Stopped in for a late lunch and I felt like I was walking into a quaint country inn. The décor is inviting, the staff welcoming and friendly, the wines by the glass extensive, as are the desserts. Had a lovely salad and a half basket of wonderful bread. Had seen many positive reviews and they were all warranted.

We consistently look forward to heading to La Bicyclette on our day trips to Carmel. The servers are polite, attentive and knowledgeable and the breads are always freshly made. Its not a large menu given their preference for seasonal selections but its has one item for everyone (a fish, chicken, red meat, vegetable always adorns the lunch menu when we've... More

Every August we attend the Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach and we always dine at least once at La Bicyclette! This is such a culinary treat! Everything tastes inspired and the menu is well thought out. I highly recommend the soups (brought to your table in a copper pot) and bread is a must! We had a ribeye special this... More

We had a very good meal at La Bicyclette. I have to comment that the food is much better than the space and ambience would suggest. Small with tables crammed into every square inch, the hostess stand with the required young college hostess. The whole thing does not suggest fine dining - yet the kitchen is amazing and the wine...

The staff is friendly and attentive. The thin crust pizza choices are good. Found the menu a little limited. Good wine list. Definitely worth a visit.

One of the best restaurants we visited on our travel from San Francisco to L.A. The service is friendly and helpful without being too formal. The food is excellent. The pork chop that I had was really tender and tasty. It was so good that we went back a second night. The menu selection is good because it ranges from... More

The restaurant is a beautiful boutique place, with a warm and cozy atmosphere but a little crowded. The food is delicious but also expensive, but to be fair, this is valid all over Carmel. The pizza isn't worth the price, but the cooked dishes are tasty and nicely presented. The wine connoisseur knows the wine list very well and will... More

The food is simple, healthy and well cooked. The ambiance is great, feel like home. The fig pizza is very special; escargot is cooked without too much oily source; the meat board is fresh. We ordered the pasta dish ( the only pasta), it was delicious. I don't like pasta cooked with too much water, and the dish was cooked... More

This place is very quaint, very charming, very fun. The food is great, the service also, and the atmosphere very nice. We would go here again and again.In fact, we do. And they have gluten free pizza, for those who are interested.
