We stayed at the Lucia Lodge for a night and had dinner and breakfast there. Both were very good for such a remote location.

You will have to come up from the south to visit Lucia as there are road closures for a few more weeks. But this is definitely a wonderful visit with comfortable rooms, good lunch or tea and stunning views.

Came to Lucia Lodge by chance and were so glad we did. The food was really good cafe level food and the service was very personable. Even better was the stunning view. All in all, a magical little moment on our trip to Monterey.

I had the fish and chips. Not sure how this was rated in the top 10 in the US. Small fillets in batter for $24. My husband had the turkey Reuben and was very happy. Stop for a glass of wine and enjoy the view!
