We came to Captiva House to cerebrate our 45th anniversary with friends who were celebrating their 50th anniversary! We had a delightful evening. The service was good as was the food. The ladies had the small plate Chilean Seabass with polenta. It was beautifully presented and delicious. The men had Filet Mignon with gorgonzola cream and garlic potatoes. We all... More

We stayed in Ft Myers Beach and drove to Captiva House for dinner. So glad we did. The food was excellent from start to finish. Our waitress, Dana, took such good care of us and made us feel welcome. It's a lovely spot....go!

The inside of the restaurant exudes class. Service was very good, but the food was expertly prepared with nice presentation. It wasn't a busy night, so we expected menu items to be limited, but were accommodated with whatever we desired. Met the chef on the way out and raved to him!

Sushi were creative, well executed, and incredibly fresh. The crab bisque was one of the best that I had ever had and while lobster spaghetti... More

Captiva house has a dual roll, one as a breakfast restaurant and one as a dinner restaurant. There is a choice for breakfast, either continental or hot. Today I had s shrimp and egg omelet which was teaming with fresh gulf shrimp. Pauline, Jasmine , Dan and Mical well make sure you are well taken care of.

My favourite starter was lobster en croute and the Island Snapper wrap was popular for the main course. This is a great place to watch the sunset, accompanied by... More
