Surprised at noise level and location in Carmel. Nice wait staff but location does not provide true essence of Carmel

We stayed at Carmel Mission Inn and realized they had a beautiful restaurant. We ate breakfast and it was so delicious. One of the best overnight oats I had and we also shared coaster breakfast. It was amazing! Highly recommend if staying at carmel mission inn or even if not staying!

Our waitress Sherbelle was the sweetest, bubbly, happy and informative soul. Food exceeded expectations. We had white wine, crab cakes, artichoke dip, honey rolls (to die for) with the honey butter, local from Carmel. We had the ahi tuna and salad Cesar, as well as the chocolate desert. No complains, loved it all. Loved the price and location, ambiance and set up is creative and modern. Will be coming back!

Mostly, our food was good, but three of us ordered the special, yellow tail fish. Absolutely awful! Very fishy taste…didn’t taste fresh and was over-cooked. All three people were disappointed.
