This was highly recommended to us by my friend who is a pastry chef. They have really made the most of their romantic, sexy theme from the decor to the mood lighting to the menu. The walls are painted chocolate brown with full luxurious drapes, chandeliers, vintage photos, etc. Lighting is very dark. We made a bit of a mistake... More

While visiting Key West the 4 of us usually didn't eat dessert. However, on the last night of our trip, we went to this dessert restaurant. After enjoying the menu titles and description, we chose 2 desserts to share. Both were absolutely delicious. We would certainly recommend this place for dessert anytime.

The atmosphere was absolutely fitting. The waitress was great and so was the dessert. They offer a very unique dessert experience like no other. Amazing pairing with chocolate dipped wine glasses! Love!

Great ambience, great menu and great results .... The restaurant only serves dessert, but that's a meal on it's own here.

After reading the reviews I had very high expectations of this place...the atmosphere was nice, dark and close. They gave you an iPad as a menu. We had the cookie pie and flour less cake with raspberry sorbet, coffee and chocolate milk. It was good but very sweet. We paid almost $50 for dessert and coffee! Way too expensive in... More

Huge portions and everything was just too sweet. The restaurant is small and it was good that we made reservations. The staff were very friendly, lighting and candles add up to a nice motif, it might be a bit pricy but we came here knowing what to expect and the dessert menu is simply amazing and sumptuously sweet, and the...

This is a total "date place" = very dark, very romantic. It is so dark that they give you flashlights to read the cool-electronic menu. The photos are amazing. We had the dark chocolate cake and what was like a cookie pie. Just the basics--made absolutely FABULOUS. You won't be disappointed.

I'd say a more apt simile is, the most fun you can have with your clothes on. Cute motif, too; it's all dark, they give you flashlights and iPads to order off of. It's worth skipping a meal to come with a friend/spouse and try as much stuff as possible. You might need insulin afterwards, but by God, it'll be... More

Outstanding drinks and desserts. Everything was very tasty and melts on your mouth. My only complaint is pretty expensive meal for just a drink and a dessert. Maybe go after dinner and spilt a dessert!

Extremely low lighting creates a very dark but cozy environment. The restaurant is tiny. The service was good and the food was amazing. If you like peanut butter, you MUST have the Peanut Butter Perversion. My wife had the Twist and Stout which was great. All of the desserts are extremely rich and decadent.
