Great french atmosphere

We have dined at La Bicyclette twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is authentic french and the atmosphere is upscale casual. Our orders ranged from escargot to pizza and they do it all well. It is a fun diversion from the fancier restaurants in Carmel without departing from... read more

I am from San Francisco, so in comparison the food was not exception for the price. They charged for bread. The panna cotta was exceptional, one of the best I had.

We visited Le Bicyclette late for dinner recently and were so impressed, we tried it for breakfast. For dinner, we shared the pate, which came on a wooden board with the usual accompaniments. It was delish! Then we shared a wood-fired pizza-also amazing. This place reminded me tight away of Brussels-casual, French inspires deliciousness. A few days later we tried... More

Loved this place! Pleasantly bustling French cafe atmosphere. The food was excellent and authentic, though not limited to French cuisine. The service was discrete and efficient - we were never interrupted by staff asking if everything was OK, they just noticed what was needed & did it! Our glasses were always full :) and the meal flowed seamlessly from course... More

We went for dinner. I ordered the risotto, my daughter had the sausage/fennel/lemon pizza and my husband had the salmon. We also had soup and broccoli as well as the boudin dessert. Everything was delicious. Honestly, we loved it all. So much so that we went back for breakfast the very next morning. The breakfast was completely my style. The... More

We love this quaint and rustic eating spot in Carmel. The ambiance and charm only exxagerate the yummy and mouth watering culinary delights, along with a great selection of wines to round out the experience. The staff is always attentive, friendly, and helpful. If you go, we highly recommend the mushroom pizza! Everything is delicious, tho.

We got into town right before dinner, found this restaurant based on reviews. Service was prompt and friendly, food was tasty, and we were comfortable as a family though I could see going without kids just as easily.

This Restaurant was very quaint. My wife and I decided to pop into La Bicyclette based on the many excellent online reviews and the recommend of a local DJ , Jaymz Bee from Jazz FM in Toronto. This restaurant was hoping and we considered ourselves very lucky to get the last seats at lunch time. The menu and offered specials... More

Loved the ambiance and pizza at La Bicyclette. Very friendly. Staff fabulous. Would be a 5 star rating if their one and only pinot grigio was decent.
