If you're in the mood for some decadent cliffside dining, head to Nepenthe Restaurant, request a terrace seat and order the Ambrosia Burger and chocolate cake for dessert.

Wonderful long-time Big Sur establishment. Nepenthe Restaurant has good food, incredible views, and very relaxed atmosphere. The Phoenix Shop is full of interesting items from Big Sur and all over the world - books, jewelry, clothing, home items, body care, etc., etc.. A must stop in Big Sur.

A touristy Big Sur scenic restaurant with cliffside dining. The view is no joke, but then again if you're driving Big Sur you're probably used to it. This place is visited enough that if you just stop in without getting a table you won't be a total weirdo. I pulled it off.
