Not only is it a great deal (2 dinners plus a bottle of wine for $39!!) but the food is delicious. You canselect from the entire menu. Very experienced, friendly servers. We try to go there whenever we are in Naples. Nice location on 5th Ave. S. Plenty of parking in back. You can't beat it!

While visiting Naples, we went to the Mangrove Cafe and enjoyed their promotion US$39 dinner for two, including two entrees + salad and a bottle of wine. It was a great deal, we ate paella and steak sirloin, both entrees were delicious and the atmosphere on 5th avenue is very nice!

This restaurant has a wide variety of good meals but a couple of my favs are the paella and the veal. They do a $39 summer special for 2 that includes salad, any entrée on the menu for each person, hot bread, and a bottle of wine. The owners are very friendly and dog owners and they will show you...

I have been going to this fabulous restaurant for more than 13 years. It never ceases to amaze me. The quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere is outstanding. The Wine and Dine for $39.95 is incredible because you may dine from 5:00pm till 9:00pm and no other restaurant on 5th Avenue offers that. Last night we dined... More

Got the 2 meal special for 39.99. The wine we got with thr meal sells for $3.50 @ Walmart. I got the Snapper with rice and asparagus and my boyfriend gift the chicken maesella. My rice was raw and asparagus was skinny, stringy. My boyfriends chicken gravy tasted like pancake syrup. Do not go here!

My boyfriend and I came here for the dinner special, 2 entrees, 2 salads, bread, and a bottle of wine for $40. It was fantastic! Our waitress was Genine (spelling?) and she was the best. I ordered the grilled salmon with coconut rice and asparagus. It was the best salmon I've ever ordered from a restaurant. Don't miss out on... More
