We went back in March and it was closed for remodeling. Bummer... Sure hope it reopens by next winter. We were very disappointed as we had guests visiting and had been talking about it for months.

I am not sure when they plan on the reopening, but are in the middle of a renovation project during this slow time of year. The place is in a super location around the corner from the Hampton Inn. Based on all of the great reviews, I am so sad that we did not get to taste the food on... More

Camelia Cafe is simply one of the best restaurants we've experienced. While not cheap, their consistent delivery of gourmet food paired with an excellent wine list is second to none. While definitely a "fine dining" establishment, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. This is our "special occasion" destination for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. It should be yours too!

This was our first meal & we were blown away by the reviews!!!! The atmosphere was great & can't wait for warm weather to dine outside! The service was impeccable w/ our waiter suggesting a great wine to accompany our meal. We luv beer and were disappointed to see only 2 options... Both from microbrewery in the N.E. Unfortunately, the... More

Always good, tomatoe and watermelon salads always please. Excellent service at the bar and if weather cooperates, set outside. But be aware of the limited space (4 max).

The streets have all the trees dressed in white lights. The ambience is exciting and a bit noisier than I like, but the food is excellent. Each meal was prepared to perfection. I had the venison and it was extremely tender. The service was excellent.

I've been here twice now, once for a business dinner then back to treat the wife. Both times the meal was wonderful! Very educated and professional service. Loved the stuffed Quail and the Duck Breast with mushroom risotto! The flavors here are some of the best I've ever tasted! I was told the chef was awarded "Best Chef's of America"... More

We finally found a place in coastal Alabama that checked all the boxes for a great dinner. Tired of the greasy, run-of-the-mill places claiming to offer a great dining experience, we checked all the reviews and drove to Camellia in Fairhope ... the best dining decision we've made. While a little early for our reservation, we were warmly welcomed and... More
