Fabulous! You can't pass this place up if you visit KW. Wether it's lunch or dinner you will be glad you went. But make a reservation well in advance they are loved that much
The small plates were all very tasty though we thought it was a little bit pricey. Service was great. We requested a table outside and at first we were told by a woman that it could not happen, then a man stepped in and said - Sure! Don't know why one said yes and the other said no, but we were thrilled to located outside. The only issue we had was there was a bench right next to our table where people waiting to get called were sitting. It was a little awkward that they were so close to us. The dishes were paced nicely and we never had too many plates on the table at once.
Each time we dine here we are reminded of how good the food is. Don't miss the beef carpaccio and beef tenderloin. Service is timely and friendly (A shout out to our server Brooke who was fantastic!) and the atmosphere is fun. Don't miss this when planning your Key West meals!
A rude hostess seated us a very small table in a dark and cramped corner....while many tables were empty and remained empty thought our stay. Key West offers very good and some great restaurants. No one needs to waste time or money at Santiagos
We had a fabulous meal - four of us each ordering a variety of items, and every single item was wonderful! Our waiter was great and the serving time was good. The atmosphere was fun for our 19 and 22 year olds, and not too loud for us. We would definitely put this restaurant on our must-go-to list for Key West.
An interesting menu with beautifully prepared food served by an energetic and knowledgable server made our introduction to the Key West restaurant scene an excellent start. Highly recommended restaurant!
The food was great. Loved the short ribs and brussel sprouts. It is close quarters so get to know the people sitting at the table next to you. Also it was a little warm inside because of the amount of people. Service was great and there wasn't a long wait at all for the food to arrive.
There is something for everyone on the menu with a wide variety of small portions that allows you to build your meal exactly to meet your taste and the amount you want to eat. We eat at Santiago's every visit to Key West (multiple times annually). It is located in Bahama Village which is a couple of blocks off Duval Street and about eight blocks from Mallory Square. Our waiter was excellent and takes the time to understand your taste and makes excellent recommendations - both food and wine. We highly recommend Santiago's .... reservations are a must ... happy hour ends at 6:00 pm.
Because Santiago's Bodega is a tapas restaurant, my husband and I enjoyed a wide variety of small plates, all of which were delicious. To say that we had a favorite would not be accurate because each and every dish we ate was amazing! If I had to choose, though, I think the beef carpaccio and the shrimp & chorizo dishes were our favorites. Not only is the food wonderful, but the service is very efficient & friendly. We enjoyed our dinner so much, in fact, we went back two days later for lunch!
Santiago's is a must on our annual visit to Key West. Everything on the menu is fantastic (we have tried just about everything!). Can't go wrong with this place.
