Amalia Cafe has absolutely fabulous food. The location is tucked away in Palm Passage where a very slight cooling breeze and amazing architecture make it lovely. I brought my boys, their girlfriends and our grandson. The only possible negative comment I could make was that our sample of the white Sangria left me cold...we ordered 2 pitchers of the red,...

Very pricy for lunch. The wait staff was good. The menu is very limited, and for what you get on the high end. We would find somewhere else next time.

Very pleasant place with great variety. We had duck and a wonderful seafood dish. Would not recommend the bread pudding for desert.

The food here is excellent. If you are looking for a great meal, this is your spot. It is tucked away in Palm Passage, so it is in a great location but it still has a quiet feel. The bar is a great spot to sit and chat while enjoying a great cocktail. Our food was so tasty, you absolutely... More

Had an outstanding lunch there. Everything was perfect- Gazpacho was ice cold and served in a large stem glass, 1/2 lobster stuffed with crab meat including tempura asparagus and tempura rice cakes, and key lime meringue pie. A beautiful location in Palm Passage in the heart of the shopping district. they also are open for dinner

Nice food and good service combine in this little alley-based restaurant. A fun place for a drink and tapas.
