Such a disappointment

You are greeted well when you get to the restaurant and then shown to a nice table which overlooked the inner courtyard with pool. At this stage our expectations were high. Sadly everything was downhill from this point. We were given menus and the waiter then flew past saying he would be back... read more

Good food, not great. Ordered off regular menu. Barramundi was WAY too salty - server described it as salty but good. So, obviously they know it's s bit over the top. It's described as being served with sautéed chard; there wasn't a lot. Lovely service. And we enjoyed our table beside the glass window that overlooks the pool. Not likely... More

Back in Carmel for the AT&T Pro-Am and of course wouldn't miss fining at our favorite restaurant; we were there last night (Valentines Day) and the restaurant was packed. Luckily we made our reservations a month ago and we were seated at a lovely table and our waitress, Carmela, was most delightful. Everything was simply "Perfect"! They really know how... More

If you're looking for the best restaurant in Carmel, look no further than Anton & Michel. Carmel is filled with excellent restaurants, but this one is a step above the rest. Excellent food, friendly, well trained staff and a beautiful setting make this restaurant hard to beat. Also, a great lunch around the pool is a treat.

Been coming here for 20 years and their redo on the inside and patio has updated the venue to be a great treat in Carmel. You can still have the salad and desert prepared at table side -- just like the continental resturants of old but the mains have been updated to the NEW Calif style. If you really want... More

My husband and I spent New Year's Eve in Carmel and decided to go back to an all time favorite, Anton & Michel. Our overall experience was outstanding. The food was great, the wine list extensive, complete and reasonably priced, and the service was second to none. My husband had the Rack of Lamb and I had the Lemon-Pepper Seared... More

The restaurant is old school gracious with excellent service and traditional continental food that is done correctly. My husband had a really outstanding duck with a dried cherry sauce and I had a fork tender kobe short rib. The only mis-step in my estimation is that my short ribs were served with a pasta rather than a french lentil or... More

We were there to celebrate a wedding, so there were about 30 of us. The staff was very attentive to our large group and it was very well handled. The food was superb! I had a filet mignon (perfectly cooked), my husband had barramundi (a fish) that he thought was excellent. This is a small restaurant overlooking a nice reflection... More

We stopped for lunch on a whim. Best decision! The wait staff was friendly and professional, the restaurant was beautiful with a great view of a garden area overflowing with flowers and a fountain and the food was DELISH! The food was well presented and very flavorful. The soup was outstanding! Even the salad was different and well flavored. Well... More

We had a lovely table side prepared dinner for two. This is there best dish and presentation if you really want to be treated like royalty. Quite a show and worth the price.
