Had not been in Carlito's for year's. Stopped off on the way home from Dublin. My starter was nice, but thought the mains were lacking in flavour.

Popped in late at night on the way down to catch the ferry and when most other places were closed. Ordered a classic Margherita pizza, that took for ever to come as the chef appeared to be focusing his efforts on serving customers in an a joining restaurant! The actual pizza when it did arrive was lacking in taste and... More

A warm welcome to a very nice busy restaurant - a good sign midweek. Goats cheese starter and Sea Bass were both very good and tasty - the Bass could have been improved though with a wee bit of sauce as it was a bit dry but tasty none the less. All four of us enjoyed our meal and would... More

From when you walk through the door to the comfortable waiting area until you leave Declan, Carmel & the staff can't do enough for you. There is a wide selection of beers, spirits and wines in stock. I've never been disappointed with any choice from the menu. The lime chicken is my usual choice and it is the best I've... More
