My wife and I visited Carambola last week. The food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. I had peanut soup for the first time. It was spectacular. Would go again in a second.

The ambiance is wonderful, the background music is perfect, you are not rushed to finish your meal and lingering afterwards toenjoy the music is ok. The price is average for the island but the food is most certainly not. The presentation is beautiful, in fact one of my sister took a picture because she thought is was just too pretty to eat. The meal is delicious, in fact we went back there three times during our 14 day stay. The wait staff, Marlon, Aldo and Edwardo will immediately welcome you with so much warmth you will immediately relax and enjoy the superb meal prepared for you. A definite yes to this restaurant.

Went last week with 10 people, restaurant was empty, but slow season has begun. Food and service was awesome. Aldo our service did a super job, let us sample the sangria, lobster bisque. All ten of us were very happy with meal and service, would highly recommend!

What a great place! First visit was so great we went back at the end of the week for another. Despite the higher prices, the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff was outstanding and the presentation scrumptious making it all so worth it. Aldo, Eduardo and Marlon were fabulous and Martin Haselhoef (Owner) should be proud of his establishment. I hope everyone gets the chance to visit Carambola!
