From the friendly island service and atmosphere and water view dining to the Toasted Coconut Mojito to the delicious entrees like Island Roast Pork, Teriyaki Skirt Steak, Cherryaki Chicken, etc and ending with the delectable Hula Girl Pie it was a perfect dining experience!

One of the only restaurants I know where the owner is just about always there to greet you and make sure you are fully happy with your evening. Great place, with wonderful island spiced twist on simple dishes! My favorite is the noodle bowl with the marinated ginger beef... There's always leftovers for lunch the next day!

A friend had told me the Chef here welcomes Vegans so I had to give it a shot. I had a grilled tofo dinner with curry rice. It was great. There were several other options on the menu also. I also loved the French fries. Service staff was more than helpful and very polite. I will be eating here again.

Great fish selections, and any can be prepared at least four different ways. The overall menu selection is amazing. The staff is perfect. The owner, Scott, is always helpful with any special requests. We spend two weeks in the Keys twice a year, and dine at Kaya five to six times during each trip.

We LOVE this restaurant and make point of going every few months when we find ourselves seeking some r&r in the keys. The menu is amazing and I cannot say enough kind things about the staff. We ended up being there just before opening time and they graciously let us sit at the bar until the dining room was set.... More

Do not miss out on this opportunity. We had a reservations for a large group and the seating wasn't available at our reservation time. The owner... More

We encounter at least 4 people working here during our visit and they were each so genuinely nice. This feels like a family sharing their dining room with you. The catch of the day is the way to go and there are several different ways to have it prepared. The beverage selection was better than most. For desert, I had... More

The variety on there menu is incredible. 6 of us went and sampled each other's entrees. Each were amazing. Slow cooked Cuban style pork was my favorite. The owner came by and made sure everything was perfect. I will definitely go back.
