"Bel Mare means 'beautiful ocean' in Italian. We specialize in coastal Italian food served with an emphasis on traditional fine dining. Not only does our food come from that beautiful ocean, but our dining room overlooks it. The gorgeous yachts docked in the foreground of the A&B Marina make for stunning views and sunsets over that beautiful ocean!"

    Nice ambiance and service, that of a first rate restaurant. Mussels were “strong”, close to fishy, but done in a very nice sauce. I chose the fish piccata. The flavors in the piccata were wonderful. Unfortunately the black grouper on top was tough and did not taste fresh. My wife said the lobster in her dish was not fresh. We were told this was one of the best restaurants in Key West. But we would not go back.

    It’s very good service. The food is good but not great. I would expect more fresh fish options, salads. Seems a little like “fancy dinner for tourists” kind of place.

    Great food! The Ceviche and Osso Bucco were exceptional. Jarred provided excellent service. We sat at the private balcony (table #59) with the only drawback being the occasional cigar smoke from the cart vendor below us. Inside looked nice too.
