Food, service and atmosphere are excellent. We dine at the Fisherman’s Grotto at least four times a year for special occasions and sometimes just when we want a great meal. We have lived on the Monterey Peninsula for 40 years and The Grotto is one of our favorite restaurants. MoreOpenTable Diner -

The California Central Coast is rich in sunlight, ocean views, and fabulous food. There are plenty of ways to burn calories, including a hike along the beach, a visit to the remarkable aquarium or a long stroll through one of the large shopping centers! Once you're ready to dine, Carmel is all set to help you out. Carmel cuisine has long been influenced by French tradition, and in addition to wonderful California wines, you can enjoy anything from delicate pastries to locally harvested salmon. Carmel restaurateurs have also done a great job of putting old buildings to new uses. Looking for a romantic spot? Consider making reservations at a corner table tucked into an old house for an intimate dinner.
