Time Out Says
But once your feet are firmly in the silky soft sand and all you can hear is the waves on the shore, you’ll know.
And it only gets better once the first plate of food arrives – the curried coconut encased in a flaky golden pastry shell, the irresistible cotija cheese with smoked chilli, the guacamole with enormous well-seasoned tortilla chips – you’ll be left in no doubt: Key West cooks up stunning Caribbean food.
The restaurant (which is equally charming inside – all turquoise and whites) opens directly onto rolling beach which stretches all the way to trendy Nikki Beach Club. But Key West couldn’t be more different from the pumping beach spot in terms of atmosphere. It’s totally relaxed and the island vibes make you feel a world away from the city.
Don’t miss the Ital taco (diners can pick between hard or soft shell), which features an exotic black bean mix that’s lifted by a sweet pineapple relish and mango slaw.
Sitting lazily in the sunshine with a mixed drink in one hand and a Jamaican festival (a moreish type of doughnut) in the other while enjoying unobstructed views out to sea – it doesn’t get much better than this.
WHAT IS IT...
Stunning, laid-back spot with ace sea views
