For two weeks we've staid in Fairhope and tried a couple of restaurants but kept going here. Very friendly staff and great food. An absolute recommendation!

In Fairhope, Camellia Cafe is more of a dining occasion because so many places are very casual and small. Very charming room, nice menu selections, and the food was very good. Every disch that walked by looked enticing. The total experience was a delightful evening.

A local fisherman recommended this restaurant to us... and it was over the top amazing. For a small town... incredible menu...took us forever to settle on one thing! Great wine list! And well educated servers...they were eager to educate us about the origins of their offerings, as well as make great suggestions. There were 6 of us, each ordering something... More

This small, quaint, elegant restaurant has all you would expect in a fine dining setting....yummy food, great atmosphere and first class service! We feel like the loudness can be overcome....just dine at 5:30 or 6:00! It was perfect for conversation, attentive wait staff, and prompt service. Can't wait to enjoy again!

Had reservations on a Wednesday night and thank goodness, they had to turn people away at 6:30 pm! Not a large restaurant but love the clean look and the food was great. Few mix ups in kitchen with food coming out at different times and mixing up our table and one next to us but easy to overlook when they... More

Anniversary date for us and it was so good. There is a "but" however...but is was so noisy and loud you could not have a very good conversation. Service was good, and the best part was the food! I had the grilled lamb chop and it was the best I've ever eaten. The tomato stack was delicious! Expensive but worth... More

We recently dined here for the second time in six months. Decor is stark and includes interesting art in a long, narrow dining room. Noise level was high. Aaron was our waiter at both meals and was knowledgable about the menu but somewhat detached. Husband started with a gin and tonic and I tried the Cafe's signature cocktail: too pink... More

We ate at the Camellia Cafe last Thursday evening. I had a Mahi Mahi seafood dish in a lemon sauce that was wonderful one of the best I've had. We each had a thoroughly delicious salad, and instead of an entree, my spouse chose two appetizers which she really enjoyed. The topper was a bread pudding with a cream and... More
