Very nice lunch

Eating on the bottom of a pool is a first for me. I like the decor and the live piano jazz. Food was pretty good, good service. Very pleasant.

This cafe is in the back of the Lightner museum, in the place that once was the largest swimming pool in North America. The atmosphere is elegant, historic and beautiful. They had a guitar player gently strumming while we ate. The food was excellent, the wine delicious and the service spectacular. They even bring around an old photo of the... More

Made reservations and really enjoyed a leisurely lunch inside the Lightner museum. Small intimate setting complete with an extremely talented guitarist added to the creative, fresh lunch offerings. The artichoke pasta - Alcazar Giovanni- was to die for (although would have been happier if a small green salad were pared with the heavy entree). Hummus salad was fresh and tasty... More

With each visit to the area we do stop for lunch. The menu pretty much stays the same and the food is delicious. On this visit we came with a friend for her birthday. The server we had was attentive and proper. We do enjoy coming at least once per season but I would like to see them extend their... More

My sister and I took an impromptu visit to St. Augustine and were looking for a restaurant that was quiet and out of the way of tourists.(We had just gotten off of an annoying trolley ride). This was phenomenal. I had the asparagus panini and my sister had the club sandwich. I'm not a vegetable eater(no clue what possessed me... More

We heard about this restaurant from the Information Center in St. Augustine. You won't be disappointed they said and we weren't as it was the swimming pool of the former hotel, now Flagler Museum. Four stories high with gables soaring overhead it was awesome. Food was excellent as was the live guitarist playing at lunch. Their desserts were freshly made... More

Considering that the restaurant is on the floor of a century-old swimming pool, it's very elegant with good food. Only open for lunch, seems to serve mostly the city hall employees and visitors to the Lighter Museum.

We enjoyed lunch at the Cafe Alcazar a couple of weeks ago. It was fabulous! The ambiance alone made it perfect. Soft guitar playing, yummy food and very attentive wait staff. We love the museum and now also love the Cafe. What a unique experience to have lunch in what was once the deep end of this amazing pool! We'll... More

We went to the museum and decided to have lunch here after. It was great. The atmosphere is unsurpassed; there was live piano music; adjacent antique shops, and good food and service at a fair price. Next time we are in the ST Augustine area we will definitely eat at the Café Alcazar!!!

My girlfriend and I visited St. Augustine this past weekend and we hit Cafe Alcazar twice. We didn't initially plan on doing so, but the food was too good to not go back. We have eaten here a total of four times now. The location of the cafe is outstanding (an old swimming pool in a history-rich building) and the... More
