Ate here while on holiday from the UK as our airBNB was 2 minutes walk up the road. Good choice as it turns out. All 4 of us enjoyed all 3 courses which is kind of unusual. Booking ahead is essential as this place gets...More

A well-loved Italian family-run kitchen. Tourist restaurants on the Wharf and Cannery Row can get very pricey, but the Fish House offers fresh, delicious seafood plus, in a home-style, cozy ambience attended by happy staff at a reasonable price. And it's right near the beach!

Well worth the visit. Really good food. Good atmosphere. Had a lovely meal with family. Nothing pretentious about the place just good food. Will certainly return if we’re ever in Monterey again.

Recommended by some new found friends in SF, this little gem did not disappoint. We showed up without a reservation (not recommended ha) but the staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we were seated and salivating staring at the menu within 15 minutes. I...More

The peppered fried fresh calamari were delicious. The crab cake was more like a crab flapjack and lacked adequate seasoning, the crab ravioli had a smokey taste and lots of ricotta...the crab taste was absent. The curried snapper was good.

I think probably not pet friendly, I’m not sure how many pet friendly restaurants are in this area, but lots of dog friendly places is CARMEL and CARMEL Valley!

Yes, there is plenty of parking...they have a parking lot behind the restaurant, but we were able to park in front of it.
