You are actually eating in the swimming pool of the Alcazar hotel. We went there as part of a walking wine and food tour. What we got was a lovely bit of food and a tasty wine. Like everything in St. Augustine the service was wonderful.

Only open for lunch, we decided to try this place for no particular reason except that we were already touring the Lightner Museum....so why not? Live piano music, upscale with reasonable priced food and......delicious food! Be sure to get the Greek soup....excellent! Service was professional and warm....as in unusual! Don't miss it!

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.

This unique place is worth a visit. We enjoy lunch here almost every time we visit St Augustine. The sandwiches are excellent, and the atmosphere (what was once an indoor swimming pool 100 years ago) is super cool. Very good service every time. This one's a keeper!

Amazing lunch with friends prior to the Diva run. Everyone loved their food...pizza, artichoke pasta, and Mahi sandwiches on chibatta.

This was a nice, different dining experience. This cafe is small and in a drained pool. We had appetizers and they where great. Service was good and prices where reasonable. I must do if you are close.

Very cool - you're dining in what used to be the oldest sunken pool, which is at the back of the Lightner Museum. Terrific ambience and fantastic food, even for lunch. White linens on the tables, but feel comfortable dropping in for lunch in shorts.

While visiting the beautiful and interesting Lightner Museum, we had lunch at the Café Alcazar. Wow -- what an elegant place to have lunch at, and in such a unique setting. While piano music was softly playing in the background, we dined on their delicious cuisine. My husband ordered their Shrimp Giovanni, which he proclaimed as being "one of the... More

The food is great, I discovered this place through a food tour I did, because I had not seen it before. Its a hidden GEM, the restaurant itself in right where there used to be a huge pool, the history behind it is very interesting. Its a great tapas place. Totally recommend it.

Tour the Lightner Museum first and receive a 10% discount at the restaurant with your tickets. At the museum, the docent will explain what the restaurant use to be when it was a fancy hotel in the 1800s.
