Outdoor dining and tiki bar at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort.


Bury your toes-in-the-sand at one of the best Naples restaurants on the beach - BALEEN.

BALEEN overlooks the beach with a few of our tables directly on the sand.
Palate pleasing options include a varied breakfast menu with a Gulf Coast twist on traditional favorites, such as the crab oscar Benedict or the braised brisket and eggs with scallion potato cake and tomato hollandaise. The lunch menu features gourmet sandwiches and salads including a lobster cobb salad, as well as their ever popular gulf grouper tacos. With exceptional entrees such as the seared tuna with furikake, crispy sushi rice and vegetable escabeche and the Chef’s signature black grouper with king crab & charred corn truffle risotto cake, neonata relish and champagne citrus butter sauce, the dinner menu is truly novel. To brighten up the experience, the BALEENbar features a stellar wine-by-the-glass program, an extensive list of handcrafted and classic cocktails--as well as martinis.


Whether seated in an indoor epicurean enclave or a barefoot beach table, guests enjoy three daily seating.
