We stayed at Carmel Mission Inn just across the street from this small cozy Bisro. We had our dogs so seat in the courtyard.They had their own menu served on frisbees. The both got a cookie at the end. Our food was great and the price was good.

On a Friday night we arrived without a reservation. A terrific decision. The carpaccio was an amazing appetizer, we both could have that every day! Beef stroganoff was hearty and delicious. The Mediterranean burger with a side salad was also very good. Reasonably priced wines, very good service, highly recommend.

My wife and I like to look through of the shops near Carmel and in one center there is Bistro 211. You wouldn't think much of it just looking at it since it's small: think of pizza by the slice small, but you'd be wrong. The food is very good and the wait staff friendly and helpful. I ordered the... More

Ordered breakfast at 1:00 pm from a varied menu. Joe's Special was good and the bananas, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries were the sweetest I've had. Cappuccino had grounds in it, but everything else was good . Service was good but kitchen was a bit slow. We'd go back though .

Love the food, especially the breakfast. Love the veggie Huevos Ranchero... Lunch is also excellent, great menu and outside seating available. Only problem is the hours of operation for breakfast, tried there a couple of times, but was not open... I asked about the breakfast hours and was told there were still trying to come up with a fixed schedule.

A group of us stopped in for lunch on our way through Carmel. The place is small and tucked away in a nice shopping area. They were able to accommodate our group all at one table. The service was very friendly and helpful. I don't know if it was because we were a larger group (10) but it took quite... More

Went here for brunch last weekend and had a very nice meal and great service. Started with bottomless mimosa :). I had classic eggs Benedict - I asked for fully cooked egg whit and received firm yolks as well. The only downside. My son's cheese blintzes were excellent. My egg allergic husband wears able to order a quesadilla, since both... More

We arrived for dinner albeit without a reservation at 7:45pm. We had checked out the dinner menu earlier in the day and thought we'd try it on our stay in Carmel. There were two groups in but no sign of any staff! After waiting for five minutes, we went into the kitchen. We were told they stop serving at 8pm.... More
