We stayed at Hawks Cay over Thanksgiving break and ate at Alma two nights. The food was delicious and the service was terrific! Everything was timely, even though the resort was filled to capacity, we never waited long!

Was staying at Hawk's Cay, so this was a convenient choice to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my husband. We both ordered the ribeye special. We were pleasantly surprised that it was cooked impeccably despite it being bone-in. It's not very often such a cut is cooked so evenly. Sides were great as well and the vegetables popped with a...

This was a nice restaurant/bar with TV's. Little pricey, but very interesting food. Everything we had was very good. Disappointed that they weren't always open. The only indoor bar & it was closed before 10 p.m. the 2 different times we stopped by to have a drink??? Closed election nite as well. Would've been nice to sit there-have a drink-watch... More

We arrived late to the resort & could not find another eatery without getting back in the car and driving 7-10 miles. While the food and service were above average, we were in need of a simple, quick meal. The price was too much, even if it had been a planned special occasion.

Classy, high end dining. The food and service were excellent! It is pricey, but worth every penny. It's nice that it's in the main building so we ate there one night when it was raining and stayed warm and dry.

You don't usually hear of locals going to a resort for their bar/restaurant but Alma is our favorite spot. They have a phenomenal wine selection and drink menu. My guys favorite is the Brazilian Sunset. Their menu is well rounded with something for everyone. Very nice appetizers, small bites and entrées. Some of our favorites are pork belly, edamame, exotic... More

Had the Crab Stack salad and Ensenada Alma for starters - delicious. Sriracha Glazed Yellowfin and (we are so glad our waiter recommended it) the Grilled Churrasco. It is a skirt steak (i.e., tougher cut) but the flavor could not be beat. Highly recommended that you ask servers what the recommend for drinks as well. They know what's good and... More

Description
Culinary Fusion With A Duck Key Flair Just because this is The Keys doesn't mean you can't, on occasion, dress up for a lovely night out. This is why we created Alma, our own fine dining experience at Hawks Cay Resort. We call it elegantly informal. By that, we mean you don't need a tie but you shouldn't walk right off the fishing boat either. Our expert (and rather eclectic) chefs combine the rich heritage of Latin cuisine with the culinary secrets and spices of the islands for an inspired fusion of flavors. Alma is all about having a great night out. That can mean just the two of you. Or it can mean sharing the fun with some close friends. Whether it's a romantic table or chatting it up on our outdoor patio, we'll do our best to make it great. Alma is an escape for those seeking a night of romantic possibilities, slightly decadent fun and, of course, great food. Our genius chefs create bold Latin dishes inspired and infused with the flavors of the Caribbean to bring you a melting pot of deliciousness you won't find anywhere else in the Keys. Sip a selection straight-up from the world's greatest Rum Bar or try one of our Alma specialty drinks while deciding if you want the Seafood Paella, or the Grilled Churrasco, or the Baked Lobster or...wow that's a tough decision. After dinner, sample the international selection of fine rums at our bar, light up a hand-rolled cigar out on the veranda or just kick back by the fire and enjoy an elegant night out Hawks Cay style. Alma is located at Hawks Cay Resort, midway down the Florida Keys on the beautiful island of Duck Key. To get to Alma, take US-1 to mile marker 61 and follow the signs to Hawks Cay's lobby. Our valets will gladly park your vehicle and direct you to the restaurant.
