I went to Bien last year, but this time I enjoyed it much more! The food is great. We ordered the Caribbean Roast sandwich and split it. Super super tasty! Everything is great about this sandwich- including the amazing onions, sauce, bread, etc. Yum!! This time I also ordered the fire roasted corn, which was also very very tasty. I... More

We came here with the whole family, everyone ordered something different and everyone loved what they ordered! "Best steak sandwich ever", "best Caribbean plate", "best shrimp in red sauce".... So this place seems to have lived up to our expectations!! Great place for lunch! Everyone has to try this place at least once!!

Not sure how this became number one. It is good, but very small and unassuming. Only has out door seating, not a problem this time of year, but I would want some ac in the summer. Food taste great, loved the vegetarian choices. I asked for spice level 0 but the beans were still hot to my wimpy taste.

Incredible flavours! I'm not really a sandwich person but I loved the Carribean roast Cuban sandwich - especially the onions that are on it. Definitely head to Bien for lunch if you're visiting Key West. Really wish we could have gone back for another sandwich from there!

Haven't eaten here in awhile because of schedule conflicts and summer hours but it's back open and the food is just as amazing as always! Tourists--it's worth the wait in line during peak meal times! They get your food to you pretty quickly and you won't be disappointed. My favorites are the #1, #2, #14 and the corn on the... More

This is a local favorite, sandwiches with a latin flavor. Great for take out or eating on a limited number of outdoor tables. All good--sandwhich or rice/beans/pork trio "bowl".
