Description: A visit to our house is a unique way to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures as well as our treasures from the sea. The word Bagatelle comes from the French and means "a trifle or a little nothing", often referring to a light, fun, yet not too serious spring time romance. The French brought their history of fine cuisine and their love of wine to the Caribbean Islands. It is in this tradition that we have combined our French heritage, southern hospitality and the indigenous tastes of the Florida Keys into the meals we prepare today. Our chefs blend the best of our locally caught fresh seafood, fresh produce and delicious tropical fruits for our tropical seafood dishes.

Everything was amazing from start to finish . Plenty of warm baguette and fresh butter . My husband absolutely loved the mussel appetizer . I had the heirloom tomatoes with buratta and that was amazing as well . The entree choices were creative and different. I ended up choosing a sea scallop special with a Beurre Blanc and mango foam .

Seating on second floor balcony allows for entertainment as you can watch patrons from hogs breath across the street stumble in and out bar .

Wish we had more time to visit for brunch . There will definitely be next time!!

We went here twice-in one day! Once for the breakfast happy hour deal, which is a GREAT deal. $5 food and drink specials. Everything delicious. Our bartender was great to talk to and provided quality service. Decided to come back for the $5 lobster mac on the evening happy hour. It was crowded, and the service was deplorable, however I cannot mark them down given the contrast of what we experienced earlier in the day as well as how INCREDIBLE the mac was!! Had we not had to leave due to the hurricane, I would have been back for more deals!

Our hotel concierge recommended Bagatelle for dinner. We were really pleased, it was a lovely little house with outdoor verandas. We sat outside downstairs and thoroughly enjoyed Lobster Mac'n'cheese, the best Swordfish my husband has ever had! and finished with the best Key Lime Pie either of us has ever had. We even went back for lunch the following day, Grilled Fish sandwich and more Key Lime Pie!

Wow! We were so impressed by the food here we went 3 times during our stay. Each time the staff was great. But the food and atmosphere were the best we found. I understand many restaurants were closed because the season. But I would head back here without hesitation.

A little disappointed this trip with service and food. When we made the reservation we informed that it was our anniversary and had celebrated with them on our wedding day 20 years ago (with the entire wedding party) so were returning to celebrate our anniversary. It was also mentioned when we arrived on time for our dinner reservation so we were a little disappointed that there was no mention from anyone waiting on us, not even a “congratulations” - but not all restaurants acknowledge such occasions. We were still looking forward to a delicious meal and great service as we’ve had in the past. The food was ok but not great and the service was the same. It felt as though the waiter was too busy with other customers and we barely saw him. Both meals were a bit over cooked, dry and missing seasoning, but not enough too send back. This was our first such experience at Bagatelle and will give it another chance next time we’re in town hoping it was just a busy night and an anomaly.
