“Surprised”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Pleasantly surprised about the quality of the food; very flavorful and creative! Also surprised by the lack of customers; does this place ever get busy? If not, how do they stay in business? There should definitely be a bigger crowd here on a Friday night for dinner.

Will come back and try other dishes; the Cajun Tilapia was delicious and fresh!

“Salmon Salad is amazing!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Every ingredient was present in the large, fresh, delicious salad. Salmon grilled to perfection then placed on fresh local greens, served with lightly grilled bread on a large oval plate. Dessert this visit was key lime pie(flan is fab also). Very nice wine list featuring local wines. Excellent service /food. Inside/outside dining. Old Town Salinas gem!

“Good little seafood spot!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

Stopped here as I was passing through for a business trip. Got the lobster bisque and shrimp dish with capers. Both were great. (Could taste the shells--meaning they were very fresh). The server was very quick and friendly. Definitely recommend!

“Best seafood in Salinas,CA”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

The Owner came to our table and explained the selection. All the fish is fresh and grilled to perfection I recommend the mango salsa on everything all for $14.99.

“Romantic, reasonable price, great food”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

This place is special to us so not all may agree. To some the appointments may seem ordinary, the food lighter than expected. But we love this place- green new zealnad mussels with their special sauce, sweet mango chutney with fish and black beans - to us it is unusal and sweet, and very very good fish, especially the sandabs, a Monterey area specialty I am told. If it isn't pricey or formal enough for you for a weekend dinner, by all means go for lunch! And definitely try the lobster bisque.
