We always make a point to have dinner in this small restaurant when we visit Marco Island, and the food is always of the highest standard, in my opinion even better than Cafe de Marco. It might not look much from the outside, but once you get inside the staff are very attentive and a welcoming atmosphere. Will be back... More

So far this is the best dinner we've had on Marco Island. We never would have even found it without Trip Advisor as it doesn't seem to be on any island "Most Popular" list. But our hotel concierge told us she'd heard fabulous things about it AFTER we returned from dinner. It was truly a gourmet meal, starting with excellent... More

We then went back separately just the 2 of us and again was excellent. Can be quiet though if you go after 8pm as there are 2 sittings and the island can be quiet and older in clients... More

I don't know how Tripadvisor does their ratings but they missed the boat here. This place should be way up on the list as the food is great, the service impeccable. Plus, it's opened on Sunday night, which is how we wound up there. Most other places were closed. It's a great place to have a relaxed, meal and be... More

This is a small place located in an equally small group of shops. The exterior will not draw you in but don't be deceived. The food and service are simply outstanding and the interior is a perfect setting for an intimate dinner. We have eaten here for many years during our winter stays and were concerned when the former owners... More

Intimate atmosphere, well-staffed, delicious food beautifully presented, a little treasure on Marco Island. The owner is always on site, attention to detail at all times, friendly, warm, perfect.

We make sure to dine here every time we visit Marco Island. Truly our favorite restaurant here, and we've been coming for 20 years. We try to go early for the early dining special -- appetizer and dessert are included before 5:30. The tomato onion tart is the best appetizer I've ever had. We had surf and turf this time... More

Tucked away in a small shopping center, we had our best meal of our trip to Marco Island. Seemed to be several locals enjoying the food -- always a good recommendation!

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