Wonderful place to take friends or business

I typically bring clients here for lunch. The pool courtyard is like somewhere in Europe and the inside decor since the remodel is warm. You can't beat sitting in the yard on a nice day. I have good meals here . The menu has good choices and probably the best fish specials . They even have sunset 3... read more

We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant so chose it for an evening out with friends. All 4 of our meals were barely touched, the pork tenderloin was WAY overcooked and dry, the lamb was okay, but not great and also overcooked, the fish special was dry and again, OVERCOOKED and the chicken was just boring and not...

Visited this restaurant during the Carmel Food & Wine Tour and was impressed with the relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. Went back for lunch the next day and the food was great and the wait staff attentive. Enjoyed!

I seldom write bad reviews, for I want others to enjoys places I do. Anton & Michel serves one of the finest meals in Carmel, but when one waiter goes out of his way to ruin this experience the restaurant should be called on it. I have been going to Anton & Michel over a 20-25 year period and have... More

This classic Carmel Restaurant has a very unique atmosphere. Outside the windows is the exquisite Court of Fountains. Outdoor seating available. Classic French presentations available. Be sure to ask for a table by the windows. The back tables have no view.

There were seven of us for dinner recently and all our expectations were surpassed. The restaurant overlooks gardens and water which is lovely in the middle of busy Carmel. The wine list is extensive and the food is excellent. The service was also outstanding. We will be back next year!

Fourth of five dinners in Carmel, the worst ever. Food quality very bad, no concept of what fresh food is and freshly cooked means. Appetizer: grilled artichoke, no flavor at all, definitely not from the locally produced, or very old, seating on a stale and brown on edges lettuce. Complained about the lettuces being old, no apologies. Prime New York... More

We wanted a special place that was romantic for our anniversary. This was it. décor and window table looking over the fountain courtyard was lovely. Easy to walk to from most hotels nearby. The food and service was excellent. My only comment was there was not enough time between each plate. It wasn't rushed but could have been a bit... More

Had my last dinner hear while visiting Carmel. Sat quietly outside by the pool and firepit. Was visited several times by either the manager, or owner. Food was amazing and service was also wonderful. I would definitely recommend it!!

We made a last minute booking and we were so glad we did! The welcome at the door made us feel good. The service all night was excellent. Every dish was above expectation and we would't hesitate to go back again. I was also very impressed with the wine list.
