Caretta on the Gulf has excellent food, especially for a hotel, and good service from a personable staff. After checking out the Clearwater/St Pete area for a restaurant, Caretta appeared to be the best and it was.
The food was well above the "throw a steak on the grill' type with finely attuned sauces and vegetable matches. Prices were reasonable for this level of food. There was a good wine list, with some reasonably priced wines. The decor was nice and the tables well spaced.
The restaurant may be good for a quiet conversation on week days but on the weekend the attached bar /lounge made a lot of noise. The only other negative was a 10 minute wait to be seated even though we had reservations. Fussy eaters may have a problem with foods such as quinoa.
