The Jewel by the Sea is Loosing its Luster

I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years. Though I do not live in the Pacific Grove area, I love it and stop by as often as I can. Fifteen years ago this place was a real `find’ A low key place frequented by the locals and those few tourists (like myself) who had heard about it via word of mouth. I enjoyed their fresh seafood served like you might find in the Caribbean Southern Italy or Greece.

That was then. Over the years the crowds have grown (along with the prices) and the service has diminished. This last time I vowed to seek out another `locals’ find as the Fishwife is no longer the ‘diamond-in-the-ruff’ that it once was.

Sure the food is still good (not great), but the crowd factor along with the impersonal service is enough for me to move on and find something `special’ like the Fishwife once was.

Grilled Calamari Provencal

Well prepared and presented. One of my Fishwife favorites!
