This is the place to go for a celebratory type lunch/dinner. This is NOT the place to go to feast- portions are very small and expensive. That being said, the atmosphere and ambiance of this gorgeous island are WELL WORTH the prices in my opinion. The food is beautifully arranged on your plate, and was good- not out of this... More

Very sad experience . We got there for the brunch 5 mins late . Staff was rude, not accommodating . It was my husband birthday and we were mistreated! The lady said "12:30 brunch means 12:30" well traffic is a problem in the Florida keys! There was no need for the lecture plus when I was leaving , the lady... More

The setting and location are great, the service good, but the food was pedestrian at best. Had to send back 2 Entrees in 3 days. Soggy lobster is not good.

Be prepared to spend money on this one! Very expensive but worth EVERY penny. The food was phenomenal and the ambiance/view was priceless. There are wild Key deer on the beach and they will come close enough to touch. The sunset was out of this world and the staff was very friendly. I cannot wait to visit Little Palm again…next... More

We had lunch (4 of us) this past Saturday. We had heard quite a bit about the restaurant and were excited to go. Visitors wait for a boat ride over to the island, provided by the resort. The gift shop at the launch was very cute and had a lot of nice items to look at. We were met at... More

Food was good and atmosphere was great with the exception of the bugs. The waiter brought a bottle of bug spray to the table it was so bad and every person on the beach was scratching! Sit inside! The food was great! Waiter was nice. Would not go back if we had known about the bugs. I have literally over... More

We've stayed here a few times aboard our boat but have never come as visitors just for lunch. The resort is ONLY accessible by boat or seaplane. Little Palm provides a shuttle boat for lunch & dinner visitors. We brought friends for lunch and enjoyed the 15 min boat ride aboard the antique replica of the Truman....like something out of...

Four of us had lunch here on a return trip from Key West. We are all Florida residents. We had heard how beautiful this place was so we wanted to try it. Yes, it is beautiful. Absolutely. We felt like we were in the South Pacific. But for the prices they charge, we expected to be WOWed by the food... More

My boyfriend and I visited Little Palm to celebrate my 30th birthday. A friend made the reservation for us, and he told them that we were celebrating. Everyone on the island took great care of us and made me feel very special. I had been warned that it was hard to find and to allow an hour to get there... More
