A Fantastic Choice

We decided to walk down the street upon our arrival and saw many restaurants on the way but the one that piqued our interest was advertising fresh Florida Seafood and Steakhouse.

After a full day of sightseeing my friends and I stopped here because we wanted to have dinner outside. Wait staff was friendly, efficient and not intrusive. Enjoyed one of the better margaritas I 've had in a long time! Food was delicious and the beautiful sunset view was an added treat.

We were in Mt.Dora to attend the "Rat Pack" tribute show at the Community Centre and went to Pisces Rising for a light meal prior to the show. The atmosphere was excellent and the view overlooking Lake Dora was a bonus. We were served by a very gracious waitress and waiter. The Tomato Basil Bisque was excellent as were the... More

Had lunch today with friends and found nothing exciting about the service or the meals. I had the spinach salad and saw none of the bacon that was suppose to be there and maybe 5 little squares of pear.. a few nuts hidden under one of the spinach leaves..little dressing or blue cheese. The shrimp I ordered (5 to the... More

Great view. Lovely patio. About my ratings: In an effort to compare apples to apples, my ratings compare establishments within thirty minutes travel of each-other. It makes no sense whatsoever to give five stars to a top Paris restaurant or hotel and then only give three stars to the very best hotel or restaurant on a small island simply because... More

My husband, my mother and I stopped in Mount Dora for dinner and found Pisces Rising the best paella ever great flavor. Excellent services and great drinks. The key lime mousses and the cheeses cake was delicious! Great meal! We will certainly return. Thank Chef Alex for your great menu , we exited for your next menu.

My husband, son (3) and I stopped in Mount Dora for lunch and found Pisces Rising. A pleasant surprise indeed! The menu had an appropriate amount of creativity to support the prices. The ingredients used were fresh. Very nice wine and beer selection. The view added to the overall experience a touch of "slow down and enjoy life for a... More

We visited this restaurant during an exceedingly busy weekend yet the service was wonderful and the food delivered to our table quickly. My pear and fig salad was quite tasty and my husband's seafood paella was the best he had ever eaten! It had an immense amount of seafood and was delicious! We will certainly return.

We sat inside at the bar of this great, old building. We sat outside and listened to live music. The restaurant is just feet from the shore of Lake Dora in the thriving, fun town of Mt. Dora. There is one better restaurant in town, but you cannot beat this location. The food and drink were very enjoyable. It's pretty... More
