Nepenthe Restaurant ****
and Café Kevah



Cuisine: American

Description & Atmosphere
Our two favorite things about Nepenthe Restaurant are its awesome views of Big Sur's coastline (photo below) and its famous Ambrosia Burger — a ground steak sandwich, served on a French roll with Nepenthe's famous Ambrosia Sauce. You can't beat this place on a warm sunny day. Even when it's foggy and you can't see the views, it's still worth a stop for lunch.

Nepenthe offers a wide variety of food including Fresh Salads, Sandwiches, Hamburgers, Niman Ranch Steaks, Chicken dishes, Quiche and Grilled Fresh Fish.

Sip on one of Nepenthe's Specialty Drinks as you enjoy the spectacular views and people-watching at this fun Big Sur
hang-out. And keep a sharp lookout for all the birds — they love the food too!
