Key Lime Bistro draws a crowd as do most restaurants on the island. There is music on the patio and ample seating outside. We sat indoors this time and is was very noisy. Service is ok. Good is consistently good and fresh. Key lime pie is a favorite (obviously).

I ordered the Loco Risotto (entre $24). I was disappointed by the dish, which was obviously not made to order (not even close to made to order). The creme brulee was cold, except for the thin sugar crust torched over prior to serving. The server was not attentive and she did not seem to be able to offer the slightess bit of warmth or welcoming. There was a high light to the meal. One daughter ordered the Apple Pie with Ice cream. The apple pie source is to be commended; the pie was delicious, fresh, and not "manufactured". The food is over-priced for the level of mediocredity it offers. RC Otters (across the street) will not offer the look of the Key Lime Bistro, but it is superior in freshness, value and authentic Florida fare.

Dinner at the Key Lime Bistro was ok. Great atmosphere and servers, but the food was only fair. As many resort area restaurants, prices a bit inflated. There are better dining spots in Captiva.

Great food, good pricing considering its an island. Breakfast was excellent as well.
Fresh squeezed OJ was great, but we are in Florida.

Fish was wonderful freshon my first visit. Because the food was so good we decided to return for lunch the next day. My fish was not fresh and fishy tasting. The nasty manager insisted otherwise but my taste buds told me otherwise. Very very dissapointed.
