This was my first time at a Haitian restaurant. The dishes reminded me of Jamaican cuisine. The oxtail curry was delicious. So was the veg casserole. The restaurant is truly a hole in a wall, so go there expecting nothing but authentic food, nothing else.

It is a small place, good food, not too much expensive.... Server was busy talking with friends at the bar so we have to wait a little bit....

We ate ate Mo's several times during our 3 month stay in Key West. At first we were drawn in because the board said they served goat and my husband wanted to try it. He enjoyed the goat (but only had it the once) ... we tried a variety of other dishes that we enjoyed but always had the gazpacho... More

Loved this place! The red beans and rice were amazing. We stopped for lunch. I had the roasted chicken and it was so good. My husband had pork.

This family owned Haitian Restaurant is off the beaten path but well worth the discovery. Our server was also the owner and she couldn't have been more responsive or pleasant. Being able to see your dinner prepared was an unexpected bonus. I ordered the fried plantain and seafood quiche. I would definitely order both again. The meal ended with orange... More

This Haitian restaurant in Key West has it all. A local down home atmosphere with courteous and timely service with fabulous food is as good as it gets. Easy parking is not bad either.

I'd never been to Mo's but wen there with friends. The food and service were quite good. It definitely is low key and casual, but the service was excellent and the food quite good. I'd recommend that it be given a try.

Stumbled upon this treasure while walking the town. I was adventurous and tried the Escargot dinner with mushrooms and spinach. It was delicious. My friend had the seafood quiche and the crust is really made it outstanding. We finished out the dinner with pumpkin pie and key lime pie. We will be back again!

First visit this year. The chef is still on his game. Our group of three had goat, grouper, and red snapper. It was all delicious and we each took some home for another day. If they have key lime pie give it a try. This is not the typical sugar heavy key lime pie you get at many places. This... More
