Today, Easter Sunday, I went to Carambola for lunch with 4 friends before attending a matinee at our local theatre. We shared a lovely bottle of wine with our food, and as this resto is a BYOB, it was very affordable. The food was very tasty, nicely presented, and there was enough choice to please all of us!

Attentive ,friendly service .hard to decide on the many delicious tapas plates .cozy atmosphere ,byob makes it affordable and if you don't have wine ,there's a shop almost next door. Loved every time we have been there .a real treat not having to drive to the city for this creative ,fine food . Highly recommend.

What a special find in this little town. Excellent ingredients and preparation. Friendly servers, but a little distracted. Would rate it a 5 if that is tightened up. BYOB is a plus.

We were looking for something new and delicious, and we were not disappointed; the food was excellent! We chose a 11:45 reservation to beat the lunch rush, so our food came quickly, which was great. Loved the presentation and the flavours. Also, I have food restrictions and they were happy to accommodate. The only negative for me was that the... More

I really want to love all aspects of this restaurant because the food really is excellent. However, again, the quality of the food was overshadowed by the overall inadequate service. Surprising given it is not a large restaurant. We were a group of 4 who intended to order a round of plates and share them all. We ordered the first... More

Loved it, Quaint, charming, and in Hudson. Especially lovely in the summer.Tapas were out of this world and service above par! If in the area, do try it... and if not, it is worth the drive... like I said .. in the summer. Even better it is a BYOB place!

Living in the area, I am always drawn to Carambola for a night out for dinner. The owner and chef Scott is very creative using local ingredients whenever possible but ensuring top quality. The menu changes periodically and there are always specials. Whether you are choosing the tapas menu or a full meal you won't be disappointed.
