Butterfly Café captures the essence of island cuisine with an emphasis on quality, local ingredients and, of course, ocean fresh seafood in a beautiful airy Marathon restaurant setting. Open daily for dinner, the menu and wine list at Butterfly Café change seasonally. Children will delight in a special menu designed just for them. Dinner is served nightly from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at our restaurant in Marathon and reservations are encouraged.

The Butterfly Cafe is a beautiful restaurant on the property at Tranquility Bay Resort. It is absolutely beautiful and the food was equally amazing and delicious! The filet mignon was done perfectly to my taste. The scallops were heavenly! Our server timed our meal perfectly made great recommendations and took care of us like we were family. I highly recommend this restaurant

We sat outside on the porch of this beautiful restaurant overlooking the grounds of Tranquility Bay. The scallop risotto is my favorite dish. The service and suggestions are great and the food is awesome. Save room for the key lime pie with chocolate crust.

Our server Amanda was awesome!!!!! So much ch fun, never wanted for anything. Food was outstanding-lobster tails, shrimp risotto, jerk chicken. And made a delicious vegetable pasta primavera for me!!! Desert was ridiculous-chocolate cake. Should have shared two . Beautiful old world type place, very key westish, but without the chaos.

I would title this "finest in the Keys," but I'm not familiar enough with all the options to make that claim. But the Butterfly Cafe in Marathon is definitely one of the top in all the Keys. The location at Tranquility Bay resort is gorgeous; don't miss walking out past the pool and tiki bar to the beach. The menu has gorgeous sections. We shared the Butterfy Salad (yummy) served with wonderful breads, and also shared the panko-crusted grouper which was beautifully prepared with potatoes and vegetables, all superb. Our server, Cheryl, was prompt, helpful, and friendly. If we visit Marathon again, we will stay at Tranquility Bay so we can experience more of the great eats at the Butterfly Cafe and try out the tiki bar!
