I have been a lurker on here for some time & always enjoy & respect the lively debate on the Naples/Ft Myers/Cape Coral dining scene. I have a special birthday coming up & want to go somewhere with a nice view and good food. I was thinking Sanibel as maybe the way to go but don't know the dining scene there that well. Been to Traders a couple of times (last visit was quite dreadful & not a patch on what I'd previously enjoyed). Enjoyed a couple of visits to the Twilight Cafe at their newer location. But I am wondering is there anything better?
I have eaten at the Bayfront Bistro on Ft Myers Beach which you would think may tick the box but for me it didn't. Lovely view but I felt the food was over-rated & expensive for for what you got. I don't have a problem for paying for high quality food but particularly the Truffle Manchego Fries were a huge disappointment and really let the kitchen down.
Any pointers from fellow Chowhounds would be most appreciated!
