The short version of this review goes like this: Both my wife and I agree: We would have much rather eaten at Taco Bell. By a long shot. But here's the long version: My In-laws had wanted to go to Cantina Captiva for Mexican food,...More

The few times they have been open we have had moderately good food. Our frustration is that we are not sure they are organized enough to be dependable. It appears as if it is more of a "Hobby" for the owners than a serious business....More

As a seasonal resident of Sanibel I know lots of people who had experiences when this restaurant first opened that discouraged them from returning. Come back! Everything is delicious, you can eat light if you want, and the prices are fair. No matter what else...More

Went on a Wednesday night with my wife and mom. First off, the parking is very limited and difficult. It took about 5 minutes to get a spot and maneuver into it. Oh well, not too big a deal, but others were equally challenged. That...More

We googled Mexican food in Sanibel and Fresh Taqueria seemed to be the only Mexican restaurant here. It is hidden from the road except for a sign at the road. You park two lots down from the restaurant. The food was excellent and plentiful! Margaritas...More

Description
Fresh Taqueria has an eclectic menu that fuses Mexican Spanish and Southern cuisines. Our menu changes frequently depending upon what is available from local farms. We offer many gluten free and vegetarian options on our menu. Our food is prepared fresh daily sourced from local and sustainable sources. We are located in the red building across from suntrust on Periwinkle Way. Our parking lot is the third driveway west of the restaurant (the empty lot with our sign out front).
