Anton & Michel Restaurant
Our lunch was beyond our expectations. I had sand dabs both were just delicious. We also loved the fact they served bread with butter instead of the usual boring olive oil mixture). We've made dinner reservations for a few days later & included some friends.
The salads and my wife's fish were excellent. My paella was a big disappointment. Bland as could be and the shellfish, though plentiful were tough and overcooked while the prawns were cooked well but tasteless. It was as if the kitchen neglected to add herbs and spices.
Overcooked duck breast and overpriced.
We enjoyed a great dinner on Saturday night. The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic! It’s a special dining experience that everyone should treat themselves to.
Great service and food was delicious. There were 5 of us and every plate was cleaned!
The service was outstanding. My husband ordered a dinner special —breaded Sole and described it as being tasteless. I ordered the duck breast and found it to be below what I am accustomed to having at a fine dining establishment. I’m not sure that I will try it again. There are so many other great restaurants in Carmel.
Great food, attentive and friendly staff, good wine list and nice relaxed ambience. Loved it and will return!
A great traditional Carmel restaurant. Very attentive service and great food.
Loved this place . The food and service was outstanding the restaurant was beautiful
Very classical restaurant with emphasis on great service. Food was very well prepared and presented. Wine choices were excellent. Prices in line with what one would expect in Carmel. We would return for another special occasion.
Celebrated my birthday there with family and had a wonderful time!
The service was outstanding as is the ambiance in this restaurant. We thought the food very good but not great, perhaps too much expectation based on the reviews. I would recommend going though.
We were visiting Carmel and I wanted to find a special occasion restaurant for my husband's birthday. I had read about the table service with the Caesar salad, rack of lamb, and flambe dessert. It was so perfect and we will never forget the evening we had at your restaurant. Worth every penny!
We had a lovely dining experience at Anton and Michel. Victor was an AMAZING waiter! The manager was also very courteous and welcoming! Every course was deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. Delicious clam chowder, shrimp spring rolls. The entrees of sea bass and garlic chicken were excellent. We did not have room for the desserts but they looked amazing! Next time for sure!
Excellent meal and service!!!!
Food was mediocre. Whipped cream on lemon tart was rancid.
Great setting in an internal plaza with a reflection pool outside. The ambiance, food and service were all outstanding.
We had a nice meal at Anton & Michel. The pork tenderloin was very good with a nice amount of rice and veggies. My husband had the prawns & pasta. It was good, also, but the shrimp were small. When I've had prawns they are usually quite large so shrimp would have been a better choice of words. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal.
We had an excellent dinner at Anton and Michel on Saturday night. The Tuna Tartare, Lobster Bisque, Beet Salad, Lamp Chops, the 'Catch' plate (Sea Bass with asparagus), Creme Brulee and Chocolate cake were all fantastic. The only downside is that we were seated in a cramped corner without much of a view, but the service and food were wonderful and made for a very nice evening.
Nice setting overlooking a pool with a fountain. Casual and trendy inside. Great service and food- beet salad, salmon and catch of the day. Broad wine list. Worth trying out.
Exceptional service! Superb meals; esp duck, short rib, deserts. Super wine selection. Staff was outstanding!
Best Duck ever. We like to come here for our anniversary. The 3 course "early bird" special can't be beat.
It was a fabulous experience start to finish. Menu choices and specials were amazing
My daughter and I went for lunch. We were seated immediately. The staff is attentive without being invasive. The food was delicious as always. Absolutely love their French Onion soup. Yummm! The delicious garlic herb roasted chicken is really tender. Highly recommend.
food was terrific. service even better. fabulous wine list. a must when you visit carmel.
Nice ambiance, attentive service, delicious cuisine! Can’t wait to visit again!
I brought my girlfriend and her friends out for a night to celebrate her birthday. Luiz was a fantastic maître d'hôtel and helped me with our reservation and ensured our entire experience was fantastic. I will definitely be going back next time I am in Carmel.
I had the duck and it was excellent. My wife and I shared the hallume and tomato appetizer, also excellent.
My wife had the braised short ribs. They were excellent as well. However the sauce on her short ribs was broken. Seeing little pools of fat floating around on the sauce is not that appetizing. Just a matter of paying more attention. I'm just a home cook, and my sauce is NEVER broken.
We make this our absolute must on our 3 visits a year. Has never changed. Always perfect and you feel warm and invited
Have dined here many times over the years. Always excellent food and service. consistently good.
Very rich, uninspiring food. Service was ok but it’s time to move into the 22 st century
Really wonderful lunch. Fresh and delicious. Everything was so flavorful with just the right twist: cream of mushroom soup with garlic, wedge salad with artichoke dressing. Atmosphere is beautiful inside and out. Service was attentive and non-intrusive.
We were in Carmel for a weekend getaway and wanted a nice dinner. Thought we'd give Anton & Michel's a try. Glad we did! Food was excellent. Service was good too.
My only complaint was we were seated in a room on the side away from the main dining room so there wasn't much ambiance as it was just us and another table of people in there. Overall a very nice dinner.
They didn't say anything about our anniversary and our table was right by the busser station so kinda disappointed
My husband and I came to Anton and Michel for our anniversary. The food was so delicious and it was a quiet, cozy, and romantic atmosphere. The staff was very friendly. We would definitely come again!
great dinner. outstanding onion soup and beautiful pepper steak. lovely table for 4 overlooking the small pool in the patio. our guests had just returned from France and said this was better than most of the meals they had in Paris and the Loire and cheaper considering the exchange rate. Great waiter (from Naples, no less!) wonderful evening!
This is one of the very best restaurants I've ever been. Food was incredible, I had the French Onion soup and the duck. Both were excellent. My friend had the endive salad and the steak. The salad had a light but very favorable dressing and she said it was the best steak she can remember ever having. Desert was Cherries Jubilee prepared by the maitre d at our table. He was very personable and actually came by often during the meal to make sure everything was fine. The wait staff was also excellent. An outstanding restaurant.
Service was great.. food was awesome.. the back of the restaurant faces a small quaint courtyard with outdoor seating. Heaters at those seats would be an improvement, but the ambience is awesome.
Everything might have been better if our waiter had a little more class. He totally messed up the entree request! Also, very limited wine selection if you don't want an entire bottle.
We always dine at Anton & Michel when we visit Carmel. This visit was even better with the 3 course early bird special. Food was fabulous as usual. Service was good and host was top notch.
