Great views, terrific service and a wide variety on the menu will bring us back.
Massaro & Santos is upstairs in a building on the Coast Guard Pier, overlooking the bay, marina and hills of Monterey.
We were four for dinner and ready for a good time, which we had.
We started with a variety of cocktails from their full bar and then checked out the very expansive menu.
Rob and I started by sharing an order of pasta puttanesca - which was a huge portion even divided by two ($13.95). Our friends started with an order of oysters Rockefeller ($10.95), which literally disappeared in front of my eyes. She said they were some of the best she’d ever had. And he had the prawn cocktail ($14.95), which also included fresh crab. Next time I think I will order this as my starter, it looked great.
For our main course we ordered; My choice was – stuffed salmon ($24.95), a large fresh salmon filet stuffed with fresh crab meat and accompanied by sautéed vegetables. The salmon was yummy and one of the specials of the day.
Rob ordered the rib eye ($24.95) and it was fine, nothing out of the ordinary, it came with veggies and garlic potatoes (too much garlic, he only took a tiny bite).
Our friends; She also ordered one of the specials which was the crab legs ($24.95), it seemed to me like a very generous portion of long meaty legs. He had the crab ravioli ($21.95), which looked good as well and very creamy.
Our pick from the wine list was a Rombauer Merlot ($55).
The service was very attentive and friendly, and the kitchen seems to be well run.
This would be an ideal place for lunch as the views of the Monterey Bay are outstanding and at night it is romantic. The restaurant has plenty of parking and it is easy to find.
