It has been a lovely setting for decades -- a special occasion kind of place-- , but this time we came on their last night before a major remodel. Perhaps the impending closure (indeed, the next morning workers had started to tear the place apart) caused the kitchen and service to be "off", which at their prices should not be... More

We love it here. The waiters are very good. Food is always excellent. It's just really a special restaurant. There is a beautiful courtyard view.

We had a wonderful lunch here - mushroom soup was to die for, along with the citrus and seafood salad. Very special

Old style (well perhaps 70s up market Italian), quiet with excellent service and equally excellent food. 4 different main courses each equally good and good wine advice. Also we took a bottle of our own as well and were not charged corkage. Sit at a window to look out over the courtyard with a pond and fountain.

This was our first time at Anton & Michel. We enjoyed it very much. The restaurant looks out on the fountains and patio courtyard. We were seated at a table directly in front of the window, but it looked like the restaurant was designed to have mostly all good views of the beautiful courtyard. Our waiter was pleasant and not...

We were here in December and had an early reservation with OpenTable. The place was nearly deserted but did start to fill up as we were getting ready to leave. The house specialty rack of lamb was truly delicious, but my partner's meal was rather forgettable. The service was attentive, although it could perhaps have been a little more personal,... More

A perfect place to celebrate my husbands birthday. We went for all of the table side presentations. The Caesar salad, rack of lamb and cherries jubilee. What fun! Can't get service like this anywhere else. Beautiful patio and pool to look out at. Don't miss it for those special occasions!

Judging by the other reviews and our recent experience, dining at Anton & Michel's is very hit or miss. It shouldn't be at these prices (the wine list especially so at three times retail, and the corkage $25), Our experience in a nutshell: very good Rack of Lamb and incompetent service. The restaurant was almost empty, but three of the... More

The only restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea w/ a view (Court of the Fountains) and consistent fine dining, period. Brothers Bert and Mark Simpson, respectivly maitre d' and chef, have been w/ owner Tony Salameh for many years because all three understand what a fine dining restaurant experience should be. And where do you find table side preperation these days? We travel... More

Anton and Michel is the ideal choice for a romantic dinner or for that special celebration. The dining room is very attractive with windows facing a courtyard. The food is Continental and everything is outstanding. At our recent dinner we had the rack of lamb and the duck- both of which were perfect. Beyond the food Anton and Michel has... More
