We recently visited san simeon and had the most amazing dinner at the Manta Rey Restaurant. My husband ordered the Crusty Seabass and I ordered the Scallops. If you want fine dinning this is the place. We come from Main where the seafood is excellent and were highly impressed. The service is also great. We were waited on by the owner himself. Its a small place next to the Quality Inn, but it has a romantic and intimate setting. If you find yourself in san simeon you gotta try it.
