We had lunch at Carmel's this past weekend and enjoyed our lunch and service. Some very unique items and flavours can be found on the menu. Beautiful décor package and layout inside. We had good service once we figured out the electronic ordering system and how to operate it although our waitress was always available for assistance. I had the... More

Nice place to stop for q glass of wine..but if your looking for a place where you can grab a snack, this isn't it. Another place with an over priced new age menu that is only for that special pallet

Service is always great and the food is great too. Being as you have a choice of meal sizes you can order the small portion. Then get several items to share.

This place is so good and a great concept utilizing IPads to order. The menu is varied, I had the frite steak and substituted quinoa in place of the fries. Steak was good, a bit overcooked but edible. Quinoa was my first and it was yummy with pistachios, dried cranberries and apricots. We also had the mussels and they were... More

We have dined here a few times and we always get good service. I feel food could have been better. Steak was a bit tough. Did not say anything but I am sure they would have corrected as they try very hard.

Fast service. Attentive service. Cool place to hang out with my girlfriends and absolutely loved the crab cakes. Go and experience it.

We stayed near Busch Gardens but a friend recommended we drive to Carmel Cafe. We had great service, a relaxed but nice atmosphere and most importantly great food.

Recently dined here for a girls night dinner and I will be back to visit. Great happy hour wine specials and $5 appetizers. I had the bisque which was very good and also the spare rib entree. The ribs tasted a little too much like pot roast to me and I found the portion on the small size. Also the... More

We had the Happy Hour Mezza plate and the I had the small Moroccan Chicken and my friend had the Salmon Salad. It was all delicious. I especially enjoyed the roasted veggies and was delighted to see the portion size was moderate instead of the usual gigantic portions. A nice pleasant ambience with knowledgeable staff. Will definitely go back.

We just discovered this restaurant (the Clearwater/Country Harbour location) on Sunday evening, ate at the Carrollwood loc last night, and are going back Wednesday with friends. Service is friendly and efficient. Maria took good care of us at the Carrollwood location. The food is really flavorful, nicely presented and very reasonably priced. We went for the Prix Fixe menu Sunday... More
