Firstly the setting of this restaurant is second to none, there are tables next to the bay where the sun sets, truly lovely. We were recommended this place as one of the best in Islamorada so were surprised when the food was not that great, maybe we had an off night? We had tuna tartare which was a bit mushy, we had lobster which was chewy and mussels which were like warm. On the positive side the crab cakes were lovely. The service was not the usual high standard of the US either. So all in all I think the price you pay for the food is for the sunset rather than the actual food, which is a bit disappointing.

Morada bay beach cafe was just what I was looking for! A great place to dine with family and friends. Although the food is a bit pricy, the ambiance and service is worth it! I would recommend getting outdoor seating. The beach front restaurant is gorgeous with musicians performing by the ocean on certain days. The tapas are great, with fresh seafood. Jade, the server, is a breath of fresh air and provides great and timely service. Definitely the best of Islamorada.

We stumbled upon The Beach Cafe at Morada Bay; it's next door to the World Sportsman store with the Zane Grey lounge on the second floor where we were heading for a drink. That place is worth a look-in, but have your drink at Morada Bay.

The MB Beach Cafe is a good deal more sophisticated and quieter than the usual Keys bars. Both the drinks and the food are more pricey, but the atmosphere is worth it. Open-air bar, and tables right on the sand of a lovely beach. Very scenic, polished, and festive.

Beautiful view from our table on the white sandy beach. Great service. Food was top notch - tasty, fresh and delicious! The atmosphere was wonderful. There was a singer/guitar player performing while we ate our dinner. One the best place we ate at during our stay in Islamorada.

This place is just what you are looking for in the Florida Keys!
It has fantastic atmosphere a very clean good-looking restaurant opens up to the bay plenty of room for the kids to run and explore adult upscale atmosphere but still very kid friendly think candlelit on the beach while your kids are having a good time too
Great drinks, food was just okay but I feel like that's what you get in the Florida Keys lots of fried
