Where is the best place to eat in this small town?
Price not an object. Just looking for best overall experience.
Yeah, more info would be helpful...But, Aubergine in L'Auberge is IMHO the best in the village of Carmel. I have liked Grassing's everytime I've been there. Casanova is solid though we generally go there for lunch as dinner can be crowded and I think the food suffers just a bit.
If you want to venture out a bit Marinus at the Bernardus Lodge has been fantastic (and the best in the area again IMHO) the 5-6 times I've been. I haven't been to Pacific's Edge for quite a while but the view is incredible.

Pacirfic's Edge is incredible! I would also not miss Sierra Mar in Big Sur @ the Post Ranch Inn for a nice high end dining experience. Grasing's, Christoperh's on Lincoln and Anton & Michel are other favorites of ours in Carmel. Enjoy! ;)

we ended up at da giovanni. what a great little place. cute room, great service and awesome food. the greek salad was really unique as everything was finely diced and they had a appetizer of theses mini homemade meatballs in a rich tomato sauce. delicious!
thank you everybody
