Fantastic breakfast!

We picked this restaurant last night due to the crowds that turned out for dinner in an off season. The ambiance is French bistro and they pull it off very well. Service is attentive and prompt. The menu is inspired with many of the dishes emerging from the stone oven in back.... Yum. Even the... read more

Ate breakfast at La Bicyclette in Carmel By The Sea this past Sunday. All meals are cooked in a brick oven! Breakfasts are fresh, very French, and truly delicious! Eggs are perfect, and they make their own sausage and bread. Will return again.

The food is excellent. The service is good. I ordered a wonderful pear salad and pizza. I skipped the desert but they looked delicious.

Food items are not unusual but the atmosphere is French style bistro. We enjoyed lunch so much we returned for a take out pizza. Their trout with various vegetables was excellent and well presented. The hamburger was over the top with pickled onions, cheese, etc. served with fries in a basket. Neighbor table gave it a long mouth open look.... More

La Bicleyette is a sister restaurant with a pricier Carmel restaurant and just as good! We have had many dinners there. The food (including pizzas and freshly baked breads) is tasty, interesting and good. Service has been fine with knowledgeable wait staff. Breakfasts have also been good but are a bit pricy. We used to enjoy the restaurant more when... More

Good menu with a wide variety of possibilities for dinner. Squash pizza with ham was wonderful. Items on the menu that I have not seen anywhere else, which I like.

This restaurant had excellent food and service and was very accommodating to our party, which had two children who were six months old. We waited almost two hours for a table and it was well worth the wait.

We stopped by here for lunch with a group of 7 (4A, 3K). We came early enough, so the wait was not too bad. We didn't have a reservation, so tip #1: have a reservation. We ordered three pizzas, 2 salads, and an entree. Food was good and a bit different from what we're generally accustomed to, but not in... More

This place is absolutely divine! I just lunched there with my gal pals. We shared a margherita pizza and had beet salads and a pear salad. Everything was delish. Service great. Atmosphere great. I've gotten things to go, in the past, but this was first time enjoying dining. Will do again, for sure.
