Managed to sit outside and as such a wait for the restaurant decided to have the bar food. Would highly recommend. View great, crab cakes and burgers delicious and no wait! What more could you want on a Saturday evening!

We went without reservations and were able to get a table on the terrace. The inside was packed, mainly it seemed due to the lively piano bar. Bethany, who I think is the manager, took great care of us. It was pretty cold, but there is plants of the tall heaters to keep you warm. Dinner was very good. My... More

Having driven up from Malibu along Pacific Coast Highway we were staying at Mission ranch overnight and had pre dinner drinks and dinner in the exceedingly popular Mission Ranch Restaurant - good job we were staying as you can't make reservations for dinner back in the UK but hotel guests get preferential treatment. We had a superb bottle of 2014... More

The most picturesque views around....classic Carmel restaurant. We have eaten here numerous times, as well as, having our son's rehearsal dinner here. The menu is very diverse, from burgers to fish to roast beef or steak. Sitting on the patio, under the heaters, looking out over the sheep pasture, a glass of wine...it doesn't get much better! And they throw... More

A great evening to just relax and unwind with a few wines and fine food. Great view looking towards Carmel river. Relaxing piano music.

We went to the Sunday Brunch and sat outside on the patio. The view was beautiful! The staff was welcoming and attentive. The buffet was excellent with a great variety of selection. I would highly recommend!

We visited this restaurant on New Year's Day for dinner. There were 3 of us and the wait wasn't too long for our table in the dining room. While we were waiting we enjoyed the view from the patio, where we watched some deer walk around the field. There were several heaters in the patio, but we opted for a... More

Ate here with my parents recently. We ate later about 8pm so unfortunately we did not get to enjoy the view. We ordered both types of ribs and chicken sandwich. All were good, not the best I've ever eaten but decent. Service staff were very friendly. If I was to come again I would probably come when it is bright... More

Starting off, service was slow. It would take forever for drinks to come out. After a while, I opted to just go straight to the bar. Once we were seated for dinner, service (new server) was amazing. She took pictures for the group, treated us well, and kept up with the entire group (15+ people). I forget the name, but... More

Two couples found this picturesque location while visiting the Cali coast. We enjoyed cocktails at sunset and a very relaxing dinner on a warm winter afternoon.
