Cobalt has mastered high-end seafood with a local twist.

Looking for a classy night out while renting Orange Beach condos? There are a number of restaurants in the area, but Cobalt the Restaurant, located just under the Perdido Pass Bridge, offers delicious gourmet food and one of the best views in the area, a combination you have to enjoy at least once.

Head to Cobalt for fine dining in Orange Beach

You caCobalt has mastered high-end seafood with a local twist.n get raw oysters, shrimp po'boys and burgers almost anywhere along the Gulf Coast, but when you are staying in Orange Beach rentals, you're near one of the finest restaurants in the area - Cobalt the Restaurant. 

Cobalt is known for its gourmet cuisine and exquisite atmosphere. It's a perfect spot for a romantic date night with your sweetheart, but also has plenty of options that make it family friendly. Entrees include local ingredients like Alabama redfish, which is blackened and served on a bed of jambalaya rice and grilled asparagus. Other local fish like grouper, tuna, swordfish and more grace the entree menu as well, but those who don't eat fish will be just as thrilled with the steak options, such as the Cowboy Ribeye, served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, crispy leeks and a wild mushroom demi glace. The stone hearth pizzas might be great for the kids and vegetarians in your group. 

Although Cobalt's flavorful menu makes it a good pick any time of day, stopping by in the early evening is the best time to enjoy the restaurant's prime location, facing west on the back bays of Orange Beach underneath the Perdido Pass Bridge. You can view all the fishing charter boats coming in from a day out on the water as the sun sets over this picturesque spot. The restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows if you prefer to sit inside, but outside, the patio boasts stadium-like seating so everyone has a great view of the bay. 

In fact, Cobalt's location on the water makes it easy to pull your own boat up if you have been out on the water during the day instead of at your Orange Beach condo. There are a number of boat slips available for small boats and medium-sized yachts, so sail over for a refreshing meal at the end of an exciting day of fishing or simply relaxing on your boat.
