I had heard good things about Spanish Gardens and called for a reservation only to learn they had closed. Sad. I believe something else may be opening in its place but I know nothing about it.

Who would think there is a great tapas restaurant in the Keys?!? Everything is always great and fresh! Sangria is delicious! Service is always friendly and knowledgeable!

Great food! Family owned restaurant and the chef is the owner. Everything we order was very delicious. My husband did not stop talking about the great time he had. I lost the pictures but this is a must restaurant when visiting the keys.
