Great views and food.

Our extended family vacation stopped here for dinner after spending a beautiful day at Lighthouse Beach in Captiva Island. What a perfect ending to a beautiful day. Fish was spectacular. Bathrooms were pretty funny too. Hope to be back soon.

Finally finishing this review. Maybe better now but I doubt it. Sysco truck must be really big to deliver all the crap food they serve here. Why is fresh nutritious locally produced food so hard to find in America? Why does any building on the coast, well really the inercoastal, have to be this ugly?

Located on captiva island, the only thing worth noting about this restaurant was its view of the water. They categorize themselves as fine dining and the only thing matches up with that identity was its prices. We felt that the food was not up to par of a fine dining restaurant (our appetizer and entrees tasted like they were from... More

My husband and I had lunch that was good. I just had a hamburger that was alright and he had a panini that was okay also. We had a very nice waitress, that always helps make your visit abit better. The view was spectacular, we saw dolphins, a pelican land on a fishermans boat for a treat. The price was... More

We have eaten here two or three times before, and our meal, with a larger group than usual, was quite good and I continue to consider Green Flash as the second best restaurant in Captiva, with only Captiva House at Tween Waters Inn besting it. Nothing else, that we have tried on Captiva, has come close to these two lovely... More

A truly wonderful experience. Table by the window with a beautiful view. Started out with escargot. Perfect! Meaty yet tender, perfectly cleaned, with a tasty garlic butter. Yum! Our granddaughter had the salmon and cleaned her plate as did my husband with one of the nightly pasta specials. His was a shrimp and lobster pasta with a silky sauce. I... More

This is our second time at the Green Flash in the last few years. The restaurant seems to be at the end of the world specially for us coming from the NY area, the view is stunning but the food and atmosphere during diner is incredible.

Went to dinner here with my husband and some friends . We like to come back every time we are in Captiva. The food here is excellent, the fish is so fresh and baked to perfection. I had the baked grouper with rice and vegetables. Fish was seasoned perfectly, however the rice is bland. My husband got their Au Gratin... More

The view & atmosphere at The Green Flash is spectacular. My son loves seafood. So every time we visit Captiva Island we go there for dinner. It's expensive but, worth every penny spent

Excellent food had by all in party, seafood by most, but chicken was delightful as well. Service outstanding. Interior is rather dated but nice. Will definitely return each time we are in Captiva.
