Eileen and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with a “Love Lunch” at the Sun Garden on Siesta Key. This was our first time dining here, although the restaurant is within walking distance of our pad right here on beautiful Siesta.

The menu is kept fresh with daily specials.

Most everything is very healthy.

I started my meal with a bowl of Tomato Bisque topped with basil and sunflower seeds. It was very fresh tasting — and not so creamy. This makes for a less fattening experience. Imagine a warm gazpacho and you’ll get the general idea.

Eileen, after some deliberation, ordered the fried shrimp salad. She let me try a shrimp and I was impressed. It was meaty and fried to a nice, crispy texture.

My Yucatan fish taco entree was really tasty. I would strongly urge you to try this if you’re a fish taco aficionado. The grilled mahi-mahi was spiced just right and topped with chopped cilantro and pico de gallo. The accompanying guacamole was super smooth and flavorful.  Squeeze on a little fresh lime juice and you are in business!

Make sure you sit in the patio, where The Sun Garden lives up to its name.
