Halibut Tacos

The Halibut Tacos are a must try! They are a a mouthful of flaky, moist, flavorful deliciousness! Paired with a white rice and beans with a indescribable flavor of goodness! I highly recommend this dish ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

Chicken Burrito

Decided to take my sis & bro-in-law to dinner to thank them for having us! My son suggested "Carmelita's" which was only 10 minutes from where they lived. Food was amazing, service was excellent, outside by the lake was very nice! What a great place, and now my sis is happy she knows about it now and will be going back!

Organic Chicken Quesadilla

Delicious! The staff was super attentive and the food got the spot. Food came out in a timely manner and we didn't have to wait too long for a table to become available. It also helped that our waiter looked like Tom Holland and was cute. Will definitely be going back!

Charred Quesadilla Salad

So delicious. I added shrimp and it was a perfect salad! I would say though that the dressing was a little on the heavy side, less dressing would be better

Carmelita's Ribeye Tacos

I discovered this restaurant about a month ago and have already been back four times. I have tried several different items on the menu and have not once been disappointed. I absolutely love the Fresh Blackberry Margarita. In fact, I think I will go back again tonight! The service is outstanding.

Chile Relleno

Absolutely gourmet! Whoever thought of putting two of my favorite dishes together is a genius!! Chili Relleno stuffed with Carnitas is perfection. Choose the corn for your side—it's a must! Add guacamole for a starter and a couple of margaritas and you've found your new favorite Mexican restaurant. And...the view of the lake tops off the experience. Enjoy!!!

Corn Mushroom and Poblano Tacos

This is my favorite vegetarian dish at Carmelitas. The mushrooms are so earthy, juicy, and satisfying in the tacos - they always hit the spot. Unlike other Mexican cuisine restaurants, Carmelitas isn't laden in salt and grease; the chef really lets the quality of ingredients shine in each dish resulting in everything from the rice, to the beans, to the excellent salsa tasting like a delicacy. One word of caution for vegetarians - ask for the whole beans with your dish as the refried black beans (and the tasty bean dip my husband raves about) are not vegetarian. The servers are so accommodating and the lakefront view can't be beat in town.

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Unbelievable freshness with the perfect balance of flavors...and perfect shrimp-to-crab ratio. Nothing more to say than: To. Die. For. Chips, refried black beans and tortilla chips are so phenomenally addicting that I bring a whole order to take home every time I'm here. I dare you to NOT do the same!!

Amazing margaritas! My favorite is the blackberry margarita but i have to admit, it's hard to pick one since all their margaritas are delicious. The food is fresh and flavorful. Can't beat the beautiful view of the lake. The best Mexican restaurant in south OC by far.

Short Rib Enchiladas

These are the best enchiladas I have ever had! You only need two because they are so rich and decadent. The texture of the crispy onions on top perfectly complemented the creamy sauce. Not only are the enchiladas amazing, but the rice that comes with them was fantastic. I don't normally touch the rice at Mexican restaurants - it's just filler to me. But this rice was garlicky goodness.

Halibut Tacos

If you love fish tacos you want to be sure to get Carmelita's Halibut Tacos! These are the perfect fish tacos. Superb quality fish, and the perfect combination of cabbage and fresh lime sauce makes this the perfect taco! In fact, I would say that you have not had a fish taco until you have had the Halibut Tacos from Carmelita's. And be sure to invite a friend that loves fish tacos. They will rave over these!

Halibut Tacos

My husband and I love Carmelita's food, atmosphere, and staff. The food is consistently delicious, the margarita's are amazing, and the employees are always welcoming. We like to go on a Sunday afternoon and sit out on the patio. We share the halibut tacos and couple margaritas. It's a great way to end the weekend!

Seafood Trio

I've eaten everything in the menu, but my favorite is the seafood tacos. Sometimes I just want shrimp and they gladly change the dish for me. Everyone is so nice there. And the Margaritas are the best in town! Favorite is the blackberry margarita with tajin 😊
