Went to Mundaka at the suggestion of the concierge at Carmel Valley Ranch on a Tuesday night. Easy to find, had a reservation, but didn't need it. Four of us, three of whom are NY food snobs. Very good ... Had five dishes, the Chuleton - 22oz bone in rib eye, Calabacin - julienned summer squash, Flores - deep fried squash blossoms, Padron - peppers with sea salt and a pulled pork mini burger. Service was excellent. The rib eye was very rare but tasty, the Padron the highlight, the pulled pork a touch on the sweet side. Lots more on the menu, but the five dishes were sufficient for the four of us. Dessert, sadly, did not live up to the same standard as dinner. Overall, lives up to the reviews.
