Such a cute little place. Delicious wine, not drenched in sugar like a lot of wineries. Employees were friendly and informative about wines and the town. Food was so fresh and delicious. I can't say enough good thing about it. We can't wait to go back in March. It's a definite must see. Make a reservation. Note that it's a tasting room, not a winery but it was just adorable and we loved it!
We ALWAYS enjoy our time at Casa Carmen! Such a cool vibe! Vermouth is one of our favorites, paired with tasty pintxos, and good company - it's a beautiful way to spend the afternoon!
What a nice place!!! The board was delicious, the wine was fantastic, and the service was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon
Intimate Spanish atmosphere, with warm, welcoming staff. Can't wait to visit again!
Loved the wine and atmosphere. Fare is very light so it is not really a "dinner" experience. It was enough for us, but may not be for all diners. Otherwise there are no complaints! We had a great time. Staff was knowledgeable of the wines.
Fun, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Explanations were concise about the wine selections and the tapas menu was delightful. Would recommend and return
Waited while others were served, loud group next to us encouraged to talk loud by the host, so loud we could not hear each other. They do have good wine.
Cute location, very friendly staff happy to share about their wines. Enjoyable flights, delicious olives, and impressive cheese and meat boards!
Casa Carmen is a delightful spot to sip some wine and nibble some tapas. We sat in the garden which was quiet and fresh but the inside tables also looked very inviting. The staff were friendly and helpful. The wine was delish and the Jamon y Queso board was fabulous. We will be back
Very clean, low key and friendly. Excellent service and informative regarding menu choices
Outstanding! Excellent mediterranean light fare, friendly knowledgable service, and the wines are among the best in the mid-Atlantic region! Will definitely return.
Absolutely fantastic meal in every way. Warm and knowledgeable server helped us with food and wine choices, including cheese and charcuterie board, smoked salmon salad, and flight of their own wines (loved the Alberino). Everything was simply prepared but very high quality. Will definitely return next time we’re visiting!
We LOVED both the food and wine here. There wasn't a single thing we ordered that we didn't like - and we pretty much ordered everything on the menu. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this place and the owners are very friendly. If you like this sort of cuisine I would recommend this place over anywhere else in Chestertown. Thanks for a great experience, we'll be back when we're in town!
We started with roasted olives and garlic, followed by a 5 choice board, paired with a Gruner Vetliner that may have been the ideal companion. We followed with two tins, the smoked trout and calamari, with (oops, a bottle) of their Rose. Brilliant. Sara was a delightful host with a great sense of timing. It was a gentle and comfortable re-entry into the world of dining indoors!
Great, food, wine and service. Will recommend to others and will be back!
Fabulous! Great wines, food and service.
Relaxing, delicious food, great service and the best wine! The perfect little spot for a girls night!
This is a true gem slightly off the beaten path in Chestertown. Excellent selection of their own wine along with Spanish conservas and other tapas. Service is always on point and the atmosphere is quiet and informal. Seating inside is limited thanks to COVID but they have outside seating as well. Our favorite is the sardines and a charcuterie board - they are always excellent. If you've never had conservas before you owe it to yourself to try - Casa Carmen is the only place I know on the shore that features it so it is a welcome diversion from the endless varieties of chicken wings and fried cheese so prevalent on the shore.
Casa Carmen was fabulous! The wine is simply magnificent and the food was very reminiscent of a trip to Spain for tapas. We always get the sardines and a charcuterie board with a nice selection of cheeses and Iberico meats. It is well worth the trip and reservations are highly recommended.
Incredible wine and food. Great atmosphere. It is our favorite stop when we are in Chestertown!
casa carmen was a great experience and can't wait to go back!! even before arriving, i got a call from the manager (i am assuming) asking if we would like to be seated inside or out as it has been getting chiller. this thoughtful gesture meant a lot! then at the restaurant, erika & bridget were the best servers and so attentive. bridget was beyond helpful in helping decide our wine choices for tonight as well as explaining how casa carmen runs! will definitely be back soon!!
