We had lunch here and was completely blown away. The views from the dining room are stunning and the food was excellent. Prices were extremely reasonable for lunch. I would highly recommend this place to my friends.

We enjoyed a lovely sunset over the mountains in Roanoke, VA, while dining on some fabulous food! The service was attentive but not intrusive. We wonder why we waited so long to go there!!

This is a favorite place of ours. We eat there as often as we can find time together. My wife and I have always had wonderful meals each and everytime we have been there. Everything is great! The special homemade hot sauce is out of this world. Word to the wise, a little goes a long way!

Carlos has been a favorite of mine for a long time--1st ate there back when it was a tiny joint downtown. I know that locals sometimes complain about it, but I guess they expect Mexican or something. However, for those who love international cuisine, you definitely want to try this. Black beans and rice, plantains, great seafood as well as... More

Just awful! My husband and I went to Carlos for Valentines Day. From the the very beginning it was terrible. They lost our reservation, then it magical appeared after the humiliation in front of a crowd. Then, this is a big one, the food was just awful. The flavors were just bland and not typical of Brazilian food at all.... More
