Scott, the owner stopped by our table several times and shared recipes and offered us a complimntary after dinner cocktail to go with our delicious dessert!!!! Vanilla ice cream like you have never tasted before!!!!! This restuarant will always be our go to spot whenever we are in the keys

“Great Location & View, Great Food and ever Better Service..”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Wow, the reviews about this place are not wrong... It is in a superb location, most of the seats look over the ocean. We tried a variety of items including Apps and Desserts all where superb. I had a Cherryaki Teriyaki Chicken it was absolutely amazing. I also had a side of grilled pineapples which went great with the grilled chicken. We had a server that was absolutely amazing his name was Jason. He was very friendly, knew the menu and very attentive but not to the point of being bothersome. Also something RARE in this day and age, the Owner Scott came by the table to check and chat with us... A SUPERB experience all the way and will definitely be returning soon.

“Wonderful dinner!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

My husband and I were in Key West last week and had the pleasure of having dinner at Kaya Island Eats at MM 14.5. The food was phenomenal especially the Pacific Rim Tuna Poke. Our waitress was attentive and helpful. The owner Scott was there that evening and could not have been nicer! Great personal touch! To top it all off our view of sunset from the restaurant was superb. It is about 10 miles north of Key West but so worth the short drive!!

“ABSOLUTELY THE BEST IN THE KEYS!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This restaurant is by far the best of the Florida Keys eateries, hands down!!! The owner, Scott makes certain that your dinner is perfect from beginning to end, and the waitstaff is incredible as well. Food quality is outstanding, portions are generous, and the chefs and kitchen staff all contribute to this amazing restaurant. I must also mention the food is beautifully presented and the restaurant itself is clean, inviting, with a very wonderful karmic vibe. Just a short drive from downtown Key West, you will be delighted that you had this dining experience away from the beaten path and it will leave a wonderful memory on your palate and soul.

“Excellent, excellent !”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Thank you so much Kaya team for a great meal this evening! The food was really good - burger, skirt steak, sea bass, coconut curry and prawns for the the youngest family member! But the whole experience was made with friendly waiting on staff , Amber and the owner Scott who both went out of their way to make our night. Thank you so much - it was a pleasure and if we had another week in Key West we would definitely be back !
