Just returned from a week on Clearwater Beach. I had two fabulous dinners at Bobby's Bistro and Wine Bar. The wine selection is phenomenal. The menu is not extensive, but provides variety: fish, seafood, pasta, beef, and more.

The first night I had the fresh fish and they prepared it without the seasonings as I requested. The asparagus was tender and not overcooked. Our waiter provided great service and kept us laughing all the time. He encouraged us to take our time and not rush through dinner.

The second night three of us had the seafood pasta dish of the day - penne pasta with large succulent shrimp, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach, and more. A week later my sister was still talking about how tasty the dish was.

There was only one confusing thing and that was about the seating...The first night I called ahead for reservations as it was a Friday night and I wanted on the patio. They told me it was first come, first served on the patio, so I made an early reservation which the person said would get us on the patio and we did.

The second night (Saturday) we dropped in without reservations and asked to be seated on the patio. I was told that all the tables on the patio were reserved! As we were taken through the patio to our booth in a small room without windows, I saw many empty tables. Different rules for different nights??? or for tourists???

The restaurant is hidden away on a back street. To find it, locate Bob Heilman's Beachcomber Restaurant on Mandalay. Bobby's Bistro and Wine Bar (Bob's son's restaurant) is directly behind it.

We had a fantastic dinner here in early August 2007. Am so glad our group of 7 chose Bobby's. The food was wonderful, service was great, wines were reasonably priced. The 'foodies' among us were pleased. Best meal we had while in the area.
