The most outstanding dinner experience in the Keys- by far! I think the Hideaway is a best kept secret, we found out from some regulars. The food and presentation was absolutely outstanding and pleasantly unexpected! White linen table cloth / napkins with beautiful and proper table settings - complete with a fresh rose in a bud vase. Our lady server... More

Best meal we had in the Keys! Went for my husband's birthday and he loved it. The food is as good as any you will find in a big city fancy restaurant. The escargot hideaway is a great twist on traditional escargot. Comes with tomatoes, spinach and mozzarella, delish. Loved that this gem is hidden on the upper level of... More

Our yoga instructor, Nancy Kekst, told us that she loves this place and since she was a local, we decided to try it. Our last night in the keys and our experience was wonderful!! I had the duck that everyone was bragging on. Superb. Spouse had hogfish, scallops and shrimp. Oh so good. The servings were huge, too! The staff... More

It was the first time a tried Shrimp Bisque and I could have eaten a gallon of it. So good! Robert, the owner was a gentleman throughout. It is a little... More

If visiting the Keys, Hideaway is an absolute must do! My wife and I bring everyone we know to this classic seaside restaurant. True fine dining in a relaxed, yet formal atmosphere. Robert and his staff provide a culinary food experience with honesty and kindness. Commitment to quality is always consistent and shows every time we are lucky enough to... More

This place is a hidden gem! We've lived here for almost two years and finally decided to give this place a try. We're glad we did! Order a bottle of wine and take in the views of the Atlantic accompanied by the quintessential Keys palm trees as you dine by candlelight. The food was spectacular and I believe the best... More

This fantastic little place is hidden behind (and up a flight of stairs from) the Rainbow Bend motel, a charming 60's era fishing motel along the overseas highway. Once you find it, enter to be transported to small, elegant restaurant with beautiful ocean views. No Jimmy Buffet here, the soundtrack is classic jazz vocals with a classic menu and wine... More

This is a second visit to this little hidden gem. We made a reservation and drove down from Islamorada. Don't let the exterior confuse you. The little restaurant is tucked away. The food is very good,nice wine list offering several by the glass. This restaurant is "old school" in its ambiance, reminiscent of "old Florida." Robert the restaurant owner is... More

Now that tourist season is finally over us locals can start enjoying our excellent restaurants again. My wife and I visited for a quick lunch and ordered identical omelettes. They were both cooked perfectly and we enjoyed them along with the ocean view and cool breeze. It's time to start supporting our local restaurants during the off season.
