The fish tacos were really good but the rice was not what I expected. Good wine selection. Hotel looks fun, would check into staying there in the future!

Had a wonderful lunch sitting outside! Food and service was very good. Great to also see all of the furry friends that are so well behaved! Would certainly return on my next trip to Carmel!

Love this bar in Doris Days Inn as part owner. The whole place is that era of greatness, polish and refinement. They have food too, that is really great. I had the piso, which is made with an egg white. Very good and different. Sazerac...More
