Well worth the wait and glad we made the reservations. The desserts were excellent and well done. More than enough for one sitting. Could have used more lighting-thought we were going to burn the "menu/tablet" trying to read it. But who cares if all you need are tastebuds :) and a good recommendation!

Stopped here our last night in Key West during our honeymoon. Thankfully we didn't stop earlier in our trip or we would have gained a few extra pounds returning many times I'm sure! Dark, intimate setting by candlelight, friendly wait staff, reasonable prices. We ordered the fork you fondue which was cinnamon sugar cake balls with a cream cheese dipping... More

My husband and I were spending some much needed time together after recently becoming new parents, Better than Sex was the perfect place to celebrate. Quiet, dark, sexy atmosphere , beautiful and unique setting. Desserts were delicious too. It seems pricey $120 for dessert and wine (2 bottles!) but it was an experience as well. Oh and our waitress, Tia... More

We went here because so many people raved about it on this website. This is an interesting concept for a restaurant but I would not return. There are a lot of excellent restaurants in the Keys with amazing pastry chefs. My spouse had the sorbet which was good but it was not better than Ciao Bella. I had the red... More

OMG! As usual Better than Sex out did themselves. We had a party of 12 (yes, I know they only accept reservations for 4, but we got 3 tables and they were able to sit us in the same room). It was incredible, the rest of our group 32 in all visited during our stay, not one complaint. Everyone wants... More

We were told about this restaurant by a friend so we made sure to book a reservation before we left. It is recommended by the restaurant to make one, especially on the weekends but since we were there during the week we almost didn't book one. I'm glad we did, because there were quite a few people waiting to be... More

Loved this place!! Desserts were fabulous, wine glasses dipped in your choice of chocolate, caramel, and other yumminess were amazing! Very cute tongue-in-cheek naughty names and descriptions and very cool atmosphere! Awesome place!

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
