Now that tourist season is finally over us locals can start enjoying our excellent restaurants again. My wife and I visited for a quick lunch and ordered identical omelettes. They were both cooked perfectly and we enjoyed them along with the ocean view and cool breeze. It's time to start supporting our local restaurants during the off season.

I ate dinner here with adult family members and the food was exceptional. Hog snapper was on the menu and it was wonderful. Upon arrival, there is not visual appeal - it's about the food!

What a hidden gem. Amazing food, atmosphere and service. We've been coming to the Keys for 10 years and JUST discovered this place.

I want to let visitors know the Hideaway Cafe' is located on the second floor of the Rainbow hotel. The ocean, beach and pool views are for the Hideaway Cafe' customers but they are also in use by hotel guests.

This restaurant surpassed our expectations! We were treated to a daily catch of Hog Fish and the 6 of us agreed it was some of the best fish we had ever eaten. Service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was vintage elegance.

A hidden small restaurant the serves fabulous food. We stopped by in the day time to check it out because its hidden behind The Rainbow resort. We had melt in your mouth steaks, good wine selection and yummy desserts. Well worth the gourmet price.

Not easy to find. Glad we took a cab who knew right where to go. You will think you are in the wrong place, but you're not. This was a great break from the resort restaurants. The soup is so good!!! Nice wine list and wonderful service. I had duck for the first time and it was fantastic. My husband... More

The atmosphere, the food and mostly the servers are fantastic! Charming "old Keys" feel on a beach located above Rainbow Resort. It's a must do!

We had breakfast here three days in a row. Two of the breakfasts were very good...blueberry pancakes and my second ham and cheddar cheese omelette. Our waiter was a highlight of our meals. He remembered what we drank and was very efficient. I loved seeing the folded napkins during the evening and the fresh flowers on the tables.
