I'm not sure I would call this a restaurant. Think picnic - outdoors, perched at a small counter top table. You order inside and sit outside. The server brings you the meal served in cardboard. If the food was not truly scrumptious, this place would close in a minute. SOOOO....the food is fantastic!! Delicious spices, fresh, mouthwatering Latin Caribbean food!... More

The food is amazing. It is essentially a take out place although they do have a few tables and benches outside to sit and eat.

This place was less than a block from our hotel and highly recommended to us. The food was amazing! We loved how it is very simple and quaint. You order your food from the counter and then find a seat outside. They bring it directly to you fresh and hot.

The Bien salad with chicken is hands down the best salad I have ever had in my life. It was the perfect meal for a warm Key West day. It is a quick bike ride from anywhere on the island, but be prepared for a line, and limited outdoor seating. Worth it!

Fresh and tasty. My two friends and I had lunch at Bien on our first visit to Key West. One of the ladies had been here before and we went upon her recommendation. We all had the Seafood in Red Sauce, heat level #2. My seafood shoice was scallops. I added a side of black beans and one of the... More
