Small hidden restaurant with a great view and the food is also very good and resonably priced. Great friendly fast service. You must climb a tricky stairway to get up there though. Recommended

We had just finished seeing the aquarium and were hungry when we walked by Roof Top. We were able to sit outside in the shade and enjoy our lunch. I had fish tacos & several folks had quesadillas. We had a really good waiter & attentive. Likely a great spot for dinner too .. next trip.

We had lunch on the roof top the other day. It has a nice setting overlooking Front street and the trolleys. Had a blackened fish sandwich which was very good.

we attended a wedding reception and this place was beautiful! It has 3 areas- a centrally located large bar with a nice sized dance floor, and an eating area on one side and an outdoor patio on the other side. This was perfect since most of the people at the wedding smoked- so there was plenty of room for people to move about! The drinks were delicious too. This is a BEAUTIFUL place!

Ate at Roof Top Café with a bunch of friends on a long weekend trip to Key West. We did make reservations in advance but would not have needed them since the town is still coming back from the hurricane. Restaurant had no damage but their menu was cut down considerably. They claimed they still had issues receiveing their normal provisions but we didn't hear this from any other placed we ate at during our visit.

We had a nice outside table to accommodate our group. Service was good. Food was good as well. Again, limited selections but still enough to accommodate everyone. I would go again in the future and hope that the full menu is available.

The restaurant is only 2 blocks from Mallory square so make reservtions after you watch the sunset and head over.
