Discover Carmel

A rising star along the California coast, Carmel-by-the-Sea is quickly making a name for itself on the dining scene. There's a European feel to Carmel, and that ambiance is reflected in the city's large number of French-influenced restaurants. As you nibble French bread and sip a glass of wine, it will be easy to imagine that you've been transported to a genuine Parisian bistro. Fresh seafood is plentiful in Carmel - no surprise given its coastal location. You'll find seafood dishes in Carmel's restaurants that range from European to Mexican in cuisine. You'll also have no trouble finding great seafood in Carmel's All-American steakhouses. The Californian commitment to healthy eating means that dishes lean heavily on produce, and vegetarian options abound in the local restaurants. Even vegans will find dishes to suit their tastes.
