Nice food but a bit pricey.

Only deals on steak platters and not tapas

Too much ice in the sangria not value for money

It was a really nice restaurant and location. Service wasn’t great at times and we were placed on the top floor way above everyone else and the main restaurant so it was deserted. However they did the very best they could and seated us an hour before our actual booking.

The tapas and rose wine were outstanding! And I loved the steak salad- definitely get it. The place was busy and not many staff were on but despite this they were efficient, polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place and it’s suitable for groups or couples.

We went on the extended Eat out to help out. The steak was lovely but only came with one side so either chips OR salad which I felt was not good value. The chips were poor quality kebab shop type ones. There was a large group blatantly altogether split across two tables with a small gap between, one of whom was coughing a lot and kept wandering around to go outside for a cigarette. Service was good. Would not return without the deal as despite lovely steak would be too expensive for me and sadly not covid safe. Whilst much of the problem lies with customers not playing by the rules, the restaurant could have done more.

Wonderful steaks, we had the platter with various steak types. Perfectly cooked, we like medium rare and they were all cooked to perfection. Only down point was no draught beers/lager, but that was probably due C19.

We went here during eat out to help out. Very good service originally, but went down a bit when it got busy and had to keep catching people attention. Two of us shared some tapas and the other three had steak. The steak was great, and cooked as requested. We weren’t a big fan of the tapas, calamari was originally over salted and over cooked but was quickly replaced when we complained. Tapas was ok, but would be better at a tapas restaurant, think here is better for the steak. Overall was an ok evening, but thank you for your hospitality.

We have been to Carmona twice since lockdown finished and both times the food has been very nice but the service is WAY too slow. Last Friday, we booked a table at 6pm, ordered food at 6:15pm and we got our food at 7:05pm. The waiters are lovely but the kitchen is far too slow, they need to get much better at managing time. It's only half full at the moment because of social distancing restrictions so there is no excuse to be so slow. It's a shame because the food is really good.

Well organised. In the current climate, we felt safe & suitably away from other diners. The waitress was very helpful & explained how we should order tapas (never having had it before). Food was delicious. We actually ordered too much, so will know to order less next time, but it was really lovely. A most enjoyable evening.
