Boatyard Waterfront Grill

With an incomparable view of the Bay area (except of course from the Anchorage itself) The Boatyard Waterfont Grill (formally Coasters) is like 3 restaurants in one. Dine inside in comfortable and elegant surroundings. Or head to the bar area where you have your choice of a complete menu and quick access to a cocktail. Or ask to be seated on the outdoor deck, where you can dine right upon the Intercoastal.

<a href="">Miguels</a>


Promoting itself as serving French continental cuisine, Miguel's has be included in the list of best restaurants on Siesta Key (along with Gabbiano's and Ophelia's). While French cuisine is the theme, the menu is a little more complex than that. As the menu explains, the founder is a Spaniard with formal training in French cuisine. The menu reflects this fusion of Spanish and French. Reservations are a good idea. There is no outdoor seating, so this is a good one to keep in your pocket for a rainy or cold evening.


Javier's is a Peruvian restaurant located in the same strip mall as Miguel's and City Pizza. Like Miguel's, reservations are probably a good idea. Also like Miguel's, Javier's does not have outdoor seating, so it is a great destination on a cold or wet night. The food is excellent as is the service. Tapas is the focus of the menu, so the opportunity is great to try a cross section of geniune Peruvian food in a single sitting. Our first visit, we did not have reservations and ended up sitting at the tiny bar, which was great. Javier was busy, but had a minute here and there to chat with us. Javier is from Peru, emigrating years ago. So you know the food is authentic and the owner is actively engaged in the restaurant - always a good sign for a quality meal.
