Upon the recommendation of a work colleague, went here for lunch during a recent visit to Key West and was not disappointed. We did not have reservations and we lucked out being seated at a table on the outdoor patio, under a large umbrella, and with a lovely view of the ocean. Our lunch was very delicious, including one of the best Key Lime pies I ever ate, and so too the attentive and friendly service. I look forward to returning here again!

Beautiful view, went for lunch, had the snapper sandwich...I typically love snapper, this did not taste very fresh and the roll was dry. Hubby had the smoked pastrami salmon and said it was ok.
We had looked forward to eating here, had hoped for something more...have had better fish at other restaurants in Key West. We usually come here for drinks and the view.

We couldn't get dinner reservations so opted for a late lunch a day later. A couple in front of us were complaining that they had reservations but the restaurant didn't have them. The host seemed flustered by this and barely acknowledged us, telling us to wait. Twenty minutes later another host noticed and asked why we were there. He immediately got us seated. Our appetizers were late in arriving. The food was very good, the view is nice, but I'm not sure I would return.

The view from the patio is priceless. The beautiful sunset, lull of the waves and the exclamation point on a wonderful gastronomic experience. The best part of the meal had to be the apple crumb dessert!!

Don't leave Key West without eating here.

This place fills up fast, especially the outdoor seating right before sunset so making reservations is highly recommended.

Service and knowledge of waiting staff is excellent. Food and drinks are both delicious, It is pretty pricey but totally worth it for the quality of ingredients, top-notch service and the romantic ambience. They change their menu seasonally so I wouild love to come back again and let them ticklt my tastebuds once more.

Highly recommended for a romantic night out.
