Description: 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.

Located right on Duval Street, Bagatelle has a great location, and a great building. The menu is varied and all the food here is very good. Nice place to go for dinner!!

This was our 2nd time going to this restaurant. First time was for breakfast and that was good. This time was for dinner and not so pleased this time. I ordered the flank steak and all I can see is this actually oil with a side of steak? My husband ordered shrimp pasta and it had no flavor. Not worth... More

Bagatelle did not disappoint. Merlin was our server... More

This restaurant is located on Duval St in an older home which makes it very quaint. Outdoor seating is on the porch and is really nice. The bar goes from the porch into the restaurant and it great. Fabulous food and the Chipotle Bloody Mary is awesome!!

I loved the look of this place and wanted to try it as soon as I saw it. It's a beautiful old house with a large porch area. However, appearances can be deceiving. When we arrived we were not really greeted at all. Eventually a hostess showed up and without saying anything proceeded to bring us upstairs. After we were... More

Stopped here because of an afternoon rain storm in July. Fantastic lobster grilled cheese.A little expensive, but you only live once. We were the only people inside the restaurant. It surprised me since their food was good and service friendly. Ate here years ago and had the same experience. Don't know why more people don't eat here.

The quality of the food and the presentation was on par with any top 10 restaurant in any major city and the staff are warm and helpful. We went to Bagatelle while on vacation and on the date of my son's birthday. When the waitress found... More

Wow! This is the place you want to eat in Key West. The food is outstanding! I had the walnut salad with blackened Mahi Mahi. We were lucky to get a table outside so we enjoyed watching everyone walking downtown. The staff is so friendly and quick. I would highly recommend
