Alright. I suggest reading this, because I'm being fair here. We picked this restaurant because the menu looked good and elaborate, and the place itself looked cute and pretty.So, right off the bat, we walk up, and the hostess asked us if we had a reservation. We didn't, and she huffed and puffed and rolled her eyes. Then, after passing... More

We were looking for a new place to try out and my DH found this restaurant online. We parked and walked up to this little awning on the street and as we walked down the paved alleyway, I was amazed at the amazing oasis in front of us! Coy ponds, heaters, flowers, live music, and low key atmosphere! Just what... More

A wonderful, romantic setting down a path off Main St. Excellent food and service. Romantic outdoor setting. We only go there in summer when we can sit outside in the lovely courtyard. Pricey but worth it. One of our special occasion favorites.

My husband and I decided to do our own little pub crawl one gorgeous sunny afternoon in Hyannis, which eventually led us down Main Street that evening. We stumbled upon the Eclectic Cafe, unsure of what it actually was. We wandered down a pretty brick floral path which opened up to a beautiful brick courtyard, filled with flowers and greenery....

We happened on this place while spending our 30th anniversary in Hyannis. So glad we did. We sat in the beautiful outdoor area, wonderful jazz band playing all the standards and anything we requested. Food was gourmet quality, but far from gourmet prices. Service was outstanding--the chef even came out and asked our opinions on a couple of the dishes... More

Read this alone, then bring the person and/or people you love to this magical oasis in the heart of Hyannis without prepping them because the surprise, wonder, and awe begins the moment that you start wondering if there is even a restaurant at the address that you are approaching. The enchantment begins when you turn into the thin atypical alley... More

Went to Eclectic Cafe this week for a date and had the most romantic time. It was a gorgeous garden patio full of flowers and outdoor seating. We started our night with deliciously strong martinis and ended our night with wine. It was a leisurely dinner that included the beet salad, razor clams, a duck entree and salmon. Everything was...

On entering we were charmed by the alley entrance that opens into a very nicely decorated space. the jazz band was a nice touch as well. It went a bit down hill from there. A waitress who could not understand a simple request for hot water. Bread that tasted like it was from Stop and Shop. Main courses that were... More

Once upon a time Hyannis had a wonderful upscale hole in the wall restaurant called Eclectic Cafe", sadly it exist today in name only. I had been a loyal patron up until last year and went back three times this year before throwing in the towel on this self imploding establishment. My most recent visit was two weeks ago, it... More

You're walking down Main St. in Hyannis. It's after midnight and you're ready to go back to your hotel. When another couple walks past you and says: "Do you want to see the prettiest restaurant in town?" "Sure!!" The Eclectic Cafe was as advertised. A beautiful setting, off of Main St. Down an alley, actually. You probably would simply have... More
