Came across restaurant by off chance and were sold by the setting. Beautiful seating area outside. However, felt slightly let down by the meal itself. Husband had ravioli which was just ravioli! I had Moroccan spiced salmon but think they'd forgotten to add the spices! Any sides were extra on top of an already steep price! Also beware bar prices... More

Service is pretty slow but good spot for breakfast. You have to ask for coffee and tea refills which is annoying but the food is above average and price is good so I gave them 4 stars. I got the egg sandwich (over easy with bacon and cheese) and it was very tasty! I would definitely return. Not a place... More

This has become one of our favorite restaurants on the island. Lovely outdoor ambiance, nice food... The chef has visited our table in the past and told us that he is very open to special orders, dietary restrictions... - just let him know... Last night things changed - and not for the better. We had dinner reservations for just before... More

The hamburger with bacon were ordered was terrific. The Boca Grande salad with shrimp, greens, avocado and grapefruit was very good, but undersized for $15. Fortunately, my wife and I shared both. Very nice room with outside dining. Service was friendly and efficient.

Two of us had lunch here for the first time on a picture perfect Sun. afternoon. We chose to sit outdoors at the rear of the cafe under an awning surrounded by lovely FL vegetation. Entirely delightful. We placed our order for 2 sandwiches. One Croissant Sandwich and one Alex Meatball Sub, a noted specialty on the menu. After a... More

New design inside looks great! Terrific slow cooked ribs and a beautiful Lemon Chicken with olives and vegetables. Service was slow, but friendly.

Walked in for cocktails and stayed for dinner and so glad we did. Had muscles as an appetizer. It was flavorful with scallions and fresh tomatoes. I ordered the ribs and I am a real rib snob. The cast iron smoker is right behind the garden so I decided to give it a try. They were some of the best... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay on Boca Grande. They offer a happy hour starting at 2:30 that offers drink and food specials. We tried several different things off the menu and all were very good. (My personal favorites were the tuna tacos and lobster nachos!) We sat outside in the garden area, and our waitress was very...

Had drinks in pleasant outdoor garden and appetizer after all day boat trip. Our waitress went over and above to make our experience fantastic! Brought 2 wines for tasting, accommodated special drink and appetizer requests at no additional cost and said sure we can do that!

Good value for happy hour. Well drinks $3 and a nice selection of tapas style food. We ordered lobster nachos (excellent), burger (huge), and clams. The setting was quiet and delightful outside. Service was excellent.
