    Last real place to eat before Big Sur. Seemed quieter than normal but assume that's due to bridge out further down the road. Food was great. Lovely location. River runs just behind and lots of people playing in it. Made for a nice afternoon stop.

    We only stayed there for lunch since it was the only place in that region. Truly remote - and given this - truly expensive. It's also a hotel, but didn't look very inviting. Environment/forest however is beautiful.
