- About Us -

Founded in 1973, Café L’Europe has built an unparalleled reputation for its elegant and delicious European cuisine, award-winning wines, and professional service.

Its name and vision were inspired by the classic ambiance of the popular De L’Europe Hotel in Amsterdam. Elegantly designed with old world charm, Café L’Europe was originally the real estate office of one of Sarasota’s most famous residents of the past – John Ringling.

This iconic restaurant is owned by award-winning restauranteurs and philanthropists Amanda and John Horne. Our team are dedicated to ensuring that your experience is one you will immensely enjoy and keep you returning time and time again. Outstanding food, impeccable service, and the ultimate dining experience is more than their goal – it’s ours passion.
