Spending the first night in Key West I went into Tripadvisor for a good restaurant. This one popped up in 15th place with many positive reviews. Looking at the pictures - why not try something unsual. Told my wife and two daugthers (6 & 10) to get ready and get going. Had a surprise. When we went down the narrow... More

We live in Key West and are sorry that we had not visited sooner. Great find in a quaint neighborhood. My lobster thermador was delicious. We didn't make reservations, wish we had because the inside had a/c....but with kids, reservations are sometimes not an option... anyways I will definitely return because I want to try the lobster mac n' cheese....

The intimate setting nestled in a cute neighborhood sets the mood as soon as you walk in. The staff was super friendly and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops. They literally melted in my mouth.

Very intimate dining with great service. The food was delicious and creative. The Lobster Macaroni and Cheese was to die for along with the banana bread french toast dessert.

This restaurant is incredible. So incredible, I am actually writing a review (this is not my type of thing). The staff was inviting and sociable. They were friendly but not in your business throughout the meal. The atmosphere was perfect for my wife and me, small and cozy but decorated elegantly. The restaurant lets the food do most of the...

I needed fresh local fish that was not deep fried in grease and slapped on bread. This was hands down our favorite meal of the trip. I got the snapper with lime butter and my boyfriend got the hogfish with banana salsa both were excellent however don't get the salsa if you don't like cilantro! I am gluten free so... More

In my top ten dining experiences. It's intimate, a great atmosphere and from start to finish the service was wonderful. As for the food - it's was sublime. We had the bacon wrapped scallops (delicious), chicken and waffles, and the tropical stir fry. Wonderful, well thought out dishes which didn't need the lovely presentation they had to shine through.

Alberto really knows his stuff. Convinced me to do the entree dinner trio and they're the perfect sizes. Extremely knowledgeable of wines and absolute confidence in his kitchen staff. This Agro-American grouper is the business. Dined outside with my dog and didn't once feel like I was an inconvenience. He made sure of that.
