    Carambola

    Has anyone heard anything about the relatively new restaurant Carambola at the Paradise Villas? I think its where Le Petit used to be.

    Thanks Amy - I should have looked their first but I was being lazy!

    What great reviews it has received. Where we are staying at La Cabana we'll have to give it a try.

    We ate there last Feb. when we were staying at Paradise Beach Villas. They had only been open a few weeks. We thought that the food and the service were both very good. I'm sure we'll eat there again on our next trip.

    Maybe I'm overly fussy but the peanut soup was not served in a mashed plantain bowl as the menu says or in a bread bowl as it said back then. I got mine in a ceramic bowl. I ordered the tempura shrimp. I got batter dipped and fried shrimp but it was not even close to the light, crisp, airy tempura batter I expected.

    I've heard many raves for the breakfast.

    We were really hoping it would be a great experience as it's right there where we stay.

    That's exactly why I was thinking about giving it a try. Hmmm....what to do.

    Give it a try. I was just expressing my opinion. Others like the place. You may too.
