice. Plates nicely served. And not too expensive. Looking forward to come back another time. Reservations needed during holidays

We stopped here (as advised by our guide book) for lunch en route to San Francisco. It's about a ten minute detour into the quaint little town. It's worth having a wander and taking some snaps! The tavern is lovely and old (by US standards) and has a great atmosphere. It did smell a bit like an old people's home... More

A classic place to visit when being in the SF area. The tavern looks very traditional outside and inside and offers a lot of character. For an outsider it is also interesting to watch the locals. The creamy artichoke soup is delicious. Also the salads and the sandwiches.

Good restaurants with a lot of fishes and seafood dishes. The fish is really fresh and the dishes quite tasty. The price is a bit too much.

I went here for lunch with family including an 8 year old grandson. I decided to stick with what Duartes is famous for and had the Artichoke -green chilies soup that comes with bread and then the berry pie. There was a delay in getting the grandson's burger out but the service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about... More

We went to eat here after staying at the pigeon point hostel about 20 min away. It is a local landmark. The food is ok. Be sure to go to the deli down the street and get fresh artichoke bread.

We ate at Duarte's Tavern this morning, arriving there completely by accident. We had pulled into town for a cup of Joe and then thought it might be nice to find a little place to sit down and have some breakfast. We asked a very nice, older lady if she could recommend a restaurant, and she pointed out Duarte's Tavern... More

Sunday in jeans. Nice light in the sky. Maybe there is a spring or fall chill in the air, or maybe it is summer swelter on the peninsula. Whatever triggers it, I am not sure. But those are the days that we jump in my husband's latest vehicle and do the drive over the foothills to Duartes. Our route often... More

We passed this place on the way south from San Francisco on a misty wet day. It was nice to warm up with a bowl of clam chowder. I also had the locally caught flounder sandwich - the fish was very nice. My wife had the fish tacos which were also good. There's a wide range of choice for all... More

Expensive meal. Encouraged to get the crab sandwich. It was served on wonderbread and the crab was served, flaked, like tuna fish and with mayo. Not what we were expecting. The service was slow, and in the end not worth waiting over an hour for.
