The food was amazing but more expensive then we thought...in the range of $45/50 per person. Anyways I don't have problem paying when the food is great. And this is the case here at Sunshine Seafood Cafe. All the choices were great. It's highly recommended.

Cheers

For Captiva this restaurant is great --- creative specials, and wood fired meats. The cabbage vegetable side is unique and addictive. Wine selection is OK. A very nice break from the standards on the island.

We have been visiting Sanibel-Captiva for over 10 years now and did not come across this place until our last visit. While it is expensive for dinner, we had an excellent meal. It is a small place with mostly outside seating, but there are plenty of fans/misters in place and it was delightful to sit outside on their covered porch. Everything was delicious from the apps (amazing bread and a scallop/shrimp app w/red sauce), dinner (goat cheese salad w/blackened chicken and fresh cobia for my husband) to dessert (unbelievable chocolate covered cheesecake). Also a great wine list - we will be back!

Ordered the goat cheese salad which was nice (not outstanding), 2 kids had mac and cheese and hubby had pasta special. Had the shrimp cocktail which was just "eh". Walked away spending over $75.

The service and the food was mediocre at best despite the reviews. We did not have drinks or appetizers and the bill was over $80.00 for the two of us. Not worth it!
