Description: Enjoy gorgeous fountain and lake views from the screened porch of this Florida inspired seafood restaurant. Jutting out over the water, Tarpon Bay has a beach cottage vibe, where colorful lanterns keep watch over each table and a palette of soft turquoise and creamy beige complement the lush gardens just beyond our doors. Our chef infuses the freshest seafood with innovative combinations of herbs and spices for a truly memorable meal, designed to match the fresh and lively scenery. Find a seat at the inviting bar for a drink, while enjoying fantastic live music on Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday mornings. You'll be in for a truly memorable experience.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday and had a perfectly delightful time. Our stay included four adults and two children. The rooms were commodious, the service warm and accommodating, and with a magnificent swimming pool and easy access to a private beach one cannot ask for more enjoyable activities for adults and children. We eagerly look forward to our next visit.

We recently returned from a family vacation at the Hyatt in Bonita Springs. We were relaxing and also celebrating our daughter's high school graduation and birthday. Seven us had a wonderful meal at Tarpon Bay.

When we arrived a few minutes before our reservation, we were told that a large party just left and if we would be willing to wait a few minutes we could have their table. It was in a beautiful glass atrium-like room with three walls of windows and open to the rest of the dining room by a large door. (Perhaps double doors, I can't remember.) We had a large, round table which we always love and is conducive to family time and conversation, and enjoyed nice, tropical views.

The food is delicious, albeit a bit pricey, but what made the meal so special and memorable was our wonderful waitress, Lisa. She was a perfect ten in every way. We plan on returning in August and asking for her. All of our children commented on how great she was.

I have had the ceviche there twice and it is simply fabulous!! So fresh and quite a variety. I love that you can get small samplings of many different kinds. All the kids raved about the salmon and especially loved the delicious and unique sauces offered with the fish entries. Lisa was very generous and let the kids try numerous sauces. We also enjoyed grouper and snapper that night. Lisa surprised our daughter with a special birthday/graduation celebration dessert with the occasions written in chocolate! Topped off a marvelous evening. Thank you again, Lisa!

Nice looking place with a Key West vibe. the food is tremendously lacking in creativity. What the food sacrifices in flavor, it makes up for, and then some, in high prices. would not recommend dining here.
