The selection is varied and utilizes the best of seasonal and local ingredients. Good wine selection. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. There is a nice bar for having a drink and appetizer or for a single traveler to enjoy dinner. I was able to sample many items from the menu and I really wanted it to be... More

The food is excellent here and the bartender, Tavvy, is the best. I had the scallops and creme brûlée. This cafe comes highly recommended.

Camellia Cafe is our favorite restaurant in Fairhope. The atmosphere is great. Wait staff is always very attentive. And the food is always excellent! I enjoyed the duck breast and my wife had the flat iron steak. We always try to visit Camellias any time we are in Fairhope.

I've tried to recreate this salad, but just can't seem to make it as good as Camellia Cafe! Maybe one of the best things I've ever eaten. This place is a must!

Had been here at their soft opening and did not feel the food hit the mark. We were a party of eight and everone way impressed with the wonderful food, excellent staff and great service. It does get a little noisy but otherwise a great experience.

I had never been to Fairhope Al but this trip for the Thanksgiving holiday was a surprise. Not only was the service excellent, but the food was beyond good. The salmon dish was the best my wife has ever eaten. The crab cake appetizer to die for. I suggest if you are in this area to be sure to make... More

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.
