Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Captiva Island

Posted on

Picture this: A candlelit table, set against the backdrop of dusk as the sun has set. Music drifting between romantic tables inside a historic 100+-year old building. A table set for two. Special delectable entrees designed by the executive chef himself. A bottle of wine between the two of you. And something sweet to share at the end. Yum.

Old Captiva House loves love, and the experts will tell you, there’s no better place to celebrate it than on Captiva Island.

Start your night out by paying respect to the sunset, sitting on the brick porch entrance to Old Captiva House. Then join us inside for the real treats!

This year, choose from two executive chef-selected menu items. A Valentine’s Day favorite, the lobster and crab stuffed, cold water lobster tail is served with a beet risotto cake, white asparagus and citrus butter sauce. Another great choice, the filet of beef is panned seared and top with king crab meat, served on a port demi and bearnaise sauce with Hawaiian purple sweet potatoes and sautéed julienne vegetables with mushrooms. Not in the mood for surf or turf? The outstanding traditional menu is also still available.

Valentine’s Day fills up fast, so if you and your sweetheart want to soak in the romance this year, you’ll want to make your reservations soon. For convenience, Old Captiva accepts reservations online through OpenTable or via phone by called 239.472.5161 x 421 between the hours of 5:30 and 9:30PM.
