Beautiful location, great food

Beautiful surroundings, very relaxing and nicely decorated, quality venue. Very good food in an amazing decor. Service could have been a bit quicker. Before you leave don't forget to spot the iguanas !

Ate at this restaurant ten years ago and never forgot it -- feet in the sand, sunset, relaxed ambiance, good food. So glad to visit again in early April and find it just as lovely. (This time everyone's jumping up to get the sunset on their iphones though). Order key lime pie or creme brule with confidence. Best overall restaurant... More

We were blown away by the view and setting! The tables are literally on the beach overlooking a picturesque bay. We arrived late for dinner and felt like the staff was more eager to wrap up for the night than attend to our table. Food was very average but the drinks were tasty.

We came to watch the sunset and have a few drinks we were not disappointed! Ivanhoe comment on the food -but the old and relaxed atmosphere is exactly what we were looking for.

For the last night of our Keys vacation we decided to have dinner and watch the sunset at Morada Bay, based on the recommendations of some friends and also the hotel we were staying at. We were able to get a table on the beach, and enjoyed a good meal that was priced on the upper end of reasonable -... More

Rating = Go Kid friendly. Situated on the Gulf side of Islamorada, Morada Bay serves up some fine fare. Highly recommend the crab cakes. There's enough for two, so you can share. But you may not want to after one bite. Gambas al Ajillo (shrimp) was the entrée I chose and it was perfect. Six huge shrimp in a butter,... More

The place was packed every night we were in the keys and that's because of the postcard perfect location. Absolutely beautiful spot on the beach. have a drink and a meal with your toes in the sand. The only downside was the service was poor. Not because they weren't friendly, they were just over booked. When they got to you... More

stopped here for lunch. Beautiful setting. Everyone had burgers, nothing special, overdone and not much flavor. Service was slow considering it was not very busy.
