This restaurant is one of the top 5 greatest restaurants I have ever been to. I didn’t know what it was until I googled it, you would never know it was Haitian until you walk in. I walked in and the smell hit me, I...knew it was going to be good. Great family run restaurant with flavor out of this world.More

A friend told us about this place and the reviews in Trip Advisor were all so good we thought we would get off the beaten path and give it a try. We are happy we did. The location is on White Street and there was...plenty of free parking on the street. When you walk in you can smell the spices...the menu has something for everyone. We were trying to please normal, adventureous, vegan and gluten free eaters and everyone found something delicious to order. Our group had veggies, white rice and black beans, oxtail with red bean rice and veggies and chicken with rice and veggies. The veggies were fabulous...my favorite part of the meal for sure. The portions are large so go with an appetite. The owners/operators were friendly, helpful, accommodating and service was excellent.More

We visited twice on our 4 night stay in Key West. I've tried Haitian food before but this place had a different twist to it. The service was quick and very homely. You can tell this is a real family business and the food really...showcases the love of food and family. After your meal they serve a scrumptious slice of Key Lime & also a slice of Pumpkin pie, I'm not a huge pie person but it was very delicious. Definitely try this place out, the food is definitely a labor of love, we had the snapper fillet with rice and peas and veggies and also the Creole shrimp pasta, 10 out of 10.More

Mo's is always a must visit for me when in Key West. Heaping plates of home cooked classic Creole food that has you licking the plate. Due to the pandemic I ate mostly at outside places and Mo's was the only restaurant I went to...and ate inside. And they were well prepared. The chef who is a great guy (need to get his name after all these years) always had a mask on as did all the rest of the staff. There was sanitizer readily available as well and they had contactless payment options too. They are doing a heavy take out business now and people were not allowed in to get their food without a mask. I was the only diner inside as I ate and the chef treated me like royalty. I had the spinach quiche and then the grouper with the yummy dirty rice . After I cleaned every speck of food from my plate I was brought complimentary slices of key lime and pumpkin pie. Everything was so delicious as always. This is seriously some of the very best food in Key West. I highly recommend this awesome place and rave them for how they are dealing with the pandemic as well.More
