Group Bookings & Functions

Host your next Get-together or Event with Carmen

We understand that every group event is special and unique. So we offer options, to customise each booking to your own requirements and preferences.


What are the options for Group Bookings?

Choose a Seated Dinner - from 6 to 28 guests (maximum at One Table) in the restaurant,  or up to 45 guests over 3 or 4 tables. For a Private Function we can seat up to 60 guests.

Or opt for a Mix and Mingle Gathering in the semi-private Havana Room  - for 25 to 60 guests, offering fingerfood Platters and Drinks. Please enquire using the form below, and we'll look after all the details!


What are your Group Menus like? 

Our set group menus are a great way to eat at Carmen Jones. Sharing Feasts of 'Rolling Tapas', or a less casual 'Shared Tapas/ Own Main' dinner are our 2 styles of menu. Both of these come with 2 menu variations to choose from, and 2 price points (for two or three courses). To see our current set menus please just enquire using the form below, and we'll email them right over to you. Choosing a set menu means you know everything will flow as it should, and how much the food will cost. We'll take care of everything, and you and your guests can get on with catching up and enjoying yourselves.


Do we have to have a Set Menu?

 For groups between 6 and 18 people, you may also choose to just order on the night, from our regular menu. For groups of 18 - 24 people we do recommend one of our group menu options, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. For groups of  more than 24 people a set menu is required. We love to customise each occasion to suit what works best for you - please don't hesitate to  get in touch. We're also happy to meet up at the restaurant  and have a chat about what you have in mind.
