Stunning setting! Outstanding food! Wonderful service! In town from Colorado for a week on vacation and went out for a nice dinner. Amazing ambience with dining overlooking the water. Key deer on the property were so cute to watch during dinner. One of the best dinners I've ever had - an experience I won't forget!

Table on the beach. Totally unhurried. You have your table all evening. Watch the sunset. Wonderful cocktails. Food is divine. Listen to live jazz (never too loud) as you sit around the fire pit with your after dinner coffee/liqueur. Boat ride back to the shore. Sublime.

It was amazing, the view and the overall experience was wonderful. A deer was sleeping in the bushes next to the patio while we ate. It's a great destination to "get lost."

The trip over on the boat was very delightful! When coming island everyone is so friendly and the layout is so nice! We got to watch the sun set while eating dinner and enjoying wine. Little deer came by and we got to watch the fish jumping out of the ocean. Dinner was amazing! I think it was lacking a little on the main course but ever side dish we had was on point! This was extremely expensive date night but you only live once and I would recommend it. You have to remember you're also paying for the experience that you can't really get anywhere else.

The food, service and ambiance is all you would expect from such an upscale, fairly hidden gem. We can't wait to return again soon.

Very upscale exclusive resort with no televisions, phone use prohibited and access to the island by private boat.
Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. Our server, Anna, and her assistant were helpful and on point, as was the dining room captain and the rest of the staff.
Cold avocado soup and Giant shrimp cocktail were followed by prime NY strip steak and seared scallops. Homemade key lime pie was enjoyed with rich coffee by the fire pit at the beach while waiting for the return boat ride home!! Awesome
