Anniversary trip

My husband and I have found food to be delicious, I'm beyond to be unique and comfortable, and service was great. We had escargot and mushroom pizza and the kale salad, each delicious. We recommend!

Had a lovely Sunday lunch. First time in. Not the last. Run do not walk. Worth every penny. Kale salad was perfectly dressed. Butternut squash pizza had a thin crust and was one of the better tasting pizzas.

Our kids enjoyed this restaurant. It was within walking distance - but the food isn't our favorite. I doubt we'd go back. The service however, was very good - nice atmosphere - a little compact.

We love the atmosphere of Le Bicyclette, felt like being in Provence. The service is very good, and our waiter made knowledgable recommendations for wine to accompany the delicious pizza from the wood fire oven. We will be back.

We stopped here for a quick breakfast before jetting off to wine country and enjoyed a delicious breakfast of eggs, toasted baguette and fried potatoes, and yogurt with fres fruit and homemade granola - both come highly recommended. The coffee was also delicious. This restaurant has a fun, rustic, Parisian feel to it and if you weren't in Carmel, you'd... More

We ate a late dinner here our first night in town. The ambience was great; rustic, charming and full of energy. The food we ordered was a bit hit or miss, but I would definitely give it another try.

I have avoided this restaurant for years on purpose - it seems to be loaded with tourists (sorry tourists, no hard feelings - I am a "local tourist"). What a cute place. Just like eating in a eurpoean bostro or cafe. The menu is wonderful and we thought the food was really well prepared. The lunch service was perfection, the... More

Not a "special occasion" place, but asmospheric and lively, with good wood-fired pizza and other bistro fare. They squeezed us in, without a reservation, on a very busy Easter Weekend evening, so we appreciated the effort they put out for us. Recommended.

This restaurant was "overhyped". Great location and atmosphere but service and food was not worth the money. The server was not attentive, showed no interest in talking about the food options, and treated us like a number. No personality.

Being a vegan I am frequently served the most unappealing cuisine at restaurants. It is also so surprising to me that when asked to just leave the cheese of the pizza some places can not accommodate, this was one of them. Before being seated, I stated I was a vegan, can I have the vegetarian pizza with no cheese. The... More
