Food was excellent, service and location world class, but just a little too expensive for what you got.

Thank Bryan J

Before we even get to the food, the restaurant location is awesome, sitting on a hilltop with panoramic views of the Caribbean sea. It is a great location for a romantic dinner, just soaking in the beautiful view. The food is great, We had the fish carpaccio for an appetizer which was outstanding fresh with a cilantro salsa, I also has the shrimp bisque which was a bit pedestrian (take a pass on that) for mains we had the Mahi Mahi cooked to perfection and my date the fried pork bellies which were truly sublime. Our server Emmerson was attentive, friendly and informative. The place is a bit on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for.

Excellent food, great views and top service. We had an amazing waiter called Emerson who made our evening especially memorable. So much so we came back a second time!

The location is fantastic, up a steep hill with beautiful views of the surrounding area. The restaurant itself is very attractive and the food was delicious. All 4 of us kept raving about everything we were eating. My daughter took the waiter's recommendation and had one of the best meals of her life - and she is a tough critic.

Again, I have to laugh at all of these British people raving about the food here like it's the best meal they've ever had (similar to how they rave about Jacqui O's). It just confirms what I've always known, and yes it's obnoxious, but it's the truth - British people don't know what great food is.

Apparently some people get it - see some of the reviews where people with refined palettes recognize that the food at Carmichaels is simply not very good.

When you consider how expensive it is, the quality of the food is unforgivable.

Oh yeah, the decor and view are great.
