Had breakfast on a Saturday morning. Great service and ocean views. Had a veggie omelet which was fresh and tasty. Recommend if you are staying in Cannery Row area.

Great views across Monterey Bay and comfortable settings. Breakfast was really good as was the service we received at the restaurant throughout our stay, both in terms of food and drink service. Dinner was really nice though we thought the price for the food at dinner was a little steep. Saying that, the food was great and we were more... More

I think I would have rated this restaurant better but the host who seated us was off-putting, we made a reservation at his request and came back 15 minutes later for our appointed time. He offered us to sit down and wait which just seemed strange. He then seated us back in an alcove which was right by a door... More

We had a good lunch in this restaurant. The fish tacos were tasty as well as my husband's fish sandwich. We like that they serve sustainable seafood and local and organic greens. The atmosphere is really nice and it's right on the ocean so the view is amazing.

Restaurant is in the Intercontinental Hotel Food options are very good and surprisingly good value. Would have been nice to see lots more fish options but what was there was freshly prepared. If you can get a window seat you can enjoy great views over the bay and enjoy watching the world go by. Well worth booking if you can.... More

We love to try new restaurants whenever we go to Carmel, .ca. This restaurant is a winner! The menu is intriguing and one is tempted to try something different. The restaurant is right on the bay and the scenery is breathtaking.

We stayed at the Intercontinental recently and enjoyed happy hour and a late night dessert at the bar. There are several bar tables near the windows, which you need to be early in happy hour to snag! Another option is a glassed in patio with warmers. Their happy hour wine is priced nicely and is a good wine. The dessert... More

We almost always drop by the C Restaurant when we are in Monterey. We have had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here, and have never had a less than stellar experience. This review is for drinks and bar food after a trip to the aquarium. We needed a drink after dodging all the screaming kidlets, so we dropped by one of... More

I am a foodie and difficult to please, so there, I have said it. I live in Monterey and decided to give this 'high end', 'restaurant with a view' a try. Pass. The room has the ambiance of an upper level Denny's. My smoked duck was pretty good, but the portion followed the 'if it is a small portion, maybe... More

We had lunch here after our visit to the Aquarium. It's in a great location on Cannery Row. My wife had a salad and I had a Turkey burger. Both our meals were very good and our server was friendly and took good care of us. It looked like everyone else was enjoying themselves too. The interior is rustic with... More
