We have visited the Goblin Market twice and each time it was wonderful. We have tried a variety of their dishes and each one was excellent. Be prepared for a wait as this establishment is very popular.

I have only been to Mount Dora twice and twice I have gone out of my way to eat here. The whole downtown area was under construction, but we slogged through the dust and dirt because this place is worth it! The crab bisque was my starter and I ate every delicious drop. Both my boyfriend and I ordered steak... More

This place is hard to find and parking is difficult as it is for most of the downtown Mount Dora restaurants... but once you find it and enter the front door, you are in a wonderland of culinary delights and fine service! You leave the hectic world behind and experience tranquility and satisfaction for the mind, body and senses. The... More

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!
