Golden Fish Seafood Restaurant is a family-owned joint featuring Salvadoran-style seafood fare, plus meat entrees & pupusas. The restaurant features outdoor dining and is even pet-friendly. Golden Fish has become a favorite with the local crowd, and the First Fridays Art Walk features live music one evening a month. This is hands down the best seafood in the Salinas Area. They would provide a more upscale dinner service, like cloth table cloths and napkins, as well as candles on the tables in the evening. They cover the table cloths with white paper, and that adds to the charm. They also offer private dining and a kid's menu at a competitive price. Their signature Fish Bowls filled with fresh fish served on a bed of rice with salsa, guacamole, diced mangoes, and beans. Save $5 your second dinner entree.
