Mediterranean Restaurant

“Come with a group for a fun, lively music filled evening! Right on Ocean Avenue, it always has a wait list to get in. It’s as much about the food as it is the atmosphere and the warm welcoming staff!”

Golf Course
“Another place that speaks for itself. Go to the first tee and see the names engraved history. Go to 18th hole for amazing views. Stop to see the Loan Cypress tree and take a pic, though that spot has gotten pretty busy lately with tourists, so go early. ”

Italian Restaurant

“Located in an historic cottage once owned by Charlie Chaplin's private chef, Casanova's rustic French and Italian cooking features deliciously simple dishes, ranging from the likes of hearty cannelloni to a peak-season grilled peach topped with pickled onion, toasted almonds and torn basil. Before opening in 1987, the family remodeled the building after their Belgian farmhouse and even dug down to replicate their wine cellar, which today houses a notable collection. A private room invites 2-8 people to enjoy the chef’s prix-fixe on Vincent Van Gogh’s very own dining table. ”

“The food is on par with the view, as it overlooks the 18th hole at the Pebble Beach Golf Course. Located downstairs in The Lodge, it has fire pit tables compete with blankets. Everyone will find something they love here, from vegans to steak lovers. Be sure to order the bread ballon! ”

“Carmel is known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history. The town is known for being dog-friendly, with numerous hotels, restaurants and retail establishments admitting guests with dogs. Carmel is also known for several unusual laws, including a prohibition on wearing high-heel shoes without a permit, enacted to prevent lawsuits arising from tripping accidents caused by irregular pavement.”

Italian Restaurant

“Enjoy a brief trip to Italy with Italian country cooking and warm hospitality as you remember it. Come and experience the culture, cuisine and lively traditions at Pèpe's Little Napoli, Bistro Italiano. Rich Pèpe opened Little Napoli in 1990 and it has been considered the icon Italian restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula ever since. Antipasti, Pizza, Pasta and Risotto are prepared perfectly with the handed down Pèpe family signature recipes. Viva Little Napoli–Little Napoli is lively as a festa, packing more Italian charm into its cozy quarters than most big city restaurants. Chianti is served by the glass and olive oil is poured into saucers printed with sensible advise such as "non parlare, baciami" (don't talk, kiss me). All the talking and kissing stops quickly when the generous plates of food arrive at the table.
