Fine Dining in Carmel-by-the-Sea

With the bountiful treasures of the Salinas Valley and the Pacific Ocean at its doorstep, Carmel’s fine dining food scene is world-class. Our very own Hyatt Residence Club Carmel, Highlands Inn boasts award-winning cuisine at the Pacific’s Edge with stunning ocean views. Here, and throughout the Monterey Coast, chefs use fresh seafood and produce to create memorable dishes that pair nicely with local Carmel Valley wines.

From international to regional and local cuisine, there’s no shortage of phenomenal options to savor, like Anton & Michel, a French-inspired restaurant where tableside service helps create a personalized experience. Their signature tableside Caesar salad whets the appetite for what’s to come, including rack of lamb carved right at your table. Exuding luxury and class, the restaurant affords diners with an elegant setting to match, with large glass windows overlooking a small fountain and pool.

Dine by candlelight at La Balena, an Italian restaurant with an intimate feel, perfect for a romantic night out for two. Or venture to Grasing’s, where their delectable cocktails pair splendidly with fresh seafood and American fare in the comfort of an old-world style building.

Mouthwatering Asian-inspired cuisine can be relished at the Flying Fish Grill, while L’escargot offers exquisite French and European dishes and an unforgettable fine dining experience.

A modern, American steakhouse, Seventh & Dolores serves expertly prepared beef with comfort sides to match. And Aubergine at L’Auberge Carmel provides an extravagant experience with a cozy setting and memorable New American fare.
