My husband and I went to Carmel in December to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We did not make a dinner reservation for Friday evening, deciding we would walk around town to find a nice place to dine. We came upon Dametra Cafe. It was new to us so we were intrigued. While overlooking the outdoor menu, one of the staff came out and invited us in. It only got better from there!!! The cafe is small but beautiful with murals on the walls and colorful decor. The owner's and staff were so welcoming. They made us feel like we were part of the family. The food was Mediterranean and delicious. While chatting with the owner, he asked us if we were in Carmel to celebrate a special occasion. We said, "thanks for asking. It is our 40th wedding anniversary!" Soon we were serenaded . What a treat! We ended our meal with their pecan torte...oh my gosh, how delightful! Prior to leaving, we were given a bottle of wine for our anniversary. What a great end to a beautiful evening. We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant and plan on going back again and again.
