“Delicious sprinkled with fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We visited due to the good reviews and we were already in the area. We were seated promptly and with an excellent view. There were two specials and my husband and I each ordered one. The food was delicious! My husband had angel hair pasta with shrimp and lobster in an olive oil garlic broth. I had Cajun grilled salmon with rice and fresh vegies. Rice often tastes cheap in restaurants, but not here! We ate every bite!

Now for the fun part.... The bathrooms! The men and women's bathrooms each contained a unique feature... In the women's room, as soon as you walk in, is a male mannequin facing the wall (like at a urinal)! Made me wonder if I was in the right restroom! The men's room was even better (so says my husband). The urinals were in front of a two-way mirror looking out over the bar! Gave him quite a scare when he looked up and saw people while using the urinal!

“Good seafood - nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The food and service were good, and the place can easily handle large parties. I would go again. The view over the bay is great....

“Fantastic !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Dined here twice in the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. On each occasion, the food and service were excellent. One of my meals included a fillet steak which was done to perfection. Ambience and atmosphere very good. The place was very busy on each evening, requiring a short wait for a table, as bookings are not taken - but well worth the wait. Can fully recommend.

Stopped because we wanted to eat lunch with a view. We were not disappointed. The view was beautiful. We enjoyed our meals and the staff were great.

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

This was our first visit to the Green Flash. What a great surprise! The food was excellent as was the service. Great view from all the tables. The blackened salmon was to die for with the salsa. WOW! When we come back to Sanibel we will be back!
