Enjoyed the Brussel sprouts and chef's special of lamb and the best couscous I've ever eaten. Very casual, but very good.

At La Bicyclette we had an amazing meal, great service, and perfect wines. We started with a meat a cheese boards...they had this honey on the cheese board that was delectable! I had the beet salad and a pizza while my husband had the salmon. They were all fabulous. The salmon came in this little steamed paper pocket which actually... More

Prices on TripAdvisor were outdated. Pizzas were $18-21, entrees up to $45. Our meal was okay, nothing spectacular. Service was very good though. Two pizzas, salad no drinks totaled $59.00 plus tip.

We luckily stumbled on this restaurant for lunch while in Carmel. I felt slightly underdressed in my tourist attire as nearly everyone else was fashionable and chic. But hey, it's Carmel. We got to dine in the small dollhouse like structure inside the restaurant which enabled us to talk over the loudness of other diners and enjoy an intimate experience.... More

The restaurant can get busy during lunch hour, and for good reason. It offers well prepared French Bistro cuisine in a cozy setting just a block off Ocean Avenue in the heart of Carmel. The restaurant seats only 49 people, and there was a line to get in at the peak of lunch hour. An interesting but limited menu at... More

We were with a group of people, and it was chaotic, and not the best situation to evaluate a dining experience, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed. The food was okay (lamb chops and chicken dishes) but not fantastic. The service was okay as well, but not particularly friendly. Perhaps under other circumstances, or different dishes... More

Looks are deceiving. The reviews for this place are, too. The service was rude and the "wood-fired" pizza they tout is nothing special. Had better at papa johns. We also overheard one of the waitresses complaining that the patrons don't order enough and that shes bored when it's a slow service.

This place used to be good. The $42 steak came out raw, tough, and luke warm. Unbelievable. The pizzas were greasy but good. The employees acted as if they were possessed. The tables were very uncomfortable. Every time the door opened a gust of cold air came in. Soup and salad were good. They won't see us again. Try Enzo... More
