    Very friendly staff at this small cafe with cute decorations. Tables set nicely, much like the "old time" tea room. The food was very good and portions were great. Chef came out and made sure everyone was happy.

    Staff was pleasant. Food was pretty good. Most disappointing was the groupon was not accepted. Found out after settling in with drinks and bread and review of menu. It did get us to stop there and try the menu but felt taken.

    The best way to experience dining in LBTS is to explore the little boutique restaurants like Delacaseas. Away from the noisy beach bars, lace curtains and table clothes, we were treated to the best dinner here. Red Snapper piccata, scallops, rib eye steak, and rack of lamb all served with the largest toasted beets you’ve ever seen! All fresh, farm to table. What a gem in a busy beach town!

    The best thing about this restaurant was the wonderful service we received from Michael the server who took care of us. He just recently started working there and was very attentive. The food quality was very good. So, you might ask why the two-star rating? Well, it goes something like this. We arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation to be told that the table was not available and with no expectation of when it would be available. We were treated as if we were a bother rather than a customer. A gentleman came out who appeared to be the owner, when we asked when will our table be available since we had a 730 reservation, he answered, “well everybody had a reservation for 7:30“ If it were not for Michael advocating for us to have a table, we would’ve probably never sat down and would have gone elsewhere. We were finally seated at 7:55 pm and we did not receive our meal till 9:00 pm.. It’s a shame because the restaurant is quite lovely, and we understand that a small restaurant can have a challenge meeting all its reservations. The point was the lack of care from the owner and frankly, we never even received an apology or even acknowledgement that they were not ready for us. There are so many great restaurants and choices at this price point (our meal for 2 was over $100) that we will not be back given the attitude from the owner. Not once did he apologize. It’s too bad he takes the locals for granted. When the hot summer days arrive, locals are the ones that would help him survive the doldrums.

Had breakfast, which was delicious and prepared to order. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely a recommended restaurant and they take Open Table reservations.

    We have always found Delecaseas to be a wonderful dining experience. Our last trip we were disappointed in the Crab Cakes. But tonight it was back to normal. I had the special Brazino fish dinner and my wife had the Snapper Picatta. Both excellent. This place is highly recommended by us. Bypass the Crab Cakes, but everything else is superb.

    My wife and I both ordered the branzino. Mine was cooked perfectly, hers not so much. Brussel sprouts were delicious. Sauteed veggies we're drowning in sauce. Beet salad excellent. Key Lime tini & Chocolate Mousse were both really good.

    We have been here several times. Food is always excellent, except last night my wife and I thought our crab cakes tasted a little fishy. We don’t think the crab was fresh. Our friends meals were delicious. They had veal and salmon. We will be back, but we won’t order the crab cakes again.

    Very quaint small restaurant, with a bed and breakfast feel to it. Interesting menu, with a number of intriguing breakfast items (4 types of eggs benedict, etc.). Service reasonably attentive and more than willing to do the little extra things - bring an extra scone, or sausage patty, to suit the most finicky guest (i.e. my brother).

    Lovely place, great service, and awesome food. This is a small place you wouldn't easily see so it seems like a hidden gem. I had the market special which was branzino fish with fresh brussel sprouts that was cooked perfectly. I also had the beet salad and key lime pie (deconstructed). It was all a feast for my taste buds. Loved it and will be back.
