“Firok serves some of the best food on the Peninsula and the service is always impeccable!” -Sharon Matthams

“Carmel’s Bistro Giovanni serves moderately priced Italian and Mediterranean plates in an inviting, European atmosphere. Guests can dine on the dog-friendly patio or inside, surrounded by candlelit murals of the Mediterranean. Hospitality is warm and attentive, with feel-good details such as complimentary dessert wine. Order the tiramisu with house-made whipped mascarpone.”  Aurelia R. Paquette, micro-influencer
