Almost located at the very end of Lover's Key( another treat when sharing a meal with a loved one!), this restaurant surpassed my expectation! I have gotten used to rather bland, produced for the masses meal approach here in Florida, but this really is a visual and palate pleasing stop.
The restaurant does not take reservations, but a call to Ray can set you up on the wait list if one has started. Tel 239 765 1025.
The menu is offers starters, and a variety of fish options, including home made pastas.
Chef Cruz came into the restaurant and engaged with us in a wonderful conversation about his journey from El Salvador to Los Angeles, and working with Wolfgang Puck and Thomas Keller for 6 years. He is focused on preparing food that visually appeals and then is kicked up to the next level in flavor.
My partner and I started with:
A Spanish-style shrimp cocktail with seasoned shrimp, lump crab meat, avocado, red onion,
cucumber, cilantro, jalapeño and clamato juice served with warm tortilla chips. $14.90
Fresh Yellow Fin Tuna with pickled ginger, diced cucumbers and avocado relish tossed with sesame seeds, lemon juice, housemade cusabi & Asian garlic sauces. $11.90
Both exceptional. But the
Crispy Atlantic Calamari
Mediterranean style tossed in citrus olive vinaigrette or classic style served with cocktail sauce. $10.90
was the star of the night!
Service was superb! The team will know your name and treat you as if you are the only client in the house!
Do plan a visit...and then again....
We also thought value wise, with 2 drinks, 3 appetizers and one shared small plate of pasta at $75, this was a great value !
