Very nice staff, meals are decent, and prices are reasonable. Feel free to ask for special dishes or a certain way you'd like something cooked. They are very accommodating.

It is rare to have this fine of service in Salinas. I really enjoyed the attentiveness given. I had the blackened tilapia tostada and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were good and had uniqueness we like. We will definitely be back.

We love to go the Golden Fish for lunch and dinner. We enjoy the friendly service and very reasonable prices. They always have our favorite "specialities" available and we always leave satisfied and happy.

If you are visiting Salinas this is a great place to eat in the downtown area. Reasonable prices, fresh tasty food, great variety along with friendly owner(s) and staff. The lobster bisque is definitely worth it. Would visit again.

I stopped in this small restaurant because I wanted seafood. I wasn't disappointed! I had the Combo fettuccine plate and my daughter had the fried calamari and prawns. It was delicious!

When in Salinas, eat great seafood at Golden Fish. Central American brothers (I think they're brothers) have a good menu that you can pick anything, and have an outstanding meal. My favorite is their green cashew tilapia, or the Calamari Provencal. Stay for the food after pondering the atmosphere..... you'll be glad you stayed.

There are a lot of food choices on the menu; salads, sandwiches, pastas, some seafood.The food we ordered could have been better, salt and pepper seem to have been lacking in all dishes. The waiter we had was nice and friendly, but we probably will not go again.

I had lunch today with companion at the Golden Fish Seafood Restaurant. We had the Clam Chowder, one bowl and one cup, with toasted French bread, and we split the calamari appetizer. The clam chowder was New England style and it was excellent. It was freshly prepared today, and it was delicious. The potatoes were done, the clams were still... More

Delicious food, creatively prepared, beautifully presented. Today at lunch I thoroughly enjoyed their "Camerones Cleopatra" - fresh scampi sauteed in a white wine, shallots, and garlic cream sauce. It went quite well with a glass of Morgan Chardonnay (Monterey). Service is friendly and fast. Decor is casual and inviting.

We are in the middle of an 8,000 mile road trip. One of the great things on a trip like this is the people we meet and the discovery of some wonderful places to eat.
