Captiva Island Restaurant Sunshine Seafood


Great news… After over a year of renovations due to Hurricane Ian, Sunshine Seafood Cafe, located in Captiva Village Square, is NOW OPEN!

We also have a new chef… Ryan Kida, former Chef-Owner of Yabo, has joined our team. And, while we still have the tried and true Sunshine Seafood favorites on our menu, we have added some of Ryan’s delectable recipes to our menu choices. (His bolognese sauce is the best!)
