Description: Cafe Sole has captured the hearts and palates of locals and visitors lucky enough to discover this culinary gem off the beaten path. By combining his French mastery of sauces with fresh locally caught seafood, John has created a menu unlike any on the island, where every dish is bursting with indescribable flavors. Mutton snapper in pesto and champagne, yellowtail in a beurre blanc of lobster or a rare hog snapper with red pepper zabaglione top a list of nightly specials. As for the classics, the Duck a L'Orange, Rack of Lamb with herb de Province and Lobster Bouillaise are as authentic as you will find this side of Paris. Chef Correa combines the best of both of his worlds, European and Caribbean to win the People's Choice and Best Entree awards at a recent Master Chefs Classic

“very good”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I had the hogfish which was fabulous. My husband had the scallop dish which was good but a bit overpriced for what it was. Overall the food was very good and the service was excellent. We would definitely go back.

“Marvelous!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The hogfish was the absolute best. Thoroughly enjoyed the lobster bisque and the artichokes. Great food, highly recommend this restaurant.

“What a find..!!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

My wife and I made a spur of the moment trip down to key west and stumbled upon Cafe Sole.
Our server mike picked our our wine for us to start, an un oaked Chardonnay.. It went so well with the hog fish and blackened grouper special.. Both A+
The "little treat" of angles on horseback was wonderful, as well the pecan pie with ice cream.
We will be back.!!!

“Overpriced”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We wanted to eat some place a little special for our last night in Key West. After reading reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor, we chose Café Solé. It is off the Main Street so it is a little quieter. From the outside it does not look like much it is very nice inside. It was comfortable and the service was good.

We both had the hog snapper which reviewers had talked highly of - and it was good - but not special. We both had appetizers that we excellent (beet salad and angels on horseback). We each had 2 glasses of wine and neither of us had dessert.

My biggest objection to this place is the price. We went during Happy Hour when all entrees were half price, and our bill was still over $100 (I think the original bill was about $150). Even at $100 I think the meal was over priced and we would not go back.
