Fodor's Expert Review Café de Marco

$$$ Marco Island Eclectic

This cozy little bistro with cheery pastel walls and stained-glass windows has served expertly prepared local fish since 1983. The jumbo prawns—an entire pound butterflied and broiled in their shell—are the signature dish, but grilled filet mignon on phyllo pastry proves the kitchen also knows how to do meat. Try stuffed Florida lobster, sautéed frogs' legs, or the broiled seafood platter. For a taste of the café without the sticker shock, dine from 5 to 5:45 for a reduced-price early-bird menu.
