Tried to go to Death by Tako but they were in the middle of renovation, so I asked who they recommended, they suggested Mo's. Good call. A short menu but includes chicken, beef and of course seafood. The place is not inexpensive but everything appears to be prepared as you wait. This makes the service a bit slow but the... More

Although it takes awhile to get your food, it's worth the wait. Tasty & fresh cooking every time I've eaten there. Best chef ever!

You can tell this is a restaurant where food is actually made to order. Fresh. Delicious. I ordered the Fish, which was served with rice and fresh veg...spiced just right! Worth a stop if you are a local or visiting Key West (located off White Street). The portions leave you satisfied and thinking about what you would order on your... More

We read about this place in a travel book and decided to look for it. Now if I was passing and fancied a bite to eat I would have walked on by this place, it ain't the best looking place around. The toilets/restrooms are a bit grim, the door needs a lick of paint or a good clean, I used... More

They serve a variety of ethnic delights The owners are from Haiti and bring dishes that are not only delicious but pack heat, if you ask for it They also continue to serve the French cuisine of the previous owners (French onion soup, quiche, and escargot) Love this hidden gem on white street

We enjoyed a great lunch with plates of pork and oxtail. They were out of goat. Rice and beans were excellent as was the sangria. Reasonably price and good service.
