Bayfront Bistro is a Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast Award winner and the wine selection has 400 bottles to choose from, with something to please every palate. Dine in air conditioned comfort in the spectacular dining room where every table has a perfect view of the Bay or outside on the dining deck. Our talented chefs have crafted menus that will delight your senses! Start your meal with our Asian Calamari or Bayfront Flatbread, try our famous Bistro Salad, and then continue with 10 oz Filet Mignon, Bayfront Butterfish or Pork Con Mojo. And what meal would be complete without our Chocolate Seduction or Bayfront Bread Pudding? We look forward to seeing you!

“Best food with water view on Estero island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

All indoor and outdoor tables have a beautiful view of Estero Bay.
The Menu includes bar food as well as gourmet items. Service is what
you would expect at a popular waterside restaurant- friendly but not always fast. A little pricey for a "beach " restaurant , but the experience is upscale enough to make it worth the price.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

Finally a great Restaurant on Fort Myers Beach with a great menu that should please anyone's pallet with a fantastic view from every table. Why did it take so long to happen?
The food and service at Bayfront Bistro is uncompromised.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

We have been to Bayfront Bistro 3 times now. Each time we had a great experience. The first time we stopped in for Happy Hour. They had an appetizer table set up in the bar area with yummy complimentary treats. The other 2 visits were for lunch. Great food, wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. WE ordered the fried green tomato BLT on our first lunch visit. What a great choice. Next time we plan to go for dinner.
Bayfront Bistro is a wonderful addition to Fort Myers Beach dining. It is one the only fine dining[with a casual flair] on the Island. Harrah!

“Definetly the finest restarant in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

We were there when it was jam packed. We waited about 10 minutes at the bar to be seated. The entire restaurant...every seat....had a view of the water. The food was great as was the service. The Chef came out to greet us and gave us one of his special appetizers.

We have been back two more times and will go back again and again
