my wife and I will spending some time in Newport Oregon next January. Any suggestions for lodging and food?
We loved Shark's, even tho it is dead-center in the tourist strip.
Fresh fresh seafood and not fried. I loved the Cioppino.
Just answered the question for someone else. I also love Sharks most of all-but it's tiny, so be prepared. My folks live in Oregon and love Saffron Salmon and April's, but I haven't tried either (they are big foodies, though, so I trust 'em).
The Sylvia Beach Hotel is fabulous if you like offbeat. I also really enjoy their restaurant-prix fixed meal, very reasonable, family style. I have some fabulous dinner experiences there.
I just spent a week in Newport and had a few good meals, including a great one at Saffron Salmon. the preparation of the fish dishes was outstanding. One of the most memorable meals I have had. I give it my highest recommendation.
The Saffron Salmon is outstanding. The salmon is wonderful, and the spinach salad is to die for.
