Fine Dining in Key West

Is there such a thing? A coouple we know is going there for a celebration and we want to buy them a really nice $200-ish. But where? They wouldn't like stuffy, but they do like fine food. Any suggestions?

  1. I would suggest Alice's Key West or A & B Lobster House

    1. Pisces or A&B Lobster House would fit the bill.

      1. There is very little "stuffy" in Key West but if your friends appreciate good food, I am going to suggest Cafe Marquesa, Michael's and Prime 951. All three have a strong local following. Good luck!

        1. I know this reply is a little late, but Hot Tin Roof in the Ocean Key Resort and Spa is great! My husband and I ate there about a year-and-a-half ago and had a fabulous meal. It's got a pretty, romantic setting on the water but not at all stuffy.

            If I'm not mistaken, there is also a nice place at Sunset Pier - which would be super romantic in my opnion. I'm not sure just how expensive it is, but the view would be spectacular.

          2. Pisces and Alice's are great. If you go to Pisces ask for Mark - he'll go a really good job and he's knowledgeable about wines. Pisces is also a tad more formal than Alice's. If you go to Alice's be sure to get the tropical shortcake for dessert - I never leave without that!
            Louie's Backyard is nice too and you can sit outside.
