Where to Eat in Key Biscayne: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Enedina Augsburger

Key Biscayne is home to some of the most brilliant, white sandy beaches and offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities, including bicycling, tennis, golf, fishing, kite boarding, windsurfing, boating and sailing. To get to Key Biscayne by car you’ll pass the Miami Seaquarium, home to the original “Flipper”, before driving across the causeway to the idyllic island of Key Biscayne. Bayside Market Place has something for everyone! Dine with friends at an exciting restaurant or visit one or all of the many thrilling attractions, like South Beach, Jungle Island or Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Visit the 170-year old Cape Florida Lighthouse or Crandon Park Beach and meet Miami's biggest star - Lolita the Killer Whale. Crandon Beach is also famous for its parade of famous photographers and models. Some of the world’s best fishing and scuba diving is done right off shore on amazing artificial reefs made ingeniously from everything from recycled tug boats to airplanes! Amazing! Enjoy a round of golf, play tennis, go windsurfing or spend some quiet time with a good book under the shade of a palm tree on the Village Green. Here, miles of beautiful beaches and natural settings can be enjoyed by bike, rollerblades or scooters. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation Area is located on the southern tip of Key Biscayne and is one of the most beautiful natural areas near Miami. Follow the Key Biscayne Heritage Trail and experience incredible blue waters, barrier island ecosystems and a prehistoric fossil reef. See where the Nixon Winter Whitehouse stood, where pirates hid in Hurricane harbor and watch dolphins and manatee.

Milanezza - Key Biscayne

Milanezza is the meeting place of Key Biscayne that provides the gathering of family and friends with an array of Italian ideals that have been passed down from generation to generation: to be treated like home, devoted to your roots, and to have a sense of tradition, family, and hard work. As Argentines we stay true to these universal customs, and we have created the best of our cuisine, combined with the taste of Italy: Milanesa and Pizza, put together. An original concept that offers a different dish. Milanezza is a slice of breaded meat (beef, chicken, eggplant or fish), fried or baked, covered with the essence of pizza (sauces and toppings). The menu has more than 15 combinations of Milanezza in two sizes, small (for one) & large (for two). It also includes a wide variety of international appetizers, salads, pasta, sandwiches and grilled dishes. A selection of craft draft beers and wine bar complement the menu. Milanezza provides an Italian concept with a Latin-American soul: the essence of sharing the table with homemade and healthy food served in a casual, warm, soothing family atmosphere. Milanezza - the true taste of family.

We went to Milanezza because it was the only one open at 10pm on a Saturday in Key Biscayne! It was nice - they have great beers and we ordered a mixed plate with antipasti that was very good for 2 people for 25 dollars. Staff extremely helpful and friendly!

Starbucks

Reviewed By Dan C - Fort Myers, Florida

No drive through wouldn't seem to be "highly convenient" but Key Biscayne is small. Unlike other Starbucks I frequent, this one is always walking distance. Same gold star service and quality I receive at other Starbucks locations I frequent in multiple cities...this one being multi-lingual of course.

Reviewed By David C - North Yorkshire

This place came highly recommended and with good reason as the food was amazing and the service impeccable. It is situated inside a mall but has been established with great care and is very well designed which makes it feel upmarket. The prices are reasonable though and the wine list extensive with some top of the range labels combined with reasonably priced bottles. We had an excellent Rioja Crianza to complement half a dozen tapas which mae an excellent dinner. A must when visiting Key Biscayne.

The Golden Hog

The Golden Hog Market was born from the idea that a small neighborhood farmer’s market could serve high quality, delicious food and beverages at a fair price, without losing that friendly, hometown atmosphere. Our emphasis on service, and selection- like our artisanal cheeses, caviar, gourmet food items and specialty deli meats- have all come together to create a unique experience that sets us apart.

We ate outdoors--beautiful weather--so there's not much to say about ambiance as it's in a strip mall. Food was good but not memorable. Wine selection good but very pricey. Service was excellent. Owner was there but didn't stop by table which would have been a plus.

Rusty Pelican

You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.

Reviewed By Tatyana R - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I have visited Rusty Pelican twice in one week. Food is good, not the best in Miami but also not the worst. View is as good as it gets, Day or night. Service was ok inside, but outside, a Hispanic girl that was serving us, was, sorry, a moron. We had to ask a guy, who wasn’t even our server to help, and he was way more helpful than her. Seating inside is loud especially after 7pm.

Novecento Key Biscayne

The cuisine at Novecento is a refined co-existence of Argentine, Mediterranean and Pan Latin cuisines heightened by French techniques, this style is perhaps best called NUEVO BISTRO. A comfort food restaurant catering first and foremost to the neighborhood clientele. Excellent food, good value and outstanding service create an atmosphere that is sure to become a regular hang-out. This sibling of the New York’s most welcoming meeting point, regardless of final destination is always Novecento. “MEET ME AT 900" Enjoy our Argentinean signature dishes, the typical Empanadas, Provoleta, Sweetbreads with a twist and flavorful grilled steaks. The menu is complimented by a great selection of wines and crafted cocktails. Bar bites also available.
