Casa Carmen
#1
This restaurant opened recently in the new centre opposite the bus station/Esmeralda complex.
Spanish by name and Spanish/Italian from the menu.
We went there for a late lunch yesterday and sat outside, more fool us as there is no shade at present. Having said that they only opened at the weekend and a large parasol was delivered as we sat there.
We don't speak much Spanish yet, but it is nice to be answered in Spanish when we do order in the native tongue (or is the native tongue in Caleta English).
Prices were reasonable to average for Caleta and as we wanted a cheapish meal, plumped for the Lasagna (€6) and Tagliatelle €7.50) which we shared as we are wont to do. The tagliatelle was delicious (prawn and veg with a little soy sauce). I wasn't so keen on the lasagna as the sauce was like plain tomato soup (which I am not a huge fan of) but Jill enjoyed it. Desserts are only €3 so it would be rude not to try one, even if we were both stuffed. So we shared a cheescake, not huge but enough. It was OK but nothing to **** out about (my favourite cheesecakes are at Amici Oasi and Mirador de Sotavento).
Bread with alioli and mojo was included, a jarra was €2.50 and a red wine (individual bottle) was €1.80 which were reasonable prices. All in all enjoyable, except no shade, but not sure if we would be tempted back, although that tagliatelle was nice......
