Monterey Peninsula has so many different restaurants to choose from throughout its three main cities. Some of the most well-loved restaurants are listed here below, based on the city.
The Flying Fish Grill is the epitome of Carmel, California. Started by Tina and Kenny Fukumoto, the restaurant is romantically lit with subtle Asian decoration throughout the building. The food offered on Flying Fish Grill’s menu very much sums up Carmel. Choose from salmon, lobster, noodles, beef, vegetables, halibut, and all of the wine you can imagine. The restaurant was even once featured on The Rachael Ray Show. Do not miss the opportunity to taste a bit of Carmel fame!
The Old Fisherman’s Grotto fits in so well in Monterey. The Grotto has been around since 1950 and has been family run ever since.
