Description: Enjoy our gourmet Monterey Beach restaurant with your own "window on the bay". For a truly unique dining experience, escape to the Cafe Beach Restaurant; a remote, romantic retreat so serene that the hypnotic sounds of the pounding surf can only be broken by the clink of toasting glasses and a feast of fresh seasonal dishes are served. Enter the dining room, where windows frame a living landscape of unspoiled beaches.

Wonderful presentation... cooked to perfection. Seabass fabulous.
Joaquin served us and gave us several choices of what we should eat and he was right on the money! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and his service. The plate was very eye appealing as the chef made it very appetizing! We would eat there again!

We had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Beach, thanks to our server, Joaquin Benitez, who was knowledgeable and extremely personable. We'll be back!

Our server and bartender were awesome. Very friendly. The view was spectacular. We went in 15 minutes before they closed and they were okay with and very welcoming. Hubby and I have been staying at the resort for over 20 years. Even though there was construction going on, it did nothing to ruin our stay. We will be back again and again!

This evening I had dinner at the Cafe Beach at the Best Western Plus. I had a great server and bartender, Joaquin and Alan. The service was excellent at both the bar and at our table for dinner. Food was good. Was pleasantly surprised to have gotten bacon and avocado without asking for them on my burger. The burger was on a pretzel bun which made the burger a little better then most. The service was excellent for what they had. The main dining room is closed so food is brought from the 4th floor kitchen down to the Cafe via stairs. They seem to only schedule one server and one bartender for each shift making the service slow and being a former waiter myself I can understand completely the frustration the staff has about being short handed. A busser or food runner would have made the meal a lot more enjoyable, certainly faster and higher rated experience. But Joaquin and Alan did an excellent job with what they had to work with.

The hotel is undergoing construction so the restaurant is temporarily set up in the lobby. There were children screaming in the lobby, with sound no barrier. The food was very disappointing and rather expensive, given the quality. They are apparently still cooking on the fourth floor and serving on the second because it took a really long time for them to serve a very disappointing salad.
