Food Scene

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Marina by far. They do some traditional and some "California" style Mexican food. It's fresh and delicious, try the blackened chicken on some nachos or in a wet burrito!

Locally owned coffee bar serving the finest Italian drip coffee and espresso beverages. No burned coffee flavor or stale karaffe taste, this is my favorite coffee shop in all the Monterey Bay area.

Hip local Vietnamese place popular with the college kids. They don't have the best Pho in town, or the best 5 spice chicken, but its quick, cheap, and the customer service is great.

Need some spam musubi? Some sticky rice and gravy? Or a big helping of creamy macaroni salad? This place is all about good Hawaiian food. There's a picnic table out front and maybe 6 seats inside.

Walk up and drive through only, this is the late night food spot of choice for locals and Cal State Monterey Bay students. Open until 2am most nights and the burritos are dangerously good. Try the Carne Asada "Chips" (french fries)...also the breakfast burritos are amazing...

Some mighty fine sandwiches at very affordable prices. This place does breakfast sandwiches and burritos also. The lines can be really long at lunch hour but they move quick. Don't be shy, step right up to the counter and use your loud voice, it can get busy and loud in there! This is carry-out only, but its only a few blocks to the beach or the park so you won't have problems finding somewhere to eat.

This is just like any other El Torito, Except for the stunning views of the Monterey Bay. Time your dinner right and you can land yourself a window seat to the sunset as you enjoy your dinner. The bar also has great ocean views and decent prices.

Great food, really good beer, awesome location. Local tip, park in the garage at the Portola Plaza Hotel and have your waiter get your parking ticket validated instead of the hassle of trying to park on the street somewhere.

This hotel is nothing special EXCEPT they have a rooftop bar overlooking Del Monte beach and downtown Monterey. This is definitely a hidden gem that even a lot of locals aren't wise to. They offer very reasonably priced happy hour beers on the rooftop bar that you can't beat anywhere else in downtown.

This is an awesome British style pub with a very British selection of beers and ales on tap. The food is downright delicious too, no greasy spoon pub food they have a proper chef in the kitchen.

Entertainment & Activities

Auto and motorcycle races as well as home to the annual Sea Otter Classic bicycle race and expo. Former tour stop for MotoGP. The racetrack and grounds are actually on county property and considered a county recreational area and subject to local rules and regulations. Since it's a campground, that means you BRING YOUR OWN FOOD AND DRINKS even if you are only there for the day to watch the race. Bring your wheelie ice chest and pack your own stuff to save your stomach and your wallet.
