Great food, great service, great margaritas! I'm vegan, and all the servers and staff were super knowledgeable about which dishes could be made vegan. They were all delicious!

This place was great. Alvin made the best margarita ever! A simple menu of fabulous food made it easy to try several things to share. Worth a trip if just for the drinks.

We had such a great experience our first night in Uvita that we came back two nights late. Great food, drinks, and service. And the chocolate tart made an amazing ending!

My GF and I ate dinner at this awesome restaurant, in the village of Uvita. Perfect ambience, friendly service, super tasty food (fish tacos and taco soup), and one of the best Margarita I've ever had (pro tip: go with the tamarindo/chili one). Highly recommended!

Fantastic food. Ate here twice during the nine days we were in Uvita. Order the jalapeno pina margarita - you won't be sorry. Great service. All the locals rave about Carlito's for a reason.

It is an amazing place to share with friends, couple or family. The menu is not so long, but the food is soooo good! You have to taste de roasted tomato sauce. You have to taste it!

Carlitos is closed this week but I'm sure Trisha would be happy to make something that meets your needs. She is super flexible.
