Description: Martin's surprises the guest with a classic and tropical mix. As soon as one arrives, one feels surrounded by European sophistication with a touch of the playfulness of the tropics-just like our menu. All sections-formal dining area, lounge and garden are flexible as are our menus from formal classic European cuisine to informal/ tropically inspired tapas, appetizers and desserts. In addition to a full complement of imported champagnes and imported and USA wines, the bar provides a complete range of tropical and classic cocktails. The clarity and quality of style that surrounds you in Martin's reflects the menu's flexibility and quality from a Martini to a weekend brunch to a formal dinner to a banquet or evening of dancing in a chic, cosmopolitan setting. As soon as one arrives in Martin's, one feels surrounded by European sophistication with a touch of the playfulness of the tropics-just like our menu!

“Great and efficient service, beautiful outdoor seating”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Martin's offer great food regardless of whether you'd like steak or lobster (or why not do both? Fantastic surf and turf is found here too!). The service is efficient, the staff friendly, and the food - great. If you are into your wines, the wine list is quite something too.
Beautiful seating outdoors under green palm trees swaying in the wind, and perhaps the best Martini menu in town.

“Best meal of our entire trip”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Martins is a haven of elegance without being stuffy...Tapas (we tried 5) were absolutely delicious and had a beautiful presentation. The martinis were equally delicious.(We tried several of these too!) They have an intimate courtyard with tables and couches or you can also eat inside. Go to relax and enjoy wonderful food and equally wonderful service.

“Good food, crummy service”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Entered and they sat us immediately next to the only other table in the restaurant. Odd to say the least. Service was very average for an expensive establishment. Wouldn't go back. Try Michael's or Louis' backyard or Banana Cafe - much better overall experience.

“Best Sunday Breakfast”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The eggs Benedict are the best in Key West. I can also highly recommend the seafood omelet which is filled with scallops, shrimp, and grouper. This restaurant, right on Duval, has an elegant back courtyard which is a romantic place to spend a Sunday morning.

“A hint or more of German Cusine”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The food is excellent and I love sitting in the backyard surrounded by palm trees. (The interior of the restaurant is too modern for my taste, therefore I always make a reservation and ask for a table outside). I am also consistently impressed with the service. Last time I got a fresh decaf made in a French Press. It makes the difference.
P.S. My husband didn't like his Wiener Schnitzel.
