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

Selected this restaurant based on "proximity" to our rental (searching for beach front fine dining nearby) not realizing the actual remoteness. It's a very retro/romantic experience, the marina where you wait for the boat is beautiful and tranquil, the boat ride is quick and pleasant, and you are greeted off the boat and escorted directly to your table. Can see... More

My husband and I spent his birthday on this island and we loved it. The dinners at The Dining Room were magical. The sun would set just at dinner time and the Key deer would appear from nowhere. Something I will never forget. The food was delicious and the selection was always a delight. The best part.....no children!

A beautiful ferry boat ride out to the island!! The atmosphere is one of the best it's true island dining. Expect to pay big bucks!! Do not come with the idea you can walk around and see the island or walk or dine by their beaches....it is all private area for those staying at the island. So what you get... More

This is the second time at this restaurant for a special occasion. The ambiance is really nice but when it comes to food portions my meal resembled an appetizer. We were very disappointed ! I understand paying more for the uniqueness and exclusiveness of Little Palm but it should include reasonable portions too. In addition, the pace of the service... More

This is an amazing place to have dinner while a bit expensive it is so worth the visit. We have gone there several times ove the years always in time for sunset. The Key Deer walk freely among the tables the food is totally awesome. The boat ride out there alone is a lovely experience. It is dressy casual and... More
