The food and service at the Hideaway is just great. It was very surprising to find this in the middle of the Florida Keys. If you get a chance try it.

Located upstairs at the Rainbow Bend Resort (next to the office), this little restaurant has a nice view of the water and had the weather cooperated, it would have made a great sunrise breakfast locale. Greeted by our friendly waiter we sat out the enclosed porch to enjoy the view/rain. We ordered the basics, eggs & ham for me, French... More

Memorable view, lovely atmosphere and an eating experience that made for a heavenly evening. Chef Frieda's duck, a hearty serving, was cooked to perfection...with a sauce that I will never forget, it was so uniquely delicious. All ingredients were fresh with generous servings that especially satisfied my sons diver appetite.

It just doesn't get any better than this. If you like excellent food at a reasonable price with a great wine selection and great service this is the place. Forget the resort restaurant with the screaming kids and overpriced menu. This is where you want to go for atmosphere, service and an experience. Dining can either be the fulfilling of... More

We had the most incredible meal at Hideaway Cafe! We will never forget the wonderful atmosphere. Our favourite crooners played in the background as we enjoyed relaxed but attentive service and a view that is one the best in the Keys. The escargot on the menu (we had both ways) was prepared perfectly, the rack of lamb was accompanied by... More

Well hidden French gem! We look forward to going here on each Keys trip - and is worth the indulgence and higher cost - but truly excellent food too!! Small but very attentive staff. Cannot go wrong here (except to not to)

While the food is good it is vastly overpriced. If you are a guest of the resort your breakfast is included with the room. It is not much of a breakfast and they rate it at a $5.95 value and there a 5 items at that price. A really decent breakfast is available if you subtract the $5.95 for the... More

This is the sort of place I am nearly loathe to review. It's so good - I want to keep it to myself. Robert runs the front house and does so with great panache. If you don't know this place is here - you'd never find it. It's in the back of an old 50's motel (also very well run... More
