Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely little restaurant! The food was very good, although nothing blew us away. The best thing was the service, which was friendly and fast.

This French restaurant was highly rated onYelp, so we decided to come here for dinner on our last night in Carmel. Upon entering the restaurant, you come into the bakery where there are delectable delights just staring out of the case. The restaurant is small with tables spaced far apart. The ambience is lovely. Our server Mizuri (spelling ?) was very attentive and provided great service. Our table of four shared two appetizers, the tuna tartare, and the stuffed mushrooms. The chef left out the almonds on the tuna tartare at my request. The tuna had good flavor, but it didn’t look like high quality ahi tuna as it didn’t have that deep red color. This dish came with only four tiny slices of baguette. Certainly not enough toast with the amount of tuna, the proportions were off. The stuffed mushrooms I didn’t even enjoy. It was creamed spinach in a mushroom with a piece of cheese slapped on top. No creativity with that dish. My husband had the beef bourguignon for dinner and absolutely loved it. I tasted it and the flavor was outstanding. My cousin ordered the duck done two ways and it was also a delicious dish. My other cousin and I ordered the chicken pot pie as our server said it’s the dish the restaurant was known for. I was surprised that it was more of a shepherds pie because there was no flaky pastry encasing the filling. The top was a layer of mashed potatoes, which they threw under the broiler to have a bit of texture. It was a thick layer of potatoes, again feeling the proportion was off. More potato than filling. The flavor, however, was amazing and the chicken was very tender. I was just disappointed because chicken pot pie is with pastry; shepherds pie is with mashed potatoes. So there were a few positives about dinner, but I wouldn’t go here again as I found the experience not as wonderful as the other restaurants I’ve been to in town.

The atmosphere seemed genuine gentile, country French. While known for its patisseries, we chanced upon this establishment for dinner on a Wednesday early evening. We started with mushrooms stuffed with spinach and cheese. They were tasty but unexciting. I had scampi on pasta with artichokes and diced tomatoes in a white sauce. A full, sautéed garlic bulb sat in the center of it upon delivery. The sauce was superb!!! My wife had baked salmon in parchment with rice and a vegetable mix (zucchini, carrots, bell peppers). She also raved about her dish. If we lived nearby, we’d become regulars. The prices were reasonable and both the fare and service were excellent. The owner is apparently from at least near Paris.

Charming, quiet and great food. We go for lunch or dinner whenever we stay in Carmel. It's hard to find all three qualities in one restaurant.

Excellent dinner. Local halibut, the best short ribs I have ever had and Osso bucco. The place is charming and the service was top notch. For the quality of the food and service it was reasonably priced and a really special night.

I travel to Europe a few times each year, and when in Paris I seek out restaurants that specialize in French Onion Soup. Well, it's been many years since I found a soup in Paris as good as the one served here in Carmel. The Apple Tarts also rival some well known places in the City of Light, too! Add to that a warm, informal, and traditional ambience, and you have one of my favorite places to eat in California.

A five star experience in every way- our second visit and it actually surpassed our previous visit. The Parchment Salmon and Cocquille St. Jocque - excuse the spelling- were both delicious. Our friends were equally impressed- well worth a visit!! The staff is first class!!

This is one of my top three favorite restaurants in Carmel! It has a lovely ambience - cozy and charming, like your grandmother's living room. The service is consistently excellent and the food is always delicious; my favorite is their roasted chicken and spinach salad, and my husband loves their rack of lamb, but couldn't resist the tender salmon in parchment this time. We were happy to introduce another (local) couple to PB - they loved it! It's perfectly located, next to Carmel Plaza and walking distance to everywhere, including Sunset Center. It's open from 11:30 to 9:00 (except Mon and Tue, when they close at 4:30), so it's easy to drop in any time. P.S. Their baked goods are amazing! I love to take a pastry to go for the next morning!

We both loved the ambience of this intimate restaurant. I had the beef Bourgogne and my husband had the shepherds pie. Both of us enjoyed our meals very much. I would come back again if I’m in the area. I found the prices to be very affordable also.

What a SUPER find in Carmel. Small, intimate French restaurant. Fire burning in the fireplace to take the chill out of the air, waiter with an accent and incredible food. The french onion soup is a MUST have, although a friend who opted for the mushroom soup was not disappointed. So happy we stumbled on this place!

This is an excellent French restaurant. Four of us had lunch. The service was excellent. They do not have outside searing but they arranged a table next to an open window. The onion soup was excellent as was their chicken pot pie. As is typical of Carmel the food was spendy.
