We stopped in here for lunch before hitting the tasting rooms. It was a quiet day; the patio was peaceful and lovely. The lunch menu is interesting and varied. I had probably the best BLT ever and my husband had the VB Beef Melt which was also excellent. This delicious meal was made even better by the attentive and personable... More

Very nice tables, attentive staff. I got the chef's special, which had all kinds of different seafoods in it. Everything was perfectly cooked, but the sauce was a little watery. After explaining to staff and the chef, they brought out a free cheesecake, which was also very good. The wine, of course, was great, and I got a hot chocolate... More

Had a lovely lunch on Mother's day with hubby and son. Our door seating was lovely and the service was amicable. Food was delicious. We had french onion soup, very flavorful, steak and frites, the steak was good, though undercooked to our order, son still ate it and enjoyed with the fantastic french fries. Salmon Caesar salad was also quite... More

Food is excellent, environment nice and quiet. It's a place we go to with friends when we want a leisurely dining experience and the opportunity to catch up and talk. Service is friendly. Not super fast, but that's why we love it. Interesting dishes, well prepared. Owners are from Peru, and are very good.

On a recent day trip up to Monterey, my husband and I found ourselves looking for a place to have lunch and chill out before our drive home. Our usual stop would be to walk around the gorgeous town of Carmel, or the Monterey downtown. But then we remembered that we had driven through Carmel Valley once inadvertently and said... More

Went here for lunch on the perfect day in Carmel Valley- sunny and warm- to enjoy patio dining. We were immediately seated. It was about five minutes until our waiter could get to us, but he acknowledged us soon after seating. Wine and water were promptly delivered. We both started with the cream of roasted vegetable soup- excellent! Delicate flavor,... More
