I do not want to be forced to give a server an automatic 18% when they don't deserve it. If they know that's their tip there is no reason to provide outstanding service. I tip 22-25% for outstanding service but will not be forced to reward bad service. Will not be back will inform anyone who asks me!

We live this place and visit it every time we are in Key West. They have a great patio covered by trees and fans to keep up a nice breeze. Great place to hangout and relax. We like to sit and people watch. Staff is very friendly an the food is too notch.

We stopped here for dinner. The food was very salty. Big portions but what's the point - tasted bad! They add 18% gratuity on all bills - doesn't matter how many are in the party. Don't bother with this restaurant.

After having seafood all week we decided we wanted Mexican for our last night in Key West. Looked on Yelp and there weren't many to choose from. Sooooo glad we picked this place. I highly recommend it! It was sweltering hot and there was quaint outdoor seating so we asked for the coolest seat. We were not disappointed- the fans... More

First our waiter was like a robot. Asked for separate checks said against their policy. Offered margaritas glad we asked if wine based. No liquor sales. Chips were homemade was best part of the meal. Food was barely avarage. Will no return as a customer.

We had lunch and the atmosphere was very charming. Our waiters were fantastic, tending to our every need, and anticipating what may have wanted next. The food was very fresh and presented beautifully! It is a gem amongst all the noise, traffic, and humanity on Duvall street.

We are from Texas so we were amazed with the quality of the food (we had the tortilla soup, quesadillas and steak salad). Everything was so fresh and better than what we can get even in Texas!

After a long day in Key West, we decided to give ourself a treat in this mexican restaurant. We arrived at 22.05 and asked if it was possible to have dinner. No problem is what they said. On the contrary, the waiter made this an awful evening. He came to check every minute to see if we were ready to... More
