We had both lunch and dinner here in the space of 3 days . both meals were excellent. We particularly liked the short menu, the comprehensive list of wines from Europe and the friendly service. well worth a visit !

My husband and I recently ate dinner here. My husband had been previously years ago and was excited to see what had changed. I had the mushroom truffle pizza that was so wonderful I am going to dream about it. The restaurant is quaint and a little quirky. The staff were wonderful and the food was fantastic. Great date night... More

We went here for breakfast two days in a row during our carmel weekend. Huevos rancheros was the best i ever had. Their chocolate croissants are alao fantastic! They open everyday at 8 am so this is a great spot for breakfast before a walk along the beach!

Came here for a light lunch whilst visiting Carmel. It was one of the recommendations from our hotel. It was noisy & busy & quite cramped with a limited menu. Our choices were ok but nothing to rave about. Again they were in a rush to get you in & out. Also quite expensive!

This place reminds Europe, cosy ambient interior, a bit cold service. Food was perfect, we were at lunch and had a hamburger with fries and confit du canard. The last was really good, with healthy side of lentils, loved it. Drinks are expensive, but they serve beers in a nice way, not only bottle but a glass also is served... More

The restaurant was very busy but we were seated promotly(make a reservation). They had an 11oz steak which we shared without a charge. Different appetizers and different wines. Service was great along with the food.

If you are looking for something a bit different in Carmel, then go to la Bicyclette. This is a delightful, quirky, busy restaurant ... a far cry from the usual tourist haunt. We hadn't booked, but were given a table within half an hour. So time for an aperitif ! The staff were so welcoming and helpful. Our meal was... More

Very cosy and comfortable Mediterranean restaurant serves unusual pizzas which are very tasty . Wide variety of local and international wine selections. That's one of the very good options in town to enjoy your dinner .

Had a great lunch there. They accept reservation which I would recommend. We had a salad and pizza and both were very fresh and tasty. Service was very friendly and attentive. The decor is very quaint.

We have eaten here while staying at Pacific Grove. It's a very cosy restaurant with really warm and chic decoration. Everything we have ordered was great, but I should really mention the pizza with the fig. Unbelievable!! One of the best pizzas I've tasted in my entire life, not kidding.. This place is a definitely must see. Get that pizza,... More
