No really, come for the pizza. I had a lamb pizza that was to die for. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to chat with us non-locals. I also had a breve cappuccino, and as a former barista, I can say it was perfection. It's not a very large restaurant, but it'll make you feel like you are fine... More

Was in Carmel celebrating our wedding anniversary and read about this restaurant. We were able to walk in and be seated right away. Has a very nice wine list, and we enjoyed the cheese plate and a pizza. Food was so good we ended up coming back again the next day!

Great interesting menu and excellent service. The daily special was mussels with Pom frites. I had the autumnal salad with jicama, pomegranate, interesting cheese and several different greens. The decorations are quirky--see the photo of the smokers leading the Tour de France.

This is a good location for food before an event at Sunset center, but their wine pricing is ridiculous. It is a mediocre selection priced 50 % too high. The food is ok but nothing special.

I had their black cod, amazing!!!! The onion soup, out of this world. My wife had the seasonal salad and said it ranks up on the top of the best of the salads she has had. The service was 5 star, so personable. Ask to eat inside the little house, inside the restaurant. We will be back again!

My wife and I went to dinner at this corner restaurant in Carmel California. I had high expectations from the reviews on trip advisor. They were completely dashed by this meal. I ordered pumpkin risotto that was the worst risotto dish I have ever tasted. To be fair, my wife enjoyed her repast but I could not get by the... More

We stopped in here for lunch, right before they were closing for the afternoon. The server was fun and eager to help. Their breads are homemade. We had a nice salad and wine. If you are looking for something different than American or Italian fare, give it a try.

This restaurant had one of the highest TA ratings in Carmel and we went there for dinner with friends expecting a lot. It didn't work out at all for us. First, we were a party of 8 and this was a small restaurant. The table size and placement was awkward and uncomfortable. The waiter that was assigned to us had... More

We enjoyed pumpkin risotto, stuffed mushrooms and fresh baked bread. The flavors were delicious, the service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I would definitely head back to try other things on the menu.

La Bicyclette is a popular place and we had to wait to get a table but it was totally worth it. The service was excellent, the beers were delicious and the food was outstanding. Definitely the best burger and pizza I have had in the USA. The tuna salad was also delicious and I would recommend the duck. It has... More
