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.

Stopped in Bagatelle for breakfast, our server was Bernadette. She made some wonderful recommendations. The bananas foster is to die for! My husband loved the huevos rancheros scrambled. Definitely try their sausage. Outstanding. The atmosphere is lovely & service top notch. We will be back!

Still a nice restaurant, but not anywhere the restaurant it was in the early 1990's Try to get a table against the rail on the upper porch...although the street noise from "Hogs Breath" across the street is loud

We were told to stop by here from a local which 9 times out of 10 is the best way to find the hidden gems and they were spot on. Great espresso martini's and tapas.

My wife and I have eaten lunch and dinner here several times now. Mostly because we love the location. We have been disappointed every time. The food is average and way overpriced and the service is terrible. Nothing but attitude. The place has so much potential but we've been let down enough now that we will not be going back.... More

One of our favorite KW restaurants. Ate lunch there twice this week and each time the food and service from Margaret was fantastic. The lobster grilled cheese and the mozzarella burratta are a must try.

After a long day of beach, pool and sight seeing, the Old Fashioned I ordered was so welcomed and yummy. I highly recommend the muscles. My husband kept raving about his perfectly cooked Filet Mignon. Service was excellent. Even the Mac and cheese and fried chicken for the kids were delicious. Expensive but worth it

To begin with, Key West has a plethora of excellent restaurants. I chose Bagatelle for dinner after doing some research, and I'm glad I did. The food was very, very good, and not outrageously priced. The only drawback is that the seating is in an open air area. There are many ceiling fans that do move the air around. We... More

Had dinner and drinks here on a hot July night . The seating was all out doors and we payed the price despite ceiling fans everywhere . That said the food was excellent with my choice of the grilled Grouper on a bed of spinach with mash potatoes and ceviche appetizer . The drinks were super ...cranberry mojitos. Definitely recommend... More
