OK, I'll admit it. The only reason why we went to Red Fish, Blue Fish was because we had a coupon for free Key lime pie. After an evening of watching the sunset and shenanigans at Mallory Square, Red Fish, Blue Fish was a convenient stopping point for libations and sustenance.
We sat at the bar and had a few Yuenglings and water to quench our thirst. For an appetizer, we decided to try the conch ceviche ($10), mainly because we've had conch fritters, but we didn't really know what conch tasted like. You know those chewy pieces of the conch fritter? That's what conch tastes like: chewy.
For our meals we had mahi mahi tacos ($very expensive at $18) and a shrimp po'boy ($11). The food was good, and the portions plentiful. Service was OK, but not spectacular, despite a relatively quiet bar. The Key lime pie was really tasty and recommended!
I guess this is a good choice if you happen to be in the area.
Very clean and the decor was neat. Next to my table was an aquarium full of neon-glowing fish. Waiter was very nice and funny. Food is always superb.
Favorite Dish: Fish'n'chips
House salad (they make thier own croutons which are awesome)
When we were in Key West, Red Fish Blue Fish had just opened, maybe five days earlier. They were still working out the kinks a little, with regard to running the restaurant itself.
That being said, RFBF had an interesting and varied menu, with a lot of interesting twists on preparation, especially for their seafood dishes.
The thing that struck my mind was the ultimate lobster omelette that they featured for late breakfast eaters. A lobster omelette might be JUST the thing to get you rolling early in the morning...or at least early by Key West standards, say 10:45 am. Maybe add a pot of good coffee.
Favorite Dish: Hey, we just did some afternoon appetizer sampling and it was all fine and dandy. Boiled shrimp, crabcakes...the standards.
Again, I might have to try the lobster omelette some morning. They mentioned something about it being seasoned with champagne in some form or fashion. Sounds like a step above an Egg McMuffin or Denny's Grand Slam, doesn't it?
I had the best jamblaya there, loads of shrimp and suasage. The service was excellent and we loved the atmosphere, old building with lots of vines.
