Description: Savor Florida Keys dining with award-winning tropical cuisine indoor or outdoor at Tranquility Bay Resort's own Butterfly Café. Butterfly Café captures the essence of island cuisine with an emphasis on quality, local ingredients and, of course, ocean fresh seafood in a beautiful airy Marathon restaurant setting. Open daily for dinner, the menu and wine list at Butterfly Café change seasonally. Children will delight in a special menu designed just for them. Dinner is served nightly from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at our restaurant in Marathon and reservations are encouraged. Dine outdoors on Butterfly Café's covered patio, or enjoy the impressive dining room inside with its soaring ceiling and casual yet sophisticated decor. Our dinner menu features tantalizing offerings like Florida Keys’ Shrimp Cocktail, Tropical Crab Cakes, Panko Encrusted Florida Grouper, Key Lime Pie, TDF 'To Die For' Sticky Toffee Pudding and more. Casual resort attire recommended at this Florida Keys restaurant.

“Service and food fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Wait staff extremely professional and friendly. Our waitress Nancy was a gem. The menu was the perfect size--not too limiting but not so big that you knew quality was sacrificed for variety.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

During my stay at Tranquility Bay in July I had the BEST dinner at Butterfly Cafe! The food was fantastic, service exceptional, and once again I had the pleasure of being greeted by the front desk staff and Barry, Front Office Manager. I am looking forward to my return to Tranquility Bay and the Butterfly Cafe in the near future!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

To celebrate my husband's birthday while we were on vacation, we dined at Butterfly Cafe. The Samba salad, mozzarella and tomato salad and tuna napoleon appetizers were all fresh and delicious starters. Scallop Risotto, filet mignon and key lime pie were great.
