Santiago's Bodega is a unique restaurant located in the heart of Bahama Village, off the beaten path and away from the tumultuous crowds.

We loved this restaurant! Tapas plates are just the right size; the service was great; our front porch table was in the perfect setting. We definitely recommend :)

My wife and I visited here on the occasion of our 36th Wedding Anniversary. The concierge at our hotel really really wanted us to try Blue Heaven but we decided to let Trip Advisor speak into our Key West experience.

The service was really attentive and the atmosphere tranquil. We had a pitcher of White Sangria--very, very good! We had the French Onion Soup which was every bit as good as the best up North (eg. Ruth's Chris).

The Bruschetta was OK but we found it had too much Balsamic Vinegar that made it taste "harsh". Our signal is dying so we're going to have to end our review here! We'd be back in a flash--this place is very, very good.

Came here with my husband last minute, made an 8:45 reservation that afternoon and were worried it would be cleared out by then, but luckily it seemed to be popular early as well as later on. It's tapas style and we had the following excellent items: carpaccio, brussel sprouts, cheese plate, dates, beef tenderloin and puffy pastry with portabella mushroom. All the food was delicious. We had a couple of very nice dry reds to accompany it, but they have fun sangrias we didn't try. The wait staff is friendly, but very rushed off their feet. No extraneous words for these folks! Still, once you stopped being anxious that you were going to have poor service, it was great. It's on this little back street, and the porch isn't much, but it's got a couple of trees and lights to make it seem more enclosed and special even though it's almost right on the street with a short lawn. We really enjoyed it, it was so unique and clearly a hub for a lot of locals as well as people like us who showed up because of a good trip advisor rating. Our waiter was trying really hard to sell this bar called The Green Parrot a few blocks away because it had live (that night New Orleans style) music. Well, it was on our way home so we stopped outside to listen. The music was AWESOME, and it seemed pretty laid back, we stood outside for ages listening. I would not go to Key West again without going to this restaurant or that bar, we had a perfect night.

We had a wonderful lunch, sitting outside in the dappled shade. We shared four tapas dishes and a salad, which was plenty because the portions are a bit larger than we're accustomed to for tapas. Highly recommended, and we'll definitely go back when we're next in Key West.
