“Excellent food, fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Was really pleased we decided to walk along to Morada Bay for dinner as when we came through the garden to the restaurant we were delighted with the setting on the beach under the palm trees, just as the sun was going down.
The service was spot on and the menu was great, my husband had the swordfish and it was cooked to perfection. The cocktails were pretty special too - try them.

“Great setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Right on the beach .You can eat with your feet in the sand,always a treat.
Food and service mixed.Some good some bad. We actually were served our meal and had no cutlery.No one around so we went inside and found our own.
Went to the toilets but decided not to when I had had a look in.

“Everything Pierre's is not”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Great beach, great views, lovely tables under the Palm trees (felt like in the Caribbean) and actually better food than Pierre's next door (same property I believe).
Avoid wasting money in the spooky mansion and come here for fun and very decent food.

“Great lunch !!!! Outstanding service !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Outstanding lunch was enjoyed by our party. We sampled all aspects of the menu, from the conch fritters and cocktails to the "BEST" calamari we have had in recent history. Lightly breaded and fried to a delicate crunch. Tender and superb are words that were exclaimed by several. The yellowtail snapper, tuna and conch ceviche and other plates were marinated or cooked to order and precision. The beverages were cold and contiously served with a smile from Christine. We had pondered the thought of leaving, but Christine had enticed us to stay for some creme brulee and after-lunch coffee drinks that put the finishing touch on a wonderful afternoon in the blustery breeze of Hurricane Sandy. This will be a definite stop every visit to the Keys.

“A Sunset View, but skip the food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Good location with live music. Nice setting with dining tables scattered over the well-groomed bay side beach. Atmosphere was really nice but that was about it. Spendy for food quality. The grouper did not taste fresh and had that "I'm just about to turn spoiled" taste. Go for the sunset and maybe a beer (drinks tasted pre-mixed) and dine someplace else. Service was attentive and good. The 'olive dip' and crackers were very good. Great location to view a Keys sunset.
