Bayfront Bistro is located on beautiful Estero Bay in a pristine preserve area on Ft Myers Beach. 200 yards from the white sands on the Gulf of Mexico the restaurant shares this beautiful location with Snook Bight Yacht Club & Marina. Bayfront Bistro is a Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast Award winner and the wine selection has 400 bottles to choose from, with something to please every palate. Dine in air conditioned comfort in the spectacular dining room where every table has a perfect view of the Bay or outside on the dining deck. Our talented chefs have crafted menus that will delight your senses! Start your meal with our Asian Calamari or Bayfront Flatbread, try our famous Bistro Salad, and then continue with 10 oz Filet Mignon, Bayfront Butterfish or Pork Con Mojo. And what meal would be complete without our Chocolate Seduction or Bayfront Bread Pudding? We look forward to seeing you!

No doubt about it, you absolutely can't beat the views at this place -- they are spectacular! We found the food to be overpriced for the quality and underwhelming for the atmosphere. Service was only "okay." One member of our party got stung by a wasp at our (indoor) table while the waiter was standing right there, and he pretty... More

Went because rated in top 10 waterfront restaurants but sadly disappointed. Service terrible even though they weren't busy. Limited menu and Dodd ok at best. Waited 10 minutes for bill and 15 more for change. Don't waist your time

Sorry - do the ratings go up or down? I hope they go up. We were with a large group from Bentley Village and were very impressed with the decor, the food, the service, everything.

This may be an occasion place for some, although locals and visitors alike will love the food and the view here for just a nice lunch or dinner out anytime. The chef is phenomenal with his fine-dining menu choices. I personally like to try something new each time. If you want to see Dolphins play, the back bay is where... More

Favorite spot. Bad experience recently when coming in for dinner by boat. A charter service was washing his boat on the reserved dock taking up three parking spots. He was very rude when we ask him to pull forward or back. This is the first time we have ever had a problem when coming in to spend money. Docking says... More

The ambiance on Estero Bay is exquisite. The outdoor seating was very nice. The marina (at least in off season) is quiet. The food was very nice especially the presentation. We enjoyed mussels in an incredible spicy sauce, calamari with a creamy spicy sauce, spring rolls and other appetizers. It is a very good restaurant especially suited for those special... More
