About 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.

Bagatelle is always our favorite choice in Key West and has the best key lime pie on earth. Service was good.

Best food in Key West! We had the mussels appetizer and the lobster Mac and cheese and for entrees we had the snapper, the swordfish and the filet. Everything was amazing! Great happy hour too.

Food was good, had made reservations and were given an awful table, located on Duval St...very touristy, noisy and loud. Greeting personnel not friendly and the service mediocre...

We had promised friends who had not been to KW in a number of years a Sunday Breakfast of bananas foster french toast to die for. The place we had in mind closed permanently so I went on line to see who else did that dish and Bagatelle came up. Four of us ordered it and each person made representations about their love of it more extravagant than the next. if the chef would just add some pecan or walnut pieces I'd consider the plate Nirvahna! Service was prompt, friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Sitting on the front porch made for interesting view as Duval Street came alive for the day. We do KW frequently and look forward to going back for dinner.

Love the atmosphere. Service somewhat slow, though servers were not unfriendly. Steak had no flavor. Margarita was too sour and salty for my taste. Banana bread pudding for dessert very good. Coffee came out warm, not hot. Next time will go for happy hour at the bar.

Fantastic brunch! Key West is definitely up and going- no one should worry about heading down there. Go as soon as possible. Locals are very appreciative. We had a great time.

We were looking for a place with great food and atmosphere. Sat on the upper balcony and enjoyed people watching yet felt like an intimate dinner. Our server was great! Overall I would recommend for a slightly nicer location in Key West.

$15 crab cake appetizer was mostly cake and very little crab. $12 shot of gin with ice was mostly ice. Crab cake was barely warm. Both main courses were also cold and had to be returned. Pork was dry and bland. Both plates looked like they had been prepared for some time and microwaved. Will not go back.

Excellent service and attention by Kim and other restaurant staff.
Always crave the whole fish entree, as well several appetizer choices and salads.
Beer, wine and cocktails always intriguing - Kim was generous to help us make multiple selections during our visit !!
Always a winner and we will be back soon - fortunate for locals and island visitors !!

I was happy with the quality of the food and drinks, just not with the price for the amount of food received. Especially the appetizers. Way over priced in my opinion. I would maybe try it for a second time just to see if I could have been wrong.

This is one of the few places in Key West where you can have fine dining type food instead of fried conch fritters and bar food. I come every time I am in Key West and this time shared it with my husband who loved it! Their appetizers are amazing-we had mussels in a yummy cream sauce and Burrata Tomato salad. Wonderful! I always get the whole fried snapper with sweet Thai chili sauce. It was perfect. Hubby got rare Ahi Tuna cooked to perfection. It was very hot out and I did not know they have some air conditioned seating upstairs...perfect for late July but in good weather I love the porch dining.

Great local key west style building with an optional AC dining upstairs, right in the heart of Duvall. We initially picked this place because it was in walking distance to our hotel, and the menu didn't disappoint. I had the grilled lobster, which was almost too pretty to eat- it was fantastic. Service was what you would expect in a place of this caliber, very attentive. Great happy hour tapas and drinks from 4-6. Would definitely recommend and visit next time we are in key west

Bagatelle was by far our favorite restaurant in Key West. From the location on Duval Street to the ambiance created from both the interior and its history, to the food; this is a must stop for any foodie in Key West. While there for 5 days we ate at a different restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner. but by far this was our favorite. The food is the star of Bagatelle. The creativity, the freshness, and of course the dynamic tastes of every dish we had. It was the only restaurant that we went to more then once in our 5 days.

On a scale of 1 to 5 we give it a 10!
