Colourful decor, friendly serving staff. Good menu. Carmen is on the main road close to everything. Very popular n gets very busy at night.

The food was good. It was a bit expensive, and the serving size was huge. (Mains + 2 sides) I wish they offered a smaller meal for a lower price. The service was amazing. The vibe was good. For some reason there was pokemon music playing in the background.

We ate here with a large group. Service was very friendly and the process are decent for such a tourist town. The food was all very local and was tasty. Sometimes the service is slow when it is busy.

We had lunch here during our Chile trip. We ate just one fourth and felt really bad about wasting the rest. I had the chicken breast special and my husband had the vegetarian lasagna. The food wasn't fresh, was too oily and cheesy, tasted ok. Service was good and they offered a free dessert (Some gelato) which was the only... More

Restaurants and hotels in San Pedro are usually modest. The service here is very good and the food tastes great! The price is a little above average, but Carmen deserves at least one visit. I ate here twice during my 5-day stay in Atacama.

We have one celiac and one lactose-intolerant daughters, so finding restaurants that will enthusiastically help us navigate the menu is sometimes a challenge. No such problem here -- we went back 3 times with a different server each time, and every one of them was personable, fun and very helpful. Food is standard fare, but restaurant is colorful and vibrant.

Our tour operator recommended this place as it is one the larger restaurants you don't need a reservation for. Spunky waitress and super quick service. They serve super fresh fruit juices but they are entire jugs 700mls! They should also warn you that portions are huge. Everything can be shared by 2 people. Our soups were tasteless. Salads that came... More

Came for lunch around 12:30 and there was a good crowd. We tried to find this restaurant at first on Calama street but it is no longer there. They relocated to the main street - Caracoles. It is around the same area as Adobe and La Estaka. Ordered a lunch special which was like a beef/pork stew for 5000 CLP.... More
