Locals love it - gluten-free entrees

I have a friend who needs to eat gluten-free, so this is always our choice. I love the atmosphere - outside on the patio feels like the south of France. The food is beautifully prepared and I highly recommend Le St. Tropez!

Wanted to try a new restaurant in Carmel and this was just the place to try. A warm and friendly place with charm and informative people willing to offer suggestions. The atmosphere is typical of a French Bistro you may find in Paris. The food is very good with out being pretentious and with a generous portion. It appears that... More

Raw oysters firm & salty & delicious. Let onion soup cool a minute; so good. Crisp salad an edible joy. Swordfish flavorful. Blue fabric booth pleasant perch. Kind & competent staff.

On an oddly cold night, this was a cozy small restaurant just off ocean avenue. The food was good, but the service was beyond compare excellent. Each of the wait staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. There is some outdoor seating in the back and the side door does not shut by itself, so if... More

We decided to dine in at this restaurant because of the great reviews it has received and after finishing our meal we both agreed that it was the most terrible meal we have had in a long time. Although the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was beautiful, the food completely lacked in quality, taste and presentation. Our scallops... More

We had been to the Carmel Plaza shops and many others and stopped in for a couple of appetizers - the crab cake and the cheese plate - and drinks. Wonderful menu and atmosphere.

This French based family restaurant is always fun to come back to. Their lamb dishes are very tasty and their fish and steaks are delicious! The atmosphere is really cute the wait staff is always friendly and professional.

My husband and I came across St Tropez while visiting Carmel and were very pleased with the service and food selection. Have a good cocktail selection that is well done. Food was great but would say a little pricey. Would definitely come back for the excellent service and patio.

If you can get a seat on their patio do it it's so quaint! The food was delicious and very nicely presented. A little on the expensive side for just burgers and salads but the food is fresh and that's what counts. Will definitely come back here again.
