The food was amazing, had very many exquisite tastes in my mouth. The setting of the place tries its best to make you feel like you are Caribbean. The add-on of the mist cools you down and just wants you to stay in this place forever.

This restaurant stands on a corner with a couple of wooden tables and benches outside. You order your food inside the shop and it is delivered to you in a styrofoam carry-out tray. Some people may not care to eat on the corner with cars going by, however, my husband and I loved the dishes we ordered. I had the... More

This is a terrific carribean restaurant. The food is delicious. There is no indoor seating and it is busy due to the high quality of food.

Had roasted corn, The Press, and sautéed prawn sandwich (spicy, 2). Everything was excellent. Sandwiches are large - 2 people can share. Pork was super tender, and seasoned nicely. Shrimp was tender, with lots of garlic. All ingredients very fresh. Bread good. Spicy rating of 2 out of 5 was good. Have to imagine 5 is like fire. Order inside,... More

By far my favorite dining experience on the island! The place is cool and reminds me of Austin. Laid back and easy. Order at the counter, grab your cerveza, they'll deliver to your picnic seat outside (not many, be patient). The roasted street corn will set you back $5.50 damn!! Crazy price but I will be back tomorrow. Yep, don't... More

We decided to walk to Bien to as it was out of the way of where we were. Happy we did. The prices are a bit high. But the flavors were great. Seating is only outside, but the food was quick and the sandwich was great with the flavor, the bread was good. We're happy we stopped by for lunch!

Now we know what everybody was talking about. Ate a Bien when we first arrived in Key West and were thoroughly pleased. Fun, unique atmosphere and delicious, well prepared food. Casual, outside seating. For a casual, scrumptious, laid back experience, Bien is the bomb.

I'm not sure I would call this a restaurant. Think picnic - outdoors, perched at a small counter top table. You order inside and sit outside. The server brings you the meal served in cardboard. If the food was not truly scrumptious, this place would close in a minute. SOOOO....the food is fantastic!! Delicious spices, fresh, mouthwatering Latin Caribbean food!... More
