Reservations Needed!

Our friends made reservations at this gem of a dessert restaurant and we all loved it! The atmosphere is dark and slightly naughty, and the names of their offerings are hysterical. The quality and taste of the desserts and beverages can't be beat. We can't wait to return!

Our second trip to did not disappoint. We celebrated a birthday and the dessert was amazing along with the treatment we received. If you are in town and you are not ruining your trip by counting calories, you must stop by. Looking forward to returning in May for our anniversary.

The ambiance, the decor, the wine and the desserts. They all lived up to the name of the resturant. A must visit spot in Key West. They have proven there is more to the island than key lime pie. There version is delicious. I will definitely be going back

Very pleasantly surprised, wasn't sure what to expect. Each table is very private in this dark lite resturant. The desserts are decadent , very rich and delicious . Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area and love chocolate .

The atmosphere was sensual and the service the friendliest in Key West. The desserts were great but the drinks were the real treat. The drizzle of different indulgences with different beverages were paired perfectly and was worth the trip.

There are three of these restaurants in Key West and they do not open until 6:00 pm. One of my most favorite spots in Key West. The restaurant serves deserts and drinks only. It is very dark inside, with red velvet curtains (that are closed) covering the windows. You are escorted to your table by a flashlight. There are also... More

When I'm given a flashlight in a restaurant I have to figure something's up. Thank God I had it to find my way to the men's room and the light switch when I got there. The desert was average at best. We definitely wouldn't go back.

My husband and I came here on "date night" during our family vacation while my parents babysat our kids. It was very romantic and definitely not suitable for children (if they even allow them). We sat in the speakeasy side of the restaurant and each had a drink and a dessert. I had champagne with a caramel rim and I... More

What an amazingly unique and creative concept this place is! It can seem a bit over the top when you first enter but don’t let that scare you away. The desserts are to die for and the service was great. I love that they used a tablet for the menu…it really helped you decide what you wanted, especially when you... More

We had a wonderful time- chocolate rimmed wine glasses- Desserts for dinner- reminded me of a dark Victorian house or a New Orleans "feel"- romantic date nite for us with early reservations - we dove into 3 diff desserts and skipped a regular dinner so we could indulge- parking was the only problem/hassle- allow an extra 30 min to find...
