We stopped here for cocktails, and were blown away by the gorgeous view. Cost us $35 (including tip) for a glass of red wine and a bloody mary. Yes, it's pricey, but the view is breathtaking.

Had a quick drink and appetizer st this restaurant on a busy Sunday afternoon after Point Sur Lighthouse visit. You have to go here at least once on your visit to Carmel. Touristy but worth stopping for the views and drinks!

A perfect end to a business trip with my wife, Bloody Marys and Gourmet Cheese Plate for lunch and relax and wind down on TGIF. Beauty sunny day with breathtaking views and great company. Pricey but worth it.
