There are few food adventures like this one. The food is excellent, prices quite reasonable, interesting wine list...just plan on making it an evening. Reservation a must. A true chef-led dining experience.

Yes, it is out in the middle of Carmel Valley, up a very winding road, much of it into the sun because of the time of day. Give yourself plenty of time. But it is a beautiful drive. The place looks like an ice house...More
