Overlooking the Pacific Ocean with breathtaking views of the California coast, the award winning Sierra Mar Restaurant serves world-class cuisine in an awe-inspiring setting. This Big Sur restaurant features an innovative, four course, prix fixe menu, which changes daily. At Sierra Mar Restaurant Executive Chef Craig von Foerster focuses on organic, seasonal and regional offerings, fusing California fare with French and Mediterranean influences.


Chef John Cox is the Executive Chef at Sierra Mar. Chef Cox’s start in July 2012 marked a return to Sierra Mar, where he began his professional career in 2001. He joined us from his position as executive chef at La Bicyclette and Casanova restaurants in nearby Carmel, where he initiated dynamic, daily changing menus focused around locally sourced ingredients. The successful concepts and menus soon earned recognition as some of the finest in Carmel by publications ranging from the San Francisco Chronicle to Food & Wine magazine.

Prior to his time in Carmel, Chef Cox spent time immersing himself in Hawaii’s island cuisine and the bold, spicy flavors of the southwest in New Mexico. He trained at the New England Culinary Institute, where he is still a board member.
