Menu looked great but a little pricey. Looked at other places and kept coming back to this one. The extra $ was worth it. Someone had told us to try hogfish and it was great! Who makes banana salsa? (It was on the daily specials.) Only 10 tables-glad we went early before it got crowded. Entrees were great-would pass on... More

Had dinner and it great...EVERY ounce of it! Had a trio entre that allowed you to sample 2 other offering. The restaurant is in a quiet residential type area away from the crowd. Its a small space so make a reservation. Staff here are really cool too.

Of course, it was Fantastic! We had the appetizer to share then followed it up with the Trio meal; shrimp ( to die for),... More

Recommended by a shopkeeper we chatted with, we took a chance and a taxi and landed in a well-kept secret for dinner. Lobster mac, lobster thermidor, black grouper...OMG! A tiny dining room, reservations recommended. This little gem is located in a homey setting and is nothing fancy but the food is to die for. Our server was funny, charming and... More

From the moment we arrived we knew this would be one of those Key West off the beaten path gems. The service is laid back but very professional. We chose to go with the house specials. The appetizer trio to share, which includes their signature lobster mac and cheese, then the entrée sampler, outstanding. Can't say enough about this great... More

Tucked away in an Old Town neighborhood on Packer Street. Loved sitting outside on the porch with the twinkling lights at dusk. Very friendly wait staff, food was wonderful! Half off bottles of wine this month a bonus. Will definitely go back often!
