While the food was pretty good, what made me give this 4 stars was the awesome live music. Easy to take kids to. Would recommend.

Went from Sanibel just to check out Captiva. Got a slice of key lime pie to go. Generous slice, had the full setup in a to-go box, fast & friendly service at the bar. Filling was not too sweet and not too tart. It was...worth the stop.More

Horrible service. Was told to pick a table. Was acknowledged by staff, then never served. Watched two other tables sat after us get served drinks and have there orders taken. Then my 7yo said mom look at that big bug by her side of the...table and it was a roach. So we got up and walked over to RC otters. As we walked out the waitress serving the other tables said to another girl working, “what, did no one get them?”.More

Definitely recommend the grouper sandwich. Bread is delicious and the grouper is so good! The homemade slow has pineapples in it and was unusual and so tasty! Can’t wait to come back!

Probably the best meal we had in Captiva. Excellent salmon. Also very relaxed environment with some pleasant live music. Good service and would definitely return.

The service was great. The place is cute. Breakfast was not great. Had the huevos rancheros which may have been a bad choice. It was like having chips and salsa with a side of scrambled eggs.

Just love the laid back atmosphere and excellent cuisine of the KeyLime Bistro. Our favorite for Salmon Oscar and Chicken Marsala! Live music in the evening and tasty quiche for breakfast - just doesn't get any better👍👍

We had breakfast at the Key Lime Bistro. It was very pleasant eating outside. The menu was interesting and prices reasonable for a tourist area. The food was very good and the portions more than adequate. The service could have been a bit more attentive....Employees wore masks and they sanitized very well. They took the salt and pepper away when the previous diners left, sanitized the contains and returned them.More

Parking is directly across from the bistro and you do not need a reservation during off peak seasons.
