Best Outdoor Dining Areas in St. Augustine

St. Augustine is one of the most beautiful Florida vacation destinations. With great access to the sun and sand, you’ll experience true relaxation on our shores. One of the best parts of St. Augustine is the incredible food, as the local restaurants take full advantage of local seafood and produce to create some of the most delicious dishes you’ve ever tasted.

St. Augustine has ideal weather to dine outdoors most of the year. If you’re a snowbird flying South for the winter, or a family on Summer break, there are truly incredible spots to sit outside in the sunshine. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor dining spots near our St. Augustine condo rentals.

The Floridian

You can explore the mostly-organic selection of downtown’s own (and highly acclaimed) Floridian Restaurant. With a rotating menu that features products and ingredients by local farmers and culinary partners around town. With a tropical beach vibe and upscale cocktails, this is the ideal place to find yourself during a warm day for lunch, or warm evening for dinner. Keep in mind that they are closed Tuesdays, and do take reservations.

Mango Mango’s

Mango Mango’s has been serving the St. Augustine area for over a decade, and guests keep returning for the friendly people, laid-back atmosphere, and of course, the delicious food! Their unique menu offers something for everyone, from their crabby cheese fries to their clam and shrimp chowder and classics like fish and chips or an old fashioned burger.

Whether you are feeling safe or adventurous, you’ll be able to find something on the menu perfect for your mood. Take advantage of their outdoor dining to soak up the sun while you enjoy a great meal.

You’ll experience tastes of Asian, American, and Mediterranean cuisine, all with the gorgeous backdrop of historic St. Augustine.
