“caravela”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Went to Caravela last night and had delicious food. The stuffed clams were delicious. My husband had duck and was very happy with the dish. I had paella and it was delicious also. The salad with avocado dressing was delicious also. Dessert was their homemade tart with fruit. I would go back.

“OK, but Disappointing”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The fish we had had a slight ammonia type taste- really turned us off- appetizers were good, decor pretty good- in fairness to them we might have caught a "bad break" since the rest has been there for many years I guess they must be doing something right- we just didn't find it. and frankly won't go back

“Delicious Food with an Unusual Flare!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

It is a restaurant not to miss, and hard to believe it is right in the heart of Tarrytown. It is easy to see that the chefs enjoy their creativity, and every dish I ever tried here was better than the last.

“What a shame the owner was rude”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We were a group of six spending the day in the area. We were drawn to the prix fixe menu poster displayed in the window, once seated, we were given two different menus...only to find out the prix fixe menu was NOT available on saturdays. (the day we were there). Other items on the menu looked good, so we placed our order. When asked for a slight accomodation to just receive a small plate of pasta for one vegetarian young lady, the owner was indignant. I reminded him that six people ordered full meals, and one person who wanted the pasta-had also ordered two appetisers. After waiting a very long time for our meals-the owner brought the wrong dish and when questioned he said this is the only pasta I can do (which was a pasta and meat dish, and the young lady was a vegetarian) It was insulting, she did not eat it. Wait staff was unattentive, when the owners wife finally came around to fill our glasses of water, we asked if they had forgotton us. First round of drinks arrived in a timely manner, but we also wanted to order bottles of wine-after being ignored for so long-we were just happy to get our food on the table. We would never go back again due to the poor service and attitude of the owner. You would think he would be happy his tables were all full and his prices were not cheap. The quality of the food did taste wonderful-but there are plenty of better places to choose from. Do NOT Recommend.

“The terrible reviews below were much too kind”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Not only did the waiter not know what was on the menu, when we pointed out the items he seemed surprised and couldn't even pronounce most of them. The manager was so defensive when we complained about the waiter that he had the audacity to advise us to leave and find a different restaurant to eat in. We were happy to comply.
