We requested an outside table as we are presently only going to restaurants with outdoor seating. Lovely table in the courtyard. The wait staff all wore masks and gloves which was appreciated. The service was prompt and the food was well prepared and delicious. Unfortunately a heavy rain started during dinner but we were promptly moved inside to a room that we had completely to ourselves so we still felt safe. Totally enjoyed the evening despite the downpour and we will definitely return
Wonderful hidden gem away from the noise and overpriced area of 5th Ave and 3rd St.
The food and service on the restaurant part are in league with downtown in quality and preparation but the prices are more reasonable. The wine list is the same--good in quality, better in price, but is somewhat limited. Maybe because of the times.
When the weather is nicer and the bar can open, I bet this is delightful happy hour spot.
I recommend you try it.
The feel was casual and not hurried.
We will go back!
A great accidental find relaxing quiet off beaten path. Food was great, will be back for sure!
Great food and service. Wonderful music. Felt transported to the Keys, if only for a few hours!
A hidden gem in Naples,Florida it reminded me of key west and great music !
Cute courtyard. Terrific food and enjoyed the live music.
Great restaurant with Caribbean feel. The duck entree was prepared with a delicious rum sauce. Would definitely recommend
Our first time to this lovely Carribean themed restaurant. Linda our server was outstanding, giving great recommendations like the delicious salmon dinner!! Tuna was also excellent!! Definitely a great find!!!
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with out of town guests and everyone’s meals were fantastic!
The RM never disappoints. Service and food good and atmosphere special. It’s a special Naples dining experience and should be a destination!
It took us a long time to get our food and even to put in our order. One person had the steak and he said it was the greasiest he’d ever had and was up most of the night.
Have not been back in 5 years. Sold the condo after my husbands death. Was a guest of a friend who was very impressed and plans to surprise her kids when they come to visit. Thank you for still being there!
A hidden gem. The best calamari and tuna I’ve had. Service has greatly improved
My husband and I always enjoy our experience at The Real Macaw. This last time, we brought 2 of our friends for dinner. They absolutely loved both the delicious food as well as the ambience. We had another special evening there. Thank you!
This is a funky, fun place. I really like the Carribbean feel.
Amazing food! Great ambiance and CASEY OUR SERVER, was just a joy and always makes us feel so welcome! We adore This restaurant!❤️
Fun and pleasant place to dine.
Solid food, great service and a pleasure to see the owner keeping an eye on the
program....Let's do it again.
It was totally fabulous!!
We’ve eaten at the Real McCaw numerous times. You can count on it! Never disappointed.
Great service and food. Our server Mary Jo was spectacular. Everyone was very friendly. Highly recommend. Chocolate pie was a favorite dessert
Waited a very long time for food. Server did her best. Fault of kitchen. Mashed potatoes were part of the sea bass dish which 3 of us ordered. No one got the potatoes . We were so late eating he did not mention to server.
Overall very disappointing
Wait staff very attentive & accomodating for Party of 8. Live musicians. Nice outdoor seating
Waited 30minutes past our reservation time in a congested walkway with servers passing and two hungry children. Staff was apologetic but did not offer a drink or desert to make up for our extended wait. Food was inconsistent- some very good other dishes bland or fatty. This place would be better off season - they really can’t manage crowds and even ran out of bread for tables.
It wasn't the servers fault, she was great. The entire restaurant was backed up as though they weren't expecting a crowd: Feb, in Naples. We waited for our dinner for 1.5 hours. We asked for bread (usu they bring Johnny Cakes) to hold us over while we had our wine and waited, but it never came after many pleasant requests. -To make matters worse, as they were rushing around, there was a heat lamp not being used in the rows between the tables, just making a further a obstacle for the waiters. It was poetic in that is how the entire restaurant was being run (at least that night). Food was good; I can have good food at home.
We did have a great meal with the exception of my wife finding a piece of metal in her key lime pie. Our Server promptly removed the item from our bill but it was disappointing. It was not a small piece of aluminum that might have come from a pie tin but was instead a rather long, twisted piece of metal. We had four in our party and everyone had something different. The Down Island chicken is a great Low Country inspired dish with a large piece of chicken, kielbasa and shrimp with a red wine cream reduction that was perfect. I don't usually have dessert but I love coconut and they had a coconut and guava bread pudding which was outstanding. I do wish they had a larger beer selection. With so many great crafts in the area it's nice to see local restaurants carrying them.
The food was very good, as always. The service was great considering that this is high season and all restaurants are understaffed this time of year. The ambiance is great. The wine list includes very drinkable, reasonably priced selections. My suggestion is to add a bus staff to clear plates and pour water, etc. Also, please move the hostess stand to an entrance rather than the current location in the middle of the tables/restaurant/kitchen pinch point.
A nice evening. Service and food were excellent.
Our reservation was for 8:15; we got in at 9:00. Need a better waiting area standing ontop of diners. They neec better organization .
We had such a great time! I've always wanted to try the restaurant and I'm so glad we finally did. The food, service and entertainment were awesome! We will definitely be back!
Thank you Joyce for making this a great evening
Valentines dinner so very busy and not expecting a bit of slower service. Food was outstanding, salmon and duck.
Always enjoy our time here and try to lure Joyce from the Irish pub in Massachusetts to work here in Naples
Great menu and David gave us excellent service.
The salmon was amazing, as was the dark chocolate gelato!
took out of town guest for the "real florida experience". Service was atrocious, food was cold, put us in an overflow room with no ambiance. We won't likely go back until season is over. They clearly had issues with staffing and kitchen.
Our party of six dined here on a Saturday evening. We were seated in the outdoor patio area where a solo artist performed. The setting and music was very good. Service was very slow; however, the music and ambiance made the wait more palatable. All in our party enjoyed their meals.
The Real McCaw is one of Naples hidden gems. When you arrive your first impression is “ I may have made a mistake”. Once you enter the restaurant the bar charm is apparent and the actual indoor eating area is quite bright, colorful and charming. Menus for drinks and food is varied, both excellent. A must is the Caribbean Duck. Will ALWAYS visit when in Naples.
Love the ambiance at Real Macaw!!
Our server, Harrison, was incredibly well-versed on every menu item and truly knew his stuff.
Food was fabulous (steak & salmon).
The funky, fun outdoor dining is a fun part of the experience. There were 2 heaters going so we were very comfortable. Live music was entertaining, but just a bit too loud to easily carry a conversation.
Always a great dining experience.
Missed seeing you Jeanie.
