We went to the Hideaway Cafe for their early dinner. It was fabulous and a great bargain. We had Caesar salad and I asked for extra anchovies which they happily provided. We both had duck which was excellent, nice and crispy and no fat. They gave a half duck with potato and vegetables. They also served garlic bread with a... More

We've eaten here several times. Usually it's quite good though overpriced. This time it was both overpriced and over cooked... six shrimp scampi on a plate, cooked to rubber! I chose the potatoes (which were good but quite spiced... too spicy for the others of us who had them.) And it came with three green beans and two thin slices... More

When you pull up to park you're not sure where it is. It's upstairs and has great views. We got there early enough for the sunset specials which are great values. It wouldn't have mattered. The service was outstanding and the food was incredible

Oceanfront fine dining. Located on the second floor oceanside of the Rainbow Bend Resort. Reservations provided for a set up for 5 couples. My wife had the onion soup and shrimp cocktail which she stated were very good. I had onion soup & the blackened hogfish accompanied with mashed potatoes string beans and carrots which were delicious. Various other meals... More

We were recommended this location by the concierge at Hawks Cay and this wonderful site, so I'll say both were correct. From the moment we realized we were in the right place and saw the sign to go upstairs I knew we were home. Greeted promptly, cared for the entire time. I was strongly suggested to get the duck instead... More

The right people can create the most incredible food be atmosphere almost anywhere. Robert and staff always give the most amazing food and ambiance. The Seafood Wellington is my new favorite.

We went at 5pm for the sunset special - which was amazing value.The staff made us feel really welcome from the moment we walked through the door. I had the filet medallions - superb. And we also really enjoyed the Pinot on their extensive wine list. Will be back next time we are in the Keys!

Hideaway Cafe is most certainly a hidden gem of the Florida Keys. Nestled at the rear of the Rainbow Bend Resort, Hideaway has all the class and amenities of a fine dining restaurant and still perfectly exudes a casual, comfortable and even romantic (if you want it) atmosphere. Sitting on the enclosed porch allows a view of the water (during... More

The food at Hideaway Cafe never disappoints. Do NOT be fooled by the parking lot or exterior, this is one of the best restaurants in the keys! Spectacular ocean front views and good food. It is one of the few places in the Key where u can have great seafood but also have high quality meats such as Duck, Lamb... More
