We ordered the Greek Salad and Chicken, Bacon Club with no bread. (Gluten Free) The chicken tasted like it was microwaved. Greek salad was just OK. Nothing special. The setting of the old swimming pool was nice but if you want a good meal eat outside of the museum. Service was very good.

The best thing about Cafe Alcazar is its unique location.Located in the back of the Lightner museum, you are also eating in the deep end of a pool. That's right The Lightner Museum used to be Hotel Alcazar and had the first indoor pool in the country. Well, now you are having lunch inside the empty pool that has been... More

Really solid Turkey and avocado sandwich with good onion soup. The service was attentive and polite. The chairs and environment were interesting. I found it a bit dark and cold. My wife liked it (you're having lunch in a bottom of a huge swimming pool).

Located in the former pool of Flagler's Alcazar hotel, the surroundings of this restaurant are beautiful and the food and service are above average. Prices are reasonable too. It's a must-do for St. Augustine travelers.

We, six of us including grandchildren, had gone for lunch to Cafe Alcazar located inside the Lightner Museum Antique Mall, 25 Granada St., Downtown St. Augustine in Florida. The Cafe is housed on the deep-end of the onetime 'casino swimming pool', constructed in 1889, of the erstwhile Hotel Alcazar, 1887-1930. We had an enjoyable lunch comprising soups, salads, sandwiches, crepes... More

We ate here after visiting the museum, and were surprised that the food was so good! Live music was an unexpected touch which added to the ambiance. However our lunch was disturbed by two young children whose parents allowed them to continually run up and down the steps to the upstairs and down the hall! The floor and steps are... More

I loved dining with my friend in the restaurant in the deep end of the former swimming pool. She had never been in that area of any pool! It was fun, the wait staff was wonderful, but be prepared for a bill of $25+ per person without wine. The food was different and delicious. It was a real treat and... More

Had a hummus platter that was excellent and escargot that actually tasted good (and wasn't overly chewy).
