Great atmosphere, Awesome food!

I was at Butterfly Cafe a couple weeks ago with my family and had the Filet Mignon, which was the best steak I've had in a while. Our server Roxanne was ever better! I highly recommend this place and ask for Roxanne she was great. DEFINITELY WILL BE COMING BACK!

We were there for a birthday dinner. Quite the ambiance, sitting on a beautiful wide white deck amongst lush greenery on a balmy evening. Service was excellent, food was very good and the wine list varied enough for all palates. The key lime pie for dessert was amazing and fortunately, didn't have to share!!! A wonderful evening, would go back... More

We stayed at the resort and had a lovely dinner at Butterfly Cafe. We really enjoyed our outdoor table, but indoor setting looked lovely and classy too. Server was very friendly and efficient. Food was delicious! We mostly tried the specials - salads and seafood.

We were in Marathon for our 22nd anniversary and had dinner here. This is a beautiful restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining (would definitely suggest eating inside during the summer). We were taken care of by Roxann who did an outstanding job. I had the Grouper and my husband had a Filet - both were excellent and beautifully presented. If... More

The Butterfly Cafe was the perfect place to celebrate our 20th anniversary while in the Keys! The food was excellent, the service top-notch, and the atmosphere so cozy. You have to try the key lime martini! Following dinner we walked down to the tiki bar on the beach and watched a beautiful sunset. We are already planning our next trip... More

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here and we were not disappointed. We were looking for something other than the typical Florida Keys fish house type of restaurant. It was very nice and clean inside. We had the scallop risotto and mahi dinner. Both were great! You have the option of sitting inside or outside. We opted to... More

We decided to try The Butterfly Cafe based on the reviews on trip advisor. I couldn't have been more satisfied with our choice! This restaurant was so amazing! We were really tired of the usual "tourist" food that we were eating while in the Keys. The food was good but nothing stood out until we ate here. The menu offered... More
