Description: A visit to our house is a unique way to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures as well as our treasures from the sea. The word Bagatelle comes from the French and means "a trifle or a little nothing", often referring to a light, fun, yet not too serious spring time romance. The French brought their history of fine cuisine and their love of wine to the Caribbean Islands. It is in this tradition that we have combined our French heritage, southern hospitality and the indigenous tastes of the Florida Keys into the meals we prepare today. Our chefs blend the best of our locally caught fresh seafood, fresh produce and delicious tropical fruits for our tropical seafood dishes.

“Great location and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2015 NEW

We had dinner here on a Thursday night. We sat upstairs on the outside balcony and had a great view of Duval. The service was very good- the waitress was friendly and another guy kept our water glasses constantly filled.
All 3 of us enjoyed our dinners. If I had any complaint at all, it would be that the grilled lobster that I ordered was actually slightly overcooked. It was a little rubbery but still had good flavor.
Overall, a good restaurant with a very convenient location. Worth a try.

“Inviting but disappointing...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2015 NEW

Our concierge recommended this restaurant and we were excited when we saw it - charming, balcony tables, great ambience. Unfortunately, our experience fell short of our expectations. Service was extremely slow and food was just average. Not sure if it was what we ordered or if we just hit it on a bad night, so we would probably try it again. However, if you only have one night in Key West, you can do better.

“Smoked salmon platter was delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

We loved this place for Sunday brunch. We ordered the smoked salmon platter with bagel, cream cheese, and fresh tomato. It was unbelievable fresh and good. Also had the breakfast burrito which was also delicious but paled in comparison to the salmon. Very good!

“Bagatelle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

We noticed this restaurant because of its white tablecloths, and since we were celebrating our anniversary with our trip to Key West, we thought white tablecloths looked like a good place for our anniversary dinner. And, WOW, it was. The food was excellent as was the service. Each of the four of us ordered a different entrée and all were delicious!!
