We sought a unique dining experience and mini-reunion for a group of 5 couples who have been connected for 50 years...and LPI filled the bill. From taking a 15-minute boat ride to the island, the ocean & sunset views, the roaming Key deer , the super service and the tasty foods (appetizers to desserts), all made for a very enjoyable...

Had dinner at one of their waterfront, beach tables. The food was terrific but the setting was unforgettable. We watched the setting sun and the errant key deer as we enjoyed our dinner. The food was very good but you are clearly paying for the enchanting and unmatched setting.

This was a perfect combination of ambiance, food, service and overall dining experience. From checking in at the welcome center to the boat ride to the island, to the dining area, to the server, to the meal, to the dessert on the beach and even the visit by the local Key Deer, this was a great night. Very romantic if... More

We have enjoyed every meal and every dish in The Dining Room at Little Palm Island. The service is impeccable from when you walk into the doors until the last boat has left the dock and the island is quiet. Never miss dessert. The grouper or lobster are to die for! Oh I am ready to go back.

This is a 4 - 5 star restaurant on a beautiful tropical island. Accessible only by boat or seaplane. The view is magnificent, especially at sunset. Dine in the dining room, the veranda, or beachside. Just exquisite !

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here at a beach table. It was breathtakingly beautiful and the service was attentive. For dinner I had the ahi tuna entree which was very well prepared, it came with cilantro polenta, crumbled quest fresco, tiny tortilla chips, and ancho butter sauce. It was awesome! My husband got the duck breast served with candied... More

Little Palm Island is a special restaurant in a special location! We had dinner last night under the stars, overlooking the ocean and a bright moon listening to a string quartet. The food and service was top notch. Yes, it is very expensive but I believe it is worth the price for a special occasion. We shared a wonderful Caesar... More
