Clean, great service, food is good, fresh, good portions. My favorite's are the lobster salad, portabella salad, fried feta appetizer's. Hearty homemade chicken soup (ask to taste it first - can be salty) You may want to make a reservation - casual. Perfect place for friends or couples - not so kid friendly. Indoor and outdoor dining.

The salads are good and pastries are great. This place can get packed and I'm not sure why. It is close to the trail so you can bike or walk there. The food is okay. Not my go to but my grandparents like it.

Great food and service. Upscale feel with great prices. The atmosphere was comfortable and quaint and the wait staff was very friendly. I had a pasta dish with a salad that was terrific and my husband chose a chicken sandwich with potato salad that he enjoyed. All the food we saw coming from the kitchen looked amazing.

This restaurant is a fixture in downtown Dunedin. We have so many choices in dining that I haven't eaten here as often as I should. I took a date there just a few days ago and was reminded what great food and service they offer, and at a very reasonable price. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with Swiss cheese... More

Our girlfriends get away led us to Café Alfresco. We don't eat so much any more, so a shared meal was a good idea. The chicken Marsala was very good, and more than enough for us. for a $4 dollar share charge, you both get a salad and bread, and asparagus came with the meal. it was a great price... More

This restaurant has the same owner as Bon Appetite down the street at the harbor. Some of the same menu items. Not in the same league at all. I always order the lobster salad with fruit at Bon Appetute so I felt safe ordering it at Cafe Alfresco, where we hadn't eaten before. It was terrible. The lobster was a... More
