Fandango Restaurant Review

: Enjoy Pierre and Marietta Bain’s hospitality at this Pacific Grove go-to that’s been in operation since 1983. 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. The croque monsieur elevates ham and cheese into a gourmet soufflé. Paella Fandango is redolent with saffron and features sweet sea scallops and Spanish chorizo along with calamari, shrimp and plump, juicy mussels. Save room for a sweet finish and order 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.
