    The Scottish Salmon was wonderful. Everyone in our group said their meal was delicious particularly the seafood chowder. Desmond took good care of us and was very known about the menu. We have already made plans to return!

    Great ambience and wonderful food. Love the eclectic island vibe and relaxed mood. We sat outside. Hot June evening, but the owners were very attentive regarding the heat and made sure that there the fans had the air moving to keep everyone comfortable at their tables. The live music was excellent. My only disappointment was that the entree was brought out while we were still eating our salads. Probably just a slight miscalculation on timing since the evening didn’t feel otherwise rushed. Will definitely return if we are back in Naples.

    As always, the food was amazing. The music was good and the fact that they supported PRIDE made it all more exceptional.

    We arrived hoping to celebrate Gay Pride with other gays. Instead we were ushered into a back area with no air circulation or fans and only one other table was occupied. When we were ready to go, we were presented with a check for the other table that was in our area. Otherwise, the service was OK.
    The Real MacawResponded on June 8, 2024
    Hi Franklin, You rated the food, service, and value higher than a one star yet left a one star review, sounds like based on seating not being ideal? Had it mentioned on the reservation a preference for inside/AC we would've done our best to accommodate. In absence of that, people are seated according to availability, as with other restaurants. As you mentioned, last night was the kick-off to pride and we had a full house. We turned people away due to being full, getting a table was a feat! We did get a lot of no shows which is likely why you ended up in an area that wasn't totally full. The intention of the night was for a seated dinner with a show, not a packed party. I'm sorry if that didn't align with your expectations, the other parties this weekend may be more what you're looking for.

    One of the worst experiences I have encountered. Reserving a table and having to be told to move by the server who was told by the owner/management because of lack of tables and organization. Food wasn’t that great for the price.
    The Real MacawResponded on June 8, 2024
    Surprised to see this as we extended every hospitality. I know this table because I made sure you personally were taken care of. You reserved for three people when we were fully booked, sat at a four person table, waited to order for your friends to arrive, then eventually ordered for one as the rest of your party did not show. You enjoyed a full meal there (we did not rush you), then said you wanted sit after completing your meal, beyond two hours for a single person at a four top when the table was to be used for other reservations. We took a drink off your check and offered to buy you another cocktail if you wanted to move to the bar (5 feet from your table). Any reasonable person would've made the move on their own or at the very least been understanding given the special event. -Owner

    Found this little gem and we chose it because it was dog friendly although we did not take our dog after all. I was excited the minute we pulled up. It was a very Key West like environment. Bright ,happy tropical colors, cobalt blue glasses on all the tables just really sweet and quaint and relaxing. They have indoor and outdoor seating we chose outdoors. They also have a bar area. The bartender and drinks and wait staff were very friendly. Attentive, but not intrusive, professional but laid-back. we specifically went for the Tuesday. Buy one get one free swordfish meal and it was amazing. It certainly did not disappoint. Then we shared a chocolate cheesecake dessert that was to die for we will be back. Hope to see you there!
