Popped in for a quick bite at lunchtime. We were made very welcome by "Himself" The food was excellent, very tasty Pasta with Prawns and Garlic bread. There were no hold ups despite a steady flow of diners.

Carmines 5.30pm Saturday 2nd December. Packed, buzzing, young, old, local and foreign, a cross section of humanity all having a ball. The joy Carmine and Liz bring to us all is immeasurable. Merry Christmas from Anne & Bruce

We went to Carmines following a friends recommendation, as previously stated this is a very small no frills eatery but we immediately understood why people go back time after time. Such value for money you will not find in anywhere else in Aberdeen and the...More
