We made a stop to Carmel-by-the-Sea and came across this restaurant. Outside seating was perfect! The bread basket was great (ciabatta) and the pesto was delicious. I think the crab and corn bisque was a huge hit-salads were delicious. My husband had the Croque Monsieur...More

Surroundings of the restaurant are really nice even as the heaters and plaids. Dinner was good, not great and therefore we felt that the menu was a bit overpriced. We had a nice evening as a family but as we left as last sitting outside...More
