I can't believe this restaurant was recommended with an 8.8 rating. I can only guess that the kitchen staff has changed. We were there on a weekend over labor day weekend, and spent $100 (for two people) on one of the worst meals I've eaten at a restaurant, certainly at one charging those prices.
an average piece of chicken with fat and gristle on it, drowned in a buttery pesto sauce, served with a rice-a-roni side dish, an undercooked broccoli stalk, and cooked carrots. the shrimp dish was just as bad. overcooked shrimp with the same lame side dishes. and each entree cost around $25. I'm not usually picky about my meals, but I still can't believe I spent $100 on food that bad.
The views are great. The restaurant setting is casual. Our waitress was nice, but flighty. and there were a few flies around.
But avoid this restaurant absolutely because of the food. All restaurants in Big Sur are expensive, but most of the others I've been to serve you gourmet meals.
Pros: Great views.
Cons: Bad food at outrageous prices.
