Visiting here was on my short list of things to do while in Ft. Myers Beach since I had such a great experience the last time I was in town. I was not disappointed. Both of our meals were so tasty and the service was great.

Somehow on our trips to FMB we end up at the Bayfront for lunches instead of dinners. Maybe because those lunches are so delicious in such a calm, casually-elegant atmosphere, with excellent servers. Oh...and that million dollar view of the bay! The lunch menu is limited, but don't worry, you will have a wonderful meal! You start with a very... More

A local super market was only three blocks from our condo/rental. While shopping there, we saw a restaurant/marina adjacent to the super market. It is the Bayfront Bistro at the Snook Bight Marina. We decided to take a look. Wow, what a beautiful restaurant and property. We had brunch the next day and I can't say how delightful it was... More

After a leisurely boat tour of Estero island , my wife and I stopped in the Bistro for brunch . We were pleasantly surprised with the service and meal. The food was served quickly and at the right temperature . Even the plates were heated, something you can only wish for at most restaurants. Stop in for your surprise .

It was our first visit at Bayfront Bistro with friends; it's for sure not the last!!! The kitchen is flexible what's very unusual here. I have a garlic allergy and most of the time, restaurants are unable or unwilling to make fresh dishes without garlic. Bayfront Bistro did - thank you !!!

We visited three times in one week. All visits we're at the outside area by the marina. Lunch one day, cocktails another, one evening we dined outside with friends. Food good, drinks were fine, service and attitude of staff was fabulous. The setting can't be beat, you are right on the water and the coming and going boaters is fun... More

We went to Bayfront for dinner and the patio was such a great spot to spend an evening! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and looked after us well. The food was very good - some of us enjoyed ours more than others - but it was a beautiful place to sit and enjoy an evening.

The wait was beyond the ridiculous. It took 3 hours for 4 adults and 2 children to order, eat and leave. The only good thing was that we ordered food early for the kids, and then they entertained themselves with the crayons and paper menu provided to them. I was also disappointed in my food. The cost of my plate... More
