The Goblin Market is our "go to" restaurant when looking for a great meal in a wonderful atmosphere. Having dined many times for special occasions and often for lunch, I have never been disappointed! The staff is always friendly and attentive and the menu is full of creative dishes cooked to perfection. The Tempura Dipped Artichoke Hearts are a must!

We recently shared a lunch with friends at Goblin Market, sitting inside on a blistering hot day. Our friends enjoyed their crab cake and potato crusted flounder salad, while my husband and I ventured to the other end of the calorie spectrum with delicious lunches of a lamb burger with green harissa and feta aoli and a three cheddar (Tillamook,...

We shared a table with our friends while on a Motorcycle trip. The food was excellent, having had an Elk special. Perfectly done. The service was also quite complete, and courteous.

Always a surprise and pleasure to find such a nice place...especially in a tourist town like Mount Adorable! She had a yummy and creative salad- fresh and popping with flavor. I had the daily sandwich special- peanut butter, bacon, goat cheese, and marmalade. .. surprisingly delicious! Service was attentive and professional. We will be back.

We went to The Goblin Market for Father's Day late lunch. We were seated upstairs in a quaint room and our server Sarah (Sara with an H) was very attentive and handled our large rowdy bunch with ease! The lunch menu has something for everyone. We had some restrictive diet requests that were not a problem. All the food looked... More

Simply put, the best place to eat in Mount Dora and the surrounding area. We have been here many times both for lunch and dinner, the food is imaginative, fresh ingredients and perfectly cooked. The little outdoor courtyard is cool and relaxing, even on a hot day. Highly recommended!

We visit restaurants throughout this area for most of our meals. Last evening, celebrating two birthdays, four or us decided to eat at the Goblin Market. What a mistake. This long time establishment which attempts to market itself as a "fine dining" does a very poor job. If you enjoy sitting so close to your neighbors that you not only... More

WOW! We had been in downtown Mt. Dora and asked one of the shopkeepers to recommend a good place for dinner. First choice was The Goblins Market. We were not disappointed. From the moment we entered we were impressed. Great atmosphere and Ally was very attentive, without being overbearing. We had the deep fried stuffed artichokes, which "fabulous", on their... More

Sometimes it's fun to read the Negative Reviews just to see what people can possibly say. But, when you have "684" 'Positive' reviews vs. "38" 'Terrible' & 'Poor' (-5.5%) it says a lot about one, really Fine Restaurant... The Goblins Market. We have eaten here many times over the last 16 years and it's always outstanding. This beautiful, little restaurant... More

I've been here twice and sat outside both times. I love the outside area because it's private and different. The inside seems too dark and old looking. Both times the food has been very good, however they are on the pricy side. Also the pathway leading up to the front door is very cute but then the front door entry... More
