Places There Will Not Be Another Visit

1. Salsa Loca.  In the top 5 of worst food I’ve eaten in 49 years of life.

2. Conch Republic Seafood Company (a/k/a “Conch Farm”). The only thing good about this place is the location.  Chain-esque food + tourist trap + lying waiter (you’re going to tell fishermen that the grouper is the “freshest on the island” when season has been closed for weeks?) = the only way I’m going back there is if the New York Yankees are making an appearance.

3. Caroline’s.  Portions were plentiful enough, shrimp were frozen (in a place noted for fresh fish? Really?), and everything else tasted like it came out of a Sysco’s bag.

    Fun site!
    There are new, hard working owners at LOBOS; couldn’t be nicer. I often get their wraps served as a salad; but today she wrapped my good burger in romaine as I’m concentrating on liquid carbs. Their tuna tatake is mighty fine and big portions.Worth another visit.

      Thanks for the info! One certainly cannot hold the mistakes of a prior owner against the new ones. Will have to check it out. Thank you again for the information 🙂

    Ok Miss Prissy, its just about that time!!

    We will be in KW next Wed until Sunday and the excitement is almost too much to take! I am having a very hard time concentrating on work at this time….LOL!
    Anyway I have a request that I hope you can help me with.
    We have two couples that will be celebrating our 25th and want to have a “Fine Dining” experience this Sat.
    Of the listed restaurants what are the cuisines & your recommendations.
    Thanks for your information it has helped me greatly.

    I read your review of the Cuban restaurant “El Meson de Pepe” and would really like to enjoy a GOOD Cuban experience. Do you have a particular restaurant that you can advise me on?

    Again thank you for any help.

    Hello Jerry!

    I am happy to help.

    1) Pisces is local seafood and Maine lobster with a French influence.

    2) A&B is classic and contemporary fusion. In addition to local seafood and Maine lobster, their steaks are very good quality.

    3) Cafe’ Marquesa is contemporary American and again, wonderful seafood.

    4) Fin is Caribbean small plates and there are often tastings of various countries/regions.

    5) Hot Tin Roof is Cuban-influenced upscale bistro-style cuisine. Very good seafood here as well, but also other items.

    For wonderful Cuban food, see my review on Havana 1 on Truman Avenue.

    Thanks for those rankings. A much better idea of can’t miss places than you can find on Yelp or TA. Glad to see Roostica on there, very close to where we’re spending our week. 36 more days!!

    How about adding a top 5 Happy Hour category?
