A tiny restaurant featuring the freshest seafood in delightful inventive presentations. Service is attentive and the food is very tasty. Our group tried 4 different fish dishes and all were very good.

Reservations are a must and parking is a little tricky as they have a tiny lot. You can park across the street in a lot reserved for the Century 21 building in which this restaurant is located.

Tables are quite close together and it can get a bit noisy inside but altogether a spot worth a stop while you are in Marco.

We have just had a meal here and it is probably one of the best meals we have ever had in all the times we have visited Marco. The restaurant is chic and sophisticated with an imaginative menu - dishes with an unusual and unique twist. The crab cake appetiser and the flounder entree are delicious, cooked to perfection and I can thoroughly recommend them; they hold their own with any meals we have eaten in the UK, Europe or Australia. The portions are not super-sized but here it is definitely quality rather than quantity. "Fin Bistro" is not cheap but is worth every penny of the bill.

Plain and simple this is food for those that love well prepared food. Looking at the menu you notice the little hints that mean this might be a good place, wrong it's great! This is top shelf taste for a reasonable price. Go now before they are forced to raise their prices. Not your average Island fare dressed up with a little aioli pretending to be gourmet. There is love and care put into each ingredient. Don't go here if you measure your meal value by the size of the portion over the care of preparation and taste. It's a little tight and noisy when full but that is easily overlooked when you start eating.

This new restaurant is clearly doing everything right! It is constantly packed, yet the house is run professionally by people who 1. know what they're doing and 2. care about the customers and 3. seem to genuinely enjoy their work. Our table was ready after a short (maybe 5 minute ) wait.
The appetizers were excellently prepared and presented artfully. The asparagus, crispy prosciutto poached egg was delicious. The local Fresh (not frozen) spiny lobster tail was cooked perfectly, not overcooked which is a typical ruination of this excellent product. Everything was the ultimate of freshness with all preparations showcasing the excellent fish.
Despite being packed on a weekend night, we were asked often if we were happy by the hostess and server. The overall experience surpassed most others in the Naples/Marco area.

I live 7 months out of the year here. This is a new restaurant known for its super fresh seafood. Thought my husband and I would do Valentine's here. Absolutely no complaints about the service, or the appetizers, salads, entrees, or desserts. All DELICIOUS and presented nicely. My one quibble is the hostess was in short shorts and a shirt of blue that matched the waitstaff, all male, and half of whom were In shorts and the same shirt, or in khakis and the same shirt. This place is not cheap. I would put it on the high end on this island both in quality of food and cost. But the staff looked like they were hosting a fish taco snack bar. My thought is with this quality of food and the high prices, I really expected the staff to be dressed accordingly. Just my personal,preference. But don't for a minute let it keep you away from TERRIFIC food! iMHO.
