We went to Kaya to celebrate a special birthday for a friend. And boy, was it a special celebration. The service is fantastic--not fussy but attentive and helpful. The food is uniformly fantastic. From the special tuna to the tomato appetizer, just delicious! I had the fish tacos and the mahi was so fresh and the accompaniements so perfect--one of... More

I live close to Kaya and eat there often. Have found the food and service to be very good. Nice view of the water makes the experience even better, especially at sun set. The owner, Scott, seems to always present and attentive to the patrons needs.

Not a fussy place, but a comfortable, fresh, airy interior. The waitress graciously answered our dozen questions about the fish. It was beautifully prepared, so much more than I expected. I would eat here every day if I could. Simple, straightforward, well-balanced favors.

We were made to feel at home at the bar from the time we arrived. The bartender was very personable and provided excellent service. The appetizers were a hit as was the roast pork dinner. The beer was cold and there was a nice selection of craft beers to choose from. We will be back soon!

Fabulous, imaginative food with everything presented beautifully! Drinks are fantastic too. But the best part of our experience were the wait staff - very professional & pleasant.

Kaya is worth the 30 minute ride from KW. It is a Key West looking house up on stilts overlooking the water. It was chilly when we went and all their doors were opened. I mentioned it to the server and they kindly closed them. The atmosphere is casual. The food is not cheap, but the quality was excellent. I... More

Great seafood. Nice atmosphere, service and food. Just a short drive from Key West, well worth it. Lovely location. Great place to bring visitors and appropriate for families, friends or couples. A fairly big restaurant so noise is sometimes a factor. Prices are average for the area.

Food is still the freshest ingredients. Fish and fusion dishes are amazing. But you know what, the owner is amazing great guy who truly cares about making his... More

We are regulars at this establishment, and for very good reason. Never have we been disappointed. Last night, we tried a nightly special, which was a panko crusted rare tuna served with a sticky vanilla rice, topped with onions with apple flavoring. It was excellent! Throw in the perfectly made martinis and an owner who is very visible and a... More
