This is a good location for food before an event at Sunset center, but their wine pricing is ridiculous. It is a mediocre selection priced 50 % too high. The food is ok but nothing special.

I had their black cod, amazing!!!! The onion soup, out of this world. My wife had the seasonal salad and said it ranks up on the top of the best of the salads she has had. The service was 5 star, so personable. Ask to eat inside the little house, inside the restaurant. We will be back again!

My wife and I went to dinner at this corner restaurant in Carmel California. I had high expectations from the reviews on trip advisor. They were completely dashed by this meal. I ordered pumpkin risotto that was the worst risotto dish I have ever tasted. To be fair, my wife enjoyed her repast but I could not get by the... More

We stopped in here for lunch, right before they were closing for the afternoon. The server was fun and eager to help. Their breads are homemade. We had a nice salad and wine. If you are looking for something different than American or Italian fare, give it a try.

This restaurant had one of the highest TA ratings in Carmel and we went there for dinner with friends expecting a lot. It didn't work out at all for us. First, we were a party of 8 and this was a small restaurant. The table size and placement was awkward and uncomfortable. The waiter that was assigned to us had... More

We enjoyed pumpkin risotto, stuffed mushrooms and fresh baked bread. The flavors were delicious, the service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I would definitely head back to try other things on the menu.

La Bicyclette is a popular place and we had to wait to get a table but it was totally worth it. The service was excellent, the beers were delicious and the food was outstanding. Definitely the best burger and pizza I have had in the USA. The tuna salad was also delicious and I would recommend the duck. It has... More

Poor seating (tiny table by the open door) but the server was so upbeat, friendly and cheerful it was easy to overlook. Rack of lamb is a best bet, lots of food. The Crab Ravioli was wonderful but skimpy. Also an expensive experience. Really, bread should be served without needing to order, it's french! But altogether we would go back... More

Trip Advisor rarely steers us wrong. In Carmel we had already had excellent meals at The Treehouse Cafe (currently rated #4 in town) and The Flying Fish Grill (currently rated #3). La Bicyclette was close to where we were staying (and rated #7) so we were hoping for another winner. We were disappointed! First of all, the server was very... More

We got a table immediately, even though they were very crowded, and we're seated in the little "house" indoors. Lunch was excellent; they were able to accommodate my food allergy and the service was good. Our server was friendly and efficient.
