Our Best Night In Florida!

We were all through Florida on our summer vacation, and enjoyed Cuban, Columbian, and fresh seafood. But on our last night in St. Augustine we found a truly hidden gem - the King's Bistro. We walked into this small place hearing a beautiful vocal performance, and were seated as the show went on... read more

Food was wonderful, steak, stuffed scallop, vegetables, potatoes, and salad. Owners came out to inquire about our experience, felt welcome and the atmosphere was very homey. Judy's singing rivaled anything on Broadway!

Tiny and open only weekends, so definitely call for reservations. Mike the convivial chef/owner sits and describes in detail the possible fare. His wife Judy serves and sings karaoke which sounds tacky but she sings beautifully and somehow it works. Besides the campy intimacy, the food was superb, as good as anywhere in town. The fish and shrimp oskar was... More

A small place only a few blocks from the tourist attractions and San Sebastion winery. You will wait a bit for your food as there is only one chef and one hostess/waitress who is the owner but not overly long. We were there for lunch and the soup and sandwhich were excellent. I didn't care for the potato salad that... More

We were told of this restaurant by a friend. And "warned" about looks of building and location. Not to fear...warm greeting, great food, fabulous service. Recommend this to all!!

My family went to Kings Bistro today and had a terrific lunch! My husband had the Grouper Reuben Sandwich for the fourth time! He said it is so consistently delicious! The fish is always moist and perfectly seasoned. My daughter and I both had the Steak Sandwich. The meat was so tender it could melt in your mouth. We both... More

I cannot believe there are so many good reviews for this restaurant on here. I went here for lunch one day with two of my girl friends and we had a terrible experience. the food was definitely nothing to rave about. My steak sandwich was greasy and upset my stomach, it also came with potato salad that was topped with... More

The building is not much to look at on the outside, but the atmosphere inside is great. Very friendly staff, and the food was amazing. We used a coupon from restaurants.com to save $25 on our bill.

Been here multiple times, always enjoy it--small, selected menu--great fish & pork. Its a fun spot to take out of town visitors, as its small house (and micro kitchen) setting is a bit unique in St. Aug. I also enjoy the BYOB (we always bring wine)--I noticed others had brought martinis! ;-)

I absolutely rate all restaurants on their overall value. This charming place definitely rates a 5 in my opinion. I took some of my friends visiting from out of town. I had a coupon, and that is what led us there. We were a party of four, two 45 year olds, a 23 year old and a 20 year old.... More
