For special friends and family members we often dine in the lovely and quaint Patisserie Boissiere restaurant not only for its delicious and tasty food, but also for its desserts and exceptional customer service. Last evening was an exception to the norm, after eating some exquisite appetizers (Brie, soup, granny apples with bleu cheese) we decided to skip dinner and order dessert. We told the waiter of our desire and shortly thereafter management came to our table and scolded us for making reservations. He told us that had they known we were only going to eat dessert they wouldn’t had reserved a table for us.

Patisserie Boissiere Restaurant is a real treasure in the heart of downtown Carmel. Every time my husband and I dine there, it’s always a special experience from the romantic setting, soft lighting and music to the extensive french themed menu and delicious desserts… can’t wait to come back!
We had a lovely lunch at Patisserie Boissiere in an attractive slightly formal dining room setting. Very good service, food and desserts. I had the Parchment salmon on julliened vegies with side of rice. My husband had cold tuna sandwich and asked to have it on a sweet baguette instead of their own made croissant. Dessert was chocolate mousse cake, excellent. Very nice experience.

I had lunch at Patisserie Boissiere in late August. The food was very good and the atmosphere was charming. I will come back every time I visit Ocean Avenue.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dinning at the Patisserie Boissiere during our recent stay at Carmel-by-the-Sea. We had one of the best prepared meal ever. The staff was friendly and the service outstanding, as well as we really enjoyed the european atmosphere. Fortunately for us, we discovered the restaurant and it is now one of our favorites and can’t wait to go back. My very best wishes to Magdy and his staff. Thank you.

It had always been our dream to get married in Carmel on the beach. We learned that you are welcome to just pick your spot on the sand to get married and we picked a great one – but of course the reception afterwards is equally important. We visited all the restaurants in Carmel and excitedly picked the Patisserie. Magdy is an extremely gracious host, the food is delicious, and the ambience unmatched. We couldn’t be happier to count the Patisserie in our wedding memories and are extremely satisfied with the service, the food and the loving kindness we received at the Patisserie. The cost for the reception was beyond reasonable. We anticpate having many more fantastic memories in the years to come at the Patisserie!

My wife and I had dinner on Valentine’s Day 2009 and found the staff very helpful and very attentive to our needs. The food was great and very resonably priced. Loved being able to go to the pastry counter to make our selection of these sinful treats. The apple cake was heated and tasted so good with the superior cup of coffee. I am telling everyone I know and all my friends on facebook to to to Patisserie Boissiere on Mission Carmel

Thank you, Magdy and all at the Patisserie Boissiere Restaurant. Our dinner party for 40 was so gracefully put together by your staff. Many of my guests had just flown 3000 miles, arriving just in time for dinner.The food and wines were excellent, the service was meticulous. All this in a cozy setting with fireplace all aglow. It felt more like a private home than a restaurant setting. Just perfect ! ! Thanks also for providing flowers for each table, a detail I had neglected to consider. I look forward to returning to Carmel if only just to sample half the items from your bakery display! !

Patisserie Boissiere is our favorite restaurant in Carmel. The continental style cuisine is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff is welcoming, friendly and attentive. “Old world charm”, including soft music, make it an excellent place to have a conversation with old friends.

My wife and I visited Carmel the first week in June and had the pleasure of dining with you one night.  That experience ranked amongst the best of our trip to San Francisco, Monterey and Carmel.  We enjoyed the ambiance, had very good service from start to finish and the meal was superb. (

My wife and I live in Redlands, So. California. When work and life gets stressful we like to escape to Carmel and particularly look forward to our favorite place to dine – Patisserie Boissiere. The quiet, intimate ambiance and superb food draws us back once or twice a year. The entrees and pastries are wonderful and the service consistently the best. Such quality dining at such reasonable prices is very rare and a real treat. When in town, we’ll do at least two dinners and a couple lunches, and if we’re nearby in the afternoon we’ve occasionally enjoyed a midday dessert. The Shepherds Pie, Scallops Casserole, Leg of Lamb, and the Vegetable entree in the light pastry are our favorites.
