Description: It's a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough and it's situated on the sixth floor of Lani Kai Island Resort, high above the sand and sea. Over looking the Gulf of Mexico, you truly have to see it to believe it. With breathtaking views, a completely reworked top-notch menu, and a half a million dollar renovation, The Island View Restaurant is ready to shock tourists and locals who laugh at the thought of the Lani Kai offering 'fine dining' and a new look.

Atop the lanai hai hotel...but what a great find. I had the grouper picante and a $5 happy hour margarita . The meal was served with cream cheese stuffed roles.delicious! service was outstanding provided by Kelly... A transplanted New Yorker. The wife also had a fab grouper dish. Try this place before it gets too popular!

The new restaurant at the top of the Lani Kai is quite a surprise! The view is amazing and the food was great! I had the chance to sample many different items. We had a great time and the server was fantastic. I thought the menu range of prices was a wise choice. Truly an amazing place to find on Fort Myers Beach.

We just had drinks and apps here as we're staying close by down the beach. This pace is great for what is is- Spring Break. Always a party going on here. It's not clean, service is average, drinks are O.K.- but it's always a party. I can't imagine staying here, but if I were in my twenties and looking for a fun place to be, this is exactly where I'd go.

After a long walk down the beach, we stopped in to try out the rooftop restaurant. We were greeted well on arrival and sat in a pleasant spot overlooking the beach. Cold beer, peel your own shrimp and a plate of beach fries (cheese and bacon) were the perfect combination. Food was fine, beer was cold and the service reasonable.
