We've eaten here many times during our visits to Carmel. The food, service and hosts have always been consistently excellent. Anna has served us several times - very professional attentive service. Everyone works hard here and it shows. We eat here for dinner and breakfast. It's unusual for a restaurant to have as good a score for breakfast as dinner... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here. The Beet salad was so good and fresh and I loved the wine menu. The sommelier was really fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Nice ambience and very enjoyable.

La Bicyclette is a locals favorite for breakfast with perfect cappuccino, homemade granola or wood oven eggs. It's also perfect for lunch or a casual dinner with great pizzas and bistro style food. Enjoy local wines too!

This is a quaint restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea. We had a very nice meal that included soup du jour as an appetizer; the soup was hot and savory and very satisfactory. I had the cod as a main course and my daughter ordered the truffle gnocchi. We enjoyed both dishes but they were not particularly outstanding. Also, I found it a... More

I called 11 days before our visit to reserve a table. When we arrived for our reservation, my name was not in the book. They don't give confirmations so the only evidence I had was the email I'd sent myself as a reminder. They did seat us but there were no apologies and no recognition that it was a mistake... More

My wife and I walked in when they opened and while we didn't have reservations they were able to seat us. I would however suggest making reservations because I believe they reserve a slightly better room for those with reservations. In any case we had the carbonara pizza which was topped with a "60-minute" egg which is an egg cooked... More

Have eaten here many times and always look forward to lunch or dinner. Good food and very nice wait staff. Good wine list. The only negative aspect this time was we were really rushed to eat and move on so the table could be turned. Our reservations were for 7:15 and by 8:30 they were asking us if we could... More

La Bicyclette is an adorable European bistro with lots of charm in downtown Carmel. The staff is very friendly & efficient, the decor quaint, and the food....oh, the food is amazing. I very much enjoyed the pumpkin soup, which was perfect for a starter or light meal. My husband had a perfectly done steak that was well plated with vegetables,... More

2nd visit. First very good, this was excellent. Despite being a busy night, staff and service were friendly, helpful and professional. Great atmosphere. The food could not have been better; a superb blackened cod, a perfectly done squash pizza, a unique tuna and caviar and the largest pot au chocolat I have ever seen. Will be making the 3rd trip...

Called the night before and were told that the earliest table was 9pm 😢. Happened to be in Carmel next evening and got to restaurant at 5pm no reservation. Got a table and so happy we did because within 20min the place was full and they were turning people away without reservation. Food was excellent. Starters - i had mushroom... More
