We drove into Naples and right there as you enter downtown is this quaint little cafe... Mangrove. The have a special that we could not turn down... any two dinners plus a bottle of house wine (which was quite good) for $35. With two starter martinis plus the dinner deal, our total was $58 with tax and all. And the... More

I have periodically dined at the Mangrove Cafe since 1997. While many restaurants come, peak, and go, this bistro like place continues year after year to provide tasty food, good value and and friendly service. I have limited personal experience with many of their offerings as I can't get past what I consider their signature dish, the "My Sweet and... More

We arrived when it was busy but it was slow to get food - and at the end they added 20percent to the bill for the tip and put a big red pen around the total- I paid cash with a large note- and deliberately said nothing and didn't say how much change they should bring- without asking they only...

We went i n for a late dinner and cocktail during a quiet week night. I selected the Mangrove because the Web Site said the that Mangrove Cafe is chef-owned and operated by Doug Amaral and his wife Diane, who personally assure your dining experience. With a Portuguese name and a menu loaded with some real neat Portuguese offerings, we... More

We took advantage of the special deal for $35.00 which included an entree and a bottle of wine, anytime. We ate indoors seeing that it was too warm outside at this time of year. I ordered the crusted red fish and my friend ordered something from the vegetarian menu. Our meals were delicious and the service was welcoming and attentive.

Went in for a late cocktail and some dinner. Sat at bar with a couple of locals and a great bartender. Fun, engaging and attentive. He set the bar for our dinner, made sure we were aware of the specials for pricing and wine and kept us laughing throughout. The snapper was delicious. The location on 5th Ave is perfect.... More

My family and me have ate here three times during our 4 night stay in Naples and we haven't regretted it! Our waitor (Jan) is a lovely humourous woman who provided excellent service. The deal 2 dinners, 2 salads and a bottle of wine for $35 is brilliant, and worth it! I ordered the mussels which were great, my brother... More

This is a busy place on account of its deal - $38 for starter and entree and wine for two. Excellent service and the food is well cooked. You can get steak or pot roast and choose from a good selection of fish dishes. Pity other places near here dont do something about their sky high prices and its the... More
