Fodor's Review

In the midst of a warehouse-size store, this bistro, accented with artifacts from exotic places, is a favorite of locals. The marvelous sesame-seared tuna lunch salad with Asian slaw and wasabi vinaigrette exemplifies the creative fare. For dinner, try the barbecued baby back ribs, macadamia-crusted grouper, or any of the day's finely crafted specials. A local band entertains two nights a week. The bar serves light nibbles and happy-hour twofers.

Best food we had on Sanibel

I found the food on Sanibel overall pretty ordinary. Maybe I just picked the wrong places. But this was one that made us want to return. Unfotunately we had only one more night and they were booked up. Their seafood is fresh and delicious.
