Diner Reviews
  • "I went to Carambola this past weekend with 3 friends. The food was excellent as was the service but there is a choice of tapas (appetizer size plates) for $16 on the average or main dishes around $30-$35. To get a full meal for a man, they needed 2-3 tapas a person which gets too expensive. We ordered 3 tapas for a couple and that wasn't enough food for the men in our group. The selection is very good though"

  • "Somehow we missed it was BYOB only. We are visiting from the U.S. and found this on open table. There really isn't a wine store open next door so my husband had to find a place - 20 mins later - we were able to order. It was worth all that stress! The tuna nachos, foie gras, bone marrow, scallops... Everything was amazing! We went back w friends 2 days later only this time brought wine. Again, food was fabulous! We had early reservations tho and the service was VERY slow. Seemed as if she took care of the other 4 tables and ignored us. That was the only dissapointing thing I can say. I can't say enough about the food- a must go to place. And make sure you Bring Your Own Wine!!!"

  • "Met four friends for lunch and found this restaurant on Open Table. Liked the reviews and booked a reservation. All four of them had been there before and were really happy I had booked it. Turned out that the open table reviews were right. Excellent food and service. Great lunch time experience."

  • "Carambola is an incredible restaurant. The tuna tartare nachos are scrumptious as is the bone marrow (we order it every time), not to mention the seared foie gras, which is worthy of fine dining in Avignon."

  • "Carambola is the best restaurant for miles around (including downtown Montreal) and is one of the best I have been to. We dine out a lot and we look for inventive foods with lots of taste and interesting combinations. Carambola always manages to deliver an excellent dining experience. Everyone talks about how great Montreal restaurants are. Since moving to the area from Vancouver we have been generally disappointed by the restaurants in greater Montreal - EXCEPT for Carambola. We will continue to eat here on a regular basis!!"

  • "I was looking for a place to dine before attenting a show at the Hudson Village Theatre (only 400m away) and several people recommended Carambola. Both my Mom and I truly enjoyed the various dishes and the service was great also. It's a great BYOW Bistro."

  • "It's very hard to get a reservation here as it is a small locale and it's always busy but so very worth the trouble! The food was delicious! We decided to go the tapas route since choosing a main course was difficult and tried 4 different dishes---all were amazing! It's a bring-your-own-wine resto which is nice. Highly recommend it."

  • "We try to schedule a visit once a month and try something new on the unique menu. We have never been disappointed. The quality and preparation of food is excellent, service is always friendly and the price is reasonable. The fact that we can bring our own wine assures that we can enjoy a gourmet meal with top notch service for less than $100 with dessert, coffee, tip and tax included (for 2). And the menu is diverse and large enough to allow us to try something new on most visits. We also use it as a special destination whenever we have out of town guest visiting us which always earns rave reviews from those friends as well. Just a lovely, friendly and special neighborhood place to go. We often recommend our Carambola to family and friends."

  • "Our book club chose Carambola for our annual dinner out and nobody was disappointed. Although we had to drive a considerable distance to get there, it was well worth it. It is great to be able to have 2 tapas meals and therefore get to sample more of the fabulous food. Wait staff was very accommodating, dividing a very complicated bill into 6 parts. Much appreciated. We'll be back!"

  • "Lovely birthday diner, entertaining sampling bonanza! We had soup, 6 different tapas and desert and all were delightful, taste bud nirvana!!! Beautiful and colorful. Portions just right. Lots of fish and sea food - we do not eat chicken nor meat and we had MUCH to choose from. Musical desert laced with pop rocks for a sizzling experience! Wonderful place. Service really great and warm, discreet, in the shadow, no conversation busters, not bothersome. We left feeling great not full and uncomfortable. You just think of the next time you will visit. ;-)"

  • "We went to Carambola on recommendations from family who live in the area. It was our anniversary and we enjoyed the bottle of wine that we were able to bring with us. We then really enjoyed the food. It is very innovative very well prepared and nothing was left on the plates. We shared some tapas and they were more than satisfying. We must go back to try some other selections because making a selection from the menu was quite difficult as everything sounded interesting! Service was very good and very friendly. It was obvious from the noise level that others were also enjoying their meals. It was busy so reservations are recommended"

  • "Once more we spent an enjoyable evening at Carambola with good food, from excellent sweet potato fries to deer dumplings to rack of lamb accompanied by friendly and efficient service. This is a BYOB restaurant which makes it all the better considering that you can bring and enjoy a good bottle of wine without breaking the bank. And for foodies, you can keep an eye on the chef as he prepares your food."

  • "It was our first time here. I had heard great things, however I heard it was expensive, which I didn't feel was the case at all. I thought the portion size for tapas vs price was perfectly on point. The menu offered perfect diversity for everyones palettes, we were a group of 5 and we All Ordered 2 diffrent choices each and tried every Plate. The waitresses were new so maybe not as knowledgeable YET to answer questions, but had great personalities so no doubt they will add even more charm when they get to know all the plates. All jn all it was great And I will definitely go back with just my hubby or a group."
