Caretta on the Gulf (inside the Sandpearl Resort) came highly recommended to us. "Don't miss this restaurant," was how it was described to us. It didn't disappoint. Our server was "Nate." This man is such a 'pro." He made a scrumptious meal even more delightful. His helpful tips and excellent service were far above the norm. Nate was extremely helpful, friendly & personable, while addressing every need a diner could have. We dined "alfresco," with a great view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Our appetizers, salads, and the selection of breads were the best I've encountered, and believe me, we're no strangers to 5 Star restaurants. We love to dine out! Our pre dinner cocktails were ample, and the mixologist is to be complimented on his/her artistry!
My wife had a 9 oz. filet mignon. The presentation was terrific, it was cooked perfectly, and the taste was fantastic! (Lucky for me, my wife believes in sharing!) There was a slight, sea salt seasoning around the rim of the entire filet, simply delighting taste buds.
For my entrée, I selected veal medallions. They were not the usual flattened, 1/4 inch thick pieces of veal, that is frequently the fare offered by other establishments. These three pieces of veal were a full 1 1/2 inch (or more) high, slices of veal. They were cooked perfectly, tender and succulent, and also featured the sea salt rim that was on my wife's filet. I was so pleased with my choice, I can't wait to go back!
The ambiance, the professionalism of its staff, and the quality of this kitchen, is extremely evident, in every respect. For dessert, we shared a "Blondie" brownie. Absolutely delectable. The dining experience, provided by this establishment, is exceptional. "Don't miss it."
While in Clearwater, visit "Caretta On The Gulf" in the Sandpearl. You won't be disappointed. This is a great restaurant for a special occasion, for a romantic dinner, a family outing, or just a great experience when you want to treat yourself to something special! Ask for Nate! He won't disappoint you either!
