We had a great dinner at an outside table. Server was nice, food was amazing! Beautiful setting right in Carmel Village. Lots of beer and wine options. Make sure you make reservations especially on the weekend as it fills up fast.

We were staying just down the road and fancied a pizza. This Resturant is busy and was packed when we arrived. The pizza was excellent. Efficient friendly service. Great menu and super deserts! Would return to eat all the time if we lived local.
