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.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary while in the keys this year and chose the cafe since it was ranked #1 and it was located at the Tranquility Bay resort where we were staying! Friendly and accommodating staff who were helpful (Shandy). Try the conch chowder - a classic. Also great was the tuna Napoleon. Main fish dishes (grouper or snapper or mahi mahi) are all good but the portions are huge! Beautiful setting inside or outside. Certainly more refined than other restaurants in marathon but still relaxed.

We ate here our last night in town - we were staying at the resort. It was good - and the service was great - and the ocean breezes and outdoor dining was very nice. But I would say that it was overpriced for what we had. The cheese plate appetizer was great with some good wine though!

exceptional all the way thru. five of us had a variety off the menu and each meal was rated excellent in our group. i had the seafood bake, could not have been better, another best was the app crab cakes our friend said they were the best of the keys. my beautiful bride had the yellowtail and she loved that also. we were to full for dessert even with a very tempting menu list of them. try it for a special night outside or in. our waitress (malissa) mo i believe she said to call her was the best, ask for her you won't be dissapointed.

Went here with my girlfriend and quickly found out why it is rated #1 in Marathon, FL. Some of the best food, service and ambience I've had anywhere in the Keys!
