“What a change!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

We have been occasionally visiting this resort and restaurant the last few years, and the improvement has been incredible on all counts. We recently went to the restaurant, and had a wonderful dinner. The chowder was very good, I had the pasta special and my wife had the seafood special, both of which were very good. The service was very good, and the wait staff goes out of their way to remember you. The changes to the resort over the last two years are quite spectacular, with more apparently soon to open. Sea Breeze and Sundial are a find!!

“Fun environment and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed the pulled pork sliders and drinks. It was a fun atmosphere and music played by Danny Morgan and John McClaine, especially Beatles songs. We were there for Margarita Mondays.

“Sanibel Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

We just had a great experience at the Sea Breeze Café located at the Sundial Beach Resort & Spa on Sanibel Island. Our server was excellent (Joey) and the food was delicious-- my husband had a fantastic filet and I had the special which was scallops with jambalaya which was really good. We sat outside on their deck overlooking the newly renovated pool and an awesome view of the Gulf. Highly recommended!!

“Great Cuban Sandwich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

Our visit started out a little slow because they were dealing with a large wedding party. None of the party was eating when we got there, but they were definitely occupying the wait staff's time. We weren't greeted, no were we seated. We seated ourselves and waited and waited. I finally went to the bar and asked if the restaurant was open.

About ten minutes later our server came by an apologized for the delay. She took our orders and things moved along nicely after that.

I had the fish tacos....three flour shells filled with a nice mix of fish, cabbage, pico and a spicy mayo. Good stuff! I think a little side would have added something, but all-in-all the tacos were good.

Mrs. M had "The Skinny Cuban"; marinated turkey breast, Miami mustard, swiss cheese and Cuban bread. And it came with fried plantain strips. This was awesome! What a great blend of flavors and spices. We'll both be having this is we come back!

It was raining outside so we sat at a window table. Our view wasn't all that great, probably because of the rain.

If we took off the first 20 minutes of our visit, when we waiting for a server, this would have easily rated a four.

“Just average place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We stopped by for drinks and appetizers. The outdoor seating is above the pool which was a bit of a disappointment but otherwise nNo complaints, no raves
