Mojitos are easy to botch, but this place has the most delicious coconut mojito with toasted coconut on the rim of the glass. It was so good, I didn't want to finish it. The location is a little bit off the beaten track, but it is a nice waterfront spot for sunset viewing. The food was good and the service... More

If you want a place to dine that has great food and outstanding service make a reservation. I drive from marathon with my wife, family and friends when they visit and they all rave about Kaya's. My favorite meal is the Conch Ceviche for an appetizer, the Conch Steak for my main course and Hulu Girl for Desert. Their fish... More

We went there for dinner with the family, service was great and food very good. Our server (stevey) was very good with our baby and understood we had to be in and out. Pleasant experience

Wow! There was a large group of us (7 adults and 2 kids) and we ordered a lot of different dishes to share. We're all in the restaurant industry and are big foodies and we were all very impressed with the combination of flavors, presentation and excellent service. Not to be missed is the Ahi Tuna Poke on fried wonton... More

One of the best places to eat. Great food and the staff are so friendly. They make you feel like family. I love their Korean beef tacos.

Everything here is fantastic, from the starter sweet rolls, to the appetizers, to the fresh seafood dishes. I can't speak to the deserts. The coconut mojito is the absolute best non-traditional mojito I've ever had...and I've tried my share! Kaya is a must. Oh, and sunsets are beautiful there.

We were at Kaya fro Valentine's Day. We watched a beautiful sunset from our table. There were many interesting choices on the menu. The food was a blend of fresh seafood and Asian flair.
