Delicious food and great atmosphere. You have to wait a while to be seated, but it's well worth it. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

I said this restaurant doesn't make sense and I mean it. Here we are in car parking parched Key West, walking into the combined backyard of four former houses, asking a hostess to sit at their outdoors bar or tables shaded by trees and umbrellas, There is a sand "floor", a psychic's "office" and ping pong table in the back,...

If you come at brunch be prepared to wait, enjoy a perfectly crafted cocktail from the friendly bartender and or shop in the gift shop. Everything I have ever had here is perfectly executed. This gem is an American success story. We have been enjoying this experience since it was " My Little Blue Heaven" and enjoy every visit.

We ate here after doing the Hemingway tour. We had great weather and this was the perfect place to dine alfresco and have a refreshing cocktail. The food and service were great. It was a little pricey but all of Key West is tourist centric so it was reasonable when taken in that context.

We come here every year for dinner (haven't made it for their brunch, but not from a lack of trying). The atmosphere is amazing - picture an open air courtyard while table and lights mixed between beautiful trees and lush greenery. There is usually live music, most recently a soulful singer the night we went. The food is always fresh... More

Our #1 choice if we are here again but only for one night. We had other meals elsewhere which were very good, but this was the best. A couple of blocks south of Duval, but seemed safe enough. Restaurant itself is outdoors, and off-street, with mulch as ground cover. As an ex-farmer, I loved the chickens and chicks which roamed... More

We had a girls weekend in Key West and I recommended Blue Heaven for dinner. I go there every time I'm in Key West. The food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals and agreed it was a great choice and would definitely go back again

Quite a find! Looks like an unpretentious little restaurant but is so Much more! Excellent food. Very good service. Music. Little shop that sells art and baked banana bread-just a little bit of everything. Tropical ambiance and fair prices although the coffee went for $3.50 a cup. Still, the eggs were fantastic!

We saw this place on the conch train tour earlier. Remembered it was by Ernest Hemingway's house. We drove here for lunch. Great patio to enjoy the Florida sun. Enjoyed the fresh fish sandwich along with a side salad. Good service and reasonable prices. You can dine in or out. We chose to dine outside under our umbrella'd tables. Good... More
