GIRABALDI CAFE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE WHILE MOVING TO A NEW LOCATION.
Since 1978 Garibaldi Cafe has been a local favorite for fresh, local seafood and comforting Italian fare. Garibaldi has three distinct settings, each one lively and romantic, replete with Charleston charm and sparkling with candlelight. A cozy cafe adjoins an inviting outdoor courtyard overlooking the historic city market and an upstairs dining room has the proportions and trappings of an elegant downtown home. The focus is on local daily caught seafood such as snapper au poivre and the famous crispy flounder. Crispy flounder is scored to the bone and the crispy outside keeps the tender meat moist and is glazed with an apricot shallot sauce. Attempt by others to duplicate it have enhanced its legendary status.
