“Careful not to swallow a fly!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner with my daughter, son in law and 10 month old grandson.The food was ok but overpriced. The music was good. But, the minute our food was brought to us we were sorrounded by flies they were all over our food, our faces, just everywhere! We thought our grandson was going to swallow one. When we told the waitress, and another person who works there they just said that that's the way it is. You would think they would at least try to put a bug light near by to prevent this. We will never go back there again. What a disgusting experience!

“Vacation on Captiva”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We tried the Keylime Bistro two times in the week we spent on the island. The food and service was just average. The restaurant did have live entertainment. We had both seafood and nachos, so we tested their menu. We felt the prices were high for the quality of food that was served. We sat inside and outside and there were no real advantages to either. The restaurant does have a good, convenient location.

“Not a family place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Food-we had shrimp scampi. I hated it but husband liked it. I can say for sure the shrimp is not fresh. If you want a really good pasta wait for the duck to have the garlic linguini special(with shrimp) it is 100xs better. The atmosphere was more for adults...everyone drinking too much and smoking. The PDA was just too much for our children to watch.

“Comfortable casual setting. Good good and relaxing music.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

The food was pretty good compared to other restaurants we have tried in captiva/sanibel. The patio is relaxed and fun. A guy plays good music, giving the environment a very cool tone.
