The ambience was unique as we sat at the bottom of the old swimming pool. One could feel the gradual slope of the shallow end of the pool to the deep end. The food was wonderful and the service good. What a grand experience!

Wonderful end to a lovely visit to the museum. Snapper special and the Shrimp Giovanni awesome. Don't miss the salted Carmel cheese cake! Wait staff was professional & friendly.

Second time that I visit the Café Alcazar located within The Lightner Museum and where it used to be an underground olympic swimming pool decades ago. This was one of the most beautiful hotels of that era, The Alcazar Hotel, designed and built by Henry M. Flagler. The Café Alcazar is very quaint, historic, has little antique shops all around...

My friend and I had lunch here after visiting the Lightner Museum. It was interesting just to be in the former swimming pool of the Alcazar Hotel. A creative use of the space! The menu had plenty of choices, and I enjoyed the combo of French onion soup and curried chicken salad sandwich. Service was excellent, and prices moderate.

This was a really neat dining experience that I had with my mom knowing that it used to be former swimming pool knowing that it was part of the former Alcazar Hotel. They are only open for lunch, but they had a good selection on their menu. We had gone on a weekday and it wasn't super busy, but we... More

I had my favorite, East Meets West, which is a wonderful curry chicken salad surrounded by seasonal fruits and veggies.

This is located inside the Lightner Museum, although you can access the restaurant without going into the museum itself. The restaurant is built inside the old hotel "swimming pool" but don't let that turn you off, this is not like any swimming pool you have probably ever seen. Our meal was excellent, and the service with great. And the environment... More

Went there for lunch after strolling through the Lightner Museum. Lunch was good but not great - you gotta go there once to see the old hotel pool (in which this restaurant is located). We live in this county - i.e., not tourists. I noticed on this St. Augustine visit that some local Jacksonville favorites are now on the north... More
