We headed for a visit to Mt. Dora just to relax and stroll around; we were recommended to go to The Goblin Market Restaurant for lunch; We had previously seen this when we visited during a craft show but the wait was so long, we skipped it. Sorry we did. The food was out of this world and the atmosphere... More

Met a friend here for lunch and it was our visit to Mount Dora. We had lunch upstairs and very much enjoyed it! Our server was wonderful and very patient as we chatted for a long time before ordering. I loved my potato crusted flounder Caesar salad. Just a lovely afternoon - not rushed at all. Plan to return for... More

There is a difference between fine dining and everything else. If you forget, the Goblin Market will remind you. Look at their website to preview the menu - I got so hungry just reading the many, many delicious descriptions that I could barely wait for my birthday. You might have guessed that the Goblin is a little pricey, but it... More

Tucked away on a side street in the village of Mt. Dora, the Goblin Market Restaurant is a hidden gem well worth seeking out. From the moment you enter through the secret garden door and emerge into the intimate book-lined rooms, you will feel like the treasured guest of friends who just happen to be four star chefs. Although our... More

We ALMOST missed it; found out about it from the piano player at the Lakeside Inn. OMG! I had flounder baked with a panko coating. My husband had a shrimp & scallop & capers over angel hair with prosciutto and artichoke hearts. Access is in an alley. ASK for directions!

Came here for dinner while shopping in Mt. Dora, I strongly suggest you call at least one day ahead for reservations. The entire experience was wonderful, meal was fabulous, wish we lived closer so I could come back more often. We stopped by for lunch the next day on our way out of town and WOW did not disappoint.

The Goblin Market has an amazing fresh menu with new specials and selections every time we dine here. This time I had the fresh blackened chicken in a wrap with shoestring potatoes in a special herb dipping sauce. My husband had the tomato and Gouda soup and the grilled fish special. Everything is to die for! Next time we hop... More

Really good dinner in little Mt. Dora! The service was excellent, and the food was delicious! The dishes had an unusual twist...and were obviously not mass produced! Really delicious!
