We loved this place so much we went 2 nights in a row! Amazing margaritas (sandía was my favorite) and food. Between the two nights, we tried the tacos, quesadilla, enchiladas and the chicken salad and everything was so good. Flavors were spot on. We...also enjoyed the bacon wrapped jalapeños (muy picante!). We will be back!!More

We had such a great time eating here, that we went back twice! A short, strong menu with great execution of casual dishes. Awesome maracuya (passionfruit) margaritas and bebida naturales.

Great for a couples night out! Really good drinks and the food was spot on. The staff was super friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was pleasing. We enjoyed quite a few drinks and laughs here. Good mix of latin, Mexican and traditional food with...a focus more on Mexican food.More

The atmosphere is very calm and friendly. We had a quiet rainy dinner here. The waiter was 100% helpful, I don’t eat meat and he was absolutely flexible with the meals. I had vegan taco 🌮 , my husband had fish taco as shared starter....It was perfect portion and delicious. For the main, we had shrimp tostadas, my husband had it as it is on the menu, I had pico de gallo and avocado instead of the shrimps. It was mouthwatering 🙌 I tried the watermelon margarita which was a bit disappointing as all the reviews were about that but probably my expectations got higher .. it was ok but nothing special. But the pineapple juice on rocks with no sugar is highly recommended.More

By far, Carlito’s is the best dining experience you can have in Uvita if you’re looking for a relaxed and wonderful sit down meal. The ambiance, the food, the drinks, the energy of the place itself...it’s all perfect. I am excited to go back again...later this week because it’s that good. The owner named the restaurant after her father, and you can seriously feel the love the restaurant holds in its very foundation the moment you arrive at Carlito’s and it lingers after you go. 10/10 recommend. Get a watermelon margarita and you can’t go wrong no matter what you order. My husband loved it so much that he ordered 2 dinners and ate every bite.More

Carlitos has the best margaritas in the area! All the menu items are fantastic. I think I’ve tried them all but am partial to her enchiladas.

The lady that attended us started being really nice and chatty but when we told her we were ready to order she changed completely, she was completely rude while taking our order. Will never go back to that place.

I've read reviews and confirmed with locals, this was supposed to good. First of all, I was warmly welcomed. I like that. I order the jalapeno poppers and the nights special. Both were better than I expected! Highly recommended, I might see you there...

Great local food, tasty and authentic. I liked the chicken soup a lot and haven’t seen it elsewhere. The chocolate tart does deliver on the promise. Friendly service. Recommend the margaritas. Broad choice. Very nice setting. Located on a bumpy road inside the village. Worth...driving to this place.More

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