I'd say either of those two would be my recommendation, though Old Captiva House might have a 'charm' edge IMHO. Try and get reservations 30 minutes before sunset and enjoy the views - which are better from Old Captiva House if you can get near the front windows.

Alice's restaurant on Sanibel Island has always been the most romantic place for me, but it is not open to the public. After that, Old Captiva House is probably the next best one. ;~)

What a sweet comment about Alice's restaurant, Ken. But now I'll have the Arlo Guthrie song in my head all day. Not that I mind, really- it's a great song.

I've never been to the Old Captiva House, so I can't comment on that. Richard and I like Il Tresoro on Sanibel for our rare special meal out.

Ha ha...I actually thought there was an Alice's restaurant and figured they just did functions and private parties!

The real Alice's restaurant is up here in Mass, in the Berkshires. The one the song was written about
