My boyfriend had the Classic Club which he said was fantastic and I had my usual Hummus which never disappoints! Both sandwiches came with... More

As is clear from the photograph, this restaurant in what used to be the deep end of a swimming pool is visually appealing. My wife had a turkey sandwich and a salad which was pleasant, but not particularly unusual. I had a chicken curry salad. Unfortunately, the melon was not yet ripe and, consequently, was somewhat hard, bitter, and tasteless.... More

We stopped here as part of a food tour but would go back. It is amazing atmosphere (dining in a swimming pool?!) We had an assortment of fruit and cheeses with bread and escargot - all which was very good.

The food was delicious and there was a decent selection of things to choose from for both adults and kids. I was nervous going there with kids, since the open environment could create a really bad echo if they were loud, but it didn't seem too bad and the kids were so intrigued with looking at the pictures, the decor...

Great food, great setting and great guitar player. Came in for a late lunch - wonderful food and good service. Setting makes it extra special, seek this place out - cool (temp) and cool (style).

Do not miss this restaurant when you visit St Augustine! It is located in what was the deep end of the pool in Flagler's resort, Hotel Alcazar. The building is now The Lightner Museum but the restaurant can be accessed without visiting the museum and paying for the tour. We decided to try the restaurant for lunch because a local... More

What really surprised us was the food being so good in a museum. The service was excellent as we munched our salads and sandwiches. The menu is modern and the food combinations well planned. Go to the Lightner Museum & have lunch at Café Alcazar.
