We go here every year when we stay in Florida. This place is so good. It’s different than the Mexican food at home but we like it.

The food was great and the staff was wonderful. We loved the atmosphere and it was very clean. Leftovers were just as good.

The service was excellent the food delicious. The mixed drinks—the frozen margarita. And sangria really hit the spot. The facility was very clean. I had the vegetarian plate and it was delicious especially the spinach enchiladas.

We have eaten food from Carmelita’s on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. We usually taken food home, in part, because it is frequently quite busy. Obviously, others like it as well. I hesitate to single out any one dish because everything has been...More

The food was relatively bland, the interior was not very authentic and there were no hard liquor cocktails--the Margueritas were from a wine blend. The service was attentive but the Mariachi band was too close for comfort. I wouldn't go back!

You should call and see. The area I am aware of would be semi-private at best. They have a large back room as well as a smaller front dining area. Both have been busy when we are there.
