“If you're in the Middle-Keys you must have dinner here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

My wife and I had dinner here last week (Aug. 2014) and it was absolutely perfect. Our server Cheryl couldn't have been more pleasant and made very good recommendations regarding selections. The restaurnt offers inside dinning and porch seating. We chose to dine on the porch for the scenery, which was very pleasant even in August. I had the grouper and my wife had the coconut shrimp. Both of our dinners were perfectly prepared and we thoughroughly enjoyed them. We finished with their very different, but delicious, key-lime pie. It is a work of art in itself (see the posted photos). The restaurant setting is beautiful so plan a little extra time to walk down along the waterfront. If you're looking for an elegant but casual dinner in the keys, this is the place. Any trip we take to this area will definitely include another visit.

“The best dinner on our whole holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Absolutely delicious, I had the Mahi Mahi and my partner had the Scallop Risotto; we still can't stop thinking about the food! Key Lime Pie for dessert was heavenly, all the options looked good if only we could eat them all! Service was also really good, we had an attentive waitress and the atmosphere was relaxed yet sophisticated. Although slightly on the pricier side, we would happily go back. Highly recommended.

“Great Food in the Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Lots of places to eat in the Keys, but tough to find a true 5 Star experience. I would say The Butterfly Cafe exceeded my expectations, great fresh food, fantastic friendly service !
