Excellent meal

Lovely place, nice people, delicious food. Recommend the smoking thighs, scallops, and Caribbean roast. YOU MUST GET THE CORN!! Eat in or take out, but get there early: they close at 7.

Delicious food at a reasonable price for Key West. Not too spicy but all we had was very flavourful!

This place is a must if you visit Key West. Small local take away type of place the food is magical. We had the Cuban fish sandwich and I have never had something like that. The fish is firm and tasty onions are delicious and the bread works great. No table but chicken around you to make it really special.... More

Wow! The sandwich was soooooo good! My only recommendation is that 2 people could share this one!!! I want to try the roasted corn next time. It looked amazing.

We had been walking in old town Key West around lunch time and noticed several people eating outside of "Bien Restaurant". A wise stop for us to stop for lunch. Three of us had grilled scallop sandwich with carmelized onions, mushrooms and special house dressing on a baguette.

BIen has outdoor seating or take out. The sandwiches on mouth watering Cuban bread are equaled by the beans and rice dishes. Like everywhere in Key West, hens and roosters strut the grounds and provide a unique atmospherte as you await your order or eat on site. We happily visited three times during our vacation in Key West.

We got take out from Bien since there are only a few outdoor seats and lots of patrons. My husband and I each had The Press, a modified Cuban sandwich which was very, very good. The peppers added just the right amount of heat. My daughters had the Caribbean Roast which was melt-in-your-mouth good pork on a roll. I wanted... More

We've eaten at Bien twice so far and are very happy with everything we've had. The place is easy to miss on Eaton street, there is no dining room but there are a few place to sit out front. The sandwiches we've had were very good, but the chicken thighs are the best thing they have on the menu.
