Hidden away in a nondescript strip mall is one of the best dining establishments on Marco Island. From the minute you walk in and are greeted you feel the warmth of William the owner. He takes great pride in his establishment and delivers an experience worth more than the price charged. Rob was our server and by the end of... More

We wandered into this little restaurant last week and what a surprise! The atmosphere, service and food were excellent. I had seared scallops & shrimp prepared to perfection. My husband's FR onion soup was fantastic as was the blackened grouper. There is an art to being professional without being stuffy; Diane, our server has the gift. We enjoyed everything about... More

I visited twice in September, and I ate dinner here on both visits. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent, and the value outstanding. This is a small and intimate restaurant, with the owner on hand ensuring your meal is up to standard. A lot of restaurants close for September, I was very happy to see that this one... More

Ok, so I may be a local, but I anyone would feel welcome and pleased to try Island Cafe. It certainly doesn't look like much from the outside in a small strip mall next to a barber shop and pizzeria, but it looks a lot more inviting when you enter. It is dimly lit with white linen table clothes, local... More

I have eaten in some of the best restaurants in new york and they do have excellent service and great food but when you home far away from home on a small island in florida you don't think of a five star restaurant or five star service you think of casual dining in shorts and a casual shirt but to...

True French bistro in a strip mall location... Wonderful taste and presentation of food served by people who enjoy what they are doing. Nice wine list too and all at very reasonable prices. Can't go wrong with a meal at the Island Cafe!

Don't feeling eating all that... More

This restaurant serves delicious food in a small establishment that, while pleasant on the inside, is next door to a nail parlor and barbershop, so there's not much ambiance. Quite reasonably priced and nicely presented and served. Beer (I think) and wine only.
