Perfect place to watch the sunset. The food is excellent although pricey. Our service was poor at the start (we finally had to track down a waiter after sitting unattended for 15 minutes after being seated). The service got better as the evening progressed. You'll spend some cash here, but the atmosphere is well worth it.

I have been coming here for years.. this year was exceptional to say the least. The service is ALWAYS on point and the food has literally been exceptional. I had the seafood pasta this evening and was tempted to ask for seconds. The staff is awesome as well. Our hostess Gretel Was absolutely amazing.

Beautiful place, two of us shared chips and guacamole/pico and a couple drinks a piece. It was good but with the tip was 70.00. Very nice but pricy. Great place to relax and watch the sunset.

I visited Islamorada with my teenage daughter at the end of February. We stayed four nights at Cheeka Lodge, so this restaurant was very close and convenient. During our four night stay, we ended up eating at Morada Bay twice! We loved it. There is no waiting for or battling for a table from which to watch the sunset. We... More

Beautiful setting to have a sunset meal or even drinks. Tasty food, very capable service and a relaxed feel eating under the sky make this a magical meal. Cocktails and the blackened fish tacos are a must try.

First alert. I ordered the lamb and the menu did not say it had pistachios on it. Well, I have a nut allergy. They happily made me another one though and it came out very quickly. The first one (with pistachios) took about an hour for all of our food (party of 8). In addition the chef would not prepare... More

Hello and thank your for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your constructive criticism. Yes, we're re-printing our menus with the word "pistachio" added into the description; and until then we have instructed our servers that they must mention this when describing the dish to guests. The Chef was correct in that we are prepped to make... More

Standard selections plus some interesting ones. A little pricey but. Dry good food. Service was okay - could have been more attentive, but they were busy.

What an amazing lunch/brunch spot on the water with beautiful ocean views. This was one of my most favorite spots as we came here for lunch one day and is located next to Pierres which we came back for dinner. Highly recommend this spot!

This place provides and awesome experience for anyone visiting the Florida Keys. You get to sit on the sand, facing the sunset and water, while eating delicious seafood! What could be better than enjoying dinner with loved ones while your toes are in the sand? I cannot wait to go back!
