We visited Bien after noticing this was ranked as the #1 restaurant in Key West, and we can certainly understand why. The excellent sandwiches are freshly made and packed with amazing taste, and the outside seating is perfect for both enjoying the food and watching the interesting characters who visit this "must-eat" restaurant in KW.

This was by far our best meal on vacation. I got the snapper in red sauce and my husband got steak & rice/ fire roasted corn and some brews. DELICIOUS! Big portions. Seating is limited but so worth it!

We were amazed at the large variety of items on Bien's menu. Homemade marinades and sauces make for creative variations on Latin and Mediterranean dishes. We shared the Press Sandwich which was a Latin version of the Cuban sandwich. Roasted pork with hot peppers, cartelized onions, melted cheese on a delicious, toasted roll, & a house salad with spiced prawns.... More

We stopped in on a whim and it was fantastic. Fast service, great food and just the right portion of roasted pork and rice, the cabbage was a nice touch!

Our family of five with three kids under 21 years stopped by Bien for lunch. Very nice, casual place. Walk up to order and seating is outside. Wonderful selection of options. We had selection of sandwiches (ham&cheese, pork) and the Caribbean bowl. All were great, and you can adjust the heat content on most dishes. The grilled/carmelized onions - available... More

The food was delicious. The dining area is outdoors and mostly filled with benches, but that gives it a really "vacationy" feel. Doesn't cost a whole lot either.

I was craving good rice and beans so a local resident recommended this place. There wasn't much of a line at the time just 4 person group ahead of me and I figured rice and beans wouldn't take the 15-20 minute wait the sign inside said. The wait was 36 minutes!!! However, it was fabulous! Very delicious! 5 stars plus... More
