“Ended up here by default and were pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our first choice for dinner turned out to be a total bust and we walked around town trying to find and alternative. This exceeded our expectations. We started with the salmon en brioche with arugula, chevre and caramelized onions. This was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. We shared a filet with their bearnaise suce and seasonal veggies. The sauce was amazing. A special thanks to Sergio, our waiter. He was fun and attentive without intruding. A worthwhile visit for anyone in Carmel.

“Gluten free heaven in Carmel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at Le St. Tropez. Lovely spot in the heart of Carmel. Food was great. Best gluten free pizza my kids have ever had. Virtually the entire menu could be made gluten free, and still tasty. Our server was very friendly and attentive, suggesting spots in the area to visit.

“So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We walked around Carmel and checked out some of the restaurants and to be honest, from first impressions walking around, Le St. Tropez would not have been our first choice, but other places had a wait list and we were hungry, so we tried it. It was so good we actually went back the next night.

The place is not pretentious in any way. The decor is a bit dated (or maybe just not chi-chi), but the great welcome, awesome service and fantastic food make the ambiance.

We had two really really good dinners here. We were laughing at ourselves when we both admitted we wanted to go back again our second night in town instead of trying one of the other many restaurants in Carmel, but the food was just so good and our experience was so lovely. We had other nice meals on our trip up the central coast - and one other really great meal in San Fran, but if I had to pick where to go for dinner tonight, it would be Le St. Tropez no question - if it wasn't 2000 miles away now.

Thanks to our lovely waitress of both nights and to the chefs! Your really made our time in Carmel memorable.

“Drinks and appetizers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

On a very busy evening we dropped in for pre-meal dining. Even though many were turned away who didn't have reservations, we were seated right away. Such beautiful decor...very French . Lovely appetizers. And it's walking distance from The Pine Inn.
