A visit to our house is a unique way to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures as well as our treasures from the sea. The word Bagatelle comes from the French and means "a trifle or a little nothing", often referring to a light, fun, yet not too serious spring time romance. The French brought their history of fine cuisine and their love of wine to the Caribbean Islands. It is in this tradition that we have combined our French heritage, southern hospitality and the indigenous tastes of the Florida Keys into the meals we prepare today. Our chefs blend the best of our locally caught fresh seafood, fresh produce and delicious tropical fruits for our tropical seafood dishes.

Balcony Lunch

Ate here twice this week on balcony overlooking Duval for lunches. Great fish tacos and lobster macaroni, with portions that require a later dinner hour! Nice menu choices, dining 1pm was good for us after morning excursions.

The location of the place is excellent. It is very clean and classy. The prices are a little inflated. I had a the seafood linguini and had a few mussels missing from their shells. The sauce was just ok. It tasted a little like a common jar of sauce you would find at the store and not something from a... More

We had lunch here on Christmas Day. I had a great lobster macaroni and cheese. The sauce was an parmesan alfredo with chunks of lobster. I washed it down with a glass of mimosa. We sat upstairs on the open balcony, so we could watch all the goings on down on the street below. A great meal.

Good food and cocktails in a nice atmosphere. This is a good place for a special evening out. Located on Duval, there was seating inside as well as on the balcony. There are two small bar areas - one upstairs, one down.

Some people say that something g is to die for but you need to be very much alive to enjoy this fabulous breakfast. Fresh ground beans for brewed Lilly coffee and lobster grilled cheese- add a mimosa and it's heaven.

Have been coming to Key West for years and other than stopping for breakfast one day, we had never been to this restaurant for dinner. However this year, bagatelle was on the women's club restaurant card and we decided to give it a try. What a surprise! The food was outstanding and the service great. Had the whole red snapper...

I had dinner at the Bagatelle 30 years ago and it was one of my favorite restaurants. My wife had never been to Key West and I thought this would be a great place to take her. And it was, for the ambiance and atmosphere. The food was average. I had the Hogfish and it was okay while my wife... More

Had my pre-run dinner here. Service was good, food was also yummy. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly and so was my pork tenderloin. Location was nice, right on Duval St and easy to find. Would definitely visit again

We stopped in for breakfast one day and were very pleased. My companion has been there before and liked it. Said the Lobster Mac and Cheese was very good. It is in one of those beautiful large historic homes, right on Duval Street. We had a lovely high table on the second level of the veranda. It was an excellent... More
