From the outside the building doesn't show much and it is sort of hard to find for the first time. The food is worth finding the restaurant though. Exquisite Italian food (love the mussels). Friendly atmosphere, great wait staff. I don't mind waiting for my food when it is this good!

This restaurant is phenomenal! I travel to the area once a month and always try to have at least one meal there during my stay. Usually I'm solo which is never an issue. The owner tipped me off to the counter and bar stools set up by the kitchen. It allows a solo diner a chance to watch the kitchen... More

Really good Italian food with a nice selection of beer and wine. Very friendly staff and owners. Not overly fancy or too pricy.

Tradewinds is very much a "locals" restaurant. Service is slow but friendly, so be prepared to wait extra long for your food. There is very little signage and haphazard parking when you get there. Make sure you ask for the dressing on the side, since your salad will be smothered otherwise. The crab cakes were very good, but the side... More

Mussels are out of this world! Putanesca is really yummy! Large portions. On previous visits the exhaust system wasn't the best. My clothes would smell of garlic when I left the restaurant! Exhaust system is better now!

We were visiting the Destin area and asked a friend for a good Italian restaurant and Tradewinds was the recommendation. Our meals were well prepared and well served. They are very popular and the seating area is small so make reservations. We got caught in Destin traffic and called ahead and they held our table for us. We will definitely... More

The food is excellent the only down side is the restaurant is small, you must make reservations and the acoustics are not great so it's pretty loud.

You're never disappointed after a meal at Tradewinds. And you never go away hungry. My favorite is to share a bowl of mussels with my husband, along with the wonderful fresh bread and olive oil dip as an "appetizer". Trouble is after so much of that, you can't do justice to a full meal. So we split a main course---sometimes.... More

This place is the epitome of local Niceville cuisine. It is a "hole in the wall" but that is its charm and it is what locals here like. I have eaten there numerous times, they know me by name. The food is first rate and the prices are great. I love getting the Quattro fummatgio pizza with pepperoni. It is... More
