Restaurant Review

Frescos Mediterranean is now run by the staff of the Pier House restaurant in Cape May which is temporarily  closed and under construction.

The staff is expected to move back to the New Pier House restaurant  when the construction is completed in the Fall of 2017

The menu is very similar to the old Pier House restaurant which offers many sea food dishes prepared with a Greek Influence

it's a BYOB with three Victorian style dining areas; You can eat on the porch, upstairs, or in the main dining room.

Though, not the best place for a cozy, intimate dinner as the tables are small and close together --- making the immediate environment noisy and quiet conversation difficult.

The service is attentive and friendly.

Reservations during weekends and the busy summer season are a must.

Free Parking is available at the Bank Street Commons Parking Lot, located one block West on Bank Street.

Restaurant is closed during the winter season from November to the 1st weekend in May. During the season, they are open daily for dinner from 5pm.
