Can't Wait To Go Back

Recently tried breakfast (or somewhat of a brunch) here the other weekend and was very impressed. Reminds me of what you would experience in Italy which of course I am a huge fan of. Fresh, healthy and delicious! Have also had dinner here a few times, great place to share salads and pizzas.

Had an impromptu meal here whilst passing through Carmel. With my husband's interest in cycling we were keen to experience this cycling themed restaurant with their Tour de France menu. The restaurant is fairly small and I would advise booking if you are staying near by. The waitress was able to accommodate us and we were advised we only had... More

Nice place to enjoy a end day! Delicious pizza. But don´t forget came before 07:00 pm. It´s a good signal, because a lot of people looking for La Bicyclette.

The food was great but the ambiance was a bit, umm, sketchy. We were there during the big car show, so people were everywhere and very loud and boisterous. The restaurant was brimming with people, but the staff handled it well and were cheerful. Pretty good value for the meal, too.

I was traveling with a friend in the area and we went to the Bicyclette for a breakfast. Fresh juices, excellent croissant and great atmosphere. We had a chance to see the evening menu and the beautiful wood oven so came back in the following 2 evenings and mornings to try some other interesting selection from the menu ! I'll... More

Loved this place, one of our favorite meals during a 10 day trip to northern California. Food was seasonal, delicious but unfussy and the restaurant itself feels very personal, nicely quirky and really welcoming.

Would have given 5 start except that, in my opinion, the decor needs some updating. Maybe sacrifice one table to add some more comfortable seating and space where you don't feel all crammed in. The food is awesome. Just wished they would serve the truffle risotto for lunch again.

We made reservations here and I advise you to do the same. Really charming spot with good food, great atmosphere and a nice wine list. We're glad we went.

Lovely french setting and quaint breakfast. Daily bakery items. Great service too. They incorporate their wood fired oven into many dishes.
