My wife and I ordered the tomato soup and Caribbean Wedge salad to start things off. The presentation and tastes were great. In fact, we were busy asking the other for another bite of theirs! We had the scallops for our entree. 4 jumbo scallops came in the plate with gnocchi, spinach, cherry tomatoes and porcini mushrooms. Fabulous! Portions were... More

My family enjoyed the drinks and the excellent service as great food. The pomegranate martinis were a hit with the ladies. We returned a second night for the drinks and meals.

We were staying at Hawk's Cay and ate at Alma - what a treat. The outside seating was delightful. The wedge salad was beautiful - a half head of iceberg with queso fresco instead of blue, black beans, and a cilantro dressing. Cobia was phenomenal - perfectly cooked, accompanied by rice and beans - and the Florida lobster tail was... More

Description
Culinary Fusion With A Duck Key Flair Just because this is The Keys doesn't mean you can't, on occasion, dress up for a lovely night out. This is why we created Alma, our own fine dining experience at Hawks Cay Resort. We call it elegantly informal. By that, we mean you don't need a tie but you shouldn't walk right off the fishing boat either. Our expert (and rather eclectic) chefs combine the rich heritage of Latin cuisine with the culinary secrets and spices of the islands for an inspired fusion of flavors. Alma is all about having a great night out. That can mean just the two of you. Or it can mean sharing the fun with some close friends. Whether it's a romantic table or chatting it up on our outdoor patio, we'll do our best to make it great. Alma is an escape for those seeking a night of romantic possibilities, slightly decadent fun and, of course, great food. Our genius chefs create bold Latin dishes inspired and infused with the flavors of the Caribbean to bring you a melting pot of deliciousness you won't find anywhere else in the Keys. Sip a selection straight-up from the world's greatest Rum Bar or try one of our Alma specialty drinks while deciding if you want the Seafood Paella, or the Grilled Churrasco, or the Baked Lobster or...wow that's a tough decision. After dinner, sample the international selection of fine rums at our bar, light up a hand-rolled cigar out on the veranda or just kick back by the fire and enjoy an elegant night out Hawks Cay style. Alma is located at Hawks Cay Resort, midway down the Florida Keys on the beautiful island of Duck Key. To get to Alma, take US-1 to mile marker 61 and follow the signs to Hawks Cay's lobby. Our valets will gladly park your vehicle and direct you to the restaurant.
