One of our top destinations when visiting the area. Always chef quality dishes, prepared right at a reasonable price that is unmatched in the area. We always seem to visit on a Tuesday and that is the only day that our waiter Dennis works and he is always dependable for great service.

One of the tastiest ahi tuna dishes I've ever had, and I've eaten it in so many places. Largest portion of ahi tuna any restaurant has ever served me for an appetizer. Very generous portions. My glass of wine seemed more generously poured than in other restaurants, and the creme brulee seemed large as well. I enjoyed the Caposaldo Pinot... More

We chose to eat at Purple Olive on a locals recommendation. We were a bit shocked at the high prices vs the food quality. Hubby ordered the lamb and loved the flavors. I ordered the rolled eggplant bake and found it lacking. We did upgrade the salads and found them to be both flavorful and good quality. *** Biggest dealbreaker... More

This is one place you do not want to miss if you are staying on St Augustine beach. The menu has something for everyone and the food is outstanding. They have a fresh catch of the day each day as well as specials. It may be located in a small strip shopping area on A-1A but don't let that stop... More

The owner of our airbnb recommended this place and we enjoyed dinner here very much. We were able to walk here from our condo, but parking is not a problem. They offer a nice early bird menu, although their regular menu is very reasonable as well.

The fish was quite good with a small amount of Jasmine Rice. I also ordered a cup of chowder that was a small portion like the rice. For the price i would rather a few other restaurants in the area.

Great restaurant in a small strip mall on S. St. Augustine Beach. Many very good choices from the menu for all types of tastes. The food is great and at a great value.

Visiting the beach and my sister had eaten here and thought we would like it. Well she was correct. Attentive service coupled with an interesting menu made for a lovely dinner. We stuck with the early-bird menu and the prices were very reasonable. I had the salmon and the others had the pork with everyone very pleased with their selection.... More

The mist amazing food. If you are looking to save money check out the early bird specials. We ate from the regular menu and the lamb was the best I've ever had. Great service and reasonable prices
