We had a wonderful dinner at Hideaway Cafe this past Friday. Both the service and food were perfect. There were 9 of us and we all enjoyed everything we ordered. Chef Freda greeted us when we walked in and personally served us our desert at...the end. Definitely book this gem in advance and don't give up calling for a reservation. I finally got through and it was worth the multiple calls to finally secure a dinner reservation. We can't wait to return!More

This place was amazing! The chef owns the restaurant. She called to confirm our reservation, she greeted us upon arrival and made sure we enjoyed our meal. This was one of the best meals we had in the Keys and by far, it was the...best view! Will definitely come back!More

Dinner at Hideaway with my wife while on vacation in nearby Marathon was one of the highlights of our trip. The attentive service, the quaint seating overlooking the beautiful beach below, and the high quality and superb preparation of our food made for a simply...perfect evening!!! Also, be aware that you must call to get a confirmed reservation. With that said, I owe a huge thank you to Chef Frida, who was very understanding in accommodating my apparent inability to make a valid reservation on a tough night for her and her staff. I will be forever grateful! :-) So if you are looking for a memorable and romantic place to have a wonderful dinner with your better half when you are in the Keys, this is the perfect place!More

Don’t look anywhere else ! Make sure to get a reservation as you will be delighted with this Gem ! Fine dining at its finest ! The service was incredible, friendly , professional. Johnathon provided exceptional service , there when we needed him , not...when we were enjoying probably the best meal we have had in the United States. I had shrimp bisque ( absolutely to die for ! ) and the Hideaway seafood special Francaise . Hogfish is my favorite but I am concerned I may never enjoy it again as Executive Chef Freda prepared it to such absolute perfection , the bar is now set very high . It flaked with the touch of a fork , not killed twice! I’m certain I have never had scallops as incredible as the ones that complimented the dish . Chef Freda even met with us , which astonished me as anyone that talented must have a lot to do . Be good to these people , request a reservation, and enjoy a delicious meal that will blow your mind . Thank you to the entire staff and everyone who made this night , meal , experience truly wonderful!More

We found out about this restaurant while staying at the Rainbow Bend Resort where it is located. It was a birthday dinner for me. They made room for us on short notice. They are usually booked. Make reservations. They do have early bird between 4:30...and 5:15 I heard. We had the French Onionsoup to start with which was done beautifully. I had Beef Wellington for the first time. I loved every bite. Done perfectly. They gave me a Strawberry Mousse which was delicious. My wife had the Chicken Franchisee which was very good. Chef Frieda is wonderful. Came out to see how things were. You can taste the love in her cooking. Cant wait to come back again to this little gem in the keys. Look for the Rainbow Bend Resort and you will find Hideaway.More

Wow what a true culinary experience!! We were lucky to get reservations on a Saturday via Frieda. Keep calling for reservations as it may take you a few days! It’s worth the effort!! If you arrive by 5 (with reservations) you can eat off the...early dining menu where everything is $17.95. My husband and daughter’s boyfriend choose the duck. The boyfriend loved it but my husband didn’t as he said it was over cooked. I thought our daughter’s lamb was great and my husband said the lamb was the best lamb he ever tasted. I felt the same way about the hogfish! Let me add that the bread and the tapenaude that comes with your meal is also sensational! I wanted to lick the bowl! 😉Lastly the service is equally as fabulous ! We’ll be back!More

Two couples for dinner. Unbelievably good. Doesn’t look too hot from outside but is up scale on the inside. Host (Billy) and serving staff were outstanding. Had Hogfish dinners that were out of this world. Great escargot apps and deserts to die for. We are...going back next week!!!More
