The place to go on Sunday morning.

Sunday morning breakfast here was delightful. The food was great and the pastries I took with me were as well. I wish I had found this place earlier in our trip -- I would have gone here more often.

We're always on the lookout for a good lunch place in Carmel so when a friend recommended this place (and it looked good on Tripadvisor) we thought we'd give it a try. I just had a lowly burger as I haven't had one in years and had a taste for one, but it was very nicely prepared. Juicy meat, done... More

Food, atmosphere and staff are wonderful! Pizzas are thin and a great appetizer to share. Great selection of cheeses, pate. Fried chicken is a great new addition to lunch menu. Always festive and full tables. May have to wait 15 min or more for seating, but hostesses handle seating times very well and keep you informed and moving along. Must... More

I have eaten thousands of breakfasts in restaurants but this one truly surpasses them all... I came back for dinner this evening and the meal was exquisite. Warm atmosphere, wonderful service, delicious wine and outstanding food. I can't praise this place highly enough.

La Bicyclette is one of those places you wish you had in your neighborhood. Although is was a crowded Sunday lunch, the staff were cordial and prompt. I also got the sense that the manager (owner?) checking in at tables actually cared. The pizzas by the way are great. As was the special tart and the affogato.

Two couples, two pizzas, some gorgeous lentils, a fish entree, and several glasses of great white wine made for a lovely lunch. Service was a bit curt but the place was jumping---lots of happy people eating in this charming french bistro.

Love this place. Had a late lunch there yesterday. The sausage fennel pizza was awesome. The staff was very friendly and the ambiance was so French bistro in a very comfortable way. Will visit this restaurant again during our next visit.

We have been to the restaurant for both breakfast and lunch and it really is the best place to go in Carmel, the staff are friendly and know the menu well. The pizza's are as good as you would find anywhere and there is a lovely feeling to the restaurant.
