We have been eating here for many years and have always found the food to be of a reasonable standard if a little expensive for what it is. (The "ambiance" mentioned by some reviewers only applies to the outdoor eating areas - indoors is soulless)....More

Had a very nice dinner here. The hostess wasn't very friendly and pretty much tossed the menus on the table. I tried to talk with her but she gave a terse answer to a question and walked away. Chalked it up to a bad night...More

We ate at Cip's twice. On both occasions the food and service (George was our waiter) were excellent. The restaurant has a pleasant ambiance. We liked it better than Trader's.

Yes. A gorgeous back patio in a garden and can handle 40 people. We have had many weddings and rehearsal dinners back there. If you look on our website you can see a picture of the spot. Hope to hear from you!

Cip's Place has lush landscaping and wonderful outdoor seating. Its beautifully decorated interior has a large wall mural painted by a local artist who has featured many of the faces of people from Sanibel history. Chef Blaine and his wife Alison are co-owners and come from a long history of food service. The food is great and the locals frequent Cip's and are enjoying it.
