Mar Vista is top area restaurant we recommend you try during your stay with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals27.438199, -82.681307 – 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217. A sister restaurant to the Beach House Restaurant which is on Bradenton Beach, Mar Vista is located at the North end of Longboat Key, about a 5 minute drive from our condos. It is perfectly placed right on the bay side overlooking Sarasota Bay with its recently renovated 14 slip private boat dock. There is ample seating inside the rustic dining room, on the covered outdoor deck or under the canopy of ancient Buttonwood trees. You will enjoy a creative menu with a selection of fresh local seafood, farm to fork produce right from their own farm and pasture to plate land fare. As well, many of their own breads are baked on site. They offer a full bar and an extensive wine list. Terry’s favourite is the Brussel Sprouts appetizer and the Mar Vista Burger. While I usually order the crab cakes or Cobb salad, both are equally delicious!
Mar Vista was recently awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award. Since 2011 when TripAdvisor began handing out this award, Mar Vista has been recognized each and every year. Once you have experience Mar Vista dining I think you will understand why.
We love the excellent food, great service and the ambiance of dining outside under the trees and are certain you will too.

  1. Had a great dinner of fresh seafood while sitting outside.
Lauren was a wonderfull waitress!!
Great location right on the water. It was nice to take a stroll after a filling meal.
