Visiting Monterey-Carmel in a few weeks. Could use some recommendations for good restaurants. Haven't been there in years but liked the Sardine Factory. Is it still good? Any other would be appreciated. Thanks.

We had an early dinner at the Chart House during a day trip to Monterey and it was very good.

We had a quite lovely dinner at the Monterey Fish House several months ago. It caters to locals, not the tourist crowd.

I thought this topic was familiar. Here's an identical thread I started earlier this year.

I like the Fishwife in Seaside. It's low-key, and they have a free appetizer coupon in the MRY airport. I usually grab one as I leave the airport. They also have a Mexican cafe attached to the Fishwife called Turtle Bay Taqueria. I haven't tried Turtle Bay. The Fishwife keeps me happy. Besides, I get plenty of great Mexican food in my boyfriend's town of Watsonville, so I haven't ventured into Turtle Bay just yet.
