Excellent food and service once we finally found the entrance at the back of the Lightner Museum. My delicious Caprese salad was not large but just what I wanted; the portion sizes of my friends' meals (mostly sandwiches) were quite generous.

We met a couple on our Queen Victoria cruise through the Panama Canal who invited us to visit them in St. Augustine. So we decided to meet at the Café Alcazar. What an elegant setting for a restaurant, it was like taking a step back in time. The Alcazar hotel was built in 1888 by Henry Flagler. The restaurant is... More

My wife and I had lunch there. Her pasta with shrimp was exceptionally well done. My was okay, but what can you say about Greek salad? The place was very well decorated and the service, while not exceptional, was certainly adequate. This is one of those places that you get a next or have a star.

Neat History! when we were told it used to be a pool we knew we had to eat there, it's an amazing feel, just to think about how people used to live there and the type of life they lived. My boyfriend I shared an appetizer and a meal it was more than enough, and all the food was amazing!
