Fine Dining in a Gracious Oceanfront Mansion

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.

An expertly crafted menu draws on classic French, Italian and Spanish influences to present dishes as distinct as The Chanler's 20 uniquely designed guest rooms. Guests 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.

Hours: Served daily, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Please note, Cara will be closed on June 4th and June 25th.
