    From Alice's across Duval street at night

    We ate at Alice's, but apparently this restaurant also has had Alice as a chef. It is right across the street.

    Favorite Dish: This is their appetizer and soup menu from the internet.

    Caribbean grilled Shrimp Gazpacho - $8.95

    Char-grilled fresh, local shrimp served with a chilled soup made with Caribbean fruit and vegetables, garnished with toasted coconut and finished with a spiced rum float (must be 21)

    Azteca Shrimp - $9.95

    Chef’s favourite! Fresh local shrimp are char-grilled, then served in a delicious orange and coriander sauce with a black bean cake and garnished with sour cream and fresh cilantro.

    Calamari Fritti - $8.95

    Fresh tender calamari, tossed in our secret seasoning and fried crisp and golden. Served with cocktail sauce.

    Caribbean Chicken - $8.95

    Char-grilled skewered chicken tenders smothered in our signature homemade Caribbean rum BBQ sauce, served with mango-black bean salsa.

    Lobster Salad - $12.95

    Our signature appetizer features poached and chilled Florida lobster tail served with an apple and celery slaw and mixed baby greens then drizzled with basil oil and aged balsamic vinegar.

    Oysters Rockefeller - $9.95

    Succulent fresh and plump oysters served on the half shell and topped with our delicious spinach, bacon and parmesan cream Rockefeller stuffing.

    Caribbean Crab Cakes - $10.95

    Our delicious crab cakes are made with the finest blue crab meat, served with mango-black bean salsa and key lime honey mustard.

    Small Garden Salad - $5.95

    Mixed baby greens with tomato, cucumber, red onion and kalamata olives, tossed in our lemon oregano vinaigrette

    La te da (Alice's): Great Service, Original Recipes!

    We had a lot of wonderful dinners in Key West, this one was over-all experience: the food, service and ambience were all just right. This is a very small place, reservations are a must, but once seated we never felt rushed. Our waitress had a great personality and took time to chat, although obviously busy, we were never ignored or brushed-off.
    The owner & chef, Alice, spent some time with us and she also just seemed so relaxed and comfortable that it made us all the more so.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood, seafood, seafood....of course, that is all I ever eat while near the water! I do remember a side dish that was so very tasty and easy to do at home: Alice adds some coconut to the rice. I am not a big coconut fan, unless it is toasted, but it really tastes good in rice.

  • La te da: Exellent dining

    by Kittymjau Written Nov 26, 2003

    It´s a gay friendly place with gourmet food. Be sure to book a table, we didn´t but sat at a bar table wich was ok, but the service wasn´t so great but I´m sure it is in the restaurant. The food was exellent and the place is beatiful. On Duval street, but on the more quiet part. The y also have cabaret there but we didn´t go.
    Go there but be sure to book a table before!
