The restaurant looked excellent from the outside so we decided to book a table for dinner. Our experience was definitely very efficient, and the food was good ( I had a fantastic lamb as my main which came with couscous that was ok, while my husband had a delicious steak which came with a mushroom puree he didn't care for...

Cafe Marquesa is a lovely place to enjoy a special meal. Intimate, pretty with wonderful service and excellent food! it feels more like a NYC cafe than a Key West restaurant. The only negative is no outside dining.

Stop reading after this sentence if you simply want to know, should I go? YES. We reserved for Valentine's Day weeks ahead of time; we did not know it was a prix fixe but that turnd out excellent for Cafe Marquesa. To start - decor - the Valentine's decorations were so well done, simple and fun without any cheesy quality.... More

I have been to Key West several times but this was my first time dining at Cafe Marquesa. The service was top notch and the waitress was excellent. The food was delicious. The only negative is that the restaurant is a bit small so the tables for 2 are close together. However, the food and service made up for that.... More

We have visited Cafe Marquesa whenever we visit Key West. We have been 7 or 8 times through the years. Last night we went again and had a fabulous dinner. We started with Lemon Drop Martini's, done perfectly with fresh lemon. We had Seared Duck Breast and Grilled Wahoo with Udon Noddles for dinner. Both were delicious! I especially liked... More

My husband and I dined at Cafe Marquesa at the end of our short stay in Key West. We were actually staying at the hotel attached to the restaurant. The meal was extremely delicious. The service top notch. We would be more than happy to recommend Cafe Marquesa.

We come to the Keys every year and this is one of our favorites. We had great service and great food. I had the snapper and my partner had the lamb and they were both excellent. Just wish I had room for the dessert because it sounded really good.

I'm a sucker for being well taken care of at any business establishment...and these folks pushed service over the top. We had reservations (recommended) for this lovely, smallish restaurant. We were celebrating an anniversary which I'd mentioned in my on-line reservation request. We were instantly shown to a very nice table and it was covered with confetti and other celebratory... More

Really interesting and innovative food. Smallish room, attached to hotel of same name. I had the vegetarian main dish and it was large enough that I didn't need an appetizer to round out the meal. the key lime napoleon was delicious.
