“Below expectations”
Reviewed December 21, 2010

5 diners... Appetizers were great, but little things, like a glass of sprite being refilled with water, and a tea order forgotten set things off a bit shaky. The tuna and the scallops were great. The vegetarian curry was so salty it was sent back. The fish curry was good, but not spectacular. The snapper italiano was ok, but too much tomato and caused indigestion afterwards. After dinner tea was luke warm. The bill had the veg curry removed, and also the bottle of wine, a nice gesture. But will be go back? No.

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed November 19, 2010

Fantastic food, wine & service. My husband and I had a wonderful dinner there for a special occasion while on vacation. We were too full even to split a dessert, but the flourless chocolate torte sounded so delicious, we came back the next night for wine and dessert. Great hospitality from the owner. We will definitely go back next time we are in town.

“excellent food & service”

Once again took the opportunity to visit Cafe Luna and enjoyed an excellent meal - grouper with a topping of crab meat served on a bed of rice . Went back a week later and did the whole thing again.

“Delicious”
Reviewed October 28, 2010

The food at this restaurant is top notch,i will rate it with the finest restaurants i have dined in all over the world that cost 4-6 times more.I had their steak which was on the same level as Peter Lugers in Brooklyn.NY but much more delicious with the sauce it came with.The Salmon was the best i ever ate at any restaurant and the grits and rice that came with the dishes was awesome,never knew grits could taste that good.Their signature tomato,fresh mozzarella on a bed of fresh greens was as fresh as fresh could be with a nice balsamic reduction glaze.We could not finish our meals and had it for lunch next day,even the salad.Wine prices are reasonable and had no room for desert,i live 2 hours away but worth the drive for a special occasion.

“Superb”
Reviewed October 15, 2010

Yet again Cafe Luna produced - wonderful food, excellent, knowledgeable staff. Just back from our annual break at St Pete Beach and just had to try their new menu - excellent. Try the Thai Sea Scallops (with crispy stir-fry veggies and saffron rice) - to die for. Their Chilli Trio (now off menu) is available if you ask - that's what I like, they'll do anything you want. Allan and his staff are the Best On The Beach. Try it - you may be surprised. Oh, and the two steaks we had were tremendous - can't fault them. Keep it up Allan.
(Don't forget to try the dessert - usually only three to choose from, but try the praline/butterscotch/vanilla thingy - magic!)
