Fodor's Review

Shoppers and businesspeople meet here for some of the town's most dependable and inventive cuisine. Amid brightly painted, textured walls and a display kitchen, the menus roam from "41 Prime Dip" sandwich and the popular bistro salad with portobellos and a pesto drizzle to a delicious pork pot roast. To experience the kitchen at its imaginative best, check the night's specials, which often include daringly done seafood (crabmeat-crusted triple-tail fish with caramelized

plantains and passion-fruit beurre blanc, for instance). Small appetite? Half portions and small plates are on offer. When weather permits, ask for a table on the patio.

A rarity in Fort Myers

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our meal at Bistro 41. It's one of the few restaurants in Fort Myers that we would recommend to friends. If you save room for dessert, the carrot cake is wonderful! Enjoy!

sleepy old Fort Meyers meets 21 Century

This bright fresh oasis in Fort Meyers is real find. Lunch is served as if you had all day and you will find you want to linger over your food. The Chicken with Vermont Cheddar is a favorite as are the wonderful salards and the daily specials are not your usual run of the mill. Save room for desert the Irish Whiskey bread pudding is not to be missed. Oh, yes the BREAD is great too.
