A buddy of mine found this place when he was walking to Duval from the place we were staying so we decided to check it out. The food was great and everyone in our group seemed to have the same thoughts. i went with the Huevos Rancheros which I am now calling the hangover cure. It was a big portion... More

Deliciously worth the walk. Everything is made fresh upon ordering so my seared scallop sandwich came out steaming hot. My husband tried the press which was mounded with meat and full of flavor. Don't miss out on Bien. The staff will leave you with a smile as well.

Nice spot on Eaton, just far enough away from Duval for a kick back quiet breakfast. The cafe con leche, Cuban toast with eggs is a great hearty meal. Outside seating is great for hanging and making friends.

Bien has really good food but be ready to take some home if you are not a big eater. Their sandwich's are large and you need to eat them in the wrapper or they will fall apart. Be sure to try their roasted corn on the cob!

Saw the great reviews on Yelp, so decided to try the food. The food is fantastic - Cuban style-5 stars, but the location is 1 star. This is primarily a take out restaurant. There is very limited seating outside at very tiny tables on a very noisy street corner. Parking is also a challenge. Parking is also a challenge.

A little off the beaten path, but well worth the walk down Eaton Street - food was fantastic and the prices were hard to beat for Key West. It is a take-out restaurant that closes early - 7:00 pm - and it is not licensed. But the food makes you forget all that.

Bien happens to be right next to our Bed & Breakfast, and it smelled amazing, so we stopped over for lunch. It has outdoor dining only, benches and tables which were full, so we got take out and brought it back to Knowles House. Food is simple, caribbean/latin meals. Lots of meat free options. I had beans, rice and chicken... More

We were told upfront there would be a half hour wait , but we weren't in a hurry..thank goodness we stayed! Hubby had pork with rice and beans, I had the salad with chicken thighs. Priced right, huge serving sizes. And the quality was excellent. Amazingly good!

Went for breakfast. It was fast, cheap, and very good! Portions were big and kept us full until dinner. My sister who does not like spicy food at all said hers was too hot, so keep that in mind if you are sensitive. Personally, I love spicy food and thought mine was not too spicy at all and even added... More
