Sometimes your too tired to drive anymore and you will choose to eat in the hotel that you just checked in. You are in luck. The place is just perfect for a relaxing, laid back dinner. The food is more than plenty on serving size and the make your own tacos for the table is way to much fun.

We stayed at the hotel which was disappointing, but the restaurant was not! They obviously put all their remodel money into the lobby, bar and the restaurant. The food was very good for both breakfast and dinner!

My meal and dinner was made because of service by Joaquin!! His genuine care about my special food requests and food allergies was totally appreciated and the food delish!

Husband and I had a great breakfast here on Thanksgiving morning - wonderful views! It's a little pricier than some local cafes outside of the hotel, but you can't beat the convenience and the views!

We arrived about 11:15 for an early lunch and essentially had the restaurant --- and the massive views of the Monterey Bay and breeching humpback whales seemingly within arms reach -- to ourselves. Service was prompt, professional and very friendly. The food arrived almost immediately. We highly recommend the tuna tacos but they can be a bit "messy". This was... More

This review covers a dinner and two breakfasts at Café Beach. This restaurant is located on the fourth floor of the Monterey Tides hotel and has a fantastic view of Monterey Bay and the crashing surface.

Nothing special but the view is great. It is expensive. We went during weekdays but it was almost full.

We came for breakfast on a Saturday around 10:00. View of the pacific was amazing as always. Wish we could say more about the food and service. The staff seemed peaceful as they were walking around very slow. Tables only half full and we had to wait almost ten minutes to be seated. Menu is small with basic breakfast fare.... More

The ambience of the restaurant was awesome. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not measure up. My boyfriend and I never made it past the appetizers. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and calamari and between the two the total was almost $30. I tried to give the place the benefits of the doubt so I mistakingly ordered the lobster... More

Enter the dining room, where windows frame a living landscape of unspoiled beaches.
