Mangoes Restaurant and Catering - Key West, FL
Enjoy lunch, dinner and cocktails in our courtyard lounge, people watch from our Duval Street outdoor seating, or cool off in our open walled air conditioned dining room that ties our beautiful property together. Our bar serves an amazing selection of craft beers on tap, along with the classical favorites, specialty cocktails, frozen drinks and a wine list to meet our guest’s needs.
The service was excellent, our waiter Jay was awesome. The wait time for our food was long. There were no more than 5 tables and there’s no way we should have waiting 30 minutes for entrees.
Horrible experience. (Party of 12) The spilled mussels on a jacket (expensive) no apologies from the owner. They had no clue who
Had ordered what. Double billed us on a couple of entrees. Then owner comes by, who confirms that he had witnessed the whole mess, and gave us a 10% discount... what an insult, and when told about the jacket again... again, no apology. Horrible management. Will never return
The pork belly was super salty and the paella is far far far from authentic. Loved the ambiance and the singer who was super talented and way fun.
We had a wonderful visit to this great restaurant. Originally, we had been referred to another restaurant, but after looking at the menu, and a torrential downpour of rain, we chose to come to Mangoes instead as is it was closer to our hotel. We made a great choice! The food was delicious, and the key lime pie was the best I've ever eaten.
Food was less than desired. Crab cakes fried to a crisp
Chicken nachos were like can chicken!! Yuck!!
Great patio spot for people watching and enjoying a great meal and great entertainment!
Food wasn’t that great. Server was awesome, entertainment was fantastic. I wouldn’t go back for the food though. It’s too bad. The location was great and ambiance. So many places to eat in KW.. they need to step up their game.
Great location for people watching and outdoor seating.
Great spot right on the strip. Outdoor seating allows you to people watch
Lovely evening, with scrumptious food!
Very friendly and attentive wait staff and the food was delicious.
Service and location are amazing!! Not the best food on the island, but a great spot for a bite and people watching on Duval.
Please be aware that the menu online is different from the actual menu. Also two out of three of us had to choose another menu item because they were out.
Also, I tried to pay with Amex and they said it couldn’t read my card. I had just used it prior to eating. I think they didn’t want to accept Amex. Overall disappointed.
Total tourist trap. Mediocre food at high prices and small portions. Avoid
Made and confirmed (twice) a reservation for outside, yet they took advantage of the fact that my children checked us in (I was parking) and they forced them to take a table inside.
Food was terrible- nothing fresh or homemade. all was previously FROZEN. Yet they charged an arm and a leg
Waitress was terrible, only came by once and then proceeded to tip herself 20% on the bill. Best part was that she did not bring and then would not give us an itemized receipt and did NOT tell us (purposefully) that she had tipped herself. She was clearly ripping folks off for an extra 15-20% tip (again on overpriced, frozen food). Only when pressed did she admit she had already tipped herself
DO NOT GO HERE
The food was so delicious!! The music was loud though. We had to shout to carry on a conversation. Other than the noise, nice atmosphere.
We celebrated Christmas dinner as a family of 5 on the porch. Food was awesome, service superb ,setting is beautiful, and great band to keep us entertained. Would recommend for anyone looking for outdoor seating with live music!
For a town this close to the ocean their seafood was average. Expected more
The menu sounds good and the food overall tasted well, I just thought it was very over priced. I ordered the loaded pineapple which was considered a salad. The menu didn’t mention rice in it and let’s just say that for $27 it was more an appetizer portion. I do not think it was worth the price or considered a salad just because the put some lettuce next to it. Ingredients wise it was probably about $3 to make. Our waiter also messed up one of the parties dinners and wasn’t very apologetic and kind of accused us for ordering the wrong thing, though he was the one that got confused. He was kind of spacey.
Thanks to Opentable we had the prime table reserved for us right at the corner of Duval & Angela Street, so we got to take in the Key West culture while we dined. The food and service were great.
Food was bland and luke warm Server did not know about the dishes being served.
We were provided with excellent service at first by a very nice gentleman (can’t remember his name) in the beginning of the evening. Then they switched waiters on us halfway through. Shandra took over and treated us horrendously! She came over and asked if we wanted another drink, and we kindly declined. Then she just kept trying to rush us out every time she walked by, pressuring us to buy or leave. This wasn’t like over an hour or something, it was over the course of just a few minutes. I mean we just finished a round of drinks and a meal in a half hour, give us some time to enjoy the ambiance and settle! After a few minutes she came over to give us our bill and said “you guys are ready to leave right?”. Nope. We ordered a slice of pie and closed the check (we really would’ve stayed a lot longer). We come to Key West at least once a month and love Mangoes. Such a shame over this mediocre service we received. Won’t be returning.
2nd time dining here. The first experience was so amazing topped only by the company..
I had built this place up in my mind to be really spectacular.
The food and service is still very good , but It felt less intimate than what I remembered from my first visit. The back half of the seating area was not being used at all. I would have preferred to be seated there as it is much further back from the street and noisy distractions along the sidewalk.
There are so many interesting places to eat in KW, I will likely rotate this one out for a bit while trying some new experiences. But if you’ve never been, it is definitely a very respectable place for dinner with good service and atmosphere.
Food and ambience were amazing! The waiter was so nice!
We loved the Crab cakes.
the food here was great and the service was also very good, nice place to sit and people watch on Duval Street
Great food — fresh fish and sides. Great atmosphere on street corner on Duval. Oh great drinks too.
Our server could not have been any nicer! The place is clean and inviting. The menu is rather small but there is something for everyone. Two of the 5 of us had overcooked fish and it was a little rubbery and the other 3 meals were excellent.
This place is awesome - from top to bottom, it checks all the boxes. The live music was entertaining, the drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was super cool. Service was spectacular- Mariana was fantastic, attentive, and so pleasant! Most of all the food is *phenomenal*! Come prepared to eat.
Great service and food! Would definitely recommend.
The restaurant was CLOSED!
Food was only okay and service was terrible. Waited an hour for food- two tables (1 with 2 people, 1 with 5 people) seated after us received their food and left before we got our meal.
Fish was dry. Service good. Definitely a tourist trap
Food exceeded expectations; delicious fish tacos, service was quick without being rushed; great peoplewatching from our patio spot.
I needed somewhere to take guests and this was the perfect spot! Great location right in the middle of the action! All 3 of us loved our dinner! I personally had the lobster mac & cheese and it was wonderful! Outdoor dining made for a pandemic safe atmosphere. The band was so fun! Can’t wait to go again.
I came for first time to this restaurant three years ago and the food was outstanding, in particular a hummus plate that I won’t forget , so based in my experience I wanted to go back while visiting Key West, but the second time around wasn’t that good, the hummus plate does not exist anymore , vegetarians don’t have much of a choice , but service is still great and the ambiance is good, there was a band playing , it is a bit pricey though !
Maybe its covid but entree menu options seemed limited and strange for keys. Paella was good though. Entertainment was excellent and kept us there for a few more drinks
Arrived early for our reservation and was able to be seated right away. Friendly hostess and manager. Great table on the patio with a live singer. Service was excellent and quick to help us move when the rain came. My only disappointment was due to the very limited menu due to Covid 19. I have previously eaten at Mangoes and really enjoyed the food. This time not so much. Again, I understand the circumstance of COVID 19 but wish there were a few more options on the menu.
Live music was great
Great food and lots of fun preformers! We ate there 2 times on our trip and will go back when we revisit KeyWest.
