My Brother had the blackened scallops and I had seafood pasta. The meal was fresh and the waiter was very pleasant and professional

We had had this restaurant highly recommended and it did not disappoint...service was excellent and very attentive...the outside bar was busy and made a super cosmo.....our meals were good but unles you like dry meatloaf that tastes like it was made with barbaque sauce order something different....it was OK but didn't live up to the rest of the food.....desert was good but there are other places in Key West that you can get better

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst on a bike ride along the back streets of Key West & decided to book for our "last supper" before leaving. The setting was beautiful, courtyard dining with subdued lighting, a fountain & frog mating calls - seriously! We ordered seafood rather than the steak as we were in Key West & could get good steak back home & are so glad we did. My husband had scallops as big as his fist, I'm not a big fish lover but I had the mahi mahi and cannot say how much I enjoyed it. The wine list was varied and not overpriced considering the distance travelled. Service was attentive but not in-your-face.

A hidden gem but well worth getting off the beaten track to find it.

Loved the courtyard....Loved the martini.....Loved the onion soup....Loved the service...loved the key lime pie....but so glad I ordered the wild salmon instead of the steak.
I keep hearing about the steaks flying in daily from Chicago...well, they should rethink that. The steak was overcooked and rather chewy.
If I want a steak, I'll continue to go the the real steakhouse in KW.
Otherwise the food and service was fabulous.
