Love to go here f o r a special evening. Great new menus. Sushi is wonderful. They now have small plate choices if you want great food but do not need regular portions which are also available.

We were shocked with how delicious our meal was. On Captiva Island, you are more or less a "captive guest" as there are limited dining options unless you want to drive to Sanibel. The entrees were priced between $24 and $32 and we were prepared...More
