If you aren't a regular patron of seafood restaurants, you'll likely have a hard time choosing from their mostly-exotic menu options. Is the salmon fresh and healthy?

This guide will help you determine what to order when dining in a Newport Beach seafood restaurant. Start Off With a Salad The free bread basket offered by most restaurants is indeed a tasty treat, but not really a nutritious or interesting appetizer choice. Instead, go for salad, particularly a colorful vegetable salad with a hint of vinaigrette dressing. This is perhaps the safest choice so that you don't end up overeating later on.

Hidden within the picturesque scenes of Newport Beach is the renowned Balboa Island, a specially-designed group of three man-made islands (Balboa Island, Little Balboa Island, and Collins Isle) in the Newport Harbor. The island is notably one of the most expensive real estate areas in Orange County, California, and with over 3000 residents on the 0.25 square mile area, the demand for dining venues is quite high for restaurants on Balboa Island. Amelia’s Balboa Island For over half a century, classic Italian and fresh-caught Seafood dishes have been delicately prepared with love by three generations of the Seton family (from the Amalfi Coast of Italy) since 1961. Reminiscent of Grandma’s Italian kitchen, menu offerings include Linguini with Clams and the ever-popular Fettuccini Alfredo (with your choice of chicken, shrimp, scallops, calamari, or any combination).
