We went for dinner and loved it. It's a nice place with a casual cozy feel. I had the crab cake dinner with pearl couscous and green beans. It was absolutely delicious. The crab cakes were perfect and the best I've had yet. My husband had the chef's special, which was a 13 ounce rib eye steak with a Cabernet... More

During our stay in Sanibel Island, many of the restaurants were closed as it was off season in late August but one of the few places open was Cips. Short for Ciprani, the family name of the owners. Lovely outdoor area and seating were available but because it was still muggy and 80 we decided to eat indoors, more casual... More

We went for dinner. They were closed for lunch for the season. The food was well prepared and there was plenty of it. My Wife had the Steak Chimichurie and I had the Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry. Both dishes were tasty. These two dishes were among the more economical choices from the menu. Having said that, this was one of... More

I wish I had gotten her name because our server was the best. She moved us due to a swirling fan that could not be adjusted. She he was right there when needed but not overly intrusive. The food was good. I wanted to try their signature prime rib sandwich, but, the chef on duty did not want to make... More

A lot of restaurants close in September due to the lack of visitors to the island...this one stayed open and we were glad. My wife and I are "foodies" and this place met our standards. Very nice restaurant (in appearance) and the food was prepared nicely and worth every penny.

This was a pleasant surprise in Sanibel, known for its high prices! Cips had a special on several entrees, and we hit happy hour so the drinks were discounted too. The service was excellent, and the food, while not gourmet, was very good.

We had dinner at another Sanibel establishment and decided to stop at Cip's for coffee and dessert. Carrot cake was excellent and my husband liked the keylime pie. The porch was a wonderful place to sit and admire the night lit garden.
