Dining

Fun requires fuel, and the cuisine from our award-winning culinary team comprised of a merry band of cooks, pastry chefs, and artisans provides plenty of it. (There’s also plenty of room to spread out, thanks to our new Valley Kitchen seating arrangement; we’ve got outdoor dining and picnic areas, too.)

Our hand-crafted, homegrown approach to food means we try to use ingredients grown on our own land, because if you want something done right, you do it yourself, right? It’s no wonder that our Valley Kitchen is known as one of Carmel Valley’s best restaurants. We swear, even the Brussels sprouts taste better here!
