"Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart." -Erma Bombeck
A picnic on the beach is Mr. Toy's favorite place. For indoor dining, excellent offerings can be found on nearly every block with sufficient variety to suit anyone's taste and budget. With the exception a few places at the Tourist Attractions, it's hard to find a bad restaurant here. Where there's a high concentration of souvenir shops it is likely there are a few lower-quality restaurants in the vicinity. But generally speaking, when you get hungry just look around the immediate neighborhood and see what looks good. You can't go too far wrong.
Of course, there will be times when it is perfectly appropriate to reserve a table in advance. It's always a good idea to plan ahead for that special anniversary or birthday dinner. And when some of the biggest events come to the Peninsula having a dinner reservation can help you avoid long waiting times. But try to avoid using the internet to pick out where you'll eat every meal weeks ahead of your arrival. We have somewhere near 300 wonderful restaurants on the Peninsula, and barely a handful get any attention on the internet. Planning your meals too far ahead prevents you from making spontaneous discoveries.
Having said that, however, there are a few well-established places off of the beaten path, which you may not find on your own:
OK, you're saying, that's all well and good. But right now you may be relaxing in your hotel room and just want to know what restaurants are close by. For that we will refer you to the pros who have set up a searchable database of local restarants. You can search by category, town, or keyword. While they don't list every restaurant on the Peninsula, there are still plenty to choose from.
Hang some fresh fruit in your kitchen or dining room to show you have good taste. This image from Mr. Toy's Photography Gallery and Picture Shop can also be printed on a variety of home decor and gift items. Get something nice for yourself knowing that your purchase will help support this website.
