We expected a traditional Greek restaurant and got a great culinary meal. The restaurant was a challenge to get to, but really worth it. My wife had the best steak she has eaten in years and I had a fantastic roasted chicken meal. There were...More

We had a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed every dish they ordered. Appetizers such as the Burnt Brussel Sprouts and the Orsotto were fabulous. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Pine Nut Trout and the desserts were amazing. Must order the Mousse for dessert.

Treat yourself. The ambiance alone is worth it. Walking distance from Grove Park Inn. The meals were reasonably priced and the service excellent.

Description
Golden Fleece is a fairytale, born of a community rich in history and filled with a love of food & culture. Tucked away in the rolling mountains of Grovewood in Asheville North Carolina, Golden Fleece is a whimsical ode to the earth and the bounty of quality ingredients it provides. It is a celebration of slow cooked wild game, crackling fires, rustic recipes, and the beauty of naked produce.
