“Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We ate here three times during our five day stay. Obviously we enjoyed it very much. Started with dinner, couple of days later had lunch and breakfast on our last day.
Good food at a great price point and easy location. Friendly service. All six of us were given tequila shots for 'dessert' on our dinner visit!
Nice, breezy table on the street made for comfortable meals.

“Excellent Food and Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Carboncito's lived up to my high expectations with great food at a very good value, especially given it's proximity to the higher priced 5th Avenue area. Service was very friendly and efficient. We had a sampling of tacos and a pan seared fish with a light garlic butter sauce. Both were outstanding values.
