Not a fancy place at all but possibly the best sandwich I've ever had. I had the roast and my other half had the press and had the roast corn. I wish I lived nearby so I could eat there more often.

I had a Bien salad with rice and beans, and a generous helping of the pork shoulder. Perfect blend of flavors and textures, especially liked the julienned beets in the salad, and the savory black beans. My wife had the pork shoulder sandwich and loved it. I only wish it had indoor seating, in this heat!

Before visiting any restaurant, it's important to know what you're getting into. One might look at the high ratings for Bien and be very disappointed with the seating and ordering from a counter. Bien is quite simply all about the food and it is excellent. Huge portions, tremendous flavor. The menu has something for everyone. Bench seating for a dozen... More

We had seen the great reviews this restaurant had gotten so this was one place we didn't want to miss. We knew from other reviews that the seating is limited so waited until after 1pm and were able to get seats right away. The food here is excellent! We had the Caribbean Scallops and Caribbean Roast Dinner with a side... More

Every time I drive down to the Keys I make this a must stop. The chicken is my favorite! I recommend to anyone in the Keys. Best food in the keys is all in Key West!

My wife and I dropped in to get a drink and were surprised by how many people were waiting in line. Bien is small and offers outdoor seating, mostly bench types. A real plus were the typical Key West "squirrels" walking freely around us (chickens and roosters). It is a good 10 minutes from the busy Duval street area but... More

I am still dreaming of the food at Bien. Absolutely delicious!!!! The fire roasted corn is a MUST. The rice bean trio and seafood in red sauce are not to be missed, either. If I could have ordered 20 meals and flown them home with me, I would have :)

The set-up might be a bit discouraging for anyone just passing by...however, those that brave it and order--well they will for sure come back for seconds before leaving Key West! The food is flavorful and very tasty. Highly recommend this place for a quick lunch while strolling around Key West!

I had read all the rave reviews, so I made this a must have on my vacation and it did not disappoint. Since my boyfriend and I are vegetarian we got the Onion sandwich and the Tofu sandwich and split them. Wow, that onion sandwich was delicious. I enjoyed the tofu sandwich too, but not as much as the onion... More
