Beachfront restaurant Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel...

Hi all,

Will be staying at Hotel Abrego , Monterey midweek early September.

Am looking for a few suggestions for beachfront restaurants for dinner where we can watch the sunset if there's outside seating.

Can anyone suggest anything suitable in Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove or Pebble Beach?

Thanks in advance

Anne

Sandbar and Grill on the municipal wharf has harbor views and a good view of the sunset. Fish Hopper on Cannery Row is another good choice for views.

Schooner's is nice. Also, consider Massaro and Santos on the Coast Guard Pier. Every table has a harbor view. In Pebble Beach, Roy's at Spanish Bay is good. They have a bagpiper that plays at sunset. There are fire pits behind the restaurant where you can have a drink while the bagpiper plays.

if you get tired of restaurants, i love bringing a picnic and finding a nice spot along the 17 mile drive and enjoying the outdoors.

Not being a massive fish eater, schooners is now on the breakfast list as it looks lovely but just not enough choice on the dinner menu.

The search continues for dinner

Let us know your thoughts on the newly opened Beach House. It used to be the Old Bath House restaurant many moons ago.

You won't find another view property like it on the peninsula. Just keep in mind that the sunset will be behind you, as the windows here face east.
