We had read good reviews of Carmo and it did not disappoint us. We had the amberjack collars, which were very fresh and tender. For a main dish, we both got the daily curry — one with added shrimp and one with just veggies. The curry was so complex, but subtle at the same time. It didn’t whomp you upside of the head like some Thai curries do. It has a spiciness that didn’t overwhelm the flavors. Every bite was delicious veggies, rice, and curry sauce. We paired it with a reasonably-priced Portuguese wine. It was a memorable dining experience, and not a pretentious place at all. If we had more time on our trip, we’d eat here again.

Incredible. It is rare to find a restaurant with outstanding vegan food and outstanding meat and seafood options. The service was great, there was very nice jazz music playing and the ambiance was heavenly. We stayed 2 hours and the time flew by. Would highly recommend to all.

Every single thing we ordered was delicious. Go to this restaurant with friends who want to share food because you'll want to try everything. The inside has a great atmosphere and the service was great as well. Would highly recommend trying this place out, especially if you are vegetarian.

Decided to have a birthday dinner there and we LOVED everything. The staff was so nice! We also loved that our waiter also played the tambourine 😍 of course always fresh and delish there and thank you for having a cork fee so we didn’t have to party with full wine bottles lol

Our order came out in a weird order. We ordered drinks, appetizers and food at the same time. We got our food first, then drinks, then appetizers. Other than that everything was good.

The service was perfect, as always. Speciality drinks were delicious. It's hard to come here without getting the Rico, which is a great mix of flavors, although we have had the whole fish special which was wonderful too. The flatbread is simple, but yummy and perfect to share.

Food here is AMAZING!!!!! It’s very hard to find gluten free/ vegan food on my New Orleans trip and this place exceeded my expectations! My host was so kind and helpful, he was eager to point out all the gluten/dairy free options. And the amazing drink I got, omg!! I’m still recalling how great it tasted. I ordered the “Rico” with vegan cheese. I will be coming back here for sure!!

We showed up for our reservation and the restaurant had new hours and was closed. We 100% understand limited hours due to COVID-19, but any other restaurant when they needed to close they called and notified us. We even confirmed the reservation through Open Table and still no notification that their hours were changed and our reservation was cancelled. Very rude and unprofessional.

We shared the ceviche to start with La Paloma to drink, which was really a delicious drink. The Ceviche was wonderful the fish was fresh and tasty. She had the curry with Tofu and I had the Poke bowl. Each dish was great, we finished with the Kailua chocolate cake and strawberry sherbet. Not much Kailua flavor but it was a nice finisher.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! My initial impression was vegetarian and vegan only. They have dishes with all options to satisfy every food lifestyle. I'm definitely going back to try other dishes.
