The location was convenient. The outside of restaurant was clean. The inside was equally clean. The service was very good with no rush for us to leave. The soft drinks were generous and properly priced. There was a wide verity of food on the menu. The entrees were made exactly the way we like them. The waiter stopped by our... More

The best fresh salmon dip with tortilla chips anywhere! Also the NE lobster roll is large and very good. Very busy, obviously a popular place with seating indoors and outdoors. Crisp fries, crunchy coleslaw. We didn't have dessert but they have quite a showcase.

We stopped by as we were pedaling along the Pinellas Trail. I liked my grouper sandwich, but my wife thought that the crab cakes were mediocre. Pleasant atmosphere. Nice wait staff.

We lunched at Cafe Alfresco early in the week. We have eaten here before and have enjoyed it every time. CA has an attractive menu; we ordered grouper and Cuban sandwiches which were very good. The grouper was light and flaky; it was much larger than the bun. The seasoned fries were perfect. Our service was excellent. We sat is... More

We shared two appetizers, the crab cakes and the shrimp. Both were wonderful but the Shrimp was awesome. Our server Ben was friendly and attentive. The house wine was... More

We had a great meal here, food was great, the service was hit and miss but that didn't detract. For what you paid you got a lot of quality food it, the portions are large, but very tasty. Seems to be always busy so plan ahead.

Had a nice lunch with the family. Seared tuna, grilled cheese, Cuban sandwich and a root beer float. Everyone was happy! Service was friendly and fast. Great location in downtown and right on the trail.

My husband and I both had the salmon. Great! Sides were good as well. This place never piles it on, thank goodness, and the presentation is always nice. Very polite staff as well. If you are in Downtown Dunedin, great stop for eats!
