We arrived late and did not want to go to the restaurant so we ordered room service. Really good food and served until 8;30PM.

The restaurant was very busy when we got there and we were lucky to have a table. The service was good, friendly and quick, and we had a couple of drinks while waiting for our meals - they were probably too busy for the kitchen to be able to keep up with the orders. We enjoyed our meal when it... More

My wife and I had two breakfasts and two dinners here. The food and service were excellent and much much better than anything we experienced in Carmel the previous three days. Recommend it!

My husband and I have eaten here before. Normally we have ordered a sandwich, breakfast or a hamburger. This time I ordered the a la carte crabcakes. I have never seen crabcakes that look like dark canned tuna. Needless to say they were not very good. They were spicy. My husband said his chicken sandwich was very good. One night... More

The food as well ad service was average the vegetables with my entrée were cold when served. The entrée was very spicy which I have never had spicy meatloaf before. My wife's scallops were very sandy, I wouldn't eat there again personally.

Breakfast was fine; nothing to rave or complain about. Same with dinner. No reason to make a special trip here, but decent, uninspiring choices to fill the belly of a hungry traveler weary from 4+ hours on the road.

We had been trading for 3 weeks in California and stayed at the Best Western for 1 night. We had lunch at the Cavalier. My husband had the burger and I had the chicken Cobb salad. Both meals were presented well, large portions with fresh produce. They were really delicious and well priced. The atmosphere is cosy. The next morning... More
