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.

We ate breakfast here and loved the food. Parking here is very tight and limited, so you may want to time your visit to a less busy time of the morning.

I stayed at Deetjen's with two friends and we are experienced travelers. We ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Our consensus was that dinner was good not great. It was very expensive and while we don't mind spending that kind of money on a great dinner, this did not totally measure up. Breakfast however was wonderful!!!! It was inventive,... More
