The food is Devine! Our server Tony was unforgettable! He really guided us on what to order and even let us know if we were ordering too much! My husband and I have never been so well cared for in a restaurant. I have dined in many places around this world. The Goblin is now one of my very favorites.

This was recommended to us by friends. We opted for lunch because it is a little pricey for us, but the food is amazing. We ordered burgers with an onion jam and it was fantastic! Next time we will just plan a larger budget so we can try their steak!

This was our first visit to Mt. Dora (a very cute town with many retail shops, antique stores, gift stores, sweets, and restaurants galore. Who knew this unique old Historic area had so much to enjoy. The most pleasing part was the recommendation to us that we try

Another fantastic lunch at Goblin Market! Sat in the rear outdoor courtyard which is cool with all of the foliage blocking out the sun. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, I couldn't ask for anything more. Never a disappointment dining here, simply the best restaurant in Mount Dora!

We ate lunch here because we heard it was very good. We were a party of twelve so we tried a lot of things. The French Onion soup was amazing, so was the crab bisque. No one in our group was disappointed. The decor is really unusual and cozy. Highly recommend it, bit it is pricey. If you want to... More

Wonderful place with unique food, great wine list and a really cool garden patio seating. The Latin restaurant next door added a song and show. Highly recommended.

We stopped for lunch at the Goblin Market. It was recommended to us by several shop owners. It lived up to its' recommendation. We sat outside in a back courtyard type setting among the tropical plants and trees. Our waiter was excellent and so was the food. A must-try in Mt. Dora. (We all enjoyed it so much, we made...
