My wife and I booked our tour using a groupon, which made it just about buy one get one free. We enjoyed a pleasurable stroll thru historical downtown St. Augustine given by our guide Alan. He did a very good job!!!!
Our first stop was Athena Restaurant (Greek). We were served a goat cheese spread with pita bread as our first course. Normally i am not a fan of goat cheese, but this one i actually enjoyed. The second course was a gyro which was also very good.
Our second restaurant was Meehan's Irish Pub. Here we were served a cup of New England clam chowder, reuben spring roll and beef brisket slow cooked on guiness on a roll. All were very good!!
Third restaurant was Prince of Wales. This is the only restaurant I didn't care for and I love fish. Here we were served a beer battered, deep fried piece of fish along with a little bit of fries. It just didn't live up to the other restaurant food in terms of both taste and presentation. They may want to rethink going to this restaurant in the future.
Between our third and fourth restaurants Alan took us to a popcorn store to sample some unique flavored popcorn and a tea and spice shop. The aroma in the tea and spice shop was wonderful. We sample some tea and spices.
Our fourth and last restaurant was The Gourmet Hut. Here, the chef came out to our table and welcomed us all to his restaurant. He then proceeded to tell us what he was going to serve us today. This really impressed me to have the chef come out!!!!! I can't remember our first course, but it was good and it had a little kick to it. Second course was a delicious beef wellington. Third course was a scoop of ice cream along with a brownie covered in chocolate sauce.
Make sure you come hungry!!!! After the second restaurant I was beginning to feel full. If you have any food allergies or a certain cuisine you do not care for, please let them know ahead of time so they can hopefully grant your request. You can also purchase wine for the tour also. At each of the four restaurants, you get a glass of wine. The cost is $15 and you pay at the beginning of the tour.
Along our tour Alan also took us to a place called Vino-Del-Groto. Here we sampled different wines and wine smoothies. My wife and I enjoyed it so much we stopped back here the next day to make a few purchases. The woman working there was fun to talk to.....she is originally from New Jersey like my wife and I.
We would definitely do this again!!!!!
