Restaurant details
Good for: Romantic
Description: Euro Garden Cafe, Restaurant is located directly on Duval Street. Walking distance to Key West Fishing trips, Mallory Square, Hemingway House, this romantic restaurant with full bar is in the middle of what Key West has to offer. We are a European style restaurant with the most popular foods from different European countries. We have foods from, Czech republic, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Germany and Hungary. And of course some Key West specials. Our chef has cooked in most of these countries and knows how to make the food as delicious as it is there. We have an elegant style dining experience for a reasonable price

“Stay Away! Worse Service Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

We got talked into eating here by a barker on the street. He was kind and pleasant. We took a chance. It didn't pay off. We ordered the conch fritters. They were tasty and a nice portion. We then ordered sandwiches with fries. The sandwiches were put together poorly, one bite and everything fell apart. Then after the second bite...we found a hair on the plate in the fries. The manager/owner was called over and he told us "just don't eat the fries." When we seemed unhappy about his solution he became aggravated. After some debate he finally stomped off and took the plate off the check. All-in-all this was our worse dining experience in Key West. Save yourself some money and a headache and just go to the Conch Shack right up the street. Much better food and much, much better service.

“Will never eat here again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Service was incredibly slow! Food was terrible. Tasted like it came from a can. Fish was way over cooked. Not even edible. Owner was busy socializing in the bar and never even came by the table.

Worst eating experience I have had in ages.

“Great little hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

I am surprised at the other reviews, as the people sitting opposite us also agreed the food was great. We were also enticed in by the lady at the front, no chance we would have chosen it otherwise, very glad we did though. If you are there try the Mahi Mahi or the Chicken Curry, they were both delicious and the place was nice and quiet unlike the rest of Duval St.

“Jungle Hideaway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

The greeter on the street yanked us in . We were looking for something different ....and we got it. The walkway back to the restaurant had misters that were way too much. Everything was slippery, even our table was wet. It was a nice little jungle hideaway with soft lighting and plenty of trees and plants.Our waitress spoke very broken english and couldn't understand much of what we were saying. We ordered the German schnitzel with red cabbage & potatoes , the cabbage was good. Our friends ordered a steak.......wrong move. Maybe...... if ya wanna sneak away with a hot date for some drinks and maybe a sandwich? Nice secret hideaway.

“Nice Atmosphere/Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

The greeter on the sidewalk convinced us to go in and have lunch, but we may have enjoyed it elsewhere. The food was just average, including the Key Lime Pie. The atmosphere was unique in that it was quaint, like a secret garden. We only had time for 1 meal while in Key West...a different choice would have been better.
