Very posh restaurant. Gorgeous view of the beach and sunset. Love the pretzel bread rolls and herb butter. Had the sea bass over tuscan white beans and kale. Was delicious. Others had the filet mignon, the pad thai, and the black grouper. The caesar salad was simple but very delicious. A little pricey, but wonderful food. Service was impeccable.

I held a dinner here for a group of 20 clients in August 2014. They have a very nice private dining room (I have brought clients here in the past). The food is a little pricey but excellent as was the service. This would be a wonderful special occasion place for a couple.

With ate at this restaurant five times during our stay at the Sandpearl resort and absolutely loved it. The bar is lovely for a pre dinner drinks and the food in the restaurant is wonderful, great sushi, and the most amazing steaks. The view is amazing and the service exceptional particularly from Lindsey and Michelle who were outstanding. I would highly recommend thus restaurant to anyone visiting Clearwater.

my wife and I celebrated our anniversary by having dinner last night at the CARETTA. all I can say is WOW. originally from PHILLY and now residing in PALM HARBOR we have dined at many five star restaurants up north and would put the CARETTA right up there with the best of them. the menu is a little small, just two pages, but the selections were very good. our server "RUSSELL" was very knowledgeable and professional. the ambience was outstanding and the food and service were FIVE STAR. the few negative reviews I have read must be by people who would find fault in winning the lottery. treat yourself to a fine dining experience and go to CARETTA ON THE GULF.

We dined here while staying at the Sandpearl Resort. The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows with amazing views especially at sunset. There is also a nice bar area with loungey seating. The menu has several dinners ranging from $30-mid $40. There is also hand-rolled sushi & a price fixe menu. The chef uses seasonal ingredients & as many organic foods possible. We were impressed by the concept, presentation & service. However, our food choices were disappointing. The filet was cooked medium rare but was not tender. The vegetables were bland as well as the sea bass. We definitely expected more from a restaurant that considers itself fine dining.
