This is simply one of the nicest restaurants to have dinner, not just in Key West, but anywhere. The food is outstanding and lovingly prepared. It has a charming small bar that is open for happy hour from 4:30 - 6:30 and dinner is served from 6:00 P.M. to 10:30 P.M. seven days a week.
Address: 1075 Duval Street, Key West, Fl 33040 Phone 305 296-4300.
Reservations are suggested. Dress is casual. There is ample parking off of Simonton St. but treat yourself to a cab so you can relax!
Everyone we have ever sent here has raved about the food and the service. There is live piano music every night. If you only have one night for a special dinner, go to Square One. Tell Michael we said Hi!
This is simply one of the best places to eat anywhere and it is right on the water. Be sure to order the conch chowder(one of the best anywhere!), the grouper sandwich (always fresh and first rate), and the conch fritters (words cannot describe these!).
It's open for lunch and dinner. Go for lunch and you will stay for dinner!
It's located in the Pier House Resort at 1 Duval Street. Phone: 305 296-4600
This is one of the nicest and most intimate properties in Key West! The restaurant is in the back right on the water. The food is outstanding. We always order the conch fritters (just the sauce will get you back to Key West) and the conch chowder. The snapper and the grouper are always excellent and the service can't be beat.
It's located at the Hyatt Resort, 601 Front Street. Phone: 305 296-9900.
This is a great Spanish restaurant that will give you great food without breaking your wallet. Go with a big appetite. They have a non-smoking area and do not take credit cards. They have great take out if you want to eat in your room or boat. You won't believe the check!

The best Spanish food on the island because Chef Pepe ( formerly of El Maison de Pepe) prepares the food. In Mallory Square where all the action is, you'll really enjoy the festive atmosphere. All credit cards accepted and moderately priced.

This rustic seafood restaurant is on Stock Island just over the small bridge leaving Key West. The seafood is the freshest (you can buy it to cook from the back if Ramon is there) and the portions are generous. Be sure to order Fish 'n Chips with Grouper! They are the best! All credit cards are accepted and the beer is very cold. Moderately priced and worth the ride. If you take a cab it will still cost you less than eating the comparable food in town. Take out is available.
