To had insult to injury, the waiter had the gall to ask me if I wanted him to add his tip to the bill when I asked for it. These people have... More

San carbon is a rather large, crowded, out of the way restaurant that is a short cab ride from Poblado park. When we asked to bring a bottle that they did not carry, they priced themselves so high as to eliminate this option and demonstrated that they placed profit above customer service. Louis provided great service but this is a... More

I liked the restaurant, the food was cheap and good. My friends ordered "La Picada" plate and they didn't like it, so I can you better off ordering a nice cut.

San Carbon is underneath a huge Palapa with lots of greenery surrounding the Palapa. It is a very popular place - you usually need reservations. The food is truly superb, the menu is wide, and the service is very attentive. It was great to see all the waiters assisting tables when necessary, regardless of which waiter the table was assigned... More
