“Awesomely Fun”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Not only were the drinks here AMAZING, but the bartender was BEYOND wonderful! Geri, with a G, was the best, friendliest bartenders that we encountered on our trip! She was fun and funny and made wickedly good drinks! Even the non-pretty ones! We had the Key Lime Colada, the Pama Pomegranate Margarita and the not so pretty Mango Mojito (?) and they were delicious beyond belief! Geri answered all of our questions with a smile, shared stories and was even going to meet up with us after she was done to hang out on our last night on the Island! If you are looking for a fun place, visit Geri during the day. You won't be disappointed!

“Get away from hot sun”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We spent the morning walking and had worked up quite a thirst and just needed to get out of the sun. Found the Roof Top Cafe. We sat outside on 2nd floor under tree. Wonderful breeze. Great people watching. Crab cakes were fantastic!!! Would go back again.

“Great wedding venue”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We recently had our reception with about 70 friends and family at Roof Top Cafe. We chose the venue based off online reviews and we couldn't be any happier with the way it turned out.

The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive to our requests. Restaurant management coordinated well with our wedding day coordinator and they were very flexible on timing. In addition, the overall ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic and the outdoor patio area gave you the sense of being in the tree tops overlooking front street.

Finally, the cocktails were excellent - very good margaritas and mojitos. They even made great Rum Swizzles based on the ingredients we gave them.

Reviewed 28 June 2014

We ate here our first night in Key West. Very pretty at night with all the lights around and looking down onto the streets. Food was delicious. We had no leftovers to take home because it was so yummy!
