Carlos and Marcia first met in 1984 at the Colorado Springs Antlers Hilton where they fell in love at first sight.
A match made in heaven, they shared the same hopes and dreams – including their desire to open their own restaurant. They worked towards this dream by gaining experience at several Colorado Springs dining establishments, learning the tricks of the trade and the value of excellent customer service.
For years, Marcia drove past a little spot on 21st Street. As time passed, she felt more and more drawn to it and was delighted when one day she saw a “For Lease” sign in the front window. Following her intuition and her heart, Marcia called the number on the sign and leased the site. On October 1, 2004, Marcia and Carlos saw their dream come true when they opened Carlos’ Bistro at 1025 South 21st Street in Colorado Springs. Since then, they have devoted their lives to providing their customers with personal and magical dining experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
