The seating outside is minimal. At the corner of Eaton and Grinnell. Menu is termed Latin Caribbean. The corn, Mexican style, is great. I ask for it without mayo. I got a fish bowl, number 2 spice level, which was not mild. Good bike parking.

AMAZING food! We are half way through a month long roadtrip and this is the best food we have had so far. Absolutely delicious and has a very friendly staff. Will definitely return next time we visit Key West.

Great food in its own style. Don't miss out. They even let you choose spice level from one to five. I had both the pork and the fish sandwich. Both were fabulous.

Worth the walk up to Eaton St. Not much seating, but empty when we were there. The staff are friendly and their breakfast /brunch/ lunch menus are generous in size and quirky. Good honest, fill you up kinda food. And the chickens running about is quite a sweet touch too :)

We went here for dinner one night. They were patient with us and we asked a lot of questions. The food was good and we enjoyed eating outside and watching the traffic go by. I loved the scallops, the family loved their options, especially the added heat on the side. They could add as much as they liked.

We were starving as we talked with the bar tender at the White Tarpon. We wanted a Cuban but not any Cuban sandwich would do. He recommended Bien (it was under another name then) . As we walked out the door, the bartender said make sure to get the corn on the cob, it's the best you have ever had!... More

We stopped here for the day while on a cruise ship. It was probably a 15 minute walk down Eaton before we arrived. Luckily there were some outside bench tables available so at least we got to sit down. We had the usual Caribbean Pork Roast and grilled corn, which we would have ordered 2 corns per person now.

I've been coming to Key West for years, and never particularly noticed Bien until my cab driver coming in from the airport pointed it out. I figured he just promoted it to the tourists, and didn't think much about it. But a few days later, wandering by hungry at mid day, a friend and I stopped in. That friend is... More

Came for the Roasted Corn with Parmesan cheese and lime juice, Pulled Pork Roast Dinner with Jasmine Rice and Black Beans, and a side Bien Salad. You order by number. All items are served in Styrofoam dinner cartons, whether take-away or dine at the few stool tables outside. Yes, ambiance is very close to dining outside a street food vendor... More
