Lightkeepers is the full service breakfast spot at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne. There is a full breakfast menu, with ala carte items as well. Good quality but a bit pricey to begin the day, even at the Ritz.

For the price, it should have been much better. Outside table was quite pleasant. Server was overpowering and food took forever. Appetizers was bland. Main courses were much better than starters..

We had a wonderful table on the outdoor patio and that was the best thing about our dinner. Service was painfully slow. Main courses only appeared after a one hour and thirty minute wait and three complaints to the restaurant manager. No explanation was given....More

What a great experience — service, food and atmosphere. The waiter was outstanding, he went so far as to email us the recipes for the dishes we were excited about. By far the best restaurant on Key Biscayne.
