This place has a beautiful dining room, lovely relaxing patio, classy bar. Staff is friendly and attentive. I ordered the seafood sandwich - delicious and served with a simple salad. My husband had the lamb sliders, excellent. Lunch here was delightful. This is probably one of the best lunches in Carmel. We are certain dinner here is excellent too.

Just attended a hospitality Open House at the newly renovated Anton & Michel. They did a wonderful job of updating the appearance and opening up the space. The bar is much more open, with a beautiful Carmel Stone wall and fireplace. As you enter the restaurant, your eyes are drawn straight back to the lovely courtyard and fountain, available for...

Probably one of the most beautiful restaurants. Just had a renovation that was worth every penny. Sit by the courtyard, it's gorgeous. We had the filet and the fricassee. Both were done well, however it was a meal I could get anywhere.

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 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!
