Although we've visited Captiva a few times this was our first time at Keylime Bistro. We liked it so much we actually ate there twice! I tend to eat way too much on vacation and wanted something "light" so I went with the blackened snapper with rice and veggies. I really loved it and got it both visits. My husband... More

I enjoyed dinner with friends at the Keylime Bistro. This restaurant is always recommended highly and does not disappoint. Some of our choices were the Filet with Portobello mushrooms and cabernet sauce, the Walnut encrusted snapper w/fruit salsa (great combination) and the grilled crab cakes, which were the best I have ever had. We finished up with the award winning... More

Very friendly, live music (guitar), outside seating. My daughter needed a cup of milk and they didn't even charge. Would definitely recommend!

We started with the Macho Nachos and it was huge and delicious! I had the Paella Valencia which was decent but have had many that are much better. Nevertheless, the portion size was large and I am now eating the leftovers :) The other dishes we ordered (Ahi Tuna, Pasta with White Clam Sauce, Calamari Salad) were all abundant and... More

We went for lunch after a morning cruise to Cayo Costa. We ordered the grouper sandwich and the crab cake sandwich followed by the key lime pie. The sandwiches come with slaw and a pickle and fruit garnish including a slice of cantelope, a piece of fresh pineapple, and a wedge of orange. The grouper sandwich was good, but the... More

After a 2 hour bike ride around the island we were ready for lunch. Decided to try the Keylime Bistro and we were not disappointed at all. Wife and I shared a Crab Cake Sandwich and the Bistro Salad and both were very good. Only reason I gave it a 4 was the service from the waitress. When I have... More
