This is my second time at Deetjens, staying for 2 nights. We ate at the restaurant 2 nights and one breakfast. Everything on the menu is fresh and flavorful. The decorations are fun and good vibe and servers.

Excellent restaurant for dinner. Good service, lovely setting. Better value than Post Ranch Inn. NB - they don't take Amex so we called them from our hotel to pay them. Thanks guys.

A quirky wonderful spot, with a series of smallish, low-ceilinged rooms full of character. We only ate breakfast, which was very good (not cheap). Eggs benedict and french toast both excellent.

This hotel Inn and restaurant are probably my favorite travel destination anywhere! Would have stayed at the hotel but didn't book it in time. Went for brunch instead and had a simply lovely meal. If you find funky charm mixed with high quality to your liking, this is the place for you. My shoulders go down the minute I'm on... More

Best breakfast in Big Sur! Relaxing and wonderful breakfast experience. The service at Deetjen's is top notch. My coffee cup was never empty. The food is outstanding! Tasty with good sized portions. We have eaten inside and outside. The inside is so funky. Make sure to check out all the decorations and pictures. The outside is relaxing in beautiful gardens.... More

Had an excellent dinner here. The food ain't cheap, but it was high quality. Better make a reservation if you plan to eat here. It fills up, even on a week night.
