Excellent menus. 4 of us all had different items and all were excellent. Portions not skimpy. Desserts are also wonderful. Know that they don't serve breakfast or lunch, and close at 9 pm.

we stayed at Tranquility Bay and the Cafe is located inside the lobby. My family all enjoyed their meals but my salad was so good. Im not sure what the dressing was but if you go, order the butterfly salad.

There are many restaurants in the Middle Keys, but not too many of them that we would call ideal for a delicious, quiet, romantic dinner. The atmosphere at Butterfly is just that though. The food is fresh, and served in generous portions. We ordered the...More
