“Great Seafood!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The seafood is fresh and prepared with simple but delicious sauces. This is a small restaurant so you'll want to make reservations. Great ambiance in a great location. You have to try this place!

“Best Birthday dinner EVER!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We flew from DC to celebrate a big birthday for me with family from San Francisco and I wanted a special place-boy was this it! Coming from DC I have been to all of the "good" restaurants and Flying Fish Cafe is at the top of my list! Our waiter Rich could not have been better-just the right combination of smart and knowlegeable and gently attentive....the owner even played Happy Birthday to me on his banjo! All of our fish were prepared perfectly with sides that complimented the tase.. and the hot pot was a great choice as it was all cooked right at the table, adding to the delightful experience. If this restaurant were in our area we would be Friday night regulars!

“If you are in Carmel, desirous of really good food with many excellent options - make a reservation here.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Read about this restaurant in every review I could read prior to making reservations - was optimistic and my wife & I were not disappointed with any aspect. We enjoyed very nice wine, a complimentary appetizer, followed by our own appetizers, then main course - absolutely delicious - period! Very highly recommended.
