If you're diving up through Big Sur, then perhaps you would enjoy Nepenthe in Big Sur, which sits high above the Pacific Ocean with fabulous views of the Big Sur coastline.

If you want to eat right in Monterey, Schooner's Bistro @ The Monterey Plaza is very good. We love the views here and they have a great outdoor patio at Schooner's.

In the Carmel Highland's area is California Market @ The Highland's Inn. This restaurant also has a great outdoor patio with spectacular views of the ocean. Enjoy your time at the coast! :)

Since you posted on the Carmel forum, I'm guessing that you might prefer something there. In the "downtown" area Dametra and Casanova are our two favorite restaurants. Lots of tasty menu choices for lunch and good shopping in the area before and after lunch.

On the bay along Cannery Row in Monterey, we always enjoy the seafood selections and the water views from the deck at Fish Hopper.

If you do want lunch while in Carmel, La Bicyclette is a place we have recently enjoyed two very nice meals. It's a cozy bistro with very good food and service. Excellent desserts, also! :)
