We had tasty fresh fish, plantains and yucca. There were plenty fresh fruit juice options - including my favorite - passion fruit. The prices were reasonable, especially considering the location. The deck overlooks the vegetated dunes. Do watch out for hungry raccoons

Ocean front location, right on Biscayne beach. Food was OK, friendly service. Some items are pricey, and I was over charged on my bill.

Wonderful view, kind service, solid food. So far this is he best breakfast in Key Biscayne. The Cuban coffee was perfect and not served in a styrofoam cup. Great bacon and eggs. If only they served home fries or real hashed browns - the place would be perfect.

We had a hot dog and fries and a couple of drinks for around $27. The service was good but the experience was kind of let down when at the end he asked us where we were from and found out we were from the UK and insisted on the tip of 15%. I don't know if people from the... More

If you like your food fried, two or three times, overpriced and are happy to wait 30 minutes for someone to bring water then this is the place for you! Honestly.... avoid this place if possible.

We enjoyed a great lunch here along with fabulous adult beverages. Outdoor sitting is terrific though a bit toasty in June. Still they have a covered deck with ceiling fans to keep the air moving.

This is a great breakfast and lunch place with the freshest seafood and a great view of the Biscayne Bay. It is a very simple place with outdoor seating surrounded by lots of vegetation and sand. It is inside of a state park so you need to pay an entry fee to access the park and the restaurant. Prices are... More

The food here is not bad and the prices are reasonable. The french fries were a bit undercooked for my taste though. The sangria was very good and the staff was friendly.

If you come to Bill Baggs Park and want to grab a bite, the price was right and the watermelon juice was a refreshing surprise on a hot day.
