The food here is amazing! There is likely a wait, but that's only because the food is so good! They are quick to get you your order. Nice outdoor seating and good spot off the busy duval street.

This sidewalk café has delicious food. The Cuban roast pork and beef sandwiches were excellent, as was the rice. We noticed that they do a very active take-out service as well. We sat next to some locals who told us they come to Bien at least once a week. Now that we have eaten there we understand why. Based on... More

All of our sandwiches were absolutely delicious . The pork sandwich is the best I have ever had anywhere . The corn on the cob is out of this world and should not be missed. Not alot of seating to sit and eat but sooo good.

This little sidewalk cafe may not have the best location, but the food is delicious. We shated the cuban roast pork dinner, enough for two, with the delicous roast corn. Great for take out and the flavors really reminisce of Cuba.

In my book, you have to be very confident in your culinary skills to serve chicken thighs on a sandwich. And let me tell you what... they do not disappoint! The Bien Marinade with the large onion slivers, slightly charred on the edges, was just outstanding!

Had the steak sandwich which was just heavenly. SOOOO good! Only downside was the wait - it took 40 minutes to get the food after we ordered, but it was worth it!

This restaurant was highly rated, and sometimes, I've felt that the highly rated ones do not live up to the hype. But Bien did. The food was great. We had the Caribbean Roast and the Palomilla Steak. The roasted pork was great, somewhat like a gently seasoned carnitas. The steak was amazing, some of the best-tasting beef I've had. I... More

We LOVED this place! It was jammed so a bit difficult to negotiate since all the eating spaces were outside wherever one could find a spot during a crowded lunchtime. But it was worth it. Folks were friendly and allowed the 4 of us to crowd in. Food was awesome, atmosphere Key West Funk! Highly recommended (although I will say... More

We expected tables inside, but one of the best things about our short vacation in Key West was that we never ate inside, even the breakfast buffet at our hotel had an option to sit on the porch. I had chicken thighs, enough leftovers for lunch for 2 the next day. My husband had scallops and he ate the whole... More
