We stumbled in almost by accident though a tour operator had mentioned a place owned by Doris Day. We all had forgotten the name though. As luck or fate would have it (Que sera?), it found us! The best food on our trip so far: Doris Day's chicken salad. Do not go to Carmel without stopping to have it. You... More

This is a very ecclectic establishment with outdoor dining, indoor dining and a lounge all available in the Cypress Inn. The food is well prepared and the service is excellent. Staff are very pleasant and attentive. The menu is limited but the food offered is good.

My husband and I were so pleased that we were able to get a table for dinner. The overall atmosphere is friendly and inviting. We were greeted with a sweet waitress who made terrific suggestions for us. The chicken piccata was delicious and my husband loved the short ribs. We got the coconut creme brulee and brownie a la mode... More

Terry's Lounge at the Cypress Inn in Carmel-by-the-Sea is a splendid place to rendezvous with friends and family for drinks and light refreshments in either the inviting lounge in front of a crackling fireplace, or outside in the patio. Dogs are welcomed in both locations. The service is courteous and the menu diversified, with the club sandwich being a favorite.... More

Located within Doris Day's Cypress Inn. We stopped here for a drink but ended up ordering appetizers. I had the fried Calamari. Tasted a little curry but still delicious. Our server Olivia was very friendly and made us feel extra welcomed. Perfect end to our day trip in Carmel.

With beautiful music. The trio communicates well with the attendees, both musically and with light conversation. You can order libations and snacks, chat with others or sit back and relax. Delightful! My only suggestion would be different seating. I felt bad for those who only had plain chairs on the edge. We were on the sofas, but they were too... More

Upscale in Doris Day's hotel the Cyprus Inn famous for its dog friendliness. Small restaurant in the bar; up scale all the way; has a new bar manager who really knows his stuff and will undoubtedly bring the lounge to another level. Great garden for drinks and eating; strut your dogs if they are well behaved.

Enjoyed having dinner and beverages with friends. If you have a dog, this is a place you want to visit and be seated outside in the patio area.

How fantastic that you can bring your dog inside the Cypress Inn and sit with them in the bar/lounge area. The lounge has great atmosphere along with a TV. Service was great even on a busy weekend during the peak tourist season. There is a lounge with live performances and a lovely outdoor patio. I just wish they had a... More
