You go here for one reason. The Gulf view. It's magnificent. We thought the prices were inflated compared to the magnificence of some of the dishes on the island. You go for the view.

We had the very best server at the Sea Breeze Café in the Sundial Hotel on Sanibel Island, FL. Her name is Christine. Christine was not only professional but went above and beyond the call of duty as far as caring, accommodating and friendly. Christine is very special and very rare this day in age.

The service, atmosphere & food were great. We went here to eat the first night at our condo in Sanibel and it was very enjoyable. The service was great, the food was good, and it was very relaxing. We st outside over looking the ocean and we had a very nice evening!

Not a lot of places where you can find seafood and A BEACH view, in our experience here in Sanibel. Although this restaurant is inside Sundial hotel/ condos (that has been remodeled since our last visit) they offered a variety of options. I was very pleased with my sushi while hubby loved the crab cakes. Staff was friendly and fast.... More

A second person appeared and said there would be a wait, then offered an outside table. First woman reappeared and disagreed with availability and announce that there would be a 25... More

We live in the area and decided to try somewhere new for dinner on Sanibel Island. We were greeted by a smiling gentlemen that immediately sat us. We were then greeted by our server Tyleigh and it just got better from there. We ordered cocktails. We both ordered Caesar salad. My husband had the New York Strip with plank potatoes.... More

If you are looking for a nice view of the Gulf of Mexico while having your meal, this is a great place to go. Free parking. No wait. Service was good. Prices are reasonable. My husband had the fish tacos and enjoyed them immensely. I ordered a burger, medium, and it arrived with the bottom bun soggy with blood and... More

Visiting Sanibel Island for the first time, we drove to Sea Breeze at the Sundial Beach Resort for a lunch with a view. The view of the gulf from the outdoor porch was very nice. The food was just OK. We dined on Shrimp Skewers and the Greek Salad with salmon. The Skewers were drenched in sauce and he bed... More
