Great Burger, soft bun and delicious meat. Not really big enough to share though. Small tables, ok service.

Anticipated a long wait, but managed to get squeezed in near the back of the restaurant. Quite a bit of traffic, but the food was great and worth it. Selection of breads were tasty and along with the Beet salad and subsequent pizzas made for a great casual dining experience.

This tiny little restaurant in downtown Carmel boasts the same unique vibe the the owners other local restaurant do...quaint, welcoming, casual with high quality, fresh and creative menus item which are almost entirely cooked in a huge pizza oven that sits in the middle of the restaurant. Great food but high prices to go with.

Lots of locals here ~ a line waiting early in the morning during the Winter of locals waiting for their "favorite" breakfast place. I had the french toast (the best I ever had) and my husband had an omelette. The quality of ingredients and presentation couldn't have been better. We will absolutely return.

Excellent restaurant. A little cramped but great ambiance, staff, and food. A must eat place. The menu is limited in selection as it is French style. We were four people and everyone ate something different and everything was very good. Service is very nice and quick.

Some of what you find in Carmel is phony cute, phony cozy, or phony in other ways. Not so here. The welcome is real, the atmosphere warm and the food excellent. For a French joint, the pizza is really, really good. My two chief pizza tasters (and this pizza maker) agreed on that point. Other main dishes were also top... More

Very nice small French restaurant. Small menu. We had pizza and vegetarian lasagne. Supertasty! Unfortunately no wine for us due to driving.

We wanted a nice pizza and red wine dinner in our hotel so we ordered take out. It was tasty, nothing spectacular but solid, but SMALL. We thought the pizzas would last us two meals, but alas they are good for one meal (if you're really hungry from hiking all day! :D). The seasonal salad w/roasted beets was also fresh,... More
