The best food on the island

Happening place but dark inside. Grilled fish sandwich dry. Beef sandwich not tasty. Flies around. Service was ok. Menu limited.

Most of us had seafood which all enjoyed. Those of us that didn't have seafood weren't as happy with the meal. If you like seafood, this is an excellent restaurant. The menu is creative and the presentation well done. The service wasn't fabulous the night we were there. They kept forgetting things like silverware for the tea and coffee, and... More

This small, quiet place is one of my favorites on Marco Island. The food is always great and the service is too. It's good for a special occasion, but also good for just a quiet dinner for two.

Had dinner last night at Island Café with 7 other ladies. Most of us had not been there in a few years. Everything was wonderful. I haven't enjoyed a meal like that in a restaurant in a long time. All of us took advantage of the summer special and were more than pleased. Everyone loved each of their courses and... More

Stopped in to this place I had not been to while visiting my parents in Marco this year. Small place in a tiny strip mall, but had a decent amount of folks dining. Food was very good I enjoyed the Pecan Salmon entree and the Escargot were nice too with a good presentation. They get a 3 because the service... More

We found this little gem on Trip Advisor and based on the positive reviews decided to try it. In a word... OUTSTANDING! Our first visit was on April 28th. It was only a 5 minute drive from our Villa but extremely difficult to find (even with our navigation). Many people have accurately described it as not impressive from the outside.... More

This cafe is deceiving from the outside. It is located in a small strip mall with no outside dining which may be a turn off for some Florida diners. We had dined at many of the local outdoor spots and were in the mood for something nicer. Island Cafe did not disappoint. The crepe asparagus appetizer, spinach salad and French... More

Too bad Hockeymomgg had a bad experience. By contrast, we loved everything about the place (including the decor!). Island Cafe is a small , out of the way restaurant, well worth looking for. The decor was understated with soft colors and warm lighting. I, personally, loved the lace toppers over the tablecloths; nice, subtly elegant, touch. Everything about our dinner... More
