We stopped into Carlos and Martins for a late lunch off the beach. What we found was a really good Mexican Restaurant with a great atmosphere. It's in a strip mall right off the beach but it was great. Large portions, great value on the island. The fish tacos were fresh and really great.

I can say nothing good about this 'restaurant'. It would be better if you shread your money. The food is horrible. Communication is poor. The music set the atmosphere of 3rd rate bar room. OK, I found something... I think,... oops no the beer is crappy also. Unless you like your beer barely chilled. Yep, shread your money.

This is the closest place to our Condo. The fajitas were ok, the chips and salsa were very very good. We intend to go back and try some other options. Service was good.

Received meal with ingredients I asked to be omitted. Server did not make any attempt to correct the situation. Responsibility for poor communication and poor outcome not taken. No compensation or remedy for this situation offered. Unhappy with the customer service. Food not worth a return trip.

We walked past here on a midweek night and it was deserted. However on Friday it was full of locals with loud music and as we fancied a margarita we chose to eat here. We enjoyed our drinks and the food was just average really. There was a delay with one out of four of our meals too. There are... More

My family and I had dinner here about a month ago and I must say that I as well as the rest of my family was quite impressed with the quality of the food and service. The Corona beer was quite cold and the ambience was good.
