Friends told us about Better Than Sex and raved about it. So we tried it on the last night of our visit to Key West. I'm glad they told us to make a reservation because there was a wait without one. It was everything they raved about. The ambience was classy and romantic. The dessert drinks are so decadent, with... More

This restaurant had been recomended by locals and fellow travelers, so we knew we had to give it a try. We thought the atmosphere was fantastic and our server Taylor was wonderful. We loved the Ipad menu which gave a fantastic representation of the delectable sweet treats and beverages. We shared the desert of the night and was not disappointed.... More

We went in August of 2014. It is a little expensive but worth it for a special occasion or a vacation splurge. I would only recommend this for couples or dates. They award winning deserts that are worth the try. The drinks with the rims covered with Carmel and chocolate are a little much and tend to become a sticky... More

I had read about this on TripAdvisor and was looking forward to going. It was disappointing to me. The dessert and drinks were OK but not really worth the cost. It was crowded with mostly the younger crowd in attendance. You get drinks with chocolate or carmel or whatever on the outside of the wine glasses which you are supposed... More

It was an amazing experience. It's for couples only and when you get inside the restaurant, you'll know why. The whole place is illuminated by pure candle lights, it's almost dark, and quiet. In other words, it's very romantic. The desserts are fresh made from scratch. Our server, Kelly, was just great! She even has a drink named after her... More

This year for my birthday, my boyfriend and I planned a romantic trip to Key West. While searchign for great places to eat online, he came across a dessert restaurant called Better Than Sex - how intriguing! - and immediately made us a reservation for a special birthday treat. While driving into town we passed by the building in daylight.... More

Super small place which I think is a positive more then a negative (gives you that exclusive feeling) when we arrived be hostess was... More

This may be a tale of trying to hard. The desserts are better than the dessert you would have had at the restaurant but often they were not as great as we expected. I think the chef was focused on the idea and not the final product. Then again, we went twice, because we really like dessert and they were... More

If you love dessert then this is a must visit restaurant. There were four of us and we all got something different and shared. This is the best desserts I have ever tasted. The staff was friendly and efficient. A totally enjoyable experience. Do not pass this place up.

What an absolute gem of a find. Tucked off the main hustle and bustle of Duval St. It is one of the most romantic restaurants I've been in. I would recommend making a reservation at weekends but the atmosphere is really special. It's lit by candle light and you have torches if needed on your tables. It's designed for couples... More
