“Amazing food and great service”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We came for brunch on a sunny day and it was certainly a great choice.

While the menu might seem a bit short, it actually contains all the MUST have for a successful brunch. The view of the terrace is absolutely beautiful and worth making a reservation with time so you can get a good seat.

As to the food, I personally loved a benedict & eggs dish sort of "California style", with local artichoke, avocado and tomatoes. I loved the local touch to it.

The service was quite good so there is no way this experience could have gone bad, especially when you have such a magic surrounding around you.

“GREAT”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The chef certainly knows what he is doing. The food is great, excellent, and large portions for sure, very generous so definitely makes up for the price paid. We did breakfast each day and was awesome, ordered room service few times and was always great/hot/ they are very efficient in taking order/and delivery! I never mind paying extra for great food/portions. My husband even took time to compliment chef one day and it made chef feel very proud!

“Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We are staying nearby and my husband had the foresight to get a discount coupon. This is part if the lovely Hyatt property in Carmel Highlands. They offer indoor and outdoor seating (outdoor has heaters) with some tables having cove views. My husband ordered salmon and a bagel. It was served with generous portions of cream cheese, red onion slices, tomato slices, and a mound of capers. He rated it very good. I ordered the Lobos Eggs Benedict. Perfectly poached eggs are served atop an English muffin, Dungeness lump crab meat and avocado slices topped with Hollondaise sauce. It was delicious. The eggs are accompanied with fried new potatoes. I am really not a fan of potatoes at breakfast but these were OK. My orange juice was fresh and delectable! The coffee was good and my cup was refilled often. It was a very good breakfast.

“Best meal in Carmel”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We had the best lunch in this restaurant. Although the day was foggy, and we couldn´t enjoy the amazing view this restaurant has.The food was amazing, best clam chowder ever!! Crab cakes and Fish Tacos were delicious also. After the meal we went for a walk around the hotel and had the best pics with Big Sur Coast scennery. This Hyatt Regency hotel is gorgeous. If you plan to visit Carmel, eat at this restaurant or the Pacific Edge. You´ll never regret it.

Great food with amazing views. Good service.
We were staying at the resort and it's worth booking a package with breakfast.
