In 1983, Walter Georis converted a charming old house in Pacific Grove into the restaurant Fandango. Among his first patrons were Pierre and Marietta Bain. In 1986 Walter sold Fandango to the Bains who reopened the restaurant at the end of the year with Pedro De La Cruz their head chef. Since then Fandango’s ambience has remained constant, although there have been a few major physical changes. A few years back the Bains added an upstairs dining room, complete with its own kitchen. In the summer of 2001 they converted the outdoor patio into a new private dining room. Today, along with its two main dining rooms, Fandango has five private dining rooms, the smallest seating eight people and the largest seating fifty.
