Some of the tastiet food I have ever eaten!

Beautifully designed resturant with very tasty authentic food. the staff were so passionate about all the dishes. They served Cap de Barbaria which is the local wine and it is stunning! It was quite expensive though!

We ate at Can Carlos on the first Monday evening of our holiday, when we arrived we were greeted if that's what you can call it, by a woman we assumed was in charge? We said that we had booked a table but didn't seam to understand and asked what table we wanted a bit strange when we had booked.... More

I went with my husband and a couple and we had a fantastic dinner hosted by Araújo, a great waiter! He suggested the best in his opinion and everything was so delicious that we couldn't order dessert without his recommendation! Must have: ravioli with pecorino and pear, ojo de bife, and the pastry I guess cantonata something like this... Everything... More

Second year in a row and again we loved it. Such a beautiful setting, whether in the garden or under the wooden awning (given the threat of thunderstorms we were under cover, which was a very wise move come 11pm when the storms hit and others went running!). It is an incredibly relaxing setting as well, just stunning. Very friendly... More

Beautifully set in a traditional courtyard, you would hardly think you were just off the main road. Excellent waiters and staff who are attentive to all needs. Bread to start was so-so but everything else that followed beautiful. Don't miss the sea bream which is grilled to absolute perfection and perfect for 2+. We enjoyed the risotto as well. Get...

Had a lovely lobster starter followed by a carbonara. It was a little expensive but the atmosphere and restaurant was set in a lovely spacious court yard.

Can Carlos is a very good restaurant. The service is pretty good. A member of the staff (italian guy) is always happy and always gives the best. You can spot his enthusiasm. Back to the restaurant, the setting is nice. It is a cosy restaurant in a lovely courtyard. The food is delicious. At the start you don't imagine the... More
