Description: Rocky Point Restaurant is located 10 miles south of Carmel, a mere fifteen-minute scenic drive, on 36700 Highway 1, between Carmel and Big Sur, offering spectacular views of the sea and shore from all window tables. We are open every day - all day. Our guests may enjoy whale spouting, sea otters and pelicans. Enjoy breakfast or lunch on our ocean terrace or in our lounge, or have a romantic candlelight dinner while the sun is setting over the Pacific Ocean. After sunset, our powerful floodlights illuminate the rocks and shore.

“Best place to fill ones senses, soul, and tummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Late lunch at Rocky Point restaurants is such a senses-filled and pleasant experience. The Ocean Salad and Strawberry And Rhubarb Cobbler was heavenly. Together with the edge-of-the-world scenery, it was a meal to be remembered. California central coast is a magical place. Its refreshing climate, rugged coastline, succulent seafood and vigorous red wine attract multitudes of visitors. I am glad I select here as my home. MaryJo and I also met the new owner Dr. Peter Wang and discussed his vision and philosophy, the laborious renovation last year, the refreshed menu and the dedication of the staff. A solid 5 star, highly recommended.

“What a Fantastic Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

For those on a road trip, this is definitely a place to head for. Views stunning, food very enjoyable and we even saw some whales out to sea. We loved it so much we returned the following morning.

“The largest baked spud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

One of the best sunset restaurants and bar in all the coast of Ca.
Every dinner I have had, and that over 20 years, has been GREAT!
Order a steak and baked potato and see the largest spud around.
Great spot just for a drink anytime but get there for the sunset and fall in love.
not a kids place if you wish to make other dinners happy.

“Incredible view, must go, pricey!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Incredible view on the patio. Very expensive so my family ordered 4 clam chowders, and 4 drinks and still spent over $60 with tip.
However it was worth it!! The soup and bread was perfect!! Dog friendly.
We will come here on every trip. ***If your daring; from the parking lot there are some steep paths that lead down to some wonderful tide pools. But it's slightly dangerous. I suggest hiking down around 10am and then climbing back up for some lunch.

“A PLACE LIKE NO OTHER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We came in on Saturday, we were sat at a table right at the window. We were greeted right away by our server Brenda who was charming, friendly and sweat. We could tell she was busy but she never stopped smiling and was very attentive to us. I had the Rocky Point burger which was excellent, my friend had the calamari which was divine. We both shared the cobbler also very tasty. Our server spotted out some killer whales for us which was so awesome to see. Our over all experience was magical... beyond our expectations! Truly a place like no other. We will definitely be back.
