The only complaint....we made reservations for a window table for 4.....two days prior , however, although restaurant was not very busy.....every table at window was taken. Our waiter was very accommodating and within a short time he did move us to a table that became available.

The restaurant is done up very well, you can’t beat the location. Service was excellent and had a chilled and relaxed vibe. But the food was crap.
We ordered the Asian grouper and fish and chips. Small portions and they both were very very bland. I couldn’t tell the cauliflower purée from cream. Loads of bones in the grouper and burnt fries with the fish and chips. Typical fort myers beach food.
I don’t mind paying for a quality meal but hear we just felt over charged for something we could have gotten from long John silvers.

The staff are excellently trained and their interest in your experience is genuine. The food was great. The bar is a little skimpy with the drinks - especially for the price. It is very noisy and was a little hard to carry on a conversation but Coste is definitely worth the reservation. As before, we will be back.

Picked this restaurant because it was recommended by an acquaintance for my dad’s 80th birthday.

Rolls that were served were stale. Big disappointment as it was the first taste at the table. (This is why I gave them a 3 stars instead of four stars.)

The service was outstanding between our waiter Efka and the manager Janet who stopped by twice. The NY strip steaks were tender and cooked to order. The beet goat salad was wonderful and portion size was appropriate. The red snapper was fresh and they prepped it gluten free as requested. The short rib was braised nicely but salty. Seafood chowder had good flavor.

The sides were not outstanding and portion size was small. The twice baked potato was tiny and looked and tasted like it had been prepared that afternoon.

They offer a $35 pre fixe menu which is a great deal if you like what’s on the menu! They had a $20 coupon in the paper if you ordered two full price dinner items.

View was spectacular of the beach. Ambience was right on.

They brought out a complimentary dessert which was great.

I’d return and give them another try.

I don’t write a lot of reviews so when I do, it’s because my experience was exceptional. Costa Island Cuisine was one of those pleasant surprises in a rather unexpected location — a small hotel on the beach. But don’t let that scare you away — it is worth the visit!

First of all, the ambiance and decor is contemporary, but very tasteful. Of course the large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico only enhance the dining experience. I mean, is there anything better than a martini at sunset! The service was very good and attentive without being overdone.

But the real star of the show is the food. I had what I consider one of the most flavorful and perfect preparations of grouper I have ever had (and I am a bit of a fish snob). My wife had the salmon which was also wonderfully prepared. I was so impressed, I had to compliment the chef personally after dinner. A young, gracious and creative chef!

Bravo!
