“My new favorite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Love Paseo! From the flavorful black beans to the spicy rice to the fresh fill (shrimp, scallops, pork or chicken) to the yummy beet and greens salad, the food is consistently delicious! We usually split a dinner and then get a side of the elote corn-on-the-cob - a spectacular treat. You can order your spice/heat level 1-5 with 3 being just a perfect hair over medium. For about $15 we're both full which is a great value for Key West. While you probably wouldn't want to eat it every day (I would consider it ethnic same as I wouldn't want to eat Mexican or Chinese or Thai everyday) it's definitely on my regular rotation. And if you're in town on vacation, be sure to add this to your list of must-eat restaurants.

“Tons of Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The average person can split any entree from Paseo and get full. They have savory Caribbean food you shouldn't miss. Go when you're feeling very casual about atmosphere. You walk up to the counter to order. They serve their food on real plates that you clear yourself. It think this restaurant was built in an old gas station. It has very limited seating.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a great little place. You MUST try the corn which is mild and sweet. The food is great as is the price. Though it is a hike off Duval, try walking along the harbor and enjoying the boats. Just across the street is the great Old Time Bakery so you can grab a pastry for dessert or for breakfast the next morning. Don't pass this place up!

“worth the hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband looked up restaurants on Trip advisor for our last meal before we left Key West. it was worth the hike to its location 8 blocks off of Duval Street. We split the sandwich and each got a roasted corn on the cob. It was yummy. The only draw back was not enough tables, didn't mind eating outside, but it would have been easier to eat at a table.
