Go for happy hour, stay for the sunset. Watch the sheep graze in the meadow. Local hang out. OK for dinner too.

I have to start with NO ONE that worked there was rude to us!! We had exact opposite. I am 8 months pregnant and everyone was asking about our baby and if they could get me "anything" just let them know. I was excited when we got to eat inside because it was chilly out that night. There really isn't... More

We enjoyed drinks in the bar area for about an hour awaiting a table for dinner. We were then seated at a lovely table by the window. I ordered the prime rib (a veritable SLAB of deliciously tender meat!) & shared my meal with my niece who had ordered the scallops served over spinach & polenta. Both dishes were amazing!... More

We got there around 5:30, and the place was nearly packed. We sat outside on the patio area, so we were only able to order from the "Bar menu", not the dinner/restaurant menu. I had the grilled chicken breast sandwich ($15), and my friend had the hamburger. Both were delicious. The view was spectacular. Word of warning, though, if you're... More

Beautiful place for couples to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner. Price a little steep but the views are breath taking. We had some wine and appetizers to finish our day in Carmel.

Our dinner was good and we sat on the deck. It was a bit chilly but heat was going. Service was efficient and chose deck over a 40 minute wait. We ate there after driving down costal highway from San Francisco . People were pleasant and accommodating .

Dined at Mission Ranch during a drive down the Coast in March 2014. What a wonderful experience, looking out over the fields to the ocean. The meals were excellent and probably rate up there with any we had during our holiday. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. Would definitely dine here again

We had drinks on the patio twice and a meal once...the meal although good was quite pricey for what we received. The catch of the day was $30.00 and the short ribs 29.00....both tasty but not quite as tasty as I expected for the price. However the views can't be beat and the weather is lovely and they have heaters... More

Beautiful surroundings for this fabulous restaurant! Just to go there and have a drink is awesome, but our meals were wonderful. Fresh sea bass with a delicious sauce and my husband's filet was to perfection! Love sitting outdoors. Service was also fantastic! Will return someday!

We arrived late afternoon well before sunset, so we decided to eat on the outside deck. It overlooks a pasture of sheep and a quaint guest house. Everything was tasty- especially my scallops with coconut polenta! We were well attended without being hovered over. The weather was pleasant and a light sweater was adequate, but it can be very cool... More
