    Quinta Del Carmen

    4-21-2015

    What a gem! Thank you to all who recommended this lovely restaurant, especially cindyo. I picked this for my birthday celebration and was very happy I did. The home and the property have been beautifully restored and the courtyard where you eat is just wonderful. Service is perfectly timed and always attentive but not overbearing.

    I started off my birthday dinner with a special drink that they call the Quinta Royal. It is strawberry and champagne, very tasty and pretty too!

    For my appetizer I chose the Cheese Croquettes which come with a raspberry coulis and mixed greens and was very good. Being the cheese lover that I am, I plan to try the Goat Cheese Fritters next time.

    My husband chose the Calamari for his appetizer. It also comes with a mixed green salad and while he found it very good, he would have liked for the breading to be a little lighter so that he could appreciate the calamari a little more.

    Quinta Del Carmen Part 2

    As my main dish I chose the Grouper, Shrimp and Salmon which comes atop mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. It is served with a slight sweet white wine sauce and two small mounds of goat cheese and as much as I LOVE goat cheese, I could have done without on this dish but that is just my particular taste. It was overall a very tasty entrée which I enjoyed very much.

    The husband picked the Cajun Rib Eye and absolutely loved it. The size of this steak was very impressive.

    We were too stuffed to even contemplate anything other than some espressos after our meal but the waitress had overheard us talking about my birthday and surprised me with a piece of their chocolate tarte with a huge sparkler. My husband did not plan this at all. It really was a spur of the moment decision by restaurant staff in an attempt to make my day special and they succeeded! The chocolate tarte was really, really good.

    I highly recommend that you all try this relatively new restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely, the food is very, very good and the service is outstanding!

    You are correct! I am sure it will be difficult to get reservations in the near future.
