Key Biscayne very isolated simple but good food

So you took a drive to see Key Biscayne. Or maybe you did a fishing charter. Or you played golf at the Crandon Golf course. Now you want someplace for lunch or dinner. This small restaurant with seafood and a Cuban slant is really charming. It is at the very end of a park, next to a small marina... read more

When we got there, whad to wait to be seated, lot of empty tables... after 5 minutes a lady turned up and showed us the table without saying a word. Food wasn’t too bad, but they never asked if anything else is needed, empty glasses, sitting in front of empty plates. No thanks when we paid or a thank you... More

I went many times to this restaurant. First of all, it is in a state park. It is by the sea and the view is stunning. Food is simple but it is good and fresh and service is fine. Honestly I am surprised to see so many bad reviews.

Don't waste time or money at this restaurant. The service was rude and slow. I ordered conch fritters for dinner. They were the size of marbles and presented with a side of white iceberg lettuce. Overall the food was miserable and way over priced. I would never return. Such a shame as the location is quite nice.

We arrived by boat in No Name Harbor. It was nice to have a restaurant there for a choice of something on land. We ordered and appetizer and a couple of drinks. We had the fish ceviche which was excellent and I had a Sangria that was delicious. The other food was a little pricey but it all looked so... More

We visited a few days before Christmas, and had an excellent meal. The fish was fresh, the view unbeatable, and music added to the ambiance. I would visit again!

We had the freshest seafood with a Latin flair and most spectacular view that South Florida has to offer. Reservations are not taken and the wait was minimal. Sadly, our server, Nora, was outwardly rude from beginning to end. She ended up slamming our dish down on the table after we sent back some uncooked clams. I hope the owner... More

I went there with my boyfriend and we had to wait about 10 minutes just to be seated although there have been a number of free tables. It seemed like nobody cares about the guests as the two girls standing in front of us had to wait for the same time. We ordered fish croquettes, a salmon burger and chicken... More

After a day of fishing in the Cape Florida Park, we decided to have lunch at the Boater's Grill in the No Name Harbor. Oh my goodness, it was awesome. If you love Cuban food, real seafood, and awesome portions........Boater's Gill is the place. I had the Shrimp and Lobster Fra Diavolo. It was a little on the pricey side,... More
