Food was superb as well as the service. The restaurant is small and reservations are definitely recommended, even during the week. Whenever we are in Fairhope again, a repeat visit is a must.

My favorite place to eat without kids. We've never had a bad experience. The food is perfection. Steaks and seafood are great...love the desserts. The staff is attentive. Quaint and intimate atmosphere. Absolutely love this restaurant.

We've traveled around the world and this is some of the best food I've had. THE most tender, smokey, perfectly seasoned grouper you'll ever have. The BEST GROUPER EVER. The crab cakes were wonderfully delicious and the mixed green salad with apples and goat cheese...More

Whether a special occasion or just a night out with friends, Camelia Cafe knocks it out of the park. The food is excellent, the wine list is exceptional and the staff is attentive and friendly. Feels like family.

A gem of a place with a cozy atmosphere and intimacy reminiscent of an upscale Napa or Sonoma bistro. Menu somewhat limited, but always delicious specials. Great filets and wonderful desserts. Best place in town for fine dining. Great, friendly staff.

Stunningly good food in a sophisticated but not pretentious atmosphere. Patrick was our server and he was terrific - very knowledgeable, attentive, and gracious. The staff is very professional and puts their guests first. I got the seared ahi tuna, which was cooked "just right"...More

Dress code, you will see anything from business casual to dressy. The location is downtown Fairhope. The chef does a great job of keeping the menu new. The seafood will be whatever is in season, very fresh.
