Hubs and I had delightful dinner on the patio of the Blue Giraffe. Food was delicious, service perfect and prices reasonable. It’s tucked back in the corner of the Periwinkle Place Shopping Center. Find it and enjoy while on the wonderful Sanibel Island.

I don't normally like to eat in restaurants associated with a shopping center. However, this is an exception. The shopping area is quaint and the restaurant sets in the middle of the shops. I've eaten there twice recently and the food was delicious, the wait...More

A whimsical decor, friendly staff, and decent food. Not one of my Top 3 on Sanibel, but it's a decent place to eat and that's good enough for us to visit at least once every time we're on-island.

The Blue Giraffe is the place to experience casual island dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week from 7am to close. Dine outside in the garden atmosphere of Periwinkle Place or inside at hand-painted tables, inspired by local artists. Our wide-ranging menu is full of fresh and local seafood, island-renowned chowders, custom sandwiches and burgers, refreshing salads, mouth-watering steak and vegetarian options. Unwind at our full liquor bar, sipping on a glass of wine, a frosty draft, bottled beer or one of our signature frozen drinks. As for dessert, indulge in hand-dipped Edy's Grand Ice Cream, or a rich cappuccino. You won't be able to get enough of our delicious island-inspired food, all in a friendly, tropical setting.
