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.

This restaurant was recommended to a friend and myself for lunch. We really enjoyed dining here and learning the history of this former hotel as well as the restaurant having been a swimming pool. The sandwiches we ordered were excellent and the live music was a treat.

Wife and I had lunch during our recent getaway. She had the turkey, bacon and avocado sandwich with french onion soup. I had the club sandwich with french onion soup. Both dishes were quite good and the service was excellent. The live piano music was a bonus and the setting of the restaurant quite unique.

Perfect lunch for couples or a ladies lunch. Very fresh food, great sandwiches, soups & salads. Haven't tried the entrees yet. It's located in what was the swimming pool for the old hotel that is now the Lightner Museum. There's even a piano player, great spot!

My wife and I enjoyed another very pleasant lunch at Café Alcazar. We each had Escargot as appetizers; they were very tasty and just the right amount of garlic. For entrée, we both had the Artichokes Giovanni which were delicious. The music provided by a pianist added a fine measure of elegance to the beautiful architectural setting of the restaurant....

Our first stop of our Vittles and Vino Tasting Tour took us to Cafe Alcazar, where we sampled Clifford Bay sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. It wasn't the kind of wine I'm used to drinking, but it paired very nicely with the bread/olives/cheese and hummus plate we shared with part of our group. I would actually consider the combination again,... More

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.
