Eating out in Cape Coral can be a great experience. Of course there are the chain restaurants - but you can't beat our local food houses. Our current favorite is the Le Corte - but we always go to Rum Runners & Ariani's (the best Italian) when we are in the Cape. Downtown Ft Myers & the River district also offer many great eating experiences. If you like a great hamburger try Ford's Garage just after you come over the Cape Coral Bridge.

Slate's is the newest addition to the long and lustrous restaurant career of Chefs and owners, Allan and Nancy Cotter. "Retiring" to Southwest Florida in 2010 from the island of St Croix in the US Virgin Islands, the Chefs Cotter soon found themselves quite disillusioned with all the free time retirement gave them. Missing their passion for creating exquisite food featuring their much-heralded signature Cajun and Caribbean-infused dishes, the Cotters set about the task of creating Slate?s. Their vision was to create a casual, fine dining experience that simultaneously evokes a feeling of pure enjoyment for friends and patrons.
