Restaurant recommendations please

Hi we are in the Englewood area from 26th March and would like to find some recommendations for seafood/fish restaurants, or just plain good food!

Not looking for anything too fancy or high budget on our last visit we went to Farlows and enjoyed that.

We also haven't eaten out at Boca Grande so any ideas for a trip there would be welcome too.

We will be heading up to Sarasota area/Bradenton/Anna Maria where we used to holiday many years ago quite regularly just to look around. Any of your favourites up this way

Many thanks

Englewood, Florida

Mango Bistro on Dearborn Street in Old Englewood Village. The Cubanos are fantastic! It's a bit of old Florida with cool shops on the street. My wife and I just bought a home in the neighborhood we love it. (Sorry I forgot I already recommended it.)

my opinion, of course:

Best: I think you will be happy if you go and or take your guests to (in no particular order):

Nicola's (Italian, Northern Italian, on occasion very good German),

Ephesus (Mediterranean), Zeke's (Modern, American, eclectic),

Farlow's (Caribbean, Southern),

Gulf View Grill (Seafood, American),

Lock n Key,

Bay Point Grille (American, Italian),

Howard's (amazing salad bar, American).

A Better Scoop (Ice Cream).

Category 2:

Worth a try to see if you like it: Noy's (Thai), Koo's Kitchen (Chinese Take out), White Elephant Pub (casual outdoor Fl. Food & pub), Mama's (Italian), Good Times (diner, Mexican), Paradiso, Nando's, The Sno Queen, Landy's, Maria's, Lakeview (Greek, other)

Disappointing or overrated, I personally wouldn't bring my out of town guests to:

Mango Bistro

Beef O'Brady's

Hi Amanx,

Thanks. We will be back in two weeks! staying on Rotonda West again, so looking for some suggestions (will look into those above) we will have grandchildren aged 17mths and 6yrs and DD and DSiL so any ideas on things to do or places to go. Any other restaurants to try? Boca Grande? We haven't been to Rhum Cay is it worth it?

Thank you to everyone for their suggestions too.

We like Steak, Mexican, Thai, most food really! the children eat everything ….. any good ice cream shops?

We will also be heading up to AMI which is where we used to go (for 11yrs) when our own children were small! so will hope to revisit some old favourites too.

Thank you .
