Our family spent a week in Pacific Grove during the last week of July, 2013. The Camembert Cheese Small Plate/dinner menu, was truly the most exquisite thing I have ever eaten. The thicker slice of cheese was toasted, brown and crunchy around the edges. Port Wine and fig reduction covered the plate along with blue cheese crumbles. The cheese spread on the toasted bread was fresh and delicious. Sweet at first bite, but it had the tang of the blue cheese at the end. We are sorry that this restaurant was one we found at the end of our vacation, not at the beginning. We would have returned multiple times. We did stop in on our final day for a piece of their famous Olalliberry pie. DO NOT MISS this treat. You won't be able to eat it back home, wherever home is for you. Fresh cream and raspberries on top were the perfect finishing touch.

Best suited for more mature appetites and wallets.

The food was great and fresh. Everything we had was tasty, particularly the beet salad and the roasted chicken. We made a reservation for dinner, which was wise, as people were waiting as we left.

Arrived for an early lunch (well worth getting there early). We sat out on the deck. Service was excellent and our steaks were cooked to prefection. Couldn't resist the apple pie which was fresh and tasty. We'll be back.

We loved this place so much, I am posting this while we're still eating!
Cute little place, friendly staff (sorry about our neon shoes blinding the staff, lol), excellent service and the juiciest tastiest burgers we have had in YEARS! We will definitely stop by again the next time we are near Pacific Grove.

The Red House Cafe is in "downtown" Pacific Grove. The food is classic California with fresh ingredients, and outside dining available. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is well worth visiting.
