B/B plus local resident said "perfect for happy hour" and it was. Sheep in the meadow and laconically rural. Patio space very comfortable, chairs inviting, drinks poured from bottles and created at bar reasonable and very much up to snuff. Service un obtrusive but gracious. We asked if the farm had been lambing and were and answered, "Not enough ramming. Maybe next year. " Nobody knew when sheep rut, but all knew the bar menu. That,'s what counts. Shared accompaniments were banal, edible but not much more. We left them un finished not wishing to jeopardise an up coming dinner at another eatery. Our advisors were right. Go there for drinks, the location is lovely, the atmosphere is people friendly and comfortably casual and the glasses of name it did what they should. Definitely a Carmel "to do" You can leave prada and heels with your gucci bag in the trunk of the rental if you want to avoid being taken for a tourist.

Make a point to visit this spot when in Carmel. Enjoy a leisurely drink outside with view of the sheep pasture and ocean. Dinner is first rate with excellent servers. The piano bar provides nice music and the crowd of people frequenting this restaurant varies in age and come from all over the world.

Go for a drink, cup of tea,bowl of soup...any excuse to snag a rail side seat on the patio overlooking the meadow, wetlands, and distant sea and hills. Dinner is fine, just no big deal.

While not the most extensive brunch I've ever seen, every item is delicious and the view out to the sheep-dotted fields and onto the beach is to die for! As a vegetarian, their salads are scrumptious, french toast is yum and their dessert selection is never disappointing. We even saw Clint the last time we were there! Live music provides the perfect backdrop to a lovely meal.

Lovely rural atmosphere, the servers are excellent. The menu is full and the product well presented and more than sufficient in volume. Good prices, excellent wine list. A definite A+
