We had an excellent meal here, eating at one of the picnic tables outside. You must get the roasted corn on the cob! The sauteed prawns are great, too.

Went on a rainy day and the line was out the door. Do not leave without ordering the smothered corn and just know the sandwiches are very big but so tasty that you're not going to want to share. Our group of 4 remarked how great Paseo was days after and it was our favorite lunch spot the entire week. This has made the list for mandatory spots in my book.

We had lunch here only once and everyone was very complimentary of their choices. We tried the spicy seafood sandwich, the west Caribbean bowl, Caribbean roast Plato, grilled corn, and black beans. Very fresh - inspired to try to cook these things at home. It's very small and casual so we took the food back to our house. Too bad there isn't more outside seating and coffee wasn't available when we were there. Only go all the way with "spicy" on the seafood sandwich if you really mean it - because they do!

Recently our family stopped by to pickup an order from Paseo. We knew it would be crowded - what else can you expect with such great food, high Trip Advisor ranking, and the busiest time of the year in Key West. We also knew that they don't have a lot of seating, so we planned to eat ours at home. Also, it's not instant food - that's way it tastes so good.

I had the #8 and the roasted corn. Best corn dish in the world! Food is made with skill and love.

We had to go to Paseo because it had been rated the highest by many sources for Key West. Absolutely wonderful sea food sandwiches, but the incredible treat was the grilled corn on the cob. Had to go back numerous time for other sandwiches but especially to have the grilled corn again. It is a very small order at the counter place with very little outside seating. But a must visit if you go to Key West. Many very good much more expensive restaurants their but this is a special place to go.
