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.

We had a seasonal salad which was lightly dressed and yummy except I expected more than mainly lettuce and pomegranate seeds. We had a pizza--the crust on the bottom was thin and crunchy, which is great, except the ingredients were sparse except for the cheese, which made for a boring eat. The apple tart was OK. Overall, it did not... More

French/Italian bistro that offered some nice options. We had an artichoke starter that was great, and two of their pizzas. Hit the spot.

Need to make a reservation because it gets pretty busy. Very nice atmosphere. The restaurant has some private eating areas.

We were blown away by this place and ended up having breakfast there every morning as well a a lunch and would have done dinner if we had found it earlier in our trip. Amazing dishes all cooked in a wood oven. We ate something different every time we went and honestly couldn't say one was better than the other.... More

We had the nicest lunch here. Authentic bistro fare and a great wine list, the service is friendly and attentive. Very unassuming restaurant, we were comfortable in our hiking attire from Point Lobos. Special of the day was amazing!

I think this place offers a lovely selection of fresh food at reasonable prices. The pizza is terrific as are the fish dishes. Some starters are large and others petite so you may want to ask. Service is cordial. The restaurant is often packed so make a reservation- an older crowd means that there's better luck finding a table at... More

We had both lunch and dinner here in the space of 3 days . both meals were excellent. We particularly liked the short menu, the comprehensive list of wines from Europe and the friendly service. well worth a visit !

My husband and I recently ate dinner here. My husband had been previously years ago and was excited to see what had changed. I had the mushroom truffle pizza that was so wonderful I am going to dream about it. The restaurant is quaint and a little quirky. The staff were wonderful and the food was fantastic. Great date night... More
