This is another one of our go-to places for dinner. The salads are always fresh and the portions are plentiful. Most of their fish choices are quite good.

Was a very nice restaurant with good food and great service! Had the clam chowder and it was probably the best clam chowder I had ever eaten! We also had fried prawns that were excellent. I would definitely recommend this place!

This unassuming little place was a very pleasant surprise! Just passing through town, and decided to stop. I had the seafood combo fettuccine and it was amazing! Prices are very reasonable and the service was excellent. Couldn't ask for more!

It is rare to have this fine of service in Salinas. I really enjoyed the attentiveness given. I had the blackened tilapia tostada and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were good and had uniqueness we like. We will definitely be back.
