Recommendation for food in Carmel

I know this is a bit out of the Bay Area boundaries but I figured a lot of people from the Bay Area travel to Carmel for a getaway and might have a recommendation on a good restaurant in Carmel (the main downtown area (Carmel-By-The-Sea). By "good"...I mean good food and good ambiance. Trying to find some places to eat when we head down there. It could be a good place to have dinner, grab a sandwich or even breakfast. Open to all suggestions.

  1. Prior to the relocation of this post to the California Board may I suggest Cantinetta Luca.'

    1. Second Cantinetta Luca. In addition, Casanova and Demetra Cafe (a really fun place).

        1. Mundaka - charming courtyard setting, fresh and creative tapas, great sangria.

            I posted this in the other thread:

            I like Cantinetta Luca, Mundaka, La Bicyclette, Basil, Casanova. Carmel Belle is good for sandwiches/charcuterie/salads. I also like Pastries and Petals as a sandwich/salad place (it's a bit farther from the main Ocean Ave area). For fine dining, I like Aubergine.
