This a a great restaurant hidden in an obscure strip mall. From the outside, you might very well walk by but don't. Inside was a friendly attentive staff and an outstanding menu. The restaurant itself was very eye appealing. The chef was not upset when asked to cook our fish completely through or make a few deletions to his entree.

This is worth the visit and we will do a return trip.

We visited this restaurant based upon reading the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. It was a Tuesday night and there were few empty tables. The service was excellent and we each ordered a steak. (Had been eating seafood all week.) They were absolutely delicious. After we ordered, the waiter surprised us by telling us that the special of the evening was "buy one get one free", which was a treat. Most restaurants don't tell you about these kind of specials unless you ask, or have a coupon. I thought the prices fit the quality of the food without the special. I will go out of my way to dine their again.

We are spending a week on Ft. Myers Beach and went to this restaurant in the San Martini Shopping Plaza yesterday evening. The restaurant has several outdoor tables, perhaps to attract smokers, but their only view was the parked cars close by, so we opted for the attractive dining room.

The tables were set with white cloths topped with white paper, as another viewer mentioned. I didn't find this a distraction & think many diners wouldn't notice the white paper. No one came along and crumpled the paper noisily ( as I experienced in another restaurant) after customers had left.

Our server was quite attentive and knew his job well. I had scallops and risotto which were excellent. My husband had a special, three tail fish with stuffing. As often happens in Florida, the restaurant was more attractively set than many of the customers in cut off jean shorts, flip flops and tank tops, looking like they had just arrived from a beach.


Look for the tourist booklets that offer ads and special offers for this restaurant.

I have never written a review before, but it would be a crime not to in this case. As the title states, definately the best meal any of our group of three had ever had! We had lobster tail; petite filet oscar; crab stuffed triple tail(fish). We also ordered coconut shrimp for an app. ALL were phenomenal! We couldn't stop raving about each of our meals. Our server, Brandon, was EXCELLENT!!! He gave great advice regarding both the menu & area attractions. We have two days left here & will be returning for one meal! There are alot of reviews proclaiming this a must do, but TRUST me when I say this one truly is!!!!!!
