We both had the grouper, which we really enjoyed. it's not the least expensive in Naples...over $300 with the tip, but we'd say overall that... More

My husband and I spent our last night at this restaurant in Naples. He ordered a fish entrée ( I think it was grouper) that was extremely good and was visually pleasing to the eye. When you pay upwards of $40.00 for an entrée - you kind of expect that. I wanted something very light so I ordered the simply... More

We had breakfasts and dinner while staying at the hotel, La Playa. Food and service were excellent and we enjoyed all our meals here. The breakfast buffet was very good. Expensive, but worth the money.
