We got a corner table on the deck, and it doesn’t get more perfect than that. The Rocky Creek Bridge was in the background of my view of my husband. Our waiter was helpful and jovial. We shared shrimp scampi and baby back ribs. Both...More

Not only is this a quaint little destination with spectacular views but the food is pretty darn good too! Season dependent they may only serve lunch. Definitely take advantage of the views whether you go for lunch or dinner, if it’s available.

A must stop place with fantastic sea views right on the cliffs with nothing else around. The food was fantastic both seafood and meat options. Just look at the views in the pic and you can sit outside or inside with fantastic views.

One of a kind view. But be prepared to spend big to see it - 2 lunch entrees, 2 glasses of wine, tax and tip $99. Sit outside if it's not windy to maximize your view.

Gorgeous view. Wonderful outside tables. Lovely menu. Good service and wine. Crab sliders great. Burrata salad quite nice. Go. See whales. If sunny, feel blessed.

We stopped here for cocktails, and were blown away by the gorgeous view. Cost us $35 (including tip) for a glass of red wine and a bloody mary. Yes, it's pricey, but the view is breathtaking.

Had a quick drink and appetizer st this restaurant on a busy Sunday afternoon after Point Sur Lighthouse visit. You have to go here at least once on your visit to Carmel. Touristy but worth stopping for the views and drinks!
