It was pleasant and the snails outstanding. Check out the onion soup too as I am sure it is homemade and wonderful.

For dine dining this is our favorite restaurant. Not a large menu but everything on the menu is done to perfection and offers enough of a variety where you can be happy with any selection you choose. The hardest thing about going there is picking what item we want!! Highly recommend

We love this restaurant and enjoy coming for the early bird special, it is truly the best value for upscale dinning on the island! You can enjoy an appetizer or soup and a dessert with the purchase of an entree. The food is outstanding, I highly recommend the grouper island style, my husband enjoyed the jambalaya! For appetizers; escargot or... More

Gastronomic BLISS all around the table. They only serve wine and beer (which is right up our alley). Not a SINGLE unhappy face around our table of 10. Each course, each meal was cooked to perfection! What a diamond in the rough. Looks like a strip mall flub from the outside, but BOY were we ALL pleasantly suprised.

We stumbled on to this unpretentious restaurant in a small mall on Marco Island. The food and the service were exceptional. Having ordered and eaten, the fare was so good we had to order just one more of their delicious appetizers; who can watch their weight when the food is this good! Take your pick of appetizers or main courses;... More

Visited several times over the years, the food is more like I expect to find in Europe than typical US restaurants so makes a nice change. Service is very good and they accommodate the 'not so easy to please' (my Granddaughter in the case) by making whatever she wanted (within reason i'm sure) but produced a most excellent Spaghetti carbonara,...

We've dined here several times and always have had a great meal. I enjoyed the Seafood Jambalaya served slightly spicy. One of my favorite meals. My husband usually orders the "twin tornados" which are 2 tender pieces of beef tenderloin cooked to perfection and served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. Unlike many other restaurants on Marco, a salad or... More

This was a first-time for my guests and they enjoyed it on all counts. Island Café is where I entertain and enjoy a delicious meal. The salmon entrée was terrific as was the shrimp and scallop entrée. Diane was our server. Delightful evening out. Book ahead as this is a small restaurant and you want to be sure to have... More

Even the most rose tinted reviewer would find it difficult to describe the exterior of the Island Café as romantic. However, the overall quality of the dining experience totally outweighs this first impression. Undoubtedly this is one of the best restaurants on Marco. Clearly, William, the patron, takes great pride in his attention to detail and this is reflected in... More
