Ever eat a fantastic breakfast in a tree house? Then come here. Food is incredible. Service too. Great atmosphere and menu. Best place to eat hung over in the Keys by far. Seafood and eggs How original
I think I should start this review by saying that my wife and I probably did not approach this place in the right way. We drove (thereby it took forerver to park), we came in during lunch after an already busy day (thereby expecting quick service and really friendly staff to ease us into the experience), and we wanted good food that would be lunch-priced (not understanding, since it was out first full day on the island, that pricing for lunch is abit different at KW).
The meal turned out fine, just more expensive than planned. The key lime pie my wife had was perfect! The seafood dish I had was wonderful, fresh! The surroundings took a bit to get used too, especially the overly-rustic-cuban rooster-infested feel. Waitress we had was slow to respond and seemed like she was some moderate form of ecstasy.
You need to have a certain mind-set to enjoy this without reservation....
I just don t get all the hype about this place. We went there for a late lunch, service and ambiance were okay, nothing to rave about. The lobster melt was mostly bread, little lobster served with about 1/2 c of unseasoned slaw, $19. The chicken salad was ok, but again nothing exciting that any run of the mill restaurant serves. Waste of time and money.
We ran into an acquaintance who told us to eat at Blue Heaven. It was to die for.. Breakfast was wonderful, 3 in our group had what we would call a normal breakfast and the price was comparable to what we spent at Denny's- not expensive and a much more upscale meal. Bread was loved by all. I had a more costly meal that was so worth it- Eggs Benedict with lobster and asparagus, it was perfect. Our group loved the food so much we went back at night. Snapper, Grouper and Jerk Chicken .. all meals were perfect and a great value for the quality. The food was excellent. (We are not animal lovers so the atmosphere was interesting but quirky enough that we didn't mind the chickens, cats and dogs.) We had a beautiful night for a late dinner outside.
