Whenever we visit Sanibel Island and Captiva Island, we always get keylime pie at the Keylime Bistro on Captiva Island. The pieces are huge and come with whipped cream and a slice of lime. The multicolored sauce surrounds the pie and is beautiful as well as delicious. The pie is deliriously wonderful. Try it and you'll agree!!

We've been coming to Captiva for 8 years as a family trip and have always wanted to try Key Lime Bistro but never did until this years trip. What a mistake! The menu appears impressive but the food failed to impress us. The fish was over cooked and the pasta soaked in butter and even unpleasant in appearance. Dessert was also pretty to look at but tasted like a frozen dessert and was very dry. When we made reservations for our party of 5 the menu clearly states "18% gratuity included for parties of 5 or more." The food was so awful we did not think 18% gratuity was even justified. As we were driving off, our waitress came running out to our car to tell us the gratuity wasn't included. Essentially, she chased us down for her tip. So rude! We were mortified. Don't eat here or you will be disappointed.

Island pricey ($22 for chicken alfredo pasta!). Enjoyed the live "karaoke-like" music. Go for the pie, it's delicious. Walk to the beach and catch the sunset.

The Keylime Bistro is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I was on Captiva recently for a working vacation and ate there several times. I thought the food and tropical island atmosphere were very good. The menu is varied, the staff is friendly, and the prices are reasonable for a resort area. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, and live music. Make sure to try their famous Keylime pie for dessert, if you have room.

Food was adequate - desserts were great - prices were high. It is a small place with a quaint outdoor patio which we sat at. I can't recall most of what we ate except that dessert was good and I thought I'd probably never go back. Sadly, I probably will, choices on the island are very limited and if you stay long enough you eventually eat everywhere. Next time I'll be smart enough to just come here for dessert (note: we only selected the homemade items and they were all good!)
