“Fish 'n' Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Gorgeous fish and proportions were good but a bit expensive. The service was efficient but there is always a lot of people waiting to get their meals they have paid for. the staff are always polite.

“Best Chips Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

The title pretty much sums this review up.The chips at Carlos are the best. You needn't worry about greasy fingers or over cooked fries as these are cooked to complete perfection. I do recommend it here, it's definatly good value for money and the portion sizes are more than reasonable.

“Perfect fish & chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Carlo's is the perfect Fish & Chips restaurant/take-away.

My partner and I visited on our first night in Alnwick and we were definitely not disappointed. The menu includes several varieties of white fish, all of which come in Carlo's own batter recipe, which was not to heavy and perfect tasting. The chips as well come in various sizes and were the perfect chip-shop thickness. No fatty crispy chips, only good, thick, traditional chunks of potato.

Prices are also excellent. Carlo's is situated right in the heart of Alnwick and to sit down with Cod, Chips, Curry, Bread, Butter and a pot of tea costs £7.50.

I don't think anything else needs to be said - Carlo's is the perfect chippy!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

I visited Carlos and it has limited tables,but the fish and chips is well worth waiting for the fish was fresh and well fried.This is not one of those flash gastro affairs what it does it does well, basic fish and chips at a fair price,well worth a visit.
