“Veggie Sausage”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Deetjen's is famous for their breakfasts! It's a cozy restaurant with the usual items done very well. The vegetarian sausage is worth a special mention - it's AMAZING!!!!!! The best veggie sausage I've ever had!

“Cute atmosphere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food was pretty good and the staff was friendly but you mainly come here for the old-world atmosphere. It's set in an old-fashioned house filled with lots of antiques and stories about the history of the place. Outside there is some beautiful scenery, so a nice way to walk off your meal. Pricing was reasonable for the area.

“Romantic and rustic, best food in Big Sur.”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is fantastic, better than Ventana, and if you want a side of poetry with your meal, ask to sit in the Robinson Jeffer's corner. My wild ocean trout with wild rice and veggies was perfection. My husband's ribeye outstanding. I enjoyed a beautiful, subtle mushroom soup that was NOT cream based but was wonderfully creamy! Why don't more chef's commit to flavorful, healthy puréed soups?! As we stayed at Deetjen's we also enjoyed breakfast. Everything was outstanding, right down to the loose leaf teas, perfectly steeped.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Stayed at the inn and woke up to a yummy breakfast with my girlfriend. The french toast and the egg's Benedict were delicious. Very cozy... Good place for a couple.

“Good food and old style decor with classical music”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We dined here with family who were staying. The food was great and our server suggested a great bottle of red. It was a bit surreal for us cousins from Worcestershire to dine in Big Sur to the sound of Elgar. The restaurant runs through the downstairs rooms with some open fires, an intimate ambience and lots of anitquey gewgaws.

It's expensive. It's good. I get the impression from reviews that Brunch is good value if you want to go there on a tighter budget.

We were glad to staying at Ripplewood as its great value and the Deetjens cabins are close together and close to the road.
