I was here with family and friends and had a very pleasant evening. Great service and food tasted delicious! It was also a friends birthday and the waitress took good care. All the dishes we ordered were excellent.

We had such a peaceful evening here. We sat outside on the deck near the marina, and the breeze was great. We went for dinner. It's a little pricey but we shared a pasta dish and had a soup and salad. The portions are very large so we were both very full and it all came with some nice fresh... More

Went there for a friends birthday dinner, wasn't crowded at all, so I mistakenly thought service would be efficient. Nope! Our waiter just couldn't get it together. I ordered the special appetizer of the evening, cracked conch, it was tough and the coating was soggy. The main course was unremarkable. We didn't have dessert, honestly I didn't want to be... More

We were at The Old Tavernier tonight. Had a great meal in The Dining Room. Good value as we shared a pasta main course plus a salad. Otherwise a bit pricey but the portions are very generous. Great service too.

Recently house sitting in tavernier, relaxing and never wanted to go far to eat. We walked across street and ate in old old tavernier. Service was really good and good was also good. We ate inside but also has outside dining. I enjoyed my juicy New York stop and my wife ate the snapper. Worth a visit

Quite expensive but enjoyed sitting on veranda to eat. Seats not very comfortable but didn't complain as they all seem to be the same chair.

Booked a table for us and our friends, my husband ordered the lobster thermidor, having recommending it, after a significant time lapse the server came and said it wasn't available, we both then had scallops Provençal which wasn't very good. On the other hand our friends enjoyed their meal, we didn't go back there

This was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at. So glad it was. Food was amazing, portions were huge and our server Mary was the best. Definitely a reason to take another trip to the Keys!

The Lobster Thermidor is the Greatest anywhere.They have a lot of great food but that lobster is the best anywhere. We had a great time celebrating my birthday. Will always recommend this place.
