“A piece of paradise !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

The best place to relax, have a delicious meal and a great cocktail. You can't miss the sunset, one off the best.If you want to be in contact with nature and pure energy, that's the place. Definitely one of my favorites.

“Enjoyed our lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We visited Morada Bay Beach Café twice, once for lunch, and once for dinner. The lunch menu was great -- very much enjoyed the fried grouper sandwich, the kobe beef sliders, and the chicken ciabatta sandwich. It was a gorgeous day, so we sat at a beach table, and had great views of the water. It was pricey, but I was expecting that -- the view was awesome, and the food and service very good. We decided to go back for dinner, but found the dinner menu lacking -- no one in our group of 5 found anything that sounded really good. Most dinner items had an Asian flair to them and that just wasn't my cup of tea. When in the Keys, when getting really great, fresh seafood, why not just let the seafood shine on it's own, without trying to dress it up? Since nothing really stood out for us on the menu, and since the wind kicked up and it seemed like rain was likely, we decided to leave. I'd definitely return for lunch, but probably not for dinner.

“Great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

I came here for lunch on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. We got here around 2:00 so the lunch rush was gone. It was very peaceful with a single guy playing some island cover tunes. The view is spectacular. Service was very good. Food was OK; nothing special. You definitely come here for the atmosphere and to have a cocktail. A must while visiting Islamorada!

“Nice location but staff needs to bolstered”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

The location of this place is awesome. The seating is outside with tiki torches and toes in the sand. That said, the food was ok but the waitstaff horrible. We actually had out waiter walk away from us not once but twice while we were asking about menu items. The GM was somewhat helpful but did not seem to be someone with a strong restaurant background. Still worth it for the atmosphere.
