IT DOESN'T GET ANY MORE LOCAL THAN THIS

The Luxury of Simplicity

Introducing Valley Kitchen, a fun, vibrant restaurant that embodies the unique values and spirit of the Carmel Valley Ranch experience. Valley Kitchen draws inspiration from the resort's most distinguishing features, from its natural surroundings to the local gardens, orchards, pristine oceans
and neighboring vineyards.

As the resort's social hub and heart, Valley Kitchen, designed by Rodrigo Vargas Design, offers a casually elegant, home-inspired dining experience where the rustic sophistication of Carmel Valley converges with more outdoor connectivity and touches of play.
