Waterfront view with a chance to see the "Green Flash"!!!!

Nice atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor restaurant. A place I always take visitors because the view is so pretty. Watch the boats and birds while you enjoy a nice meal.

Enjoyed the food at the Green Flash along with the view. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and provided all the information we needed to make a great chic for our dinner selection.

I can heartily recommend the Green Flash. From the street it doesn't look like much, but looks can be deceiving. The dining room is large, high ceilinged and unpretentious. There are beautiful views over the bay. The service is prompt, polite, friendly and efficient. But the best thing about the Green Flash is of course the food. We were there... More

This unique restaurant sets on a spot with a off the charts view. The view was super delicious and our server, Sarah, was very good at her job.

The food was great as well as the view. The owner was very helpful in making menu recommendations and he was excellent. The Key Lime pie is unlike any other!

The first night we arrived to Captivia we went here and it was great. The oysters and mussels were fresh and big and some of the best I have had. The fish entrees were also excellent. We didn't have dessert but looking at those that ordered it around it it looked awesome. The best meal we had while in Captivia.

Has ample parking and boat dock and is across from Jensen's. Down the road from Andy Rosse Lane. Has the same type of American seafood and little gift shop with t-shirts, etc. Good for lunch.

Super location overlooking the water. Food mostly seafood (it is on an island, after all) but well cooked and presented, although not as outstanding as the location. Possibly a little pricey, but work a visit
