Newport, RI Restaurants at The Chanler
Exceptional Dining at the 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. The atmosphere at Cara is upbeat and fun while deliciously comfortable and sublime.
Serving as the property’s more casual dining space, The Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Enjoy Mediterranean-inflected modern New England cuisine in an energetic and casual setting alongside stunning views of the ocean.
Have a seat at one of our tables or at our beautifully decorated mahogany and cognac colored wood bar. Seasonally, seating for The Café is offered on our outside terrace, where you can enjoy ocean breezes just steps away from Newport’s Cliff Walk.
