Fine Wines + Craft Cocktails

Our expertly-curated wine list has received the Wine Spectator 2023 Award of Excellence.

- About Us -

This season marks Café L'Europe's 50th year in its iconic St. Armands Circle location.

Whether celebrating life’s most meaningful moments, or the end of a long week, we welcome lovers of food and drink for a five-star experience inspired by Europe’s finest bistros.

2023 brings a reimagined restaurant interior and new dining menus. European culinary tradition inspires scratch-made dishes using local, sustainable ingredients. An exquisite Old World-meets-New World wine list, craft cocktails, and live piano music greet you from our chic lounge.

We aim to graciously walk the tightrope between past and future: To honor beloved traditions of Sarasota families, to welcome new visitors to our beautiful destination, and to celebrate the legacy of a place once housing the sales office of Sarasota’s most famous resident – John Ringling!
