“Enjoy a bit of France at La Bicyclette”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

The bean soup and the mussels seemed quite like times I have had them in France - though with a little different edge. It is a lovely, and relaxed place. I would say the wood fired pizzas are wonderful though not quite French!

“Great breakfast, amazing coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

Breakfast here was my wife's favorite meal of our 4 day trip to Carmel.

The coffee is amazing.

She loved the French toast and I was very pleased with my poached eggs.

Great decor. I wish we went back for dinner and lunch

“Charming French Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We stumbled up Le Bicyclette as we walked around Carmel. The decor, the menu and the host were warm and welcoming.
Our servier was superb and charming and the good was delicious.
My Pizza Champion with a truffle oil was a treat and I devoured all of it!
My friend's meal of a beet salad and pork entree were gorgeous and well-prepared.
We highly recommend it.

“Perfect lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We have always loved this little restaurant, and now that they have expanded next door, it is easier to get a table. Terrific soups and tasty salads, especially the duck confit salad with goat cheese. Side of bread is enough for several to share! Just lovely.

“great pizza for late lunch when many others places were closed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

The feel of a bistro - rustic, wooden, relaxed atmosphere - enjoyed mushroom pizzas mid-afternoon - wood-fired pizza oven - attentive service and the only place on the Central Coast where I was hydrated by the time I left - they left us a bottle of water, after I requested it - many other restaurants on the Central Coast gave us water by, it seemed, the drips....

If I was back in the area, I would come back for lunch - not very fancy but quaint and fun....
