Girls weekend in the keys, one of my friends recommended this restaurant. At first glance, not what I expected. Upstairs within a small, quaint little resort, but with a nice beach. Once upstairs, a tiny bar area and then two small dining rooms. Food choices were exceptional, had filet and shrimp, others had lamb and fish dishes, all were wonderful.... More

I returned to the Keys for an annual conference. This restaurant was a highlight of last year's trip and I wasn't disappointed. Shrimp bisque, roast duck and fabulous flaming strawberry desert in a quiet hidden away spot.

What a lovely surprise this restaurant is. It really is a 'hideaway' cafe, hidden within what looks like a not so special resort. The food and service is outstanding. We had shrimp bisque, shrimp scampi and clam and mussel broth to start, followed by seafood Wellington and hideaway seafood special for the mains. Following the recommendations for white chocolate cheese... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at the Hideaway. The waitress and servers were great. We also were checked on by, I presume, the owner and/or manager. The view was nice, although cloudy, so no great sunset views. My recommendations: the escargot, the duck and the white chocolate cheesecake (really good!!). I had the filet mignon, which was just ok,... More

For fine dining Keys style, this is the place.Hidden behind a 60s motel, with jalousie windows, and classic american songbook music piped throughout , the atmosphere might seem a little run down- or kitschy-- but the excellent service and great food gives it all meaning-relax and enjoy the old Florida Keys.

This is one of my favorite restaurants for date nights with my husband. We love the setting and ambiance of this place. The menu offers a selective choice and everything is cooked to perfection. Service is outstanding, the view is serene. Some of our favorite dishes are the rack of lamb, the duck a l'orange, seafood papillote, and the creme... More
