Established in 1973 in John Ringling's original real estate office, Cafe L'Europe has become one of Florida's most distinguished restaurants. The original brick walls are enhanced with artwork by local artists, distinctive archways, and Spanish terra cotta tile for a warm, relaxing old-world ambiance. Our award-wining cuisine and selection of fine wines from Europe and America strike the perfect balance of tradition and innovation that have stood the test of time and trend. Many of our signature dishes are prepared tableside for the added drama of a truly memorable dining experience. Cafe L'Europe offers indoor and outdoor dining as well as a temperature-controlled veranda for the best of both worlds. Our private dining rooms can accommodate parties from 8 to 65 guests and we have a professional catering team to handle your special event.
