Somewhat of a local legend in Key West, the Blue Heaven is one of just a handful of joints in the city which aren't purely seafood focused. Blue Heaven is a Caribbean restaurant first established in 1992 by an artist and writer. With its wild decor, it’s like stepping into a jungle, but the food is seriously good. These guys serve up carrot and curry soup, miso eggplant salad and scallops provençale like you’ve never tasted it before.
What with all that swimming, sunbathing and sightseeing you’re bound to be doing in Key West, you’re bound to work up an appetite. The best things to do in this incredibly laid-back city range from beautiful National Parks and boat trips to buzzing streets and beaches, but it’s very much known for its fantastic food scene too.
First, of course, there’s the seafood. Trays of oysters, clam soup and Korean shrimp tacos can all be eaten looking out over the ocean, with a fruity cocktail or glass of wine in hand. But there’s plenty of non-fish options to be found in Key West too, from Caribbean cuisine to vegetarian spots and that all-important Instagrammable brunch. Whatever you’re into, Key West has a restaurant for you. Here’s our pick of the best.
