Great seafood, steaks, and service!

We were looking for a classier fine dining experience in the area we visit every other year without traveling into Orlando or Daytona. The Black Tulip is such a place. Service was great, food was outstanding and the atmosphere awesome, we will definitely be going back!

Fantastic seafood special!
I visited the restaurant with my husband and son and delighted to try the fresh catch special, a generous and juicy piece of cobia with a delicious basil aioli! My husband had the duckling which he loved as well. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff was very warm and inviting.

Consistently Good
Great for intimate dinner to large parties. They always have a unique fresh fish feature and the standby salmon that I love. Their steaks are great, tender and prepared to perfection. Plus, their house salad with the curry dressing is outstanding. They also have a quiet bar (as opposed to a loud rowdy bar) and can prepare anything yo ... read more

The Black Tulip is an established venue in Cocoa Village serving very tasty dishes in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Although the venue has changed over the years to have a more modern look, the restaurant is nice to have a family gathering or a business lunch meeting.

Wonderfull food, the duck was some of the best you will ever have. Desserts were top shelf, key lime pie and flan are real treats. Very nice ambience. Unfortunately, the the restaurant layout makes it a little noisy. Worth it though.

The decor is much improved. The service was superb. If there was a flaw it was the turkey which was dry. I had the pork loin which was perfect, moist, sweet, etc. We would definitely return, though in the future no turkey, for sure.

Easter lunch in paradise
I have celebrated and had everyday lunches and dinners at the Black Tulip (now Tulip) since I moved to the area in the 1980's. They never disappoint. Easter lunch was a delight. My husband and I both had beautiful meals and the surroundings are outstanding. The Tulip stays in my top dining list world wide.
