Our friends took us to this fabulous restaurant while we were on vacation. For folks who know the area you should know that the chef was the chef at St. George and the Dragon Restaurant before it closed. Cibao is fabulous! The food was delicious and artfully prepared and people know it...the place was packed and it was a week... More

This place has a pretty interesting menu with a Bahamian flair to it. Our party ordered multiple appetizers to share including deep fried artichoke hearts which were excellent and crab-cakes which I would rate as above average. The black bean soup is excellent, but It could of used a little bit more kick for me. I enjoy spicy food. The... More

This restaurant was somewhat disappointing. The staff seem to reserve their friendliness for frequent return customers. The menu seemed quite limited, with numerous food combinations sounding unappealing. The waiter said that the crab cakes were made from fresh northern crabmeat, and were very popular. What arrived were fried, greasy cakes, with fillers that included possibly peppers, among other things. Given... More

Food always wonderful...service the best....and the presence of Pedro and Pam and their family members make the experience special. We go as often as we can and love taking new friends who haven't discovered the place yet. We have never had anything but high praise from all our guests. Don't miss Cibao!

Cibao is one of our two best restaurants in Naples, Florida. The service is excellent, the waiters and waitresses are well trained and the ambiance is attractive. We are frequent diners.We have many choices for fine dining in Naples and Cibao is always a wonderful dining experience.

This was our second visit and each was a delight. It is very busy in season and often requires a three week advance reservation. Service was very attentive. The short rib special was superb as was the walleye. The lobster and shrimp papadelle was a little bland for my taste but they immediately brought me more sauce. Definitely a winner.... More

Service is good as well….The scallop dish is fabulous and another favorite is the Chicken piccata….tons of mushrooms and capers…with pasta…Caesar salad is great and definitely enough to split for two......my only complaint is the wait time when we arrived….twice we had a 7pm reservation and never was seated...

DInner or Lunch, we are never disappointed. The Caribbean infusion makes the food delicious and the presentation keeps us coming back for more. No matter if you choose a fish or meat dish you'll be delighted. One of our favorites is the fried artichoke appetizer - just that hint of parmesan will make your mouth water. The wine menu is...

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our friends who have a condo in Naples and visit from out-of-country several times/year. Had a reservation and when the four of us arrived, apparently there had been some confusion and no reservation had been made. Busy restaurant with lots of patrons coming/going. Soon we were given a table in the... More

After arriving at 7:55 PM for an 8:00 PM reservation, the hostess told us that we were early. The hostess (who I understand is the wife of the owner) then asked us to sit at a table adjacent to the bar (not at the bar -- she told us that those seats were reserved) and have a drink [not on... More
