Bien is a take out place but does have some limited outdoor seating. They could use an umbrella, or something to get more of the seating in the shade. That's my only complaint. The food is savory and is not 'fast food'. If I could cook that well I'd never leave the house for a meal. They take your order... More

Bien has the best sandwiches on the island--period. They combine fresh ingredients and create amazingly delicious sandwiches, corn on the cob, and other yummy delights! The pressed sandwich is a favorite and we tried the onion sandwich--spicy garlic, peppers, and sautéed sweet onions made for a deliciously messy sandwich that kept the vampires away! Cute little joint for carry out... More

So much flavor in every bite! Plus our ten month old loved the chickens running around outside. Great lunch place!

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant unexpectedly during a rain shower while riding bikes to sit it out and get a drink. While sitting I couldn't help noticing the sandwiches some people were eating near me and had to try it. Turns out they were Key West locals and let us know what they were having, the Caribbean...

Caribbean Latino ambrosia. Unpretentious, delicious, exquisite comfort food. Ditch the diet, pop a Corona and dive in. We returned almost daily to this magnetic, heavenly "food truck" without wheels. You can't see what's going on in the kitchen, why? Because it's MAGIC that's done back there. I left Key West with a tear in my eye and an inch on... More

Bien is off the beaten path, and definitely not a fancy place, but SO good! We went for lunch, and two of us split The Press with rice and beans. The roasted pork with banana peppers, carmelized onions and melted cheese was just perfect. Don't miss this place for a quick lunch stop.

We found Bien by accident, sheltering from rain. I think we were led there by a guardian angel, for the grilled Reuben mahimahi sandwich I ordered is the most memorable food I ate in three weeks in Florida. It was fresh and juicy and spicy- absolutely delicious! Watching the warm rain fall while seated at an outside bench, eating this... More

Cheap eatery place, wanted to come for more for dinner but they were closed. Although they mentioned that they are open for dinner. Quite a disappointment. However the lunch I got was good and tasty but the feeling of not enough. I will surely will come for more....

Pros - Amazing burrito, great flavors, fair prices, good customer service. Cons - Not open for dinner, only outdoor seating, most seats covered in case of rain, no ice available for drinks.

You must try the corn and the caramelized onions. Anything and everything else on the menu is fantastic. The only drawback that you could possibly find is the seating is extremely limited while you're waiting on your food and to eat. But all the people there are great so the good conversation and meeting new friends makes the time go... More
