Mike Caddy – Proprietor

“I wanted to create a restaurant that had something for everyone in a spectacular environment.”

Mike has been in the hospitality business longer than he has not. After fifteen years in the UK hospitality industry followed by a spell in the luxurious Carmel Valley, Mike returned to his native shores.  He had a vision to bring together a unique approach that combined the extraordinary drama of the South Coast of England, exquisite classic cuisine and attention to detail, served in a laid back Californian style.  The result is PEBBLE BEACH!
