Came here for meal with family. The worst service we have ever had in USA. Such a shame as we love Carmel and there are so many other wonderful restaurants. Rude, grumpy waiters.

We sat at the bar, have a couple of bloody mary and beers. Nice and friendly mexican barman, it is a good option for a quick stop after walking the town.
