Unfortunately, we never got past the front desk. when we arrived, the hostess had her back turned to us talking to her friend on the phone about what she did last night blah blah. ... after five minutes of being forced to listen to her conversation, she got off the phone, never even turned to face us, said "i'll be right back", walked into the back and came back (ten minutes later) to a packed waiting room, where upon she silently stared at me as if I was supposed to say something, so i said "table for two" and she said that will be 25 minutes. f that. we left and went down the street to the bakery w/ excellent cheesy artichoke bread. not the famed soup, but it'll do.

Pros: everyone says they have great artichoke soup

Cons: couldn't get past the rude hostess

Duarte's cream of green chile soup is delicious, especially when paired with their fresh, still warm sourdough / French bread. The price has soared in the last few years, or I would give 5 stars. Their fried oyster sandwich is also very good. Good atmosphere.

This is pretty much one of my favorite places ever to eat. Their bread, pies, and soups are all homemade. They have pickled things from their garden that's out back. Their Artichoke and Chile soups are amazing. They are even better if you mix them. I would suggest the peach cobbler, the olallaberry pie, and the apple pies.
I have always had amazing food and service here!!!

This is a great place to get in out of the coastal chill. Order a cocktail at the bar and stay for lunch or dinner. Portions are large and food is imaginative and good. Plenty of familiar choices, as well as truly original options. They're famous for their artichoke soup and the crab sandwich is muy delish. Great people watching, too. Lots of locals, lots of tourists. Always busy, so you may have to wait, but service is speedy and friendly.

It's a tavern, bar, and restaurant all in one. The people are relaxed, service is great, and the food is delicious. If you go here, I would get the food that you can't get elsewhere such as the cream of artichoke soup or oyster stew. Both are just amazing and come with wonderful warm homemade bread! The last time I went there, I was smart and ordered a bowl of soup and had pie for dessert. I was stuffed. If you order a full meal, be prepared to take a piece of pie home. They have several pies but they are famous for their ollalieberry pie -- to die for. Their strawberry rhubarb is also great -- not too sweet.

Love love love this place.

It's true about walking in the front door and feeling like you've stepped back in time. The "regulars" are there enjoying fun conversation & good food with their friends and the employees have been there for years. The chile soup is great as are the fish entrees and olalliberry pie!! This is a great place for a good meal around sunset, after a long day at the beach just 2 miles away.

Pros: Fresh fish and excellent pies. Very casual atmosphere.

Cons: Runny, tasteless mashed potatoes

.

Everything was good! Sourdough bread was good. Artichoke soop was good. Petrole sole was really good. The mashed potatoes were like my mom's. Even the homemade ollieberry pie was good (i am not a fan of dessert). This is real, simple food prepared really well.

Pros: food, price, ambiance

Cons: slight wait

Duarte's is like a throwback to an earlier time. In the center of Pescadero, a tiny town hidden near the beach, Duarte's draws you in with an old fashioned neon sign with a martini glass. Once you're inside, you see that the same people have been working at Duarte's and visiting there for years. They serve you with a genuine warmth that makes you fee like you grew up next door to them. The food is heartwarming - try mixing the artichoke soup and the green chili soup. I didn't grow up with food like this, but somehow it still takes me back home.

The artichoke soup is unique and amazing!!!! Although often crowded Duarte's is a nice small town restaurant with unique food, and pleasant atmoshpere.
