We have been to this place many times and always have a wonderful experience. The food is always good and the desserts are amazing. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The goulash is a must try as we'll as the pizza. YUM! They make their own Carmel sauce and WOW it is so good. This is a must place to visit and indulge.

Our favorite lunch place in Carmel Valley. We ate outside even though it was a cool day. We always get the pizzas and this time was no different. While my wife had the chicken apple sausage salad while my daughters and I had pizzas that were outstanding (BBQ chicken, Lorraine and flammekuche). Great service. great desserts.

Very nice lunch with my husband and son. Pizza verde was very tasty. I had the beef goulash - comfort food on a cold day. Our son had the chicken sausage salad - very good sausage. The glass of malbec i had was disappointing, nice nose but low on taste. We split the bread pudding which was a great way to end the meal.

Best mahi mahi ever! Excellent service too. And to top it off, the dessert was without doubt one of the best ever. The atmosphere was quiant and somewhat rustic. Will definately go there again whenever possible. Highly recommend it!

We stumbled across this quaint restaurant for lunch while touring local wineries. We were seated along an aisle which made seating tight. Aside from this, the service and food were very good. Would go back to try other menu items.
