A definite must if in the area. The food and service are very good. In 2 we had 1 starter and the clay pot (a definite must just for the experience) 1 dessert, 1 water and a bottle of wine (about 150 USD).

I had the almond crusted seabass and it was delicious. We shared a dessert as the main course was a decent size. The manager (possibly the owner) checked everything was ok as well as our server. Good service.

I find every year at this quaint restaurant in Carmel plaza. It is below ground with wooden booths. It is a quiet place. Fish is always excellent. Service is warm. I like the cod.

All of Carmel is super pet friendly but I don't think Flying Grill is. I could be wrong but the restaurant is pretty small and all enclosed.
