  • You've meandered down the wharf, marveled at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and now you've worked up an appetite. Where to eat in Monterey that is both filling-serving up great food-and romantic? NileGuide is here to help you figure out the most romantic spots to wine and dine in Monterey, starting with this Top 10.

    Fresh Cream is an experience for all the senses, not just the taste buds. Serving decadent meals paired with inventive cocktails and award winning wines is just the beginning. Soft lighting, visually stimulating plates, delicious smells, and an intimate ambiance create an overall experience that puts Fresh Cream at the top of this list. If you are looking for a romantic restaurant to woo your sweetheart, Fresh Cream is the place to go.

    Passionfish (Number 4) is just as devoted to sustainability and ethical practices as it is serving amazing food. Winner of the Monterey Country Weekly's 2011 title of "Best Restaurant in Monterey County" is not something to be taken lightly. Passionfish beat out some of the area's culinary heavyweights to take that title, and it plans on defending it by continuing to serve innovative cuisine that is as good for the earth as it is for your appetite.

    Some classic spots are on this list, like the Fish Hopper Restaurant (ranked 10 th here). Peppoli, Number 7, is another old time fave that continues to win new customers and keep them coming back for more. As a North-Italian inspired staple in the exclusive Pebble Beach region, Peppoli takes the culinary history it carries very seriously. Peppoli is no pizza parlor. It's Spaghetti alla Carbonara, gnocchi, and Tuscon T-bone for two-carved tableside-are in a league of flavor all their own.

    You can have a nice meal at many of Monterey's restaurants, even a clam chowder stand or two. But when you want to go out to impress and have a meal to remember, start with the ones listed here for suggestions on where to go.
