Seafood
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.

We decided on brunch. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our waiter so much. The food presentation was phenomenal as well. You have one of the best key lime pies on the island!!

My wife and I went to Bagatelle on our first night in Key West. We returned after trying other highly rated restaurants in town. None of the others matched Bagatelle. Highly recommended.

If you are in key west this is a must stop. We did brunch and the southern eggs Benedict was insane coming from a southern gal raised in North Carolina. We were here for our honeymoon Jan 2021 and we sat right on the porch. The pork and hollandaise sauce paired with the sweet cornbread was amazing! My husband ordered the French toast which was a hit as well! One of the top 5 restaurants and they did not disappoint!

Food is wonderfully delicious and wait staff is excellent. Tables are too close together and noise from Duvall is a deterrent.
Would love to see this in a different location.

As I realized how close this place was to the touristy part of Duval, I began to worry. But it was an amazing authentic and quaint experience! We at brunch on New Years Eve and were not disappointed. The Southern Benedict is off the charts! And the service was impeccable! We will be back!

Had lobster Mac for appetizer, shared between four. Absolutely fantastic. Then had the filet. All of the food was delicious.

I’ve been here three times, I think it’s always got good food. I’ve had the brunch before as well which was delicious.

Picture this is a beautiful night in Key West and the restaurant has great out door seating on Duval Street and the hostess show you to your table by the front door and near the bar. It’s also the only table in the area. When I asked for a different table...she is like this is it or you can wait 1-2 hours for something else (best part was she clearly did not care we made reservations). We were in and out of the restaurant in less than 45-min (the waitress kept asking us if we were done and there was still food on the plate).

Food was nothing great for the money and the experience was sub-par!

They could not honor our reservation after we waited over 45 minutes. They had 3 people running the place so service was very slow. As we were about to leave a table opened up. We waited 40 minutes for food. Portions were small and hardly any lobster in the lobster omelet.
I would not eat there again.

Really expected more in food and service. My comment to friends was "Meh" Has such a decades long reputation with us and friends and didn't meet it. We ate upstairs. Had to report that the lady's room needed attending due to towels overflowing both receptacles. Very disappointing.

Dined here with my fiancé and future MIL. Such a charming, classier little spot! Food was absolutely delicious, the drinks were original and all super tasty. We had the baked Brie appetizer, snapper dish, lobster dish and hogfish special for dinner. All were exceptional. Sit upstairs or on the downstairs porch for a cozy meal with a view! Would return next time we visit the keys.

The facility, service (Mattie) and the tasteo of food were excellent. The presentation of the food was terrible. My wife had lobster and I had sort fish. They both were delicious, but the were luke warm. Not cold buy certainly only luke warm. I told Mattie and asked to talk to the manager. The manager keep wanting to say a few degrees too cool. I kept correcting her that they were luke warm. Again, the facility, service and the taste of food were outstanding.
