Food was not the greatest. Steaks were hit and miss out of 5 of them. Food was slow to come out.

Very nice evening out on Duval. We had a table about 25 feet off the street which was good for sound and people watching. Food was delicious. Empanadas and ribeye were excellent. Live music was good and not too loud like some places. Braeden out waiter was really nice.

Excellent in every way. Omar, our server was very attentive and polite. Food was very good and cooked exactly as ordered. No issues and a wonderful experience. Pricing was a value in comparison to other Key West restaurants of similar style and offerings. Nice elegant but not pretentious vibe.

Open Table Reservation went off without a hitch... traffic was bad, but got a message that said they were expecting us, with an option to say "we are on the way". The response was "Great! See you Soon!"

We chose Patio seating (I am a smoker). Ambiance was about average for an outdoor experience in Key West; certainly not high end, but very comfortable. Acoustic singer/guitarist was out back and played at a pleasantly moderate volume... we could easily converse, although the speaker was 3 or 4 feet from our table.

FOOD: EXCEPTIONAL flavor, quality!!
SERVICE: Exceptional!!
VALUE: Very Very Reasonable prices (especially for Key West!)! Local Discounts were applied in spite of the fact that we had a Buy one - Get one Woman's card.

Overall, VERY impressed! Will definitely return!!

**They got VERY during our short dinner stay... highly recommend reservations if you don't want to wait.

Will was an excellent server and made great recommendations. The filet with cognac sauce was delicious!! The salmon with orange sauce and roasted vegetables tasted so good and would definitely order it again!n
The steak empanadas were the best I’ve ever had.
Ginger lemonade was homemade and unique.
Will go back again!! Great food excellent service and outside seating.

Food was very good, portions were good but service was slow and the waiter was not very attentive. With lots of places to spend your dining dollars in Key West, this is not going to be on my MUST go again list.

Was surprised the prices on the menu were $5 more than what they displayed on the website. Not a good way to start. In addition, the portions were small. We ordered the ribeye.

Great ambiance with the live music. Large outdoor area so you could still hold a conversation and wasn’t too loud with the music. Great food, we ordered the churrasco steak that was cooked perfectly with large portions. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and not overdone. Would recommend for a nice date night.

Our server, Will was outstanding. He made several recommendations that were spot on. He was prompt, attentive and courteous while the restaurant was super busy including a literal line out the door on a holiday weekend. We loved everything, in particular the top-notch service, fantastic food, live music and warm welcoming atmosphere. We will be back!

Excellent food and excellent attention. I am from Argentina and I must say that it was high-quality Argentinian food. The empanadas were outstanding both meat and humita.
My steak was cooked to perfection. Great selection of Malbec’s.
I highly recommend this place
