A fabulous meal
Joe was very welcoming and obliging. We brought a group of 10 and we all enjoyed our various menu selections. Staff were courteous and the meal was wonderful. My only criticism would be they were slow in coming back to take coffee and sweet orders. They missed out on many orders. Common by staff in a lot of restaurants as they want to clean up and finish. But coffees and desserts and cocktails are the cream



A wonderful place to get together with friends. We just celebrated mums birthday there and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a good day. The food was amazing and great value. Carmel came over to our table to wish mum a special birthday and gave her a souvenir. Mum felt really special. Highly recommend



Amazing Steaks----Best Around
Dined at Carmel's and the Steaks were AMAZING. Huge and cooked to perfection. The service was fantastic, and we even got chatting to Carmel herself. A must try destination in the South


Simply fantastic all round, dont go past this place


Was an awesome meal, and quite a large serving.
