Description: Culinary Fusion With A Duck Key Flair Just because this is The Keys doesn't mean you can't, on occasion, dress up for a lovely night out. This is why we created Alma, our own fine dining experience at Hawks Cay Resort. We call it elegantly informal. By that, we mean you don't need a tie but you shouldn't walk right off the fishing boat either. Our expert (and rather eclectic) chefs combine the rich heritage of Latin cuisine with the culinary secrets and spices of the islands for an inspired fusion of flavors. Alma is all about having a great night out. That can mean just the two of you. Or it can mean sharing the fun with some close friends. Whether it's a romantic table or chatting it up on our outdoor patio, we'll do our best to make it great. Alma is an escape for those seeking a night of romantic possibilities, slightly decadent fun and, of course, great food. Our genius chefs create bold Latin dishes inspired and infused with the flavors of the Caribbean to bring you a melting pot of deliciousness you won't find anywhere else in the Keys. Sip a selection straight-up from the world's greatest Rum Bar or try one of our Alma specialty drinks while deciding if you want the Seafood Paella, or the Grilled Churrasco, or the Baked Lobster or...wow that's a tough decision. After dinner, sample the international selection of fine rums at our bar, light up a hand-rolled cigar out on the veranda or just kick back by the fire and enjoy an elegant night out Hawks Cay style. Alma is located at Hawks Cay Resort, midway down the Florida Keys on the beautiful island of Duck Key. To get to Alma, take US-1 to mile marker 61 and follow the signs to Hawks Cay's lobby. Our valets will gladly park your vehicle and direct you to the restaurant.

Very much enjoyed the service and the dinner at this restaurant in Hawk's Cay. Of course there is a bit of convenience charge in that you are on a scrap of land off the coast.

Wife and I spent another week at Hawks Cay and have become fairly knowledgeable of local places to eat. We opted to eat at Alma one night and found it inviting, clean with good staff. Server recommended their paella while my wife had 2 small plates. The paella was outstanding, loaded with large pieces of lobster, nice size shrimp, mussels, fish all with a delicate and delightful flavor.
Was actually enough to feed 2 people and I was hungry. We had option of sitting in outside patio area but found it a little nosier with music and fairly warm. Inside was cool and much more enjoyable. Actually went again 2 nights later for their camarones ajillo, crab stack, lava cake and a very nice bottle of Honig. Again outstanding.

I enjoyed Alma but honestly found that the restaurant lacked the atmosphere that one would associate with the cost. The food was of great quality and the presentation was almost there. We found that the lobby noise made the place feel a little off. Also, we felt like we were being shuffled through the meal instead of being allowed to enjoy the place. That may have been a function of the noise.

We had 5 nights at duck key and enjoyed one nights meal here. The food was very nice, indeed as people have commented, a little pricey. service was good and atmosphere nice, we ate outside, although the pool activity around the restaurant did not help to create the atmosphere of a fine dining restaurant. Defiantly worth a visit.

We had the Ceviche appetizer, which was outstanding. The lobster was quite good, and the short ribs had great preparation and was served with a very tasty red beans and rice side dish. It was pricey, but excellent. I recommend going a little later at night to avoid families, to keep the atmosphere private.
