Advice for my Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur recommendations list (long)

Melissa Garland | Jun 4, 2001 03:56 PM

Hello hounds,
I've been doing some research on the Chowhound boards on this region for an upcoming trip in August (I want to be prepared in advance!) There was a great discussion on the Monterey area back in 1999, but after reading a recent post I became worried that some of the information has become outdated: ie. Sans Souci (Lincoln Court) has new management and has gone downhill. I'm posting my list of places that received favorable reviews on Chowhound here (no sense mentioning places that didn't). Please let me know if you have any advice as to what to add or delete from my list as it may be out of date.

Tarpy's Roadhouse (this was recommended by quite a few people)
Trattoria Paradiso
Adobe Inn
Whaling Station Inn

Carmel and vicinity:
Pacific's Edge
The Grill (Ocean Ave.)
Robert's Bistro
Café Nipoli
Porta Bella
Village Corner Bistro
The General Store

Pacific Grove:
Old Bath House

Big Sur Area:
Rocky Point
Hitching Post
Far Western Tavern
