Had a great private dinner on the beach with friends for my husband's birthday! Food, service and ambience were all terrific!

Seafood is great, quite natural flavors with hints of the best combinations of herbs and spices. The beauty of the setting, view and surrounding is astonishing. Be prepared for non invited intruders ... key deers swim across to LPI and will try to get a bite or two from your table. Don't forget a good camera, it is worth to... More

The chef makes changes to the menu every evening so that it does not get boring. The chef selections were great. A la carte options were available but they were on the pricey side. This restaurant is very romantic and is not for someone in a hurry.

Varied, expertly prepared menu. We tried the steak, lobster, prawns, salmon, veal chop, key west shrimp appetizer, stone crab, beet salad, and more. All were simply delicious!

Supposedly fresh seafood was in fact brought in from Cysco frozen. All the hype is total a figment of their imagination. Don't be a fool and fall for it!

We arrived 30 minutes before our scheduled time. We were greeted by a very hospitable hostess. The Boat to take us to Little Palm Island runs on the hour. We were directed to a very upscale beautiful gift shop until the boat was ready to be boarded. The boat is a 1998 replica of a 1933 wooden Chris-Craft. Captain and... More

12 of us visited Key West and had "fine dining dinner" three nights in a row. We had previously had lunch here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it was very pricey. This was our third evening spending lots of $$$$. The experience is absolutely wonderful because you drive about 30 north of Key West, board their private... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner a few nights ago and it really was an incredible experience. The setting is beautiful. You get taken over on a really cute boat to the island, and taken to your table right on the beach. There are literally Key Deer coming to your table to steal bread (so cute!!) and the... More

We had around 10 meals here and at each and every one of them I would say to my husband, "This is the best (insert what I was eating) I've ever had. Absolutely incredible.

The setting can't be beat- positioned perfectly to capture the sunset from either dining directly on the beach or from the covered porch. The staff was amazing, and the food was really well thought out and prepared. Ate there two evenings in a row, and the menu was 70% different, and equally as creative.
