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.

“Awesome meal recommended by a fantastic waiter!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We stay here all the time when we come the Monterey but have never eaten at the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! My husband had the sea bass which was an excellant choice and I had the prawns in a garlic sauce. Both were suggested by our waiter Joaquin. He was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back.

This is the restaurant at the BW+ beach resort in Monterey. The food was better than expected and breakfast was very good. They serve pretty fast too.

“Beautiful View - Tasty Food”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We enjoyed our family dinner at the Cafe Beach. Our waiter, Javier was extremely attentive and made our dinner even more special. Highly recommend the special calamari plate which includes roasted artichokes.
