Wonderful Lunch With The Family

Le St Tropez was very accommodating. Had to change our reservation for lunch at the last minute and they accommodated our request. The outdoor sitting is a gem. Our server was a little aloof but she granted our every request so it's forgivable. The food was wonderful and tasteful (see attached... read more

Having been sadly disappointed earlier in the evening at another restaurant we found this restaurant just by crossing the other side of ocean Avenue. Warm friendly staff and stunning food. Stayed on chatting to manager about all manner of things. Food - hot, tasty and quickly served.

I highly enjoyed my dinning experience here. The wait staff were all very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Everything on the menu was tempting. We ordered les escargots, house made charcuterie, French onion soup, bread basket, wild mushroom ravioli (entree), and two souffles for dessert. Our most memorable dish was the house made charcuterie.

We had not eaten at Le St Tropez in over a year. Too many good places to eat in Carmel. We are locals and enjoy trying as many places as possible. The evening was very nice with really good food. The Green Bean soup was amazing. The best that we have ever tasted. Everything was good. The wait staff was... More

Had an 'early bird ' dinner, so no problem with getting a table. Actually sat in a booth towards the back. Quite warm as fire was near by. The sign out the front, advertising 'the best French Onion Soup in Carmel' enticed me to try out this restaurant. Am a F O Soup aficionado after sampling many in Paris. Absolutely... More

It's not so easy to find French food in Northern California anymore. Carmel has 3 or 4, this one being very good. We found that we could actually converse, a rarity in restaurants these days. Atmosphere was pleasant. Service was very good. Food was very good. Wine was a bit pricey. Food was not cheap by any means, but food... More

We had lunch here and the food was okay... Service was attentive however the wind corridor that was created by the open door meant we froze! Really spoiled what could have been a nice lunch... Ask for a table away from the door!

From all the great reviews, I was looking forward to a great meal. I had the Crepe De Veau and found it very bland tasting. My husband had a pizza, which he enjoyed and my daughter had the chicken sandwich. My husband had two glasses of wine and made the mistake of not checking out the price first. Set us... More

Pros: central location, delicious traditional bistro food (we loved the braised short ribs and shoestring potatoes), friendly service, charming South-of-France decor. Cons: Not expensive. So that's another pro!
