Breakfast tasted great and the views of the coastline are breathtaking. Dining al fresco w overhead heaters was enjoyable but don't go here expecting great service of any assistance if you have food allergies like me. Substitute fruit for toast, nope. I expect much better from Hyatt.

Views from the patio deck and restaurant windows are spectacular, down to the crashing waves on the rocky coastline and the Monterrey Cypress trees. The food is also very good. Breakfast or lunch here is a treat.

The food and the view here are wonderful! I truly enjoyed my crab Benedict named "Point Lobos" on the menu. My husband ate every bit of his " special of the day" halibut sandwich! This restaurant will be relocated on property, and share space with the dinner restaurant, Pacific's Edge. Love the ambience on the deck!

This was a great find near Point Lobos state park right off route 1. There's a great deck overlooking the ocean. They were so accommodating of our 2 year old, and he was very happy to sit outside. Food was really good!

I ate both lunch and breakfast there. Both were ok, not outstanding. The Eggs Benedict was ok. Nothing special. I had the shrimp salad for lunch. It was basically 3 small shrimp, some tomatoes and lots of greens. I thought for the price they should give you at least a half boiled egg. It was good enough. I would eat... More

Upon arrival at the Carmel Highlands Hyatt, we were waiting for our condo to be available, so we decided to have lunch on the property at the California Market, sitting on the deck for lunch, enjoying some excellent Sonoma Zinfandel, and enjoying some great seafood for lunch on the deck, while enjoying the wonderful view.

Came here twice during our week stay. Great service, nice wines, and excellent food! You can't go wrong -- and you get beautiful ocean views!

No wait, a hidden gem and so glad our friend suggested it. Beautiful view of coast from the nice, high patio.
