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!

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.
