This small restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and it was excellent. The wine list was great, the food excellent and the service impeccable. A perfect evening for my birthday dinner.

Wonderful dinner from start to finish. Very accommodating for reservations and placed us at a great table. Knowledgeable waiter for both food and wine. We had the duck spring rolls which were great. I had the Flatiron steak and it was excellent; Tender meat, plenty of it and a wonderful sauce. My wife had the excellent snapper and tomato salad... More

The scallops were excellent as was the bourbon pecan pie. The only drawback was the limited menu. Not much to offer. The staff was friendly and the service was great.

Server was great. Food was excellent. A nice, intimately sized restaurant with quite good food, nice wine list, and a well-stocked bar. Well worth a visit if you are in Fairhope or Point Clear. Not really set up for any large groups. Mostly tables for 4 and not much apparent ability to combine them for larger seating.

While in town for meetings at the Grand Hotel I sought out a place for dinner with a business associate. A coworker recommended the Camellia Cafe. What a recommendation!! The atmosphere was excellent for a business meeting as it was not too noisy and we didn't have to shout over the noise to be heard. The food was excellent and... More

I dined at Camellia Cafe. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice. We had five in our party. All of our appetizers, entrees, and desserts were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is an excellent restaurant, with a fine menu, good service, and what many would describe as a typical "cafe" atmosphere. The menu included among the starters some old favorites (Caesar salad) and some we'd not seen before (melon gazpacho). The same was true of main courses. Service couldn't have been better: attentive and helpful without being cloying. The only... More

Disappointment breeds brevity. Truffle fries? Standard french fries with a few bits of greenery thrown in, several thin strands of anonymous cheese and a few shakes of Sam's Club-grade truffle oil. 'Medium rare' duck breast entree improperly cooked. Served at room temperature. Combination of well done along half of inner edge (light grey), small amount of medium well in several... More

The best meal I've had in Fairhope, Moved from Atlanta, a foodie's delight, and Camellia Cafe is on par. The food and drinks were great. The menu is creative. Keep up the good work.
