Graciously different

Sinatra music, fresh flowers, exquisite view, impeccable service, food prepared to perfection. This place is definitely out of the ordinary and well worth visiting. The duck and hogfish entrees were incredibly wonderful.

The Hideaway Café at Rainbow Bend Resort is one of the best restaurants in the middle Florida Keys. Their portions are generous, delicious and worth every penny. We have had the seafood and beef selections and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Chef Frieda's Raspberry Key Lime Soufflé is to die for.

Stayed at the Seashell Beach Resort at Marathon Keys, Florida for our 3 year Anniversary. Stumbled across a place just a minute walk from our door called Hideaway Cafe. Didn't expect much going into it but my wife and I were pleased beyond expectations. Tiny hole in the wall at Rainbow Resort. Food quality and staff were top notch! The... More

Absolutely wonderful food. We winter in Marathon every year. This is our GO TO place for a nice, quiet upscale meal. We usually go early. They have WONDERFUL early birds with perfect portions. French onion soup to die for. Hogfish and Duck are specialties, but the shrimp and lamb chops are great. The meals are less than $20.00. UNBELIEVABLE! Hard... More

Although this gem was difficult to find as there are no signs at the street, once we were inside the restaurant we were Greeted by Robert the bartender and seated quickly at a table on the porch overlooking the private beach at the Rainbows Bend Resort. The wait staff was attentive and the food was FABULOUS. We had the fresh... More

We went to the hideaway on the recommendation of the lady on our front desk. First impressions of the restaurant were good - great location with fantastic views of the ocean and Nancy the waitress was very friendly. However the food did not live up to expectations with both courses arriving Luke warm ( my husbands starter and my main... More

The menu seems French traditional - a lot of meat - so we did not eat here, but we loved the atmosphere - 2-3 rooms upstairs above a little beach with great views over the ocean. White tablecloths, big wine glasses, elegant patrons. A true hideaway, as there is no sign on the road. It is in the Rainbow Bend... More

Just finished having dinner here. What a gem of restaurant. Found this from the girls working the front desk of Tranquility Bay Resort. We asked for a place to go for a nice dinner, they both responded in unison "The Hideaway Cafe". They both stated it was their favorite place to eat. We were not disappointed with their suggestion.

Recommended by a friend. The Duck was wonderful along with all the other meals my family had there. Great food and a beautiful ocean view. Staff was very friendly and professional.

This was our first visit to the Hideaway though we visit the Keys every year, and even lived in Key Largo for five years. The reason we waited was that it has a rather "grown up" feel to it, though they do offer a menu for children. We had a shrimp bisque, Caesar salads, my husband ordered fantastic hogfish, and...
