Very nice Surprise!

I am in Savannah and really need to have some nice fresh seafood. Oh My Gosh, I had the sauteed fresh catch, today sea bass. It had a light lemon butter sauce and was served over bed of sauteed spinach and sliced potatoes. Forgot how much I love Sea Bass but this dish absolutely reminded me. I... read more

Went on TripAdvisor recommendations. Absolutely spot on.. Food was wonderful. Kind of out of the way, but easy enough to find. I had the Seafood Risotto, wife had the Clam Linguini. Both were great. Up there with the best meal we had in Savannah

Tried Toucan Café thanks to Tripadvisor's recommendations. Perfect. Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere. Easy to find and ample parking. ( no hassles of parking garages and tons of tourist). Delicious meal all around! Fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Would definitely eat here again. Been at this location for 15 years so must be doing something right.

We've had Toucan Cafe on our list for quite some time now, but finally got the chance to go for lunch. It was crowded, but we got a table very quickly and were able to sit outside and soak in the beautiful Savannah weather.

Just pulled this one out of a hat, but we got lucky. The atmosphere and decor was worth the trip alone. The menu had some very unique and creative dishes, and the people cold not have been nicer. Nothing fancy, just fun and great food.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch . We had no idea what a busy place it would be. Service was quick and food great as usual. We have eaten here for dinner and it always exceeds our expectations. We love the variety of the daily specials.
