The eclectic menu with a Spanish spin gives a unique flavor to this friendly little eatery. Food is fresh and clean...prepared in a kitchen that is part of the whole dining experience, but tucked away enough to not be dominating. The room is nicely designed with most seating being around a horseshoe shaped counter/bar. Carmen's adjoins the Bodacious Olive and Bodacious Cafe spots, each of which are very well worth a visit. Enjoy this total experience. Everyone is super-friendly and informative throughout. Can't go wrong.

Definitely the best food in Pensacola by far. Small bar with a couple of extra tables inside and some outside seating where, for sure, the food is prepared by the owner and chef, guaranteeing the quality of every dish prepared. Food is based on Spanish "tapas", but for lunch some of the items are available as small sandwiches or can be ordered as plates. Not a place for a late dinner, but highly recommended either for lunch or for a few "tapas" and a good glass of wine that ends up being better experience than an expensive dinner elsewhere. The friendly service in a bar setting make you feel at home.

Loved everything about Carmens, the tapas menu was interesting and tasty. Great selection of wine from different countries. Its a small and cosy restaurant with outside seating on pavement. Its style is Spanish in keeping with the Seville area its in . Staff were friendly and helpful with our selection for wine and tapas.
