Carmen’s restaurant is well designed to cater for family celebrations as well as a romantic night out. The food is delicious and consistently satisfying with wonderful eye appeal and sensational flavours that you’ll want to savour. The wine list has reasonably priced wines well matched...to the menu. We had bed and dinner package which was amazing value. Great service, food was served without delay and staff were attentive and not pretend friends. Had a three night stay and ate each night, with consistently excellent experience on every occasion. A great night out you can rely on, atmosphere, food staff and value.More

No wonder it's rated number 1 in Tamworth. Both meals were just perfect and reminded us of how good Lygon Street was 20 years ago. The staff are super pleasant and eager to please. You must book as it was full on a Tuesday night...put...it on your bucket list.More

We enjoyed a wonderful luncheon on Mother's Day. The menu was set, but there were choices within the set. The food was great and the service excellent considering that 270 patrons were served that day.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch with family at Carmen's and the quality of food and presentation continues to excel. The lunchtime special menu has a good variety of choices and is priced very reasonably. I enjoyed Carmen's Chicken Parmigiana and it never fails to satisfy....I always go for the gelato dessert to finish off a very pleasant lunch experience. Thank you again Carmen and your wonderful staff!More

Food here was delicious and the service excellent. They even provided a special heater to make sure we were warm enough on the covered area.

I am glad I had booked in advance as the restaurant was full when we arrived, and it is easy to understand why: the food is absolutely delicious, and the service super friendly. It was such a nice start to our holiday, we have already...recommended the place to our friends and will be back for sure when in Tamworth!More
