What a great place and by far the best food we had on the island. Incredible seafood (bang bang fish wow, and fish tacos yum) also don’t miss the jerk chicken wings with goat cheese… wow+++, presentation was 5 star worthy, live music and even...a mentalist who did a mesmerizing table side act. Do not miss this place.More

The pork sliders were amazing! The atmosphere was very unique and fun. They used fans strategically so one can sit outside and enjoy the evening without being warm. There was a/c inside as well if that is your preference. The staff was very attentive and...courteous, and Mercedes made the evening for us! Prices were really good too.More

Great entertainment by the mentalist! Delicious food. Rasta pasta and fish tacos were favorites.. Casual setting with picnic tables. Good fans for cooling on a warm day. Nice background music. Fun dinner spot while in Key West for one night. Thank you!

Great food. The entertainment was a lot of fun and the place was warm and friendly: my wife said she had the best fish tacos she ever had. The pasta pesto was great.

I was told by the local I needed to try Kaya eats! Very casual, picnic tables set up in an alley setting . Were given a pitcher of infused water immediately upon sitting down. Very diverse menu with an island flavor. Great vegan selections. I...ordered the mixed green salad, with sliced strawberries and goat cheese and papaya seed dressing. Absolutely fantastic! My meal was marinated portabela mushroom over coconut rice and black beans.The jerk flavor was unbelievable delicious. I have eaten black beans from all over and these were the best I ever had. I had to get a Togo for my left overs . Could not wait to finish this meal later.More

We picked this place based on online reviews, and it didn't disappoint. The shrimp skewers were DELICIOUS and definitely had a different taste than we have ever experienced. Mai tais also are were fantastic. We ate at the back section by the bar - low...key with picnic tables and wooden chairs; nothing fancy but this fits our style perfectly. Can't say enough about the service here. First rate. Highly recommended if you're looking for great food and a low stress atmosphere.More

Although there was no air conditioning, nor any form of temperature reduction devices, the experience was excellent. The food was amazing! I had a Mahi-mahi cajun style and my wife shrimps.
