Whether you're vacationing or local, take note:

Mangrove Cafe is the longest existing restaurant on Naples' famed 5th Ave South. 

The discriminating restaurant is known for its quality fresh local seafood, especially their signature dish sweet and Sour Snapper and creative Global Comfort Cuisine.

Mangrove's motto, Think Global, Eat Local, is uniquely presented on its menu and Wine Spectator Award-winning wine list.

      You'll appreciate the flawless service and recognize your server; they've been there for years. The difference maker is that Mangrove Cafe is chef-owned and operated by Doug Amaral and his wife Diane, who personally assure your dining experience is a great one.

    They are leaders in the 2 for 1 special pricing with a free bottle of house wine but, they take it a step further....by including their FULL dinner menu, including a house salad

and run it ALL NIGHT LONG!!

Regulars are comforted by the eclectic yet unpretentious atmosphere and knowing that Doug precisely executes dishes like the Sweet and Sour Snapper and their Veal with wild mushrooms and mango marsala, that have become Mangrove Cafe classics.
