We had never visited Carmelinda's until recently, after reading some of the great reviews it has had. We were not disappointed! We split the fish and chips and the chicken parmesan. Everything was magnificent. Huge portions, best meals we have had in Kingston for ages. The prices are unbelievably reasonable. It is a true Ma and Pa's type of establishment,... More

I have not been to this restaurant in ages, and today it was a let's try! Always great! Definitely a great menu, lunch specials, a full breakfast menu (until 11), then a breakfast still available, licensed, wraps, burgers, pasta, seafood, and lots more.

Everything at Carmelindas is good. Many items a great! Try their fish, chicken, veal, pasta or whatever else takes your fancy. You won't be disappointed & will probably have left-overs for lunch the next day!

This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The four of us had wonderful meals that we all enjoyed including the liver entree, the chicken souvlaki, shrimp dinner and the Salisbury steak. In addition we had the bruschetta as an appie and it was delicious. Great little dinner with friendly staff. Great value!

Here is another of our favourite breakfast haunts, which we visit several times a year with our Grumpy Old Men's Breakfast Club. The food is always excellent, service is top-notch without being intrusive, and prices are very reasonable indeed.

The menu is large with lots of options. It's always been delicious but on every visit we wait a long time for food (minimum 30-35 minutes) and with a 3 year old we just can't wait that long. Liver is yummy but they always put gravy on my potatoes when I ask them not to!

Have only been there for lunch but was always delicious. The only negative is it is a bit slow in getting food but when it comes was worth the wait. It is always hot and good.
