Restaurants in Carmel, Monterey

Can anyone give me some ideas on great restaurants in the Carmel area?

  1. I really like Passionfish in Pacific Grove, they don't mark up their wine. DaGiovanni's in Carmel is very good, I had a birthday dinner there a month ago. Also, Carmel Chop House is good for steak. A friend of mine loves Bouchee but I have not been. Sardine Factory in Monterey is reputedly wonderful, but again, I haven't been. They are noted for their abalone dishes. For breakfast, I like the Cottage or Katie's.

    1. Super nice, somewhat nice, quick bites?!

      What are you looking for?

      Also, you will get better recs on the SF bay area thread, although a lot of Angelenos have good recs too.

        The Monterey Bay area is covered on this board. The moderators will delete/move any posts to the SF board.

      2. If you want really fancy

        Restaurant L'Auberge, and, Bouchée Restaurant & Wine Bar

        They are expensive, but when you go to places like Carmel, you splurge right?!

        1. I love Casanova in Carmel..... Also Fresh Cream in Monterey near the wharf
