Not to Be Missed

Le Saint-Tropez in Carmel-by-the-Sea is one restaurant not to be missed. Its cuisine is excellent and reasonably priced, with the latter being something of an exceptional rarity for this quaint and charming village.

Way too much dressing & sauce & fat. If that's reeled in, this is 1 of my top 10 in Carmel. Great prefixe deal. Delicious flavor profiles, good wine, cute ambiance, service is fine.

On vacation in Carmel, we headed to Le St Tropez for dinner. I am highly gluten intolerant and loved that almost everything on their menu can be prepared gluten free. They even offer gluten free bread-- which is certainly hard to come by at most restaurants. Great food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

Last night we dined here for the second time. The 3 course meal with a glass of wine is a great deal and if you dine before 6:00, you receive an additional 10% off of your bill. The French Onion soup is not to miss! My entree was the steak which was a huge portion and flavored very nicely. The... More

The Restaurant is very pretty. All French designer blue and yellow with pictures of places in France. When we walked in I was a bit nervous as I was the only person dining with a child. The host was awesome! He promptly sat us in a cozy both and provided my son with comic books and coloring. They also have... More

We dropped in with a party of 8 for lunch. The owner was most accommodating. The restaurant has a limited menu which I prefer. Do not expect fast food as the entrees are not dished up from a pot. Reasonable prices for Carmel. Our only regret is we could not get back for dinner.

This is a charming French restaurant with very good service and a wide range of menu offerings. We had a very nice dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is small and intimate, and I am sure it is just lovely in the winter. We would certainly eat here again.
