Beautiful Gulf beachfront view (we opt'd to be seated outside on the covered porch, so we could watch a beautiful sunset - we really enjoyed the setting). We also found the menu to be very unique/ interesting and the service/food was wonderful! Especially, if you are staying at the LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort where this restaurant is located you'll...

My wife and I stayed at the LaPlaya Resort for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend, and had dinner at Baleen twice and breakfast there each morning. We found the food to be consistently very good, and the service was excellent -- the staff is well trained. If the weather cooperates, the sunset view at dinner is awesome (sadly, the... More

One of the few restaurants on the beach. You can dine indoors or outdoors. Marvelous sunset views. Since it's in a hotel, the patrons are everything from couples to families with kids. Service is top notch and the food is excellent. Huge wine list. Great dining experience.

Sat outdoors. It was August before sundown, so it was WARM. We enjoyed it, though, as the outdoor tables are a few steps from the beach. Service was very good. Food very good as well. 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

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.
