As usual, food and service were excellent. My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day and despite being very busy, everything was flawless. This is a great restaurant away from the busy sections of 5th Ave and Old Naples.

Loved it! My first visit to The Real Macaw. Food was excellent, the ambiance ideal. The servers were attentive and helpful. There was a positive vibe and patio is dog-friendly.

We waited for about 10 minutes to be seated...which was NOT a problem. We had a reservation, however we chose to be seated at a different table. Menu is interesting, food was fabulous...we all enjoyed our entrees.

Johnny cakes, their signature starter for the table, took 30 minutes to arrive and were raw dough in the middle.....and it went downhill from there. Appetizer and one of 2 entrees were cold and it took nearly an hour to get them. Not the same place we knew and enjoyed years ago. There are better options in Naples for the money.

We enjoy the Real Macaw, but always try to get a table AWAY from the live music. Sometimes that's fun, but when you just want to have good food and good conversation with friends, the music isn't necessarily appreciated. Other than that, the food and ambiance is wonderful. It's got an "island" feel to it.

Food was great, loved the outdoor seating and the live music (not too loud). Owner was very nice, sat us at a great table - was super. Not the usual Naples place for the Octogenarian set.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on January 27, 2018

Everything was great! They had live entertainment, which we weren’t expecting, It was very nice. Tuna Tar Tar was good, Calamari was really good!
2 of us had the Duck, they loved it, the sauce was just perfect. (A little Sweet and fruity very very good) we all tried a piece it was sooooo good. Husband had the Mahi Mahi.... he left the plate clean! I had the filet mignon special, it was 8oz very good just couldn’t finish after the apps but I really tried! All in all, Everything was really great! I would definitely recommend this restaurant, it a great hidden secret. I wouldn’t have found it, if it wasn’t for open table. Great for a fancy dinner with a Caribbean feel. Can be casual or classy. 👍

We will definitely be back on our next visit to Naples!

An interesting restaurant with good food, friendly service, Floridian decor and accommodating staff. While not every dish was outstanding, it was overall very good, fun and festive. I would return and try some of their other specialties. We went on a cold evening in January, therefore there were only two other tables dining.

Another excellent meal. 3 of us had the Mahi Mahi in Phyllo and all 3 raved about it. The other had the 3 Nut encrusted Salmon and she raved about it, as well.

 (Richmond)·Dined on December 24, 2017

The food was very good and the waitress was excellent. Our problem was with our table. For some unknown reason we were seated down an alley leading to the kitchen. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but as this was our first visit, we had no idea of the situation. Why we were seated in such a bad place is a mystery. We were well dressed and make quite a good impression, if I dare say so. It spoiled the evening for my wife, and therefore it spoiled the evening for me, also. Maybe it was because we had booked on Open Table. I'll never know. But this I do know: we own property here and dine out regularly. We won't be back to the Real McCaw. Their action has cost them two customers. Sad

Great service and nice food variety. We ate in the more formal, main dining room but for a more casual, lively ambiance, the bar or outside is also available and was quite lively. Very enjoyable evening with friends.
