Arriving late at RDU and checking in at an airport-area motel, my wife & I were hungry, and expecting to have to settle for something far less than wonderful. So we were understandably surprised and delighted to find Carmen's a short walk away from our motel. I greatly enjoyed the Seafood Havanero and Platanos, and my wife said the Picadillo.was perfect for her. We only wished we were going to be in the area longer; we would have liked to go back to try other dishes. The service was fine, too. As we haven't been to Cuba and have only had Cuban fare in a few places, we can't speak authoritatively about "Cuban Food"; and maybe our enthusiasm was influenced by our low expectations; but I'm going to rate this as excellent in any case.

This place has good Cuban food. If you like Cuban food, you will like this place. I think my bill with tip was about $20 but worth it.

Grew up in Tampa eating Cuban/Spanish cuisine. We made a lot of it a home too. I always like finding the Cuban restaurants and I wasn't disappointed. The Sangria was great as was the food. My daughter had the Lechon Asado and it was delicious. A friend had the arroz con pollo (which I am very picky about) and it was good too. I had the palomilla steak with yucca and it was wonderful. The only thing missing was some Cuban bread!
The service was just a bit slow but they were very friendly and accomodating. I would definitely visit this place again!!

We were meeting a friend staying close to RDU so picked Carmen's because it was close and we wanted to try a different cuisine. We were pleased with the extensive menu selections, the ample portions and decent service. For main courses we had grouper and chicken dishes. They were excellent.
