This is my favorite restaurant in the whole island. Fresh seafood and great steaks for those that prefer meat. Great wine list and the desserts are great!

Temptation doesn't seem like anything special from the outside, but the food and the service at this hidden gem are exceptional. Don't visit Boca Grande without having at least one dinner here. Quite possibly the best fried shrimp I've ever had in my life.

Great food and service. Love the quaintness of the place. Originality- They have not changed this place for over 30 years. They did that on purpose and bring back the authentic experience of the establishment.

We tried this restaurant a second time and were not disappointed. Food was a little pricey, but great. As always you get what you pay for! Friendly and helpful staff. Freshest fish, and great local atmosphere.
