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.

Ate dinner here while staying at the Tranquility Bay and let me say it has to be one of my top dining experiences of all time! We were celebrating my parent’s 45th Wedding Anniversary and my 40th Birthday so we wanted something to remember. Boy did the Butterfly Café come through. Great ambiance and very romantic.

I had the black snapper fillet which was plump, flaky and bursting with flavor. The grouper was to die for and melted in your mouth. The freshly baked bread and sides were very tasty. Dessert was a chilled key lime pie which was excellent. Our waitress “Sorry can’t remember her name” was very attentive and a pleasure. She even had the pastry chef personalize our dessert plates which made the entire dining experience A+++

Hats off to the Chef and staff at the Butterfly Café. Places like this don’t come around often so make a reservation and indulge in the best life has to offer!!!

Been here twice, pretty good food, excellent service, one of our more formal meals, but expensive. Our dinner for a party of seven was almost $400 including apps, dinners, drinks, and dessert.

It was all great. The drinks, the entrees, desserts were all delicious and the staff was excellent and attentive. It was pricey like the Tiki, which is also at the resort, but definitely worth it. This is the third time we have had Easter dinner there and plan to do so again.

Used TripAdvisor to find the best restaurant in Marathon for a milestone birthday we were celebrating. This was the perfect place. Delicious food (yes, expensive and yes, a mandatory 18% gratuity) and amazing atmosphere--we chose to eat outside. We appreciated the fancy chocolate dessert our waitress brought out. Don't forget to stroll down to the Tiki Bar to see the sunset and/or grab an apres-dinner drink.

Good food but pricey - as 18% service charge was added to bill as non-optional. But food was very tasty - especially the desserts - and the location was beautiful too. Also appreciated the availability of much cheaper children's menu, including things like hotdogs etc.
