This is a small local spot. Nothing fancy about the location or restaurant. All you get here is good food. My husband absolutely raved about his Red Snapper. The waiter/service is provided by the chef so you can speak directly to the chef about the meal preparation. I loved the onion soup and plantains. I definitely have on my list... More

Mo's is just a couple blocks from where we are staying in Key West. We stopped for lunch and had amazing gazpacho soup (can't wait to go back for more) and toasted ham sandwiches. Delice was wonderful, made us feel very welcome! We were happy to find another great eatery near "home" and look forward to our next visit.

Really liked our lunch here: chicken creole style for me and goat creole style for my husband. Raw spinach salad to start. And delicious key lime pie to finish. Friendly staff too. Haitian music in the background. Dinner menu looks good. One of our nicest meals in Key West. Worth stopping by.

Discovered this place by chance on New Year's Eve. Everywhere else rammed but Mo's was quiet and relaxed. Food is billed as Caribbean with meat of fish served with rice and beans. The portions were enormous so order wisely. One between two would be sufficient for Kids. I had shrimp pasta which was the right side of spicy so you... More

MO's isn't necessarily hidden but it's easy to get lost amongst all the other more well known places down here. That being said we live three blocks away and it's one of my favorite places to go! The staff is always super friendly and the chef is willing to accommodate any needs you may have. The food is like nothing... More

Walked by Mo's and then looked it up and found it had great reviews so we stopped in for dinner. The food is creole and many of the entrees can be ordered mild or spicy. The portions were large enough for at least two meals and the flavor was great. Only gave it four stars because we ordered the key... More

This under-the-radar Haitian restaurant is worth a visit -- think incredibly flavorful comfort food, Caribbean-style. The portions are huge, the staff are friendly, and the menu accommodates vegetarians (that'd be me) and meat eaters (that'd be my husband; he recommends the Creole goat). Prices range from $7 to $17. I don't know if everyone gets free pie at the end... More

We loved the ambiance of this restaurant, finding the owner(s) to be delightful and welcoming. The food was ridiculously delicious and seasoned so well. I had the Caribbean Chicken with veggies and potatoes (to die for) and my wife had the Oxtail with veggies and dirty rice. We were stuffed when we left and still had leftovers to enjoy as... More
