At the beginning of Monterey Municipal Wharf there is a restaurant that is tucked under the pier, called Sandbar and Grill. It was pretty busy so we decided to try it out. Inside, it was very small but had a cozy feel that I loved.
Calamari, Tender Pieces Pounded thin and Fried Golden. The BEST calamari we’ve ever eaten. They were so tender and crispy. Since then, all other calamari we’ve eaten have now been compared to this standard. We still reminisce about how delicious they were… lol
New England Style Clam Chowder.
Penne Pasta, Prawns and Scallops in Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce. The flavor was light and delicate. The garlic alfredo sauce was just right and did not overwhelm the fresh seafood flavor.
Sand Dabs, Fresh Grilled Fillets served with Tarter Sauce
The sun was setting and it made everything look even more beautiful. Even the Sandbar and Grill’s sign looked photo worthy.
No wonder fisherman come to Monterey Municipal Wharf to fish. This isn’t the clearest photo, but you can still see all of the fish that were right under the wharf. I just wanted to dip a large net and swoop them all up.
All of the birds were very active. They looked like they were in some kind of feeding frenzy.
As we walked back to our hotel, we came across this door. It reminded me of the movie The Life Aquatic starring Bill Murray.
Esteban is the restaurant right next to our hotel. We didn’t have time to try it out during our stay, but it has good reviews and the outdoor area was always very busy when we walked by.
Feeling full and very tired, we decided to head off to bed.
