Wehad several recommendations and went there for a romantic dinner. Alas! The menu is a jumble to accomodate as many as possible (american, thai, french-like), and the interiors are as dull as a fast food chain can be. Too bad given the special location (a patio with a large fountain). The food itself was good. Service was basic. Not a... More

Anton and Michel has to be one of the older restaurants in carmel by the sea. There is a reason it has lasted so long, the food and service are excellent. Great modern intimate atmosphere throughout the restaurant. This latest trip we dined in the bar by a roaring fire. Great place to celebrate Valentine's Day. The salmon was prepared... More

Had lunch here on our way to Pebble Beach. Beautifully decorated, friendly staff, exceptional service and great food. The best cream of mushroom soup ever. Can't say enough good things about Anton & Michel's! So worth trying when in town.

I always stop by for lunch when in the area. The food is fresh and properly cooked and presented. One nice note is that the prices are not expensive especially for Carmel. It is located by the Court of the Fountains on Mission Street. The service is impeccable with waiters who are professionals.

The food was excellent, and the timing of service between courses was spot on. We had a lovely table in the back, with a great view of the fountain and water through the window, atmosphere was comfortable and classy. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Anton & Michel all the way to dessert!

We were in a private room for my friends 50th Birthday. It was a pre-set menu ( which most restaurants do for large parties ). There was a small hiccup in the beginning as the menu the birthday girl saw when she booked it, was not the menu that was given to us. This was corrected quickly, with even more... More

We've been to Carmel many times (although not recently) and had for some reason never eaten here, one of Carmel's oldest restaurants under a single ownership, but thought we would try it on a Sunday evening in mid-December after reading a recent favorable review by the SF Chronicle Food editor, Michael Bauer. We opted for the prix fixe ($139 for... More

My husband had a nice quality meal here. We took advantage of the early bird and enjoyed the meal. The atmosphere is quiet with casual elegance. The service was very attentive but not over-bearing. I highly recommend if you visit Carmel and want a nice meal with good wine selection.

We spent five days in Carmel and tried several of the local restaurants. We arrived around 8:00 and it was very quiet after the dinner rush, with only five or six tables full. Our meal was served professionally, the wine was spectacular, and the ambiance was so relaxing - just perfect for conversation. We had been there earlier in the... More
