So delicious

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.

The food was superb. Gave us free things to try including pumpkin pie! Definitely worth getting away from Duvall! Local cuisine obviously frequented by locals. Will return!

I was riding a bike around Key West and decided to try Mo's on the recommendation of my brother, who had been in the keys for several months. I was hot and sweaty and starving. I had creole chicken with red beans and rice, having been eating seafood for two weeks straight. The chicken was tender enough to cut with... More

My wife claimed we walked for miles to get here (from Duval St.) but while it is a short walk (on White street between Thomas and Catherine) it was well worth it. The interior looks like an average local café but the food and service is top rate. I had the goat with red beans and rice and vegetables and... More

There is nothing pretentious about this eatery. It reminds me of an old blue plate diner back home in the South, except it is carribean comfort food. The husband and wife owners are from Haiti and they have brought with them their cuisine. I had the slow roasted chicken with rice and vegetables. My wife had the snapper dinner. Both... More

The oxtail was amazing and the snapper with its delicate spicey sauce was so fresh I had to check to see if it was still alive. My only sorrow was that they were out of the pumpkin pie which I can only imagine was as good as everything else.

The service is slow, the food takes forever to arrive, the dining room doesn't look like much, but this remains one of the best restaurants i've ever been to. the snapper special is to die for! the seafood pasta is equally good and the goat is sublime. you can't go wrong here. and don't get me started on the pie!...

I am not any kind of expert when it comes to food, but this place felt very genuine to enjoy some creole-stylish food in a chill-out atmosphere. Nothing is cheap in Key West, so I think that the price and quality were finely balanced in this one. It is a small place, so it can be quite lively, but that... More

Even Bubba from Fort Worth can recognize great food and I just had it. I'm sitting here with 2 guys at the counter and no one else here. This might be the best food in Key West and no one is here! What's up with that? I had a Snapper dinner that was well presented with subtle seasoning and fresh... More
