We have been to other Carolo's and I think we had better service in the others. I don't know if it is because this one is so close to working places but they were in such a hurry. I felt like they wanted us to leave quickly. Never the less the food was extraordinary like in the other places. It... More

After a Monday afternoon at Museo Soumaya, our large family group was looking for an inexpensive dinner spot. We found Carolo on TripAdvisor. "Inexpensive, family-friendly, Mediterranean food. Sounds great!" The restaurant was practically empty except for us, but they seemed hesitant to welcome us (4 adults, 4 kids, and a baby). It was definitely a more formal and expensive restaurant...

Together with Loma Linda, I'd rate this the best option at Plaza Carso. Nice setting particularly at the open windows, great seafood, especially Octopus and I think their breads are truly excellent

Food was very good. Great service, good atmosphere. 5 different items from the menu not available, talking to friends they've experienced that. Chef needs to plan better the supply of food.

When it first opened a couple of years back it was really nice. This place was my favorite source for a French Dip (roast beef sandwich). The service nowadays is not what it used to be and the main dishes are not prepared with the same passion as before. i.e. A Marguerita pizza served with a giant basil leave, 3... More

I had a business meeting at Carolo. We spent a good time having a friendly talk. The environment was pleasant however the food was not a huge surprise. It was just good but not enough.
