Unexpected pleasure to have the best grilled cheese sandwich ever (with bacon), sitting on an outdoor deck face-to-face with the natural beauty of the California redwoods. Price very reasonable for this rather remote location.

We had a glass of wine on the patio and it was a wonderful experience. The redwoods are majestic. There are mosquitos, so be forewarned.

We popped into the big sur lodge restaurant after a walk up the valley trail. We opted to share a Greek salad and salami pizza. It was amazing! Also we were really well looked after by our super friendly waiter Michael!
