Besides the magnificent coastline I can't think of a better reason to go to northeast Florida than Cap's on the Water. It sits between Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine on A1A and is short ride from either. Several years ago when my husband, daughter and I were exploring the region I fell in love with this restaurant (and raw bar). The beautiful intracoastal waterway view from this old fish camp is enough to stir you but the wood deck punctured by dozens of oak trees, the hanging lanterns and the gentle waves lapping the shore make for a magical setting.
As soon as I started the blog I knew I'd have to post about Cap's one day. My favorite kind of restaurants are the ones that evoke a sense of romance without pretense or formality. The kind of places where you want to linger - where the wine and the laughter flow in the company of good friends. Cap's is just such a place. When you're there you feel peaceful, relaxed, comfortable. The food is just a huge bonus.
