Fandango Restaurant Review

: Enjoy owners Pierre and Marietta Bain’s hospitality at this Pacific Grove go-to that’s well into its third decade. After a warm welcome, dive into the heartwarming comfort food. For a light lunch, order the tangy chicken and lemon soup when it's available. The salad with house-cured lox is a savory treat. Rack of lamb is a tender flavor-bomb, cooked medium rare with a bit of smoky char from the grill. Paella Fandango is redolent with saffron and features sweet sea scallops and Spanish chorizo along with calamari, shrimp and a plump, juicy mussel. Save room for a sweet finish; if you order only one dessert, make it the profiteroles. Scoops of coffee ice cream in crunchy little puff pastries melt gently into warm, dark chocolate sauce and whipped cream on the plate. Fandango is worth making up something to celebrate.
