Great summer lunch

I met two friends for lunch at Carmel Cafe. While I am not a fan of Mediterranean tapas, they also have large plate items. I ordered the BLTA which is a BLT with avocado. It came with a side as well. I chose the seasonal vegetables which were large roasted veggies including broccolini, large... read more

So I wasn't sure what to expect from a restaurant in a shopping plaza and I was pleasantly surprised! Very nice interior and decor, pleasant staff and the food was delicious. They have a small menu but very delicious options. I will definitely be back soon.

Wonderful, casual atmosphere. Went with 4 girlfriends. We ordered several appetizers to share. Flatbread, shrimp & calamari, and chickpea sticks, all were different and very tasty. Everyones entree was delicious. I had the Med. chicken, very good, but a little salty. Crab cakes, delicious. A little pricey, but the wine selection was outstanding. Casual, no rush, wait service terrific.

May 16, 2015: We came here for dessert and coffee following s disasterous dinner at Pensare in Dunedin. What a marvelous way to finish off an evening with friends. We could hold a conversation without effort or difficulty hearing. Our server, Natalie, was witty, attentive and a joy to encounter. The Key Lime Pie was delicious, and the coffee was... More

I shared the lunch mezze, perfect! I must say you should try the apricot quinoa...so good! I had a house salad, which was fresh and the dressing was a light and lemony flavor. The feta on the salad made it great. I would like to go back for dinner

Reserved table for 10 on New Year's Eve, offered specials and bottles of wine for a not too expensive birthday. I've been here several times and I definitely recommend their gnocchi, it is awesome.

I have been to Carmel many, many times over the last few years. It has a unique tapas style menu with unique flavors. Some of our favorites are the chick pea fries, the mini mezza platter, the tomato basil flat bread and the empanadas. We are partial to mostly the appetizers as we are frequent happy hour visitors. They have... More

Went on a Wednesday around 5:30. Called ahead to make a reservation, was asked if it was for a special occasion. I stated yes in fact it's an Anniversary dinner. Arrived and was seated and sat of a full 10 minutes before any one came near us. Restaurant was not crowded. When a waiter approached our table, he did apologize.... More

This restaurant had very nice Valentine's Day specials, plus they decorated the restaurant with rose petals.... very romantic place, soft lighting, and the best Sangria, I suggest the pressed Sangria, it is extremely good. They also gave a rose to ladies that ordered from their valentine's day special menu. And not only do they take reservations, they honor them! LOL... More

Yesterday a large group of my friends and I had lunch at the Carmel Cafe in Clearwater. I made a reservation and was pleased to see a cozy, private section at the front of Carmel was set up and ready for our group. The two servers who were to take care of us introduced themselves to me and were very... More
