I have tried every restaurant in the middle keys and this is by far the number 1. The consistency is just a must, food is always great, service from the hostess to the servers is 5 stars.

We ate at the Butterfly Cafe the first night in Marathon. It was so good, we would have gone back, but we like to try different local restaurants when somewhere new. We will absolutely go back when in the Keys again!

The food was simply amazing and tasted very good. The wait staff was very attentive but not overly so. A bit on the higher price side, so be prepared.
