During certain promotional periods, Island Cafe offers delicious main course dinners which include an appetizer and a desert. You only pay the main course's price. Not only you will enjoy consistent good quality of food, but also good service and ambience.

Very good French Cuisine, not too much American influence. Extensive wine list and very professional service. The duck is certainly worth the money and our friends were equally pleased with their choices. Definitely one of the better Marco Island restaurants.

Was on Marco Island for a couple of weeks and visited the island cafe on two separate occasions with two different sets of guests. We love this place, It is very homely and warm and inviting. The staff are really lovely. The food is French style European continental and is always served perfectly. We have genuinely never had a complaint with this place. The early bird has a really good deal paying only for a main course, but receiving a starter and a desert all inclusive.
Full price à la cart is still good value. We love the baked crêpe as an appetiser and also the crispy duck and the fillet mignon and the fish maincourses. All come with their own veg, there is no extra charge for sides of vegetables. Although not a huge menu everything yourself really well and nicely timed and the wine list is not expensive. The ice cream sundaes are to die for. You will go again and again. Enjoy!

Each time we visit Marco we always make it a point to have a lovely dinner at the Island Café. It's an unassuming gem in a little strip mall, but don't let that fool you. Cloth table linens and first class service with delicious, well-prepared food. Not a t-shirt joint, somewhere to go to have a nice experience. My husband wears shorts, but does put on a collared shirt. We go in May and get there before 5:30 for a terrific early bird special that is a great value. Only wine and beer are served, but nothing wrong with a nice glass of wine with dinner, or a good cold beer for that matter. It's small, so make reservations.

Came early for a quick dinner, and we were the first people there. When asked if we had a reservation (3of us) we explained that no we didn't but promised we could eat and leave within the hour, we were actually shown the door! It was just a very uncomfortable experience and after reading some reviews it seems we aren't the only ones that this has happened to. I'm sure it was the owner who greeted us as well. We really left feeling "less than"
