Eat downtown at a variety of San Pedro's unique restaurants--choose from Mediterranean restaurants, steak and seafood, Mexican, or traditional American fare.
There is also an English Pub for the British flavor. Partake in traditional English dishes while sampling the different ales and lagers.
One of the fun things to do in California is eat!! We all love to sample the various cuisines on our nights out on the town or during our daytime excursions. San Pedro has the largest selection of places to eat, both downtown and along the waterfront.
No guilt eating Mediterranean food!!
The Mediterranean diet benefits to health are widely known. With plenty of fruit and vegetables all year round, and olive oil instead of butter, this way of eating has been found to be the best way to maintain good health.
Italian food lovers ... Marcello Tuscany Restaurant at 470 West 7th Street is the perfect choice, known for its traditional old world Italian menu and warm atmosphere.

For great Croatian food, dine at Ante's Restaurant at 729 Ante Perkov Way. It was opened by Ante Perkov, an immigrant from the former Yugoslavia, and is still family-owned. It has served the people of San Pedro since 1945 and brings old country recipes from the Dalmatian coast and is absolutely raved about in reviews.
