When people say Santiago's is off the beaten path, it's true! We weren't staying in Key West and had trouble finding parking since Santiago's is in a residential area. After finding parking and walking over, we were hoping this place would be worth it, and it was! The inside is very warm, rustic, and modern, and quite small, so I would definitely make reservations (we did). There is outside seating, but your view is a run-down residential area. Our waiter was wonderful - friendly, informative, and attentive. We had the Avocado and Pear Salad, which was very good. I had the red sangria, and we discovered that between 3-6pm they have Happy Hour which means half-priced drinks and a selection of 4 $5 tapas. We ordered 2 of the $5 tapas, the frogs legs (seemed frozen and a little chewy) and empanadas (absolutely delicious), as well as shrimp & chorizo skewers (fantastic), spanikopita (very good), and beef short ribs (our favorite of all the small plates). We didn't have dessert because we were saving ourselves to head over to Better Than Sex for dessert. Overall, Santiago's Bodega had delicious tapas and fantastic service in a nice atmosphere.
