I thought the on-line menu looked expensive and pretentious, but the mother of the groom (my sister) suggested Michelle's and it was her party. Boy, was I wrong! My husband and I arrived first and the chef/owner seemed delighted that I didn't know if our party would be 4 or 12 (it turned out to be 19). We were given... More

One of the best restrauants we have eaten in. The Paella and the mussels were outstanding. The salad we had included goat cheese and nectarines which gave it a delicious taste. This is a family owned restruartant which we found by accident. The service could not have been any better and when you see them smiling all the time working... More

My husband and I spent the weekend in Portsmouth. We are from new England, so we know good seafood. This restaurant not only had the best seafood we have ever had, it was also the most entertaining....being able to watch the cooks prepare the meals/creations and to be waited on by the executive chef/owner was priceless! 5Star in our book!...

We discovered this little gem quite by accident one Saturday morn' before Fathers Day. The brunch menu provided tantalizing choice for me as well as tasty choice for my spouse. He love Monte Cristo - the slabs of meat were generous. I had Berry crepes. Love the presentation. We have returned many times .... You will not be disappointed.

My girlfriends and I visited Portsmouth earlier this month for a girls getaway weekend. On our last morning, we were just going to head home but I recalled seeing Michelle's the previous day and that they served brunch. And one of my friend's name is Michelle so we HAD to go! We were outside taking pics of Michelle in front... More

Went for brunch. A very good selection on the menu. Well executed food. Service is very efficient. This place is a favorite of the locals for Sunday Brunch. I highly suggest trying to get a reservation. You'll need it.

My husband and I were looking for a place for lunch on the 4th of July and happened to some across this restaurant. We were seated pretty quickly and everyone was very friendly. We had a tough time choosing off the menu and ended up ordering the seafood crapes, shrimp and grits, berry crapes and French toast. Yes we were... More

Michelle was very friendly and a great host. Menu was as expected for European bistro with substantial portions. I had a large stuffed pork chop with mushroom sauce and new potatoes which was quite tasty. My wife had the seafood provencal with shrimp, mussels and scallops. Both were generous and tasty. The peach/raspberry tart for dessert was a bit bland... More
