“A Superior Restaurant”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

My wife and I found the setting, the service, the menu, the food and the service to be far superior to the five other top rated restaurants in Tavernier. Because my wife was undecided about her wine choice, the waitress unhesitatingly served her a saple of each. Later, she expertly deboned her snapper. Every aspect of our experience was 5 stars.

“Dockside dining in Key Largo”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Service was friendly and food very delicious- a bit pricey. Walk in at bar; definite local hang out (means drinks are good)-- inside dining room white tablecloth older dining room; dockside about 5 tables -- quaint and relaxing. I think this place is consistent with food quality based on the recommendation of hotel staff and other travelers.

“Very, very bad”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The food preparation and presentation was extremely poor. The potatoes were undercooked and flavorless, the vegetables were served raw. Appetizers overpriced and tastless, and entrees that were barely average in preparation. Dinner for 2 was $100, not worth it.

“Great Find!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We found this great place just by chance. It is located just past a bridge, and at times can be missed if you are not looking for it, but we were glad we saw it on our second day in Key Largo.
It was a very nice change of pace from the typical food we found in the Florida keys. My wife had the Scallops de Provence and enjoyed a very nice Filet Mignon cooked to perfection. Our server Mario took great care of us and recommended our meals very well. Has a great view of the a marina.
