Visiting the Monterey Peninsula is always a special occasion, you do exciting things throughout the day such as whale watching or wine tasting, activities that allow you to explore, sense and feel the essences of the Peninsula. When evening starts to draw down it is our nature to seek out places of warmth, security and relaxation. Certainly, your room at our hotel fits all of those requisites, but we need to eat and make a little merry at the end of the day in a warm place. There are three out-of-the-way areas that locals frequent to get away from the mainstream and chill a bit. If you are partial to ocean views and fresh fish, the Sandbar and Grill is easily accessible from the commercial fishing wharf and welcomes fish-lovers of all types with fresh fare. On North Fremont St., Monterey Cookhouse represents one of the best places for wood-fired, smoked cuisine. Close to the center of Downtown Monterey, the Cookhouse prides itself on steaks and fish cooked in their unique way. For a taste of Old Monterey, Restaurant 1883 is your best bet; their menu is varied and offers fish, meat and vegetarian options. Restaurant 1883’s wine cellar is storied to be one of the largest on the Peninsula. The Monterey Peninsula sports over 250 eateries of all description and one is sure to fit your taste.
