We ate here after dark but it's about fifty feet from the water ocean side. The service was great and the food was exceptional. It's near the 58 mile marker north of Marathon. Make reservations it's no secret anymore. We had the Fra Diablo and the grilled Hogfish. Both excellent. We will be back.

This place is behind a ho hum motel called Rainbow End. There is no sign out front but boy am I glad we found it! What a hidden gem. Great food, best service we had all week, excellent wine choices. Hogfish was on the menu the night we were there. We ordered it three different ways and they were all... More

Older place but kept up. Breakfast looking out to the ocean is nice. Prices are reasonable - but a little expensive for dinner. No lunch. Must make reservations for dinner as it is a small dinning room.

Don't let the pink motel fool you. Once you head up the stairs the Hideaway Cafe becomes a wonderful surprise. The food and service are outstanding. The best duck we have ever eaten. go between 4:30 and 5:30 and you will receive a wonderful specials menu. Everything our party of 4 ordered was excellent. We all vowed to come back.

Outside looks bad, but the restaurant is Vern nice inside. Locally owned and known for outstanding food and great service. We had the hogfish dinners. They were OUTSTANDING! Waiters were uniformed. White linen tablecloths. Very relaxed, Florida Keys atmosphere. WE WILL GO BACK!

Hideaway cafe is stairs and behind Rainbow Bend Fishing Resort and it's free breakfast was the best part of the hotel stay. Pricey for meals and atmosphere leaves lots to be desired.....dirty carpet on porch......but excellent food and service.

We did their "Sunset Dinner"---sit by 5:15 and you can chose from a reduced price/smaller servings menu or the regular menu. We had the Escargot ($10) and then the Sunset "Catch of the Day" (Hogfish) and the Sunset Roast Duck (half instead of whole). Both entrees were $15.95. We had more than enough food, couldn't imagine eating the larger portions.... More

Nice Holiday concept - each couple got their own whole turkey with all the "fix-ens" You carve and serve what you can eat and they pack up the rest for you to take home. The place was jammed but you would not know it by the level of service - we were well taken care of and felt like the... More

They said get there before 5:15, some of meals half price,($15.50)but depending on what you order could be a lot of food. Ours was in that category. If REALLY hungry order from main menu, prices will match.We didn't have reservations, but were seated anyway, closer to 515 you might wait a little. Other reviews indicate a somewhat shabby entrance, but... More
