    The service was very attentive and the food was outstanding! We both had the bone-in pork chops and they were cooked perfectly! One of our favorite places to eat in Carmel.

    As always, this place never fails to impress! The food is delicious (generous portions), amazing & attentive servers, and fun times listening to the singing and dancing to traditional music. Make a reservation! And be prepared to dance if you want to, talk to the people at the tables around you if you are in the mood to meet new people, or just enjoy your own dinner by yourselves!

    One of our favorite restaurants in Carmel! We love that it’s dog friendly (we always bring our corgi pup with us) and the food is always incredible. We’ve been going here every year for the past 7 years (since we’ve been married). We’ve celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here over the years. It’s now a tradition of ours to take a photo in front of the fireplace. We always recommend Portabella to friends visiting Carmel.

Discover Carmel

A rising star along the California coast, Carmel-by-the-Sea is quickly making a name for itself on the dining scene. There's a European feel to Carmel, and that ambiance is reflected in the city's large number of French-influenced restaurants. As you nibble French bread and sip a glass of wine, it will be easy to imagine that you've been transported to a genuine Parisian bistro. Fresh seafood is plentiful in Carmel - no surprise given its coastal location. You'll find seafood dishes in Carmel's restaurants that range from European to Mexican in cuisine. You'll also have no trouble finding great seafood in Carmel's All-American steakhouses. The Californian commitment to healthy eating means that dishes lean heavily on produce, and vegetarian options abound in the local restaurants. Even vegans will find dishes to suit their tastes.
