Where else can you Dinner in an Opulant Pool

The empty pool was amazing in it's self. The wealthy people that might have swam here. The resturante staff were wonderful. The food outstanding. We were very glad we finally got the change to eat here.

This was my 4th trip to St Augustine and each time I really wanted to try this restaurant but never seemed to fit it in until now. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table because they were very busy. They do take reservations so next time I would make one. My daughter had a caesar salad which she... More

Seems to be more of a tourist stop. Always had great food but last few times very disappointing! Today the East Meet Wests chicken Salad had about 1/3 cup of Chicken salad, dried out melon with hard rind for $15 not worth it for lunch!

Located in a once historic hotel that's now a museum of one man's eclectic collectibles, this restaurant is in the deep end of what was once the hotel's indoor pool! But it's the menu that cinched the deal for me. Sandwiches, salads, soups and more, tastefully prepared and at a very reasonable cost. Beer & wine available. You receive 10%... More

Myself and the boss were pointed in the Cafe's direction by Glenna at the Peace & Plenty, what a treat, cracking food, magic ambience and non-intrusive music in the background, the service and the staff were excellent, roll on next year.

Just go because it's in the basement swimming pool! Food and service were decent. At least check it out once.

What a great stop before or after your museum tour. Located on the site of the old swimming pool in the hotel, the atmosphere is great and piano music playing is relaxing. Service was superb. I had the panini of the day which was an Italian, and I loved it. My husband had the open faced crab salad sandwich and... More

Tried two appetizers here as part of a food tour that I probably never would have tried otherwise - Hummus and Escargot and both were excellent. Beautiful restaurant in an old (1889) swimming pool within the former Alcazar Hotel. Great location to walk to in downtown area.

Stopped by for lunch. Nice house chardonnay by the carafe. Cheese plate was large but nothing special. I had shrimp and artichokes over pasta which was to die for. Husband had shrimp crepes which were equally outstanding. Service was terrific. Atmosphere is a ten out of ten. Nice guitar playing fellow serenaded us all.

When we visit St. Augustine we always try to come here for lunch (now open 7 days/week for lunch and one time/month for dinner I believe) and it never fails to charm us. Food is consistently good...soups we tried this time...mushroom and lemon/chicken and both were wonderful! pizza on menu now! Son enjoyed a lot. Appreciate the carafes of beverage... More
