Anniversary Dinner?

My husband and I will be spending an overnite at the Song of the Sea this October to celebrate our 39th anniversary. We'd like to have dinner at a relaxed and cozy spot with good food. Can you see the sunset at any of the nicer restaurants ( or in Captiva ) or at a spot nearby? Any suggestions for a nice romantic restaurant with good food either in Sanibel or Captiva? Would the Sea Star restaurant next door to the Song of the Sea be nice for an anniversary dinner? Any tips for somewhere later in the evening for casual music or piano bar? Thanks for your help.

Mad Hatter on Captiva has been recommended for a special occasion. It is pricey, but a small intimate setting I hear and good food. Make reservations for a window seat to watch the sunset.

We love the Mad Hatter and that would be my suggestion. Make reservations because it is popular with locals and tourist.

Thistle Lodge (Beachfront dining in historic 19th century mansion, located within CasaYbel Resort on West Gulf Drive offers the prettiest restaurant on the Island with the most ambiance. Very $$$ and the menu is upscale and chef-fy. I love it but you may want to read some reviews on it and see what others have to say. Perfect for a special occasion. Great Sunsets.

If neither of the above suit (both are good choices) also consider Sunset Grill in Santiva. Not beachfront but across from the beach. We time it to watch sunset and then go across the street to have a very nice dinner.
