Each entree we tried from catch of the day to skirt steak was fresh and delicious. Slightly pricier than a few other comparable restaurants we tried but the food was good and the ambience was relaxing. The reason it didn't get 5 stars was the service...although our waitress was friendly enough she was pretty forgetful ...from forgetting our soup altogether... More

The brussels sprouts were great, atmosphere is wonderful. But everything else was really, really overcooked. The "lightly breaded" mahi mahi fingers were incredibly deep fried and greasy. I had the lobster stuffed with crab, it also was very overlooked and dry. They were very busy maybe it's better on a slower night?

Beautiful restaurant, tables are in the sand right on the water. Food was very good and service was warm and friendly. Live music was a nice touch.

This was our first dinner out on Islamorada & we stumbled upon it by accident. The view was fantastic & the sunset beautiful. The food was delicious! One had Waldorf Gnocchi with gorganzola sauce ---- FANTASTIC! The other had fried Mahi, also very good. The music (although not live) was so islandy & fun! Pierre's Punch, served in a quart... More

We had dinner on a Tuesday night, with the most beautiful sunset ever. Together with a very laid-back atmosphere, there is lounge music to bring you in an utter state of relaxation. We had to wait for a table on the beach, which is the place you want to sit because of the fabulous views. Hector our waiter served us... More

We had seating on beach near the water. Great vibe with relaxing music and lots of space in between the tables. Great for couples, families or friends. The Brussels sprouts were tasty as was the catch of the day (you have to eat fish daily in Islamorada!) Can't recommend it enough!

We stopped here on the way to Hawks Cay, we got a spot on the beach and had cocktails and apps. We had fun time and the food and drinks were delicious. We would highly recommend stopping on the way down the keys.

Wow.. this place is breathtaking. Prices are similar to New York City so prepare for that. We're from NYC so it felt normal. Food and drinks were on point. And being on a white sandy beach with those views sealed the deal.

Walked out after being sat for 20 minutes no service. No apology given. They really didn't care. There were a ton of workers so there was no excuse for the crappy service .

We're so very sorry that this happened. We remember you, the host informed me on your departure. I immediately investigated it and gave a stern 'coaching' to the server whose table was yours. We have no excuse for you, we agree this is unacceptable; I can only in going forward assure you that this will never happen again. We hope... More

This place is a favorite of ours about 4x/year but today after ordering lunch, 30 minutes later the waitress finally returned and said there was a problem with their printer so our order didn't get put in. she said it would be out soon, gave us more chips and salsa, and never came back. We left an hour later. Really... More
