Fin Bistro is in a new larger restaurant. They have a nice spacious bar. The resultant is well appointed and spacious tables. We have eaten at Fin before and it did not disappoint in the new location. The dishes are served with unique sides that bring out the taste of the fish. We look forward to going back. You do need reservations !!

My Mom and I went to Fins for lunch today and had an amazing meal. We each had the house salad and split the wild salmon flatbread. Both were so good! Price was very reasonable I thought too - $30 with tip. I paid $20 for lunch at Culver’s for us the other day. :). Oh, and we even brought home three slices of flatbread because the portions were very generous. Yum!

Had a great dinner at the new Fin Bistro location. Restaurant is much bigger than the previous location. Seafood preparations are the most creative on the island. And there's more variety of seafood available. We enjoyed grouper served over gnocchi and Key West swordfish served over a bacon wrapped potato cake. Delicious!

This is another one of our core restaurants when we visit Marco Island. They are now located across from the Marriott timeshare property and their sister restaurant which is now out of business.

The interior is very well appointed and there is a full service bar which did not exist at their former location. Kathy is still at the helm running a very crisp operation.
We started with excellent dinner rolls and three spreads … butter, mango and spicy pepper oil. For appetizers it was the octopus salad and crab cakes. There were three octopus legs, each on a yellow beet and gorgonzola cheese on top. It was outstanding. The crab cake was outstanding as well but just a tad too spicy.

For the main course it was the grouper and yellow fin snapper. Both were very good. We ended with the Key lime flan which was excellent as always

It's always great to see you when you're in Marco Island! awe appreciate the kind words on how we do things. Next time, just let us know to ease on the spicy, and we'd be happy to accommodate. Thanks for coming to see us, and we look forward to the next time you're here for another amazing meal.

Fun Bistro in its new location is better than ever. It's a winner on all counts, terrific service, great ambiance, delicious food and homemade fantastic desserts.
The Bibb salad with goat cheese was a winner. The paella special was out of this world and the hog fish was outstanding . For. dessert the dark chocolate truffle cake was a winner as well as the key lime flan.
Don't miss it.
