Their Sunday brunch was so worth the price. I was surprised by all the quality of the food. They had pate, sushi, raw tuna, caviar, raw oysters, shrimp, crab claws, full breakfast items, I can go on and on. The food was great with one or two items that lacked flavor but other then that no complaints. It was also nice to watch the cruise ships come in.

this was our 2nd trip to KW and once again staying at the Westin. The difference this time was our waiter, JJ! He is a treasure! He is efficient beyond belief, and has personaltiy plus! Your order comes out promptly and correctly I might add and you want for nothing. He just turns up at exactly the right time to check on you and has a sense of humor that will make your sides hurt from the fun- we went back to Bistro 245 for breakfast 2 more days in a row just because of JJ and specifically to request him- he is that good! The food was great too, he just makes it that much better!

If you are lucky enough to be in Key West you must go to the Bistro 245. You can sit outside by the water and watch the world go by and the food is outstanding. Lunch and dinner during the week are great but the Sunday Brunch is fabulous! Make sure you ask for J.J., he will never let your mimosa glass be dry, and the display of seafood, salads, desserts as well as the breakfast buffet are unbelievable. You know that when you go somewhere to eat and the local people are eating there as well you have found the right place!

We were tired after our trip down to Key West and decided to walk over to Bistro 245 which is part of the Westin. The location is great, right on the waterfront. We just had appetizers but they were excellent. My husband had onion soup and hush puppies and I had the crab cakes and avocado salad. The crab cakes were really crab balls with panko crumbs which were deep fat fried giving them a real crunchy outside and tasty filling. The avocado salad with crunchy onions was wonderful. Many are hesitant to try hotel restaurants, but these appetizers were great. Service was very attentive even though for this night anyway, we weren’t big spenders.

We go on a yearly trip to Key West and my first stop is always at the Westin drink wagon for one of Jimmy's (aka Mr. Mojito) delicious mojitos. Jimmy's mojitos are by far the best I've ever tasted. His mojitos inspired us to have a mojito party last summer where we served over 70 of Jimmy's perfect mojitos. The party was such a hit we plan on making it a summer tradition. Stop by the Westin before Sunset, look for the drink wagon and the green hat of Mr. Mojito, enjoy a show by the Catman and a spectacular sunset while sipping on a fantastic mojito.
