Cafe Margaux is in the heart of Cocoa Village, a great place to take in the sights, shopping, dining and entertainment.
When I'm visiting the village, I always try to have lunch or dinner here. It is a great place for fine upscale dining.
Even though I've lived in Florida most of my life, I always wear long pants when dining at this upscale restaurant.
Depending on the time of year, if it's not too cold or too hot, it's fun to dine outside in their beautiful patio.
Everything here is delicious, especially their seafood. You can usually find grouper, salmon and mahi on the menu. They have excellent beef also, with beef tips Diane and filet mignon that is as good as you'll find anywhere.
Scallops make a great appetizer, and theirs are deliciously prepared.
Each day the chef selects three different fish for their seafood trio, and I especially like it when he has grouper, mahi and salmon available.
Their salads are fresh and abundant, with all kinds of pleasant surprises available like goat cheese, pistachios and other nuts, and various citrus fruits. All of the food presentation is magnificent and looks like something you would see in a fine dining magazine. Their wine is also good and affordable. With 4,000 bottles and 400 varieties, their wine selections will satisfy everyone.
Their desserts are great especially their Creme Brulee if you are into that sort of thing.
The restaurant also hosts many special events. The first Thursday and Friday of each month, they hold a 6 - course dinner and wine tasting with a featured winery and their representative. Wines can be purchased from these representatives at favorable prices.
If you are like most of us, you will come back to Cafe Margaux for a second visit and more.
