We stayed at Coquina on the Beach, and there is not very much for dining around there. Going into St. Armand Circle was a nightmare due to traffic. It was so nice to find this place right up the street walking distance from our hotel....More

The seafood pasta was delicious. The scallops were huge and tasty. There was tonnes of calamari, mussels, clams and shrimp. Hubby had the caramelized scallops and thoroughly enjoyed them. The view over to Sarasota was beautiful.
