A word from Bagatelle
A visit to our house is a unique way to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures as well as our treasures from the sea. The word Bagatelle comes from the French and means "a trifle or a little nothing", often referring to a light, fun, yet not too serious spring time romance. The French brought their history of fine cuisine and their love of wine to the Caribbean Islands. It is in this tradition that we have combined our French heritage, southern hospitality and the indigenous tastes of the Florida Keys into the meals we prepare today. Our chefs blend the best of our locally caught fresh seafood, fresh produce and delicious tropical fruits for our tropical seafood dishes.

    The food was great! All of the customers in the restaurant were commenting on how good the food was. When ever I go to Key West, I am going to Bagatelle for dinner.

    I really enjoyed our meal at Bagatelle. This was our first trip to Key West and our first restaurant visit. Our waiter was gracious and attentive. Portion size was modest. The quality of the food was good+. If we go back to Key West, I would look forward to dining at Bagatelle again!

  • Bagatelle is located on Duval
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/18/2009
    Bagatelle is located on Duval so it's right in the middle of the action. We sat outside right out front so the people watching was superb. The food was good but there's so much competition that it wasn't the best in the area. They had some great drinks so the bar staff is talented and creative. Bottom line is that it's a great place to go to be in the middle of things but don't expect a leader in fine dining.

    Great old town ambience, great food, the large wrap around porches are just a wonderful place to settle in for good food and wine with friends or a special dinner. All of the food is excellent, but we especially like the seafood. Our out of town visitors always rave about the tempura lobster tail!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/9/2009
    The mussells were extremely tiny and looked anorexic. The sauce for the fried fish, I believe, is banana ketchup from the Philippines.The lemonade is from Minute Maid? The rice was oooked just right. Nevertheless, the friendliness and hospitality of the staff was notable. Their attention to your welfare was commendable.

    We ate dinner here on a Saturday night in April on a recent trip to Key West. Ask for a table on the balcony upstairs. You'll be above and away from the fray yet close enough to see the spectacles and hear the sounds of the revelry in the street below. We brought our children who were pleased with the kids menu, although this really is more suited for adults. We definitely recommend it!

    We sat upstairs on the outside deck overlooking Duval Street. It was fun watching all the people at night. Great wine list along with menu. Has something for everyone on the menu! The price was just like other Restaurants in the area. We will be back to this place on our newt trip to KW.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/14/2009
    Just awful all around. Waited 40 minutes for drinks and staff was completely unapologetic or even present. Appetizers were good, good margaritas but the four main courses we ordered were pretty bad. Service was absolutely dismal. Would not recommend. The host and the bus boy were the only friendly faces I saw in the place.
