We were driving a long the coast taking in the sights when we spotted Fishwife. It was lunch time and decided to give it a try. They have the BEST calamari, big thick tender fingers of savory meat. The appetizer was huge, so perfect to share. We also shared the Barramundi fish dinner our waiter recommended, it was tender and sweet. Its an Australian fish we had not tried before.

Monterey Bay has a lot of seafood restaurants. This one is better than many. Fish is fresh and service is good.

We were guided here by the front desk guy from the hotel, and we were not disappointed at all. Place is small but cozy, the fish was fresh , the menu is slightly different from your everyday deep fried stuff, but in a good way,and the dishes were good sized. We cleaned our plates, and we left happy.

This is a great restaurant located just beyond the beaches of Asilomar, and is walking distance to the ocean and beach. It offers and open, cozy, and friendly atmosphere with all types of patrons. This place makes some the best cocktails I've enjoyed in this area, so kudos to the bartender. They always have a wonderful fish special, sometimes two or more, that always satisfies. One can enjoy many different types of fish dishes here, as well as steak which is prepared very well. All dishes are flavorful and use the proper amount of spice...I am often perplexed as to why other restaurants offer seafood dishes which are devoid of spices and flavor. Come here, and you will not be disappointed. I do recommend that you make a reservation or you may have to wait a bit for a table since it's a smaller restaurant. Still, either way I have never been turned away.
