The tiki torch & candlelit tables on the beach are absolutely serene. The food is also amazing--by far the best meal we had on the island!

Morada bay cafe is an excellent place to watch a Florida keys sunset. The grounds and facility are spotless and we had lobster tails and champagne and loved it. We typically don't get Florida lobster but the guy next to us said it was good and he was right. We started with the mayu salad and watermelon salad. Both we're... More

Stopped for lunch on our way to Hawks Cay after our usual break at World Wide Sportsman. We walked into a beautiful beach scene with tables & umbrellas on a magnificent sandy beach overlooking gulf. Almost tempted to come back in 2 hours to see the sunset but we were tired and hungry. Immediately had an ice cold margarita and... More

Stopped in for dinner on our way to Key West based on a recommendation from a friend and we all were so pleasantly surprised at the lication, the great beach, the beautiful sunset, and great food. I can see why so many people recommend this place. I had the Florida Lobster with coconut rice and it was excellent. The casual... More

We were looking for a sunset dinner location when we came across this gem. We stopped in on Friday night and were seated at a table on the beach right away. What a wonderful view. This is what I imagined life at the Keys to be like. The server took our drink orders and offered to put the kids meal... More

We went here for lunch, had the grilled cheese with lobster-very good and rich. Also had the conch fritters. Not great, regret having those. Prices a little high for what you get. Service was pretty good, food not too bad. View is the best part.

Boated in for lunch after a morning of fishing Bayside. Spotty service (missed order of fritters, slow drink orders) culminated in an inability to deliver a fairly simple dish--fish tacos--until 15 minutes after all other meals had been served, and with minimal apology. To top it off, the meat in each taco was a frozen food looking fingerlet no larger... More

The food is always excellent and you can't beat the sunsets. Their full moon party is fun too. If you think you'll be sitting at one of the beach tables, be sure to bring a little bug spray. Hey, it's the keys!
