Key West Restaurants

Key West is well known for it's great bars and wonderful restaurants. Seafood tops the list, of course, but you'll find Italian, Cuban, steak and a lot of creativity on these menus. Here are a few of the best places to dine on our island.

Alonzo's Oyster Bar – Downstairs at the A&B, renowned for their fresh oysters (what a surprise!). Excellent seafood. Sit outside along the waterfront and docks and enjoy the promenade. Bonus: convenient, free parking!
700 Front Street

Blue Heaven Restaurant
Blue Heaven – No place is more uniquely Key West and the creative menu lives up to its celestial name. This special spot is tucked into an old Bahama Village house and backyard – careful of the chicks underfoot. Sunday Brunch is very popular with the locals. Not to be missed. Drive walk or taxi; parking is a challenge.
729 Thomas Street
Camille's - The innovative selections change daily, are well prepared and served in stylish surroundings. Breakfast is very popular with locals. Great anytime.
1202 Simonton Street

El Siboney – Cuban tradition has long been intertwined with Key West history. Excellent Cuban food at reasonable prices.
900 Catherine Street

El Meson De Pepe's – Cuban and Spanish cuisine served in the atmosphere of Old Havana. Just off Mallory Square. Live Latin music and dancing.
410 Wall Street

Latitudes Café - Casual, yet upscale, open air dining on Sunset Key off Key West. Worth every penny for its romantic, beach swept ambiance, fine cuisine, and excellent, friendly service. Reservations required. Ferry to the restaurant from the docks at the Westin.

La Trattoria Restaurant – Popular with locals, who call it "the Trat." Fine, Italian cuisine. Virgilio's, the bar tucked into the back patio has live music on the weekends and attracts an upscale crowd.
524 Duval Street

Louie's Backyard – Very popular, gourmet restaurant in beautifully historic house overlooking the water. You must book ahead, and request outside seating. Can't get a reservation? Go anyway and have drinks or dessert on the Afterdeck; a perfect way to enjoy this romantic spot if the restaurant is booked.
700 Waddell Ave

Mangoes – Lovely patio dining, fine cuisine on Duval. Good food, great for watching the Duval Crawl.
700 Duval St

Pepe's Café - Established in 1909, Pepe's is Key West's oldest restaurant. Great breakfast - very popular with locals – casual lunch and steakhouse for dinner. Delightful outdoor patio seating with true old island flavor.
806 Caroline St

Sarabeth's Restaurant
Sarabeth's Key West Restaurant

Sarabeth's - One of my favorite Key West restaurants is Sarabeth's on the corner of Southard and Simonton Street right downtown. They offer delicious food, impeccable service and a wonderful tropical ambiance. The owner David Case is the ultimate host. Sarabeth's became popular in New York City and the Key West location is the only one outside of New York.
530 Simonton Street @ Southard

Seven Fish – This fine seafood restaurant with its innovative menu is tucked away in a residential neighborhood. Well worth tracking down.
632 Olivia Street (Elizabeth is the cross street.)

Turtle Kraals – This casual, open air eatery was once part of a turtle cannery; "kraal" is Dutch for pen. The Turtle Kraals Museum next door is worth a peek ($5) and if the restaurant's tower is open, climb up for a great view over the historic harbor. Serves BBQ. Go for the atmosphere.
231 Margaret Street

Key West Bars

Sloppy Joe's Bar
Sloppy Joe's and Captain Tony's Saloon - No trip to Key West is complete without visiting some of our famous watering holes. First stop for most folks is Sloppy Joe's, famed for being a Hemingway haunt. What most people don't tell you is that Captain Tony's Saloon is the original Sloppy's and the Old Man's barstool is still there. Sloppy Joe's has live entertainment nightly and a casual restaurant. Both are great Key West bars.
201 Duval Street
428 Greene Street

The Green Parrot - Mostly locals flock to this colorful open-air dive with history (the bar opened in 1890), great live music on the weekends and unstoppable Key West atmosphere. Free popcorn, very cold beer, a pool table and no sniveling allowed.
601 Whitehead Street
Cash Only

Schooner Wharf Bar - Don't miss the salty Schooner Wharf. Popular with locals and tourists, this open air on the harbor has the eclectic, nautical flavor you look for in Key West. Live music every night.
202 William Street

801 Bourbon - One of the most popular gay bars in Key West, this Duval institution welcomes everyone. Casual, friendly bar downstairs, and a great drag revue upstairs. Nightly shows at 9 and 11pm.
801 Duval Street
