While at a local tiki bar we asked the server about any good places to eat as it was our wedding anniversary. She suggested a few places but told us this place would be the best for a great sunset. We were not disappointed in the sunset but she didn't tell us how great the food would be. We got... More

This is a great place in Islamorada to view spectacular sunsets. Next to the Morada Bay Beach Cafe so you can sit outside. Food was good. Service was a little slow, but when you're on vacation with no schedule, it wasn't a big deal.

First pulled up the smell was gross. Went to be seated for two. The host said that they had a table in side and i said i didn't want inside what's wrong with this table and she said it was for 6 to 8 people and I said they are all for 6 to 8 and they had at least... More

This is one of the nicest properties in the keys. You can dine indoors or out. I highly recommend dining on the beach and watching the sunsets. The food and service are very good.

We stopped on our way to Key West for lunch. What an amazing place! Relax outside on the little beach or dine inside, either way it is very charming. I believe that was the best soup I have ever tasted. We had a burger also but were too full to eat the burger after the soup. I recommend Morada Bay... More

Went to Islamorada to eat at Pierre's - but sadly it was closed as they were undertaking their annual big clean. Ended up next door (same owners). They had just undergone their annual clean and may be they were not up a running properly. We ordered the shrimp ceviche - not really a ceviche but a shrimp salad, not much... More

Fantastic location and two overall good experiences. We went on one occasion for the full moon party, which was nice but costly to get in to, particularly as we had small children and wouldn't be staying too late.but I expect they need it to be pricey to limit numbers as it was very busy. As such service was slow but... More

You start of with 2 overall good experiences which is good. We're sorry that we did not meet all your expectations. Every visit is different and unique and some are better than others as you said "overall good". You also said you had 6 visits and 2 were only OK...that's a pretty good average. As pertain to the Full Moons... More

We paid 20 bucks each, so 40 bucks to get in to the full moon party. Nothing out of this world, so the 40 bucks was a rip off. But the actual restaraunt was very nice. Food was gourmet. It's expensive. Small portions. Food tasted good. Drinks were strong and nice. The view is amazing and very romantic.

Hi Carrie, I don't know how you consider $20 per person for our Full Moon party a rip off....I consider it a real bargain. For $20 each you got the pleasure of 2 great bands, a slew of street entertainers, an awesome 30 minute costumed Junkanoo Bahamian parade, a grandiose 5 minute fireworks display, and a late night DJ all...
