We celebrated my wife's birthday here this week. We both thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Although it is a bit on the expensive side, the service and the ambiance make it quite special. We had the special mushroom starter with artichoke heart and mushroom soup for starters - both to die for. Main courses included a sea bass and scallops in... More

Was visiting Carmel and had made reservations thru open table for this restaurant. Service was efficient and we were shown our table. Though there was only 3 service staff working that night we were promptly served. The cold tomato soup which my wife had was yummy but the mushroom soup I had was just so-so compared to Joel Palmer house... More

We visited on a Sunday evening and were surprised so few tables were taken. Had read comments about the sommelier's manner and can see how that could upset, but his knowledge is extensive and we were delighted with the (similar priced) wine he recommended as an alternative to our original thought - Emeritus Pinot noir. Veal and scallops were sensational... More

We were surprisingly only 3 tables with customers for lunch. The vegetarian pasta and the rib-eye were both absolutely delicious and they have really good bread. Waiting staff was friendly. It felt like a real French bistro. Very reasonable for what you get.

Elegant restaurant with attentive and knowledgeable service. Reservation handled well, reception warm and efficient. Wine list is extensive but expensive. The food was delicious, well prepared and tastefully presented. We have been to Andres' on an earlier visit and will return. Highly recommended.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel that we were staying in. All started well, good atmosphere and menu lovely. The wine list is a book and to be honest intimidating. We both enjoy our wine but do not profess to be experts on the subject, so we chose a £40 bottle of red. The wine waiter came over... More

Andre's is definitely one of the finest places to eat in Carmel. The special was an exquisite fig sauce over a beautifully cooked duck breast elegantly plated. The other entree at the table was scallops with fettuccine. The scallops tasted great and were perfectly prepared. The fettuccine were cooked perfectly so that they were still just a little al dente... More

We were only interested in a light meal and a glass of wine but we felt that our whole evening was compromised by the overbearing wine waiter. He was very snearing and rude when he thought we didnt want to spend much on our wine and kept trying to push us into buying a bottle - even though not everyone... More

My girlfriend and I went here on New Year's Eve. This was probably the best meal that we've ever had. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted better than you could possibly imagine. The service was excellent as well. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for an outstanding French restaurant.

Tried the Scallops and Veal combination. To die for! Added a great wine with the help of our waiter. Wonderful meal. Will go again the next time we go.
