We arrived late and were able to take advantage of the fact that the people who had reservations never showed. We ate out on the terrace/porch. The service was friendly, the atmosphere was magical. It was February but warm and lovely in Marathon. I knew the Butterfly Cafe was listed as one of the best restaurants in Marathon and the rating is well-deserved. The smoked fish dip was the best and I'll now rate everyone else's against the Butterfly Cafe's. I had the special that night, which was a Panko-crusted grouper. Not sure what my husband had. I was too focused on my own plate!
