“Great service and personnel”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I love the Keylime Bistro....great service of a wide array of food choices. But, the best part of the Keylime Bistro is the personnel. We would have a drink at the bar after dinner and really enjoyed talking to the bartenders.They were very helpful with suggestions for sightseeing and sharing their insights on Captiva life. Andy, the manager is a gem. He was most congenial and made you feel right at home. We were2 single ladies traveling and sometimes the "vibe" at a restaurant is not very welcoming. That is certainly not the case at the Keylime Bistro. Don't miss this gem and enjoy the conversations and laughs.

“Great food in a great location”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We made reservations here because we wanted to walk to eat from the beach, which means the atmosphere is laid back enough for people that have been on the beach all day. Had the paella and tried the key lime pie. Both were good, although I've had better key lime. We sat outdoors by the misters. There was a guy playing music occasionally. Only negative, parking is bad. We watched people drive around for a long time looking for a spot. Great location otherwise. Would go here again.

Priced similar to Sunshine seafood but much lower quality of food. Service is good. Entertainment is nice.

“Strange Food”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Unlike the other restaurants owned by this group, this one is a failure....nice drinks, but the food interpretation is strange. Go to RC Otters instead....grab a drink at this bar but don't eat here for dinner.

“Great Menu”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I loved this restaurant with outdoor seating. You get to see the people walking up and down the old town. The Items on the menu are wonderful and all good. Very reasonable prices. The service is very good with attentive staff.
