Pair this meal with the charming atmosphere of the Hideaway Cafe, and you will have found a well kept secret in the Keys. The next time you plan... More

Just had a great meal, the house duck special and char grilled shrimp. Desserts were great: key lime/blueberry mouse and creme brulle. One of the best meals on the trip. Close to some our favorite places in DC and Manhattan.

Wow! What a surprise! Hidden above a very pink,older motel, this is a hidden treasure! The atmosphere is upscale mixed with the earthiness of the keys! The selections were varied and plentiful. The food was great and I wished we had found it earlier in the week because we would have returned! The service was great! The waiter, the servers,... More

We had the most amazing evening at this Keys restaurant. It's truly a hideaway because there are no signs to guide you. You have to know its upstairs at the Rainbow Bend Resort in Grassy Key. The service is incredible and the food is over-the-top. A legendary culinary experience coupled with out of this world Keys ambiance. We sat outside... More

We have been in Keys for over a week and we had the best meal at the Hideaway. Both the food and service was excellent. Hope to go back before we leave.

Food Very Good. Service excellent. I went with the local fish both nights. Should have tried the steak, one was served next to me on my last night. It smelled awesome.

Don't let the exterior fool you. Tucked on the 2nd floor of a well worn motel building, the food and service is wonderful. Great selection of fish and beef courses. Higher end dining with a casual keys atmosphere. Just down from Hawks Cay resort near mile marker 58.

I had the filet. Was cooked correctly, but not seasoned in any way. It was served with a very bland bernaise. My wife had shrimp scampi. Once again bland, didn't have the strong butter and garlic flavor we're used to. Service was well enough. Restaurant needs updated badly, everything there looks tired and worn out. There are better options to... More
