he Golden Fish began with two cousins working together in a Monterey Bay restaurant. After years of hard work and training, Reynaldo and Oscar decided to continue the hard work and long hours sharing their native Caribbean Cuisine with the residents and visitors of the Monterey Bay region. After more than fifteen years at their current location, The Golden Fish has become a favorite with the local crowd and features live music one evening a month during the First Fridays Art Walk.
