01 Dec 6 Restaurants You Need to Try in Bonita Springs and Naples
Whether you’re living it up on vacation or just looking for a new date night spot, it’s always nice to have some insider knowledge into the local foodie scene. The Bonita Springs and Naples area is packed with plenty of restaurants that offer delicious cuisine and incredible atmospheres. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, why not try one of these Southwest Florida restaurants?
1. Mediterrano | Naples, FL
With an extensive wine list and excellent service, Mediterrano promises its diners a taste of the Mediterranean (and it delivers). The menu boasts a coastal approach on dishes from countries like Spain, Italy, Greece, and Morocco. And if their delicious modern European cuisine isn’t enough to entice you, their downtown Naples location should do the trick. Browse their website and take a look at their menu – though we recommend the paella!
2. Wyld’s Café | Bonita Springs, FL
Don’t let the location fool you. Tucked into a beige strip mall along busy Bonita Beach Road, Wyld’s can be easy to miss. But it’s certainly not a place you want to drive passed! And once you walk through the door, the décor will draw you in with its carefully cultivated style and displays of works by local artists. The restaurant is the perfect balance of casual and elegant, offering delicious seafood and modern American cuisine. Reservations are definitely recommended for this popular spot!
3. Fuse Global Cuisine | Naples, FL
As inferred by the name, Fuse Global Cuisine offers an unusual menu with dishes that have been infused with flavors and ingredients from around the world. The restaurant’s website describes it as a “culmination of a 20 year journey of exploration in cuisine” and just one bite is all the evidence you need! Their eclectic and diverse menu plays with flavors and textures to create an unforgettable dining experience. Go ahead and see for yourself!
4. The Lake House Bar & Grill | Bonita Springs, FL
Looking for something a little more casual? The Lake House Bar & Grill (located at the Trianon Bonita Bay Hotel) is perfect for every dining occasion – from business lunches to family get-togethers to a romantic dinner for two. They provide an open air environment and sit lakeside, for added ambience. Locals and tourists alike flock to the restaurant for their generous portions, fresh seafood, and friendly staff. If you’re lucky, you’ll even spot an alligator!
