This was a really cute place with very good food. Wish we could have come back again. Great service, right on the water, great view, and great food, good portions. Don't usually like to take home a doggie bag but it was too good to leave behind. Hard to find, make sure you look for the Rainbow Bend motel.

My wife and I were recommended to go to this restaurant. The food was below average. We had the so called famous hog fish. It had a very soggy breading on it along with it literally swimming and butter and oil. The place is very dingy and just not comfortable. We sat out on the deck and were eaten up by bugs. The staff was friendly, however they were extremely slow. The best thing I had there was an ice cold beer. We are very rarely negative about going to restaurants, but this was just not a fun experience. We will definitely not be going back to this place.

We were recommended to this place, but had a lot of trouble finding it. There was no clear sign from the road. We finally found it, but didn't think the meal or wait staff was anything great. It was so, so.

Hidden in the Rainbow Bend motel at mile marker 58.5, Hideaway Cafe is directly on the ocean in an old "Keysie" style hotel. The food is French in style, fairly extensive menu too. Above average wine list. With so many crummy restaurants in the Florida Keys, this is a good spot for an above average meal for a special occasion, or, just to spoil yourself a bit in a land of fairly boring eating establishments. prices are reasonable for the area.
