This place is really stunning. The whole atmosphere was like we left Marco island. The service was exceptional. The food was really great even though our menu was pretty limited. The drinks were strong so that was great! Would highly recommend for a couple wanting a romantic evening. Not really recommend if you have small kids. I didn’t see any but I would of felt uncomfortable bringing mine in. It’s not loud or anything very chill environment.

Thank Eva G

I had booked this restaurant for dinner as we were staying in the hotel. It was meant to be a good start to our holiday. How wrong I was! After being seated outside our server/waitress presented us with the a la carte menu. As the Summer Menu had been advertised in our hotel room and seemed good value, I requested this menu. It took a good 5 minutes before the server appeared to understand what I was talking about. Initially she said you had to pre-book, and something about at least 20 people?
Eventually, we were given the Summer Menu, and we duly ordered our food. This was brought along by various people, at one stage a group of giggling waitresses. Not very professional. For the prices we had hoped for something better. The food was nice, although not much of it.
The atmosphere was tense, with the sense that the restaurant did not have an identity.
We left feeling that we had paid a lot for poor service, not much food, and a general feeling of unease. Not at all the what we had hoped for.

We booked here as staying at the hotel and following a very long trip from the UK. Advertised as a special offer of 3 courses plus a glass of wine for $39 it seemed reasonable.We booked for 1930 and upon arrival at 1925 were told our table was not ready and advised to go to the bar for a drink. We both enjoyed a small glass of wine - wine finished at 2000hrs we were asked if we d sit outside instead of inside as our table was still not ready. This table never transpired! A 2nd small glass of wine and another 1/2 hour wait and table still not ready. Being over- tired we decided to leave. As we were leaving the waitress arrived to tell us the table had been ready a while but as we were enjoying our drinks at the bar she’d decided to leave us there???? $45 for 2 small glasses of wine each and no food we left disappointed and very tired. Would I go again - absolutely not. Up your game !!

Having eaten in many very good restaurants in and around Naples/Marco Island ... this restaurant is kidding its self ... over pretentious .. smallest menu known to man ... how can you present a $65 steak that includes “nothing else”?
We asked to be seated outside ... I did expect at least a token “cushion “ on a plastic seat ... nice weeds coming up through the drains also .... very very disappointing indeed ...
