“Bring back crusted trout”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Have been several times and the best dish in all of orlando area was the macadamia crusted trout. The new offer of trout is no comparison and will likely not return without this dish returning to the menu. When you have the perfect dish don't take it away.

“What a neat place.”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

The Goblin Market restaurant is such a unique place. My only complaint is its location. They need a sign out front on the sidewalk to direct people down the alley to the front door. Other than that it was a wonderful place to have lunch on a rainy afternoon. The French onion soup is fabulous. Everyone in my group had a sandwich and they were all very good. I think mine was called Pecan Crusted Chicken. All the ingredients were super fresh. Our waiter was very good too. We will definitely return when we go back to FL.

“Excellent again.”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

I visit Mount Dora once a year. I have eaten at The Goblin Market every time. It has always been great. Its kind of pricey but that's typical of Mount Dora. The staff upstairs was as always friendly.
I will see you next year.

“First visit to a local treasure.”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

This is a restaurant you'll miss, unless you do a little research or ask a knowledgeable local for suggestions. It's sort of a hide-away, with access thru its entrance from an alleyway. The food is prepared by genuine chefs, the menu with its mix of entrees is varied with specials. Pricing is a little more than what you might expect in Mt. Dora, but genuinely worth it. I mean, I didn't leave the Goblin Market with any doubt I'd had a great meal, terrific service ("Justin" as I recall), and a pleasant, surprisingly wonderful evening. Thank you "Goblin Market"!
