There were four of us for lunch at the Café Alcazar. This converted Victorian-era indoor swimming pool defies description. Impeccable service and background guitar music provided for relaxation and enjoyment of our meal. The others choose sandwiches prepared in a way that is unique to...More

Unusual historic venue at the bottom of a dry swimming pool. Good menu unprofessional staff, mediocre chef. Make your preferences known, do not accept "we must cook to State Health Law standards" OVERDONE AND TASTELESS!,

Service and atmosphere were good, but chicken in my mother's club sandwich was loaded with gristle and she could not enjoy it. Our salads were mediocre for the price.

We really enjoy dining here during our St Augustine visits. The food and the venue are wonderful. This time, regretfully, it was freezing cold and that made our time there less than enjoyable.

I have been a regular customer over the years. I adore the ambience...do calm and peaceful. Have had both business lunches here, as well casual lunch with friends. The food is fresh and delicious, reasonably priced. One of my favorite lunch spots in downtown.

Toured the museum of this former Flagler Hotel. Beautiful private collection- well worth the visit. Highlight was lunch in the former indoor swimming pool of the hotel called Cafe Alcazar. Well worth the admission price for the museum and delicious fresh food in a lovely...More

The cafe is predominantly a lunch restaurant, with very limited dates for dinner. It is well worth the wait if you're not able to make it for lunch.
