Café Marquesa

Fine Dining Key West

Often rated the best restaurant in Key West, no one does fine dining in Key West like Cafe Marquesa.

Like Charleston and other great ports of the South, Key West offers endless inspiration for chefs. Once a stop on trade routes to the Caribbean, the island developed a signature cuisine that’s practically an open book for flavors. Pair this with the bounty from two bodies of water and the signatures of great chefs who have dedicated time here and a compelling cuisine emerges.

From its inception, Café Marquesa has led the way in expressing a unique, coastal cuisine. Our kitchen combines the finest seafood, meats, and produce with classic preparations and creativity. We offer fine dining with an authentic, homespun essence, like freshly baked bread and desserts  made daily in-house. No wonder Café Marquesa is such a local favorite for special occasions, and a place to settle into and savor. Every dinner layers memory upon memory. Join us and find yours.
