This is an interesting place - cozy and dark. The food was delicious and the house Pinot Noir was perfect for our meal.

Looks great from the outside, and the senses are tempted by interested scents and flavors as you pass. However, we found the menu somewhat limited - pizzas, plus a small number of other choices, accompanied by an excellent wine list. The service was good. We ordered an appetiser, and a couple of pizzas, all of which were good and flavorsome,... More

La Bicyclette is a fabulous restaurant with authentic, rustic French cuisine, beautifully and imaginatively prepared. The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. The surroundings are lively and fun. All of the staff are fantastic, particularly Laura and Whitney. In 30 years of visiting Carmel, this is one of my favourite meals and I will definitely return.

Here's the thing - the pizzas are good ant the escargot are excellent. The chocolate mousee is meh. The wine is too expensive but it is a good list. You aren't quite sure what kind of meal you are there for; I miss the more gourmet prix-fixe menu. The service is often a bit rude.

This is just the cutest little place, but that describes just about every restaurant in Carmel. The restaurant is popular. We had a reservation for an early dining time but people without reservations were getting turned away at the door, so be sure to make a reservation. It's worth it.

This cafe is a place where the locals meet to drink coffee, have a bite to eat and visit. The coffee bar is wonderful, the decor was interesting, the food was tasty but the service was terrible. I had to get up and walk to the coffee bar to ask for water and again to pay the bill. My husband... More

Four of us went out to lunch at this charming cafe-restaurant. The atmosphere is unquestionably relaxed and distinctively French-influenced without being twee, with a good use of colour, simple furniture and quirkily interesting artifacts in its decor. The staff were cheerful, helpful and attentive and the place generally had a lively 'je ne sais quoi' about it. The menu -... More
