Café Michel is located in historic Clifton Forge, Virginia at 424 East Ridgeway Street.

The interior look of Café Michel strives to remain casual, comfortable & contemporary. The interior of the main dining room was renovated extensively by Michel and Carmen Galand before reopening in June 2014. The main dining room features an antique ice box with a caricature of Michel painted by famous artist, Henrietta Crandall of Clifton Forge.

The restaurant is open five days a week Tuesday thru Saturday for dinner only.  Kitchen hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 5 PM until 9 PM. The dinner menu features fresh sandwiches, seafood, pastas, steaks as well as Alleghany Mountain trout. Our French chef, Michel creates daily specials which often feature fresh fish, pasta as well as delicious soup and salad of the day. He uses fresh ingredients from the best Virginia producers, farmers and suppliers.

The wine list features a selection of wines from  France, Italy, Germany, New Zealand, California and Oregon. There is also a wine by the glass list that changes frequently.  Café Michel also has imported and domestic beers and liquor for your enjoyment.

We hope to see you soon. Please call for a reservation at 540-862-4119.
