“Great Ambiance and Drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a great spot to hang out. Great views of the marina and outlying areas (Sanibel/Captiva in the distance). Like the bar area and also has a bunch of tables to just hang out, have a few drinks and something to eat.

“Nauti Mermaid at the Westin of Cape Coral”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

I decided to give this restaurant another chance now that it has been taken over by the Westin Corp.
It was absolutely horrible. The pork sliders should be called sloppy sliders that tasted like bottled bbq sauce. The fried, spicy calamari should have been called rubber with soaked bread and the presentation, nonexistent. The service was extremetly slow and the waitress not friendly.
The atmosphere is fantastic and that's it. We will not give it another try. Pure waste of money.

“Just go for drinks and the sunset.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

The happy hour with half-price appetizers changed and we missed it. The food prices after this were pricey so we just had frozen mango margaritas and enjoyed the sun setting over the Florida skies! Drinks were $6.50 each and delicious!

“Was Better Before”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Has been one of our favorite spots for lunch, expensive but the food is very good and the setting is beautiful on a nice non-windy day . We took two groups of friends here recently and were disappointed. The bartenders are friendly but the service from the kitchen is very slow and they messed up our orders both times. The portions are smaller and more expensive than before. We are hesitant to take people here now.

“no service Mermaid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stopped here for lunch. Had three waiters/waitresses during that time. Asked two of them for napkins, never saw the napkins. Chowder was ok, calamari was sub-par. Nice location. Very poor service.
