We came for the first time one year ago for our honeymoon and it was a great experience. Now we’re back for our one year anniversary and its just as great as the last time! I would highly recommend this Restaurant. Great food and very nice staff.” – Customer Review

I like to review a restaurant on the feeling I get on the total value of the meal. In other words, did it meet my expectations for what I spent? Carmel Bistro certainly fits the bill when it comes to service, quality and value. My wife still raves about the pasta with clams she ordered. We live only twenty minutes away from Carmel Village and will definitely return to Carmel Bistro.” – Customer Review

Carmel-by-the-Sea, often called simply Carmel, is a small city in Monterey County, California, founded in 1902 and incorporated in 1916. Carmel is situated on the Monterey Peninsula - known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history. In 1906, the San Francisco Call devoted a full page to the "artists, poets and writers of Carmel-by-the-Sea", and in 1910 it reported that 60 percent of Carmel's houses were built by citizens who were "devoting their lives to work connected to the aesthetic arts."

Carmel is known for being dog-friendly, with numerous hotels, restaurants and retail establishments admitting guests with dogs. Our three Carmel restaurants have outdoor patios for local Carmel residents and travelers alike ... those who like to bring their dog along.
