As others have said, it is tucked away between and behind some shops. Friendly staff Only needed a cold drink and no food so will go back one evening.

This little gem is hidden behind the lovely row of colourful shops near the supermarket. We had breakfast and lunch here. We tried to do dinner but it's only open for dinner on Tuesday and Thursday so book early. The staff are lovely and the food is very good. I had the full English breakfast and while it wasn't farmhouse... More

Went here for the tapas night which is just Tuesday and Thursday and what a good fun night it is with good food and great entertainment. If you want to go make sure you book as it is nearly always full.

Very good location in the chattel village. Good lunch menu - various open sandwiches. Recommend the flying fish sandwich - well cooked. Service can be a bit slow.

A lovely night. Great food, excellent band, lovely staff. One of the best nights of our holiday. Please see my review of Carizma on the hill. Different offering but well worth a visit.

Hidden away from the main road among the brightly painted gift shops of Chattel Village we came across Cafe Carizma. We popped in for a light lunch and were not disappointed. I can highly recommend their local fish cakes and their macaroni pie was the best we tasted during our stay. The rum punch is made fresh on the premises... More

Cafe Carizma is a great oasis in Holetown for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Staff is great and choices are many, from smoothies, the full English Breakfast, to great lunches and dinners. Don't miss 1359 playing at night, be sure to make a reservation at least a few days in advance to see the band.

Thank HavanaClub11
