About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

Keyviche Seafood Eatery offers a wide range of cuisines which include Central American, Spanish, Latin, vegan, South American and classical American dishes. As the name implies, the restaurant offers predominately seafood in its diverse menu, but it also offers a separate section for cocktails that go well with each. Each drink is infused with fruits and spirits that bring out their unique taste and make the dishes they can be paired with stand out.

Keyviche's appetizers boasts seafood based delicacies such as mussels, shrimp, cream potatoes, oysters and octopus to name a few. These are available in both hot and cold varieties but diners can also order ceviches which include tender pieces of lemon marinated fish which diners can choose from the menu. Keyviche's specials include poultry and beef dishes such as the Aji de Gallina and beef stew that is served with homemade sauce. This restaurant has closed down.

Most of the ceviche dishes were pretty good, the pan seared yellowtail and shrimp was just ok and was overpriced for the portion and flavour. Service was ok to good. Place was dead on a Saturday night.

We found Keyviche through Open Table, and made reservations with our only expectation being some good seafood prepared differently than along the marina. We were almost giddy with what we found. Our reservation was set for a Saturday night, and we expected a full house, but on entering, we were one of only two couples in the restaurant.

We went from questioning our choice to sheer pleasure in less than five minutes, starting with drinks - a Papa's Cuba Libra and a Mile Zero Margarita with a hint of Chipotle. We took one look at the menu and both decided to try a little of everything there - and it was worth the time to work our way through it!

Our waitperson was wonderful and knowledgeable, and offered several good suggestions, checking back with us regularly appearing truly interested in what we were tasting. She focused on the Colombian heritage and tastes, which helped our understanding.

We started with the Octopus Carpaccio - which was tender and incredibly seasoned - and the scallops au gratin - a hot treat, and moved on to the ceviche. I had the yellowtail with yellow pepper leche de tigre and medium spice, which was absolutely delicious. My date had never had ceviche, so tried the spoon sampler - staff graciously added a fifth spoon for her (whitefish, calamari, yellowtail snapper, mussels and shrimp) and they all disappeared in short order. We tried a bowl of the seafood soup, which was a tasty example of South American spices and seafood broth with mixed seafood, which had been flambeed in their pisco.

Our entrees included the Peruvian rice with grilled shrimp and Diver scallops served with a pineapple salsa and corn. Once again, everything was close to perfection.

We were pleased to see more than a dozen others in the restaurant by then, because the tastes of Colombia and Keyviche deserve to be discovered.

Slow service took away from an otherwise enjoyable meal. There were 4 of us and one ate a meal she liked well enough to make it alone worth a return visit to Key West. Otherwise the food was good but not extraordinary. None of us tried the namesake ceviche though, so can't comment on that.

We are locals and we will not return drinks way to expensive my husband had to ask for the drink to be stronger he said it tasted like there was no alcohol and it was a 15.00 dollar!! and my steak app was nasty tasted old I had there "famous" chicken dish and the chicken was so dry I only took like 3 bites my husbands steak was served almost raw we ordered it med rare we sent it back and it Came back in like 3 min I think they microwaved it way to quick to have put it back on the grill and he still left about 1/2 of it still pretty raw by the bone. And the vegetable looked frozen didt even eat them. And the meal was not cheap we spent 150 for two people and one of the worst meals we have had! If they are going to have those kind of prices food needs to be way better!!
