Description: Savor Florida Keys dining with award-winning tropical cuisine indoor or outdoor at Tranquility Bay Resort's own Butterfly Café. Butterfly Café captures the essence of island cuisine with an emphasis on quality, local ingredients and, of course, ocean fresh seafood in a beautiful airy Marathon restaurant setting. Open daily for dinner, the menu and wine list at Butterfly Café change seasonally. Children will delight in a special menu designed just for them. Dinner is served nightly from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at our restaurant in Marathon and reservations are encouraged. Dine outdoors on Butterfly Café's covered patio, or enjoy the impressive dining room inside with its soaring ceiling and casual yet sophisticated decor. Our dinner menu features tantalizing offerings like Florida Keys’ Shrimp Cocktail, Tropical Crab Cakes, Panko Encrusted Florida Grouper, Key Lime Pie, TDF 'To Die For' Sticky Toffee Pudding and more. Casual resort attire recommended at this Florida Keys restaurant.

If you are in the Marathon area, don't miss having dinner here at least once. The food is incredible and creative, with flavors that will keep you wanting more. From start to finish it is a wonderful experience. I have dined here many times and cannot recommend it enough to everyone I know.

Stayed at the resort but ended up eating here a few times. Food is amazing and service is fantastic. Priced higher than most places on island but worth it.
Quiet peaceful setting. Like bring in a house, porch seating is great at night.

Made it here on the last night of our vacation and wished we tried it on the first!!! If we had to do over again we would have eaten here the entire trip!! Ihad the scallop risotto and it was heavenly! The scallops had a perfect crust from being seared just right and the risotto was creamy and very flavorful. The serve it on a piquillo pepper cream sauce that just brings all together! Do yourself a favor and go on your first night so you don't make the same mistake as me and can't return until the next trip!!

My family and I stayed at Tranquility Bay for 5 nights and had the pleasure of dining at there on site restaurant every single night!! Yes 5 nights in a row we ate here....that's how good the food is!!! We tried almost the entire menu by the end of the week and honestly I have to say it was all delicious perfection!! My favorite if I had to pick would be the Cuban Pork Chop with the spicy plantain crema, It had just enough heat to compliment the sweet plantains.
We had the pleasure of meeting the GM of the resort, Bob Bauersachs one of the nights we were there. You could tell that he really took pride in making sure that all of the guests and patrons of the restaurant were enjoying themselves, very genuine.
Five Star Service, Menu and Ambiance!!! I will be dreaming of the food until we can return!!!
