This is a great place for foodies, with the most charming 'old florida house' atmosphere. Don't forget to save room for dessert! Vegetarian friendly. Also, pricey.

My wife is on a low sodium diet, around 350ml a meal. Would she be able to find something on the menu to accommodate her? Thanks

yes -- we don't add seasonings to most of our proteins until they're ordered. Just tell the server that you want no salt in the preparation. Thanks!

Description
Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery, located in the center of the Village of the Arts in Bradenton, Florida, features an international menu created by Chef Jim Copening, and broken dish mosaics and jewelry by Donna Slawsky. Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
