About the restaurant
Key West seafood restaurant in the heart of old town on Petronia. The menu is kept small so that everything is nice and fresh for you. Yellowtail snapper, fish of the day, Key West pink shrimp, and seafood medley highlight the menu.
Deviled Eggs topped with Scallops, Shrimp Mango Toast and Crispy Pork Belly Croustinis tantalize the pallet. Beef stroganoff made with certified black angus beef is a favorite.

Relaxing, unpretentious, and romantic.
Seating is very limited.
24 Hour Cancellation window.
For the consideration of our guests, we do not accept parties over the size of six (6).
We offer a 6 pm and an 8 pm seating.

About the restaurant
A premier choice for fine dining in Old Town Key West.

Like Charleston and other great ports of the South, Key West offers endless inspiration for chefs. Once a stop on trade routes to the Caribbean, the island developed a signature cuisine that’s practically an open book for flavors. Pair this with the bounty from two bodies of water and the signatures of great chefs who have dedicated time here and a compelling cuisine emerges.

From its inception, Café Marquesa has led the way in expressing a unique, coastal cuisine. Our kitchen combines the finest seafood, meats, and produce with classic preparations and creativity. We offer fine dining with an authentic, homespun essence, like freshly baked bread and desserts made daily in-house. A local favorite for special occasions, and a place to settle into and savor. Every dinner layers memory upon memory. Join us and find yours.

Not only does our food come from that beautiful ocean, but our dining room overlooks it.

There are a few times when expectations live up to the real thing, but this was one of those times. Even though what I was craving wasn’t on the menu, the chef created something special just for me. And my wife also got the VIP treatment with a side of custom marinara sauce that was so good we drank it like soup. This will be forever our go-to recommendation for any friends or family visiting Key West.

About the restaurant
Café Solé has captured the hearts and palates of locals and visitors lucky enough to discover this culinary gem off the beaten path. By combining his French mastery of sauces with fresh locally caught seafood, John has created a menu unlike any on the island, where every dish is bursting with indescribable flavors. Mutton snapper in pesto and champagne, yellowtail in a beurre blanc of lobster or a rare hog snapper with red pepper zabaglione top a list of nightly specials. As for the classics, the Duck a L'Orange, Rack of Lamb with herb de Province and Lobster Bouillaise are as authentic as you will find this side of Paris. Chef Correa combines the best of both of his worlds, European and Caribbean to win the People's Choice and Best Entree awards at a recent Master Chefs Classic

I can not even begin to explain how amazing this night was. When I booked this reservation it was on open table. I went to the keys for my birthday and found this special little spot with amazing reviews. After eating at this place I realized why. Let’s start with the amazing service we had thanks to Adam. He was the sweetest person. We ordered the beef carpaccio to start. Following with the baby clams and the special of the night that was a ribeye. I can’t even begin to describe the sauce they paired the steak with. It was a sweet mushroom sauce that I wish I could bring a gallon jug home, it was that good. Finally the best way to end the night, the famous key lime pie. Not only did Adam bring out the pie but it was with a birthday candle. Such an amazing yet sweet birthday experience. I will be telling all our friends as well as anyone around us in the keys that they need to eat at this place. Thank you for such a great birthday dinner. We can’t wait to visit again!
