We followed a recommendation on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The tuna starter was the best tuna I have ever tasted, anywhere in the world. What a fantastic surprise. Really friendly, excellent service in a relaxed diner style atmosphere.

Like nearly every restaurant in Key Largo, the fish options are spectacular. Problem is wait service is disappointing and were unprepared for our group of five despite not being busy. In a town with so many great options, I wont be returning.More
