Great hidden French gem!

Well hidden French gem! We look forward to going here on each Keys trip - and is worth the indulgence and higher cost - but truly excellent food too!! Small but very attentive staff. Cannot go wrong here (except to not to)

It was not easy to find the place, but the place was very charming. The view, service and food were all great.

While the food is good it is vastly overpriced. If you are a guest of the resort your breakfast is included with the room. It is not much of a breakfast and they rate it at a $5.95 value and there a 5 items at that price. A really decent breakfast is available if you subtract the $5.95 for the... More

This is the sort of place I am nearly loathe to review. It's so good - I want to keep it to myself. Robert runs the front house and does so with great panache. If you don't know this place is here - you'd never find it. It's in the back of an old 50's motel (also very well run... More

This place is definitely hidden and pulling into the motel parking lot I was definitely worried. I am happy to say the food and staff are excellent! From the tomato tapanade to the salad, wine and entrees all the food was delicious! We sat on the porch overlooking the ocean and breezes. The server must have overheard us toast our... More

Reserved a table for our anniversary and received excellent and personable service. The food was exceptional: Beef Wellington cooked to perfection and steak au poivre was outstanding. Accompanied salads and vegetables tasted fresh and delicious. The staff made our evening special with a romantic table tucked in a corner with a water view and a celebratory complimentary dessert marking our... More

Nice steaks, amazing duck, unbelievable cheese cake, lovely expresso, great staff. I had the catch of the day - hogfish panfried. Hmmmmhmmmm! If you go for the early bird, you can get many choices from $17 menu. I can't imagine tripping to eat a whole duck! We're planning our next trip right away!

First of all, I really like the fact that this restaurant is "hidden away." It's ducked off & overlooks the ocean, it's great for a secluded island feel. The service is wonderful, the staff are extremely professional. My friends and I really enjoyed our meal here, I had the beef Wellington which was remarkable considering the fact that you never...

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and it was just wonderful! He got the rack of lamb and I got the seafood special which came with a large fillet of fresh hogfish, huge prawn and jumbo scallops. And for dessert i had the white chocolate cheesecake and he had chocolate lava cake. Everything was divine! And the... More

I loved everything about my experience! From the amazing food to the quant decor to the extensive wine selection to the great ocean view to the impeccable service. Definitely my new favorite restaurant. I had the duck & it was prepared perfectly, it was juicy on the outside & crispy on the inside & served in a tasty sauce. For... More
