My sister was in town, so we decided on a nice day of walking around beautiful Mt. Dora,and found ourselves hungry. My wife and I remembered a romantic dinner there years ago with delicious food. We weren't wrong this time around. After ordering a fabulous sounding burger with blue cheese guacamole, I was told they sold out, and instead had... More

The food was above average. We shared two entrees and we were glad we did as they were both excellent. Our server, Kim, was a delight.

They are too busy to be atrentive such is a shame as the place still has a lovely ambience. The food was Aweful! Warm tenderlion salade was chewy and a waist of money. Sad to say this is no longer anywhere near the restaurant it used to be.

Goblin Market is my 'go to' place whenever I am in central Florida. Located in Mt. Dora, it is a hidden gem. The food is pricey but excellent. Ask for a table on the garden patio. Reservations highly suggested. During my most recent visit, I had the Tempura Dipped Artichoke Hearts appetizer. It is very good but since they are... More

I was starting a new business in Eustis Florida during August. Discovered this amazing restaurant with super hideaway upstairs bar. Nice, dark and cool, it became my getaway from painting, carpentry, etc. Several visits will be melded into this review. So, for starters they stock Compari (not that easy to find in central Florida) and after 6 weeks in Italy... More

Mt. Dora is well-known as an artist city, much more famous than its larger Lake County neighbors. There are many antique shops, gift shops, restaurants and art galleries in this quaint city. The Goblin Market has a nice setting with great food. You will love it here!

On Sunday, the last day of our weekend girl's trip to Mount Dora we went to The Goblin, on recommendation, for lunch. The delicious aromas wafting through the entire place were mouth watering. We shared a bowl of crab bisque, which comes with a little shot of sherry, because the three of us wanted to try it. Oh My!! So... More

Heard good things about the restaurant and it didn't disappoint.We had the crab cakes and mussels that was in a great creamy broth. You have to eat them slowly to savor every bite. We had the roasted breast of duck and the florida pompano, both were cooked to perfection with a subtle, flavorful sauce. But the star of the show... More

My wife an I were visiting the area so.we decided to walk along the quaint shops and grab some lunch. We got a few suggestions and since The Goblin Market was the closest we figured we would check it out. It's in a house so it feels like home. The hostess was wonderful. There are two outdoor eating areas. A... More

Just make reservations. This is the first place to book up in the village. Everything is good. Eat inside or out. At the bar upstairs if that is your only option. Lovely place.
