We visited at Lunch time, the place was fairly busy. Our waiter was friendly and kept our sprites/cokes refilled without being asked.
I had the deep fried Oyster sandwich (my first experience), the oysters were excellent, the view did add to the experience.

We always have at least one meal at Rappa's when we visit the Monterey area. It is run by an old Italian family who has been the original owners, a fishing family. Fresh seafood always.

This is the second time visiting this place & both times the food was not good & the service was even worse. If your looking for a great view of the Monterey Bay then this is a good place but if your looking for great food & great service then this is not the place you want.

This was the perfect venue from which to enjoy the view of Monterey Bay; seals frolicking, pelicans swooping by, and picturesque sailboats nearby. This restaurant is at the very end of the wharf and enjoys an unparalleled unobstructed view. Most of us ordered fish & chips ($14.95), and wished we had split the meal, it was so plentiful. We took most of it home. Our server, Nicholas, was charming and attentive. This turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Monterey.

We worked our way down the wharf with nearly every restaurant set up outside with samples and varying offers. This was the last on the row, had the best view and we were just too tired to go any further. Lucky choice, all the offers made to us by the outside maître d' were honored, food was good, not the best I've ever eaten, but good. The prices are reasonable for a tourist location, wine list was adequate and as I said, the view at sunset was very nice.
