Lovely location and views. Relaxed bar area and fine dining, which they were happy to let us sit in just for a drink. Lovely kind staff.

This is a great island original - great bar, wonderful food (don't miss the shrimp bisque), and a view of Pine Island Sound.

Green Flash is a restaurant where we always dine when in Captiva! Great atmosphere--especially when seated by the windows! Their scallops are excellent and the side of polenta is also very good! Service is great, but reservations are a must!

Service was above average, drinks excellent, food just under average for the price. Crème Brule dessert was terrible.

Welcoming, courteous staff and a good selection of food which we felt was reasonably priced. The view over the bay is lovely and added to the enjoyment of the meal. I think previous negative comments about this restaurant have been a little harsh, one particularly bordering on the pompous! We were very happy with our lunch !

By the look of the building, I was expecting a little more than we got. I tried the triple tail which was delicious, but the huge mound of rice with oil on it that accompanied it was a little too much. Less rice and a veggie would have been better. The waitress was not the friendliest person and seemed annoyed... More

However, quality of food average, presentation and service average if not below to what we expected. The vegetables over cooked and my fish tasted like it had been cooked from frozen not fresh. I ordered a... More
