We had made reservations or at least called to be on their list, so sat at the ad until the table was ready. Of course a good selection of wine. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming on this busy Friday evening. We only wanted a light dinner so went with lighter fare, the lobster pizza is delicious. Fun evening of... More

I was visiting the area and joined a friend for dinner. Looking at the menu, I was really pleased with the choices. We both ended up ordering the house salad and the lobster risotto. The salad was good, but the risotto was hardly risotto. For one, it was obvious Arborio rice wasn't used and that they just tossed some creamy... More

Went Sunday evening with friends before a concert and we ordered from the Prix Fixe menu, an excellent value (only available Sunday and Monday). Chickpea fries, very lightly fried and served with delicious tomato jam and curry aioli, then choice of lobster bisque, butternut squash soup (both excellent). Salads also available. Main courses: steak frites, moroccan chicken, crab cakes (all... More

We enjoyed a fantastic family dinner for seven in a private room at Carmel Cafe and Wine Bar. Great specials for wine on Wednesdays! Everyone enjoyed themselves in this upscale setting. The place was packed. Glad we made reservations. Great server and delicious entrees! Cheers!

This was the first time I have eaten at Carmel Cafe. I had an out of town guest interested in eating at a Mediterranean style restaurant. while he was a bit disappointed with the atmosphere, describing it as somewhat more typical of a sports bar, I have to say that at all times the music was held in the background,...

Carmel Cafe in the Countryside area of Clearwater is an excellent gem hidden in the Northwood Plaza on the corner of Enterprise and McMullen Booth. Nathalie was our server and she provided excellent service...very knowledgeable about the food and wines. The atmosphere is very comfortable and is perfect for everything from a romantic dinner, a business party, to a celebration.... More

We were there on a quiet Saturday night during football season. We had the shrimp and grits special that was average at best. Two of the others at our table had the burgers and we're disappointed as the buns were not the usual great buns that are served. The burgers were also average. We were disappointed as we have been...

We had such a great time at this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We ordered several appetizers which were small but delicious, and also ordered from the prix fixe menu. The prix fixe menu had just the right amount of selection and although they say the portions are on the smaller size, the portions were... More

This establishment is very clean. I noticed this straight away, good selection of drinks. The sangria is lovely. Also good to be able to see pictures of the meals before we ordered. The edamame dip is served with prawn crackers for done weird reason, not to my taste. But artichoke and spinach dip was amazing! Steaks were lovely. The sea... More
