Wonderful Carmel Restaurant!

On our last two trips to Carmel we have enjoyed this quaint restaurant, and our only regret is that we didn't try this spot sooner. Wonderful menu choices, full bar service, and a great staff make for a great experience. The owner is hands on, and it shows in the quality. Nice, cheerful dining room... read more

Great food, nice selection of wines, wonderful service and warm friendly ambiance, what more can you ask. Well, if you travel with your four legged partner Le St Tropez is also pet friendly in their well sheltered and heated garden patio. In three separate visits during the past several months we have been delighted with everything about this wonderful Carmel... More

What can I say! We love souffle so this was the place! Nice ambience as we sat in the garden. Shared a pizza and salad which were very good. The Grand Marnier souffle was delightful!

We have been to Carmel by the Sea a number of times but never tried this spot. It was New Years Eve Day and we wanted a quiet lunch and love good French Onion soup. This turned out to be the right pick. We shared the French Onion soup, Crepe De Veau and Croque Sandwich. The ambiance was very french... More

I will admit up front - I love this place. During a visit in December, I went solo for lunch with a book in hand. They seated me in the window so that I could watch the holiday street activity. I had the caesar salad and was delighted by the very fresh romaine. They brought me a pitcher of iced... More

What a disappointment! We thought it was adorable when we walked in but it went totally downhill from there. Mainly young girls handling the table service. All looked as though they wanted to be elsewhere. We started with Kir Royal's to drink...not like any I've had elsewhere but definitely not good. On to French onion soup...so/so but very bland. Then,... More

We were very pleased with our recent dining experience at Le St. Tropez. Starting off with a wonderful champagne cocktail, they bring out a free plate of roasted beets, grilled zucchini and red bell peppers and hummus. All very tasty. We started with escargots which were everything they're suppose to be. We both ordered the Sweetbreads, because we love them... More
