My husband and I visit KLB every year we visit Florida. We are never disappointed. The food is always excellent and the key lime pie is to die for! Don't miss it!

Not only is the view great, looking out onto Pine Island Sound, the food was excellent. Service very nice, and no wait if you come around 7.00 during the week. They don't take reservations. If you're in Captiva, you should try it.

Definitely one of the best places to eat in Captiva. This is an Italian restaurant, with a focus on excellent seafood. Prices are reasonable for the quality. Great water views too!

In the women's bathroom is the figure of a man who appears to be peeing. In the men's bathroom we have a one-way mirror on the bar. And, ridiculously enough, a fully decked out table for two with tablecloth, place settings, flowers, candle, etc. If all that weren't enough, the fresh fish and lovely dishes make this a very popular...

We went at lunch time to book for a couple of evenings ahead. They would not allocate a table but reluctantly took a booking. Lunchtime was full and nice views. Evening, 7.45 it was empty apart from 2 tables, unsure if Americans eat at 'nursing home' time. Chose a table while we had a drink, only one table occupied now.... More

We enjoyed lunch multiple times here on our visit to the island. The setting provides a comfortable and relaxing dining experience. If you are lucky you may even catch sight of a dolphin surfacing or jumping in the bay. There is great variety on the menu and the staff aims to please. There isn't a bad table in the place!

The Green Flash Restaurant is one of the best waterfront restaurants on Sanibel & Captiva. One of our favorite restaurants on Sanibel/Captiva. It's almost to the very top of the island. Great views of Pine Island and some of the smaller islands. Small boat dock available. Our favorite is "The Green Flash Club Sandwich" Staff is very friendly and accomodating.... More

Visited with relatives, their first visit to the Green Flash. Everyone ordered something different and all had delicious meals. We have been coming to the Green Flash on all our visits and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend.

It was a beautiful day for a ride when we spotted the Green Flash, looked like a nice place. Right on the water. Service warm quick and professional and the food was delicioius, as we watched the dolfins and manatees off the dock it made for a great afternoon.
