Great lunch spot

Had lunch here with three women (one my wife). Each of us had something different. Chicken salad in a pineapple, hamburger, Greek salad and I can't remember what else. All were excellent and we all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Limited menu, but something for everyone.

In a nutshell, the food was great and the service left a little to be desired but I suspect we just chose the wrong day of the week. I happened to notice another review on a Sunday night where the reviewer was turned away because the restaurant wasn't staffed to handle a party of seven, Interestingly, we were also there... More

I was there on Sunday July the 12th around 1pm with my family visiting from Spain. We went there because it is supposed the best restaurant in Saint Augustine Beach. We were 7 in our party so when we asked for a table they told they have a limited staff and they can't attend us, so we left. I guess... More

High quality food, beautiful presentation, good portion sizes, and pretty reasonable prices for all that. Lobster bisque is cheesy, thick, and de-licious! Waldorf Chicken was flavorful and had lots of chicken in it and was so pretty! Highly recommend!

This is a genuine fine dining experience. The dining room is lovely, not crowded but still with an informal feel. The menus is strongly seafood oriented, with classic presentations beautifully plated. Service was good and not too obtrusive which can be a problem in some places. This certainly rates as one of St Augustine's best places for a great dining... More

Loved the breakfast, staff are very helpful, and you can mix and match items from the menu. My kids loved it.

We stay at Castillo Real for four nights and decided to try the breakfast since you can get a discount voucher for $8.50 or so if you purchase the night before. We were a party of seven and the place was pretty much empty. However, with the poor service we received you would have thought the place was full of... More

Stayed in Castillo Real, awesome hotel by the way. Ate here twice for breakfast hoping for a quick breakfast to get the day started. It was never really crowded but it took them a while to make some pancakes and sausage links... and the first day you could taste some kind of spice in the pancakes, like maybe the griddle... More

With very short notice a friend wanted to celebration her 30th wedding anniversary in an intimate setting. Norberto and his staff were very accommodating and made the event one to remember. A special menu was placed at each table setting with choices to accommodate everyone. I personally had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. The presentation of each dish was... More
