Oysters on the Half Shell Monterey?

  • s

Where would be the best place to go for oysters on the half shell in the Monterey area? Do they have them at Sea Harvest? Other suggestions?

  1. I have enjoyed them with a glass of champagne at the bar in the restaurant at the Aquarium.

    Domenico's and Abalonetti's on the Wharf.

    Bistro in the L'Auberge Carmel as well as Bouchee

    O'Flaherty's in Carmel

    1. Passion Fish.

      If you're looking for a raw bar type of place, I think they might have them at Sly McFly's on Cannery Row.

        Passionfish doesn't serve them on the half shell, only pre shucked and already in a (light) marinade or mignonette, in a shot glass (at least the many times I've been there), and it doesn't do it for me. Guess I'm a purist when it comes to oysters,....though I may ask them Saturday if they ever do or would....

        Domenico's on the wharf has it's own oyster bar. Love their oyster rockerfeller.
