We enjoyed our afternoon tea, it was a great selection. There were 4 of us & All of us commented that whoever made the sandwiches & quiche was just a tad heavy handed with the chutney. The music/singer set for a really good atmosphere. Down side was our waiter, he was somewhat attentive to begin with, albeit a bit slow but when he comes over & you show him on the drinks menu which cocktail teapot you’d like to order then he just forgets it was a bit disappointing. We left then had cocktails somewhere else in town instead.

I had a marvellous day at the Carmelite on Sunday. Lovely lunch and music with Dom Pipkin. Most enjoyable and I would thoroughly recommend this experience.

The lunch menu was attractive with not so run of the mill options. Well cooked and enjoyable experience. Nice ambiance with tables feeling private and not crammed. Service was attentive. Much improved over a year ago.

It was an experience I wouldn’t like to repeat. Our booking was lost thankfully I had confirmation on my phone to prove I had booked it but their paper copy was out of date. I had stated in my booking that I had a nut intolerance and this was such an issue when we arrived. I explained that it’s not a severe allergy just that I couldn’t eat a lot of whole nuts so traces were fine. The waitress did not listen to a word I said as when the food eventually arrived I was given a completely different selection from my friend none of which were half as appealing. All gluten free, dairy free,sugar free taste free! A little excessive. I appreciate allergies are a worry but I did explain what I could eat. They gave us one tea cup the other was taken away before we were given it because it was dirty. Then waited approximately 15 mins for anything to arrive. After the food and fizz came it was about about 10 minutes before the tea arrived and I had to ask for a cup. It was not busy at the time but another table next to us were an old couple and asked if their food was ready. The response the waitress gave them was atrocious. Telling them to be patient and that it takes time to get things ready. They had been waiting for ages as they arrived at the same time as us and we were almost finished before their food came out. Was really looking forward to this day with my best friend and it’s such a shame the service let it down.

Myself and a friend bought the voucher from Carmelitea website, 2 courses for 2 and a bottle of wine for £29. Bargain we thought. On arrival we realised we didn't have to have booked as it was pretty empty, only 1 other table eating. Anyway that didn't put us off. Servers were warm and welcoming and showed us to a booth. We ordered our 2 courses with bottle of rose wine and that arrived promptly followed by the starters starters were fine and we thought what a deal we had got, roll on our mains which we both picked macaroni. That's where the big let down was. the server came with the plates warning us to be careful as the bowls with the macaroni was hot, he was right to as they were burning but the macaroni it's self was stone cold. No-one came till a good bit after to see if everything was ok, by that point myself and my friend had eaten 1 slice of garlic bread from the side and left petty much all the macaroni. When we mentioned it to the server he was lovely and concerned. He came back states the chef had said sorry, that's it. No offer of a free drink, even a dessert to fill us up a little So we both left still pretty hungry. Would not recommend

The food is amazing as is the value for money however the restaurant is solely let down by the staff and service, they are not attentive, we were left standing for around 10 minutes with no one in site to take us to our table. We then waited another 10 for our drinks and one was missing, there was a huge gap in between our starters and mains coming and an overall long wait for the food which is strange as they weren't busy at all. The pints we had ordered came twice flat with no top and we had to put these back and ask for new ones. This could be a really successful place if the right staff were employed or they had some training.

My husband and I had an intimate dinner with 18 friends and family as a wedding reception. They decorated the room as I asked, the food was delicious even, my picky Latin American family was impressed. The staff was incredible or even coordinator was extremely helpful. She met with us even when it was past her time to be at work. We absolutely recommend it, not only for big events but for supper with friend/family.

It was a fantastic night with the Robbie Williams tribute act(Brad), he was fantastic, the food was lovely, well cooked and great presentation, the wine with our meals was one of the best wines I have tasted, not dry or acidic at all, lovely and sweet, the service was excellent, our waiter(male, short dark hair, medium build) was excellent, lovely comfy chairs, great atmosphere and friendly people, will definitely be coming again.

The only complaint we had was while Millie had an excellent voice where we were seated it was too loud for us to have a conversation with anyone at the table other than the person next to us. I have booked the Gary Barlow Tribute Night and maybe we could be seated at a different place. Thank you Geraldine Comerford.

Another excellent meal my wife's steak was tender and cooked perfectly, while my choice was not available but the chef provided an alternative which was probably as good if not better. The best restaurant in Aberdeen for a carnivore.
