There is a fairly wide menu selection although seafood is prominent. An attractive setting, across the road from Lincolnville Beach. Comfortable interior and there is an early dinner option that is quite reasonable. I believe the "early menu" is good until 6 PM. We have had the haddock, scallops, pork, and broiled seafood dinner options and they were all very... More

We were only there a few days so I didn't get to do all that I would have liked. You have the ocean, mountains, antiquing and beautiful scenery to enjoy.

The food is good, they have the happy hour menu. Nice family feeling. But they don't open after 10/16.

We drove from Camden to Lincolnville two nights in a row to enjoy dinner at Chez Michel Restaurant. It's not a fancy place, but the staff was friendly, they offered a nice variety of seafood choices - they have other options as well - and the food was very good! My wife and I enjoyed fish and chips both nights.... More

A chalk and cheese experience over the previous night; this dinning experience was definitely the cheese. Friendly wait staff deserving of a tip, food that was not only quality but was also hot and well cooked. Actually it is unfair to say to was cooked because it was well prepared, flavoursome, interesting and therefore tasty. Decor is deceiving.. you go... More

Wonderful place, location is great with view of the water. Seafood chowder is chock full of great fresh clams and fish and yummy. Fish and chips were good. Servings plentiful and the service was very friendly and attentive without being overly so. Not cheap eats but well worth the money.

Meals are prepared to order by one person: owner and chef Michel, who oversees every aspect of his restaurant with a discipline that must only come from being a French chef! Presentation is impeccable, with meals served piping hot and... More

Despite it being mid September, the place was rammed. Managed to get a seat at the bar to eat. Food great, but the place was far too hot!

The lobster stew is amazing but you've got to love butter and cream and a lot of lobster! Simple restaurant with great food and very nice staff.
