Best Calamari

Since the early 1950’s, Abalonetti Bar & Grill popularized this delicacy and serves over 70,000 pounds a year.

Fried Monterey Calamari

Fried Monterey Calamari has been voted Best Calamari since 1999 by Monterey County Weekly. The breading is different than anywhere else. They use cracker crumbs which adds a different texture unlike bread crumbs or batter. It’s crispy, light, yet neutral to the succulent, perfectly fried calamari underneath. Once you have them, you may be in agreement with the rest of Monterey. Rating: 5/5

Monterey’s Original Antipasto Bar

Monterey’s Original Antipasto Bar includes Roasted Gilroy Garlic, Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Grilled Eggplant, Marinated Mushrooms, Assorted Olives, Roasted Bell Peppers, Feta Cheese, Garlic Spinach, and Marinated Monterey Calamari. This is the best plate of antipasto you will find anywhere! It has the best mix of flavors from sweet roasted garlic and bell peppers to salty olives and feta to vinegar marinated mushrooms and artichoke hearts. But the absolutely fantastic part of this antipasto plate is the Marinated Monterey Calamari made with EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil), red wine vinegar, fresh garlic, and herbs. It tastes like an Italian-style ceviche. The calamari is so tender, it just melts in your mouth. You can also order this on its own as an appetizer. Rating: 5/5

Grilled Monterey Abalone

Grilled Monterey Abalone is panko crusted, topped with a lemon butter sauce, and served with sautéed vegetables and rice. The baby abalone is farm-raised at an adjacent wharf and as fresh as can be. The abalone is tender and soft. The panko crust adds the perfect crispy texture on the outside. The lemon butter sauce is so creamy and the essence of lemon is refreshing. Rating: 5/5


For dessert, take some homemade cannolis home with you. The cannoli shell is just crispy enough to hold in the creamy sweet cheese filling. It will be gone before you know and you will say to yourself, “I should have ordered two.” Rating: 5/5
