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.

We just had a very poor lunch experience. We took our friends here before they were headed home and the service was slow and poor. The food mediocre at best. And all this happening on a slow day and to me. I just don't understand it because this is a go to for salads and fresh food. It will be... More

I had not been to bagatelle for several years and so, on a recent trip to Key West, decided to give it another try for breakfast. I was not disappointed. I used to order the huevos rancheros, which are still on the menu, but decided on the breakfast tacos - scrambled eggs, Key West shrimp, bacon, cheddar cheese, and avocado... More

My husband and I went to Key West for a birthday/vacation, and dined at Bagatelle for his birthday. It was a wonderful meal, we were seated on the upper floor balcony and had a blast watching the crowd on the street below. The food was superb and the service was impeccable.

This is the second time I've been here for happy hour and honestly the first time was a big disappointment however I wanted to try it one more time. This time we went upstairs and were much more impressed compared to the first trip. The bartender was great! She recommended an espresso martini and it was delicious! Grab some food... More

Much needed bloody mary's to start with but you must try their mango mojitos - delish. Maya was lovely and provided us with great service.

Thanks to bartender Jen for making our last Friday happy hour a success. She was fast and served excellent drinks. Their wine selection is outstanding a served perfectly chilled. The tapas menu for happy contain healthy portions for a reasonable price. Great atmosphere right on Duval street.

Setting was wonderful. Old historic mansion. We went for breakfast. Service was slow, but that did not ruin anything. I had the eggs benedict with crab and it was wonderful. Coffee was good and strong. Overall, a pleasant experience.

On our way to take the historic Conch Train, we passed Bagatelle and decided to stop in. Great breakfast at a good price! The wait staff was excellent and the setting was perfectly located right off of Duval. Do yourself a favor and stop in!
