We sat in the courtyard and had a lovely dinner in the early evening. The food was good, well prepared and came out quickly. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Brought the family here despite mixed reviews - honestly mostly because of the Eastwood connection. Service was painfully slow, and it wasn't all that busy. Food was pricey and just ok for all of us. Interesting ambiance. Would not go again.

Came for lunch with wife on visit to Carmel. Food was very good, sat in the outside seating, weather was great so was perfect outside. Decent beer selection. Service as reviewed sort of slow but we were in no hurry.

We went for an early dinner here on a Sunday night, the restuarant wasn't busy and despite plenty of staff the service wasn't great, we weren't asked if we wanted drinks before ordering, then our main course was brought out and just put on the...More

The legend of Carmel. Formerly owned by Clint Eastwood, he still owns the building-who knows when he will stop by? Kept intact to keep the charm that is the cozy Carmel of yesteryear.
