We were visiting the Destin area and asked a friend for a good Italian restaurant and Tradewinds was the recommendation. Our meals were well prepared and well served. They are very popular and the seating area is small so make reservations. We got caught in Destin traffic and called ahead and they held our table for us. We will definitely... More

The food is excellent the only down side is the restaurant is small, you must make reservations and the acoustics are not great so it's pretty loud.

You're never disappointed after a meal at Tradewinds. And you never go away hungry. My favorite is to share a bowl of mussels with my husband, along with the wonderful fresh bread and olive oil dip as an "appetizer". Trouble is after so much of that, you can't do justice to a full meal. So we split a main course---sometimes.... More

This place is the epitome of local Niceville cuisine. It is a "hole in the wall" but that is its charm and it is what locals here like. I have eaten there numerous times, they know me by name. The food is first rate and the prices are great. I love getting the Quattro fummatgio pizza with pepperoni. It is... More

I've been here around 10 times starting 2 years ago. The first time I went here was on vacation in Destin and found this place in Niceville, just outside Destin and Fort Walton. Reservations are almost required because of the few tables. We were looking for a hidden gem of a restaurant and something less touristy than what we'd been... More

From the minute you walk in the door to the time we left, we were treated wonderfully. We didn't have are reservation. Our flight was delayed and we had been driving around for hours looking for things to do. We drove from town to town and didn't find any restaurants that were appealing to us UNTIL we came across Trade... More

I went there wanting to try grouper. This is type of fish is indigenous to Florida. They had ran out of grouper so I was a bit disappointed. I did, however try the crab cakes and they were very good. The shrimp fettuccine Alfredo was good as well, but only had 4 shrimp altogether. I'd call ahead of time to... More

This is my favorite restaurant of all times. The staff are super friendly and the food beyond delicious. The lack portion control so you always get a to go box. Their wine and beer selection rivals any establishment. They are open Tuesday to Saturday. You will definitely need a reservation on the weekend and lots of times during the week.

You know you are in for not just a wonderful meal but a warm welcoming experience when you open the door to Tradewinds - and get a huge from the owner, warm smiles from the staff and smell the delicious food. My favorite is Grouper My Way - which I always enjoy and my husband loves the mussels. The crab... More
