staying at AZUL - dining at Pierre's

Hi - we will be in the Everglades for 2 nights and then on to Key Largo for just 1 night.

We are staying at AZUL and having dinner at Pierre's in Islamorada - recommended by the folks at AZUL.

Has anyone stayed at AZUL or eaten at Pierre's ?

Thanks for the info.

Pierre's is good, and very expensive. (for the Keys) It's a good ride from Azul, don't drink too much wine! If you are driving that far for dinner, you may also try Ziggie'e and Mad Dog's. Not as tropical of an atmosphere, but super food.

I had been to Azul when it was Ricks. I know they have done a lot of work on it since then. Nice little property in the Upper Keys.

Thanks... they told us it was about 20 miles from AZUL to Pierre's. I know I could mapquest it, but thought you'd have a better idea - timewise - not miles.

Thanks again.

The food at the The Fish House is the best- and it is close to Azul-

Have a great trip!

20 -25 min sounds about right. You can't miss it. Head towards Key West from Azul. Azul is mile marker 104. Pierre's is MM 81.5 (there isn't really a MM sign but it's between 82 and 81.) Pierres is in a big complex with the World Wide Sportsman. This is a large barn like strucure that is fun to walk around in. It has an aquarium with game fish in it (snook, tarpon) and a big wooden boat that is somehow related to the boat that Hemmingway used.

Get to Pierre's before sunset. One of the best parts of the experience is having a drink on the beach as the sun slips into Florida Bay. Pierre's has a little sofa area in the sand.

The food at Pierre's is the best. FIsh House is also very good but you are comparing apples and tennis balls here. FH is inside, crowded, no reservations (but really fresh fish). If you have 2 meals in the Keys, FH is a suggestion. But Pierre's is elegant, lovely, and excellent meal. Try yellowtail snapper if you can.
