Experience Refined Newport, RI Dining

Cara Restaurant at The Chanler at Cliff Walk

Boasting beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as our open kitchen featuring a custom-crafted French Bonnet cooking suite, Cara is the crown jewel of The Chanler, providing guests a memorable, curated dining experience. Translating to "dear one" in Italian and "friend" in Gaelic, Cara's name conveys a simple, yet beautiful, juxtaposition to the restaurant’s creative dishes.

Executive Chef Matt Voskuil’s menu draws on classic French, Italian and Spanish influences to present a menu as distinct as The Chanler's 20 uniquely designed guest rooms. Diners can choose one of two modern tasting menu options, or select an appetizer, entrée and dessert from the prix fixe menu. One of the finest Newport, RI restaurants, Cara boasts an upbeat and fun atmosphere while staying deliciously comfortable and sublime.

Cara is an accessible space that can be entered via our accessible outdoor pathway.
