My tuna was excellent. Quite possible the best I've ever had. And the chef paid close attention to details regarding a food allergy. Also, an excellent wine list and great service. This is always my first choice for dining in Boca Grande. I always return.

The food at the Temp is reliably good. The atmosphere is Caribbean but it is noisy, particularly in the back (Caribbean) room.

Known to locals as the Temp we ate here 2 nights of our 4 night stay. Must start with the fried oysters and Temp salad. The ANY fish dish is perfection. I had the bronzed grouper piccata ( choose your fish, and sauce). This place is very popular for a reason!

A trip to the island just wouldn't be complete with a few meals at The Temp. I dream of the deep fried Oysters all year long. Outstanding food. Service is 5 star.

The food is delicious. The service is solid. It's a small restaurant so make sure to book in advance. The crab dip is fabulous but could be a meal on its own.

It was a good choice -- a comfortable, easy-to-be-in spot. A number of visitors were ordering salads, and they looked so good, we decided to follow suit. The... More

We took a cruise to Boca Grande and this restaurant was suggested to us. We weren't disappointed. We were told that it is the oldest restaurant on the island (and the decor attested to that fact). The staff were friendly and efficient; the food was very well prepared and reasonably priced.
