Still the same quality; The Grand CaféYear after year we’re going to the Grand for dinner or lunch. The food is really good, the wine is delicious, and the desserts… well, you have to try it yourself. The (international) staff are always very friendly and polite. The ambience hasn't changed over the years, and that’s good. We like it as it is. There is something else that didn’t change; the discount coupons. You’ll find the coupons at some B&B’s and at the visitor centre. When you have a entrée during dinner, you’ll get a free bottle of wine. They offer three wines you can choose from. If you want to have a wine off of the wine list, you’ll get a 50% discount. If you have lunch at The Grand you’ll get a free glass of wine. Everytime we were greeted quickly by a friendly hostess and shown to a table. We prefer a table on the large front deck looking out on to Duval St. For me the perfect spot at The Grand. Enjoying the food, the atmosphere and watch the people pass by. We had lunch and several dinners at The Grand. What did we eat? Dinner: As an appetizer I had the Carpaccio of beef tenderloin with shaved parmigiano and white truffle. It was delicious! Really, this one you have to try!Entrée: Sautéed snapper with lemon brown butter and seasonal vegetable and creamed potatoes. In one word: fantastic! One evening we were very late, so we weren’t very hungry. We decided to have some appetizers. This is what we had:I had the Smoked Norwegian Salmon with capers, red union, sour cream and toast points. I enjoyed this so much. Good food and wine. What more do you need?My spouse had the Jumbo lumb crab cakes with Key lime mustard. It’s getting boring, but this was also very good! At another evening we had for dinner:Caprese Salad with buffalo mozzarella, roma tomato, basil, and balsamico. Just delicious!I had again the Carpaccio (I just love it) and the Wild Mushroom Fettuccini tossed with spinach, garlic and roma tomato white wine sauce. Everything was presented well and tasted great. My mouth waters just thinking about the tasteful food. I immediately get hungry…
Now you’re wonder if I haven’t any negative points about the Grand! Well, I just can’t find anything what was bothering me. I can highly recommend The Grand. They have a tasty menu, feeling for good ingredients, great ambience, and a friendly staff. You won't be disappointed!

Here's a tip for you: at the visitor center in Key West (I don't know the name, but if you enter Key West and through the traffic lights to the right, it is on the left side), you can take coupons for a free dessert here (and they have good ones) or a free frozen cocktail. You'll find the coupons on the front desk of the visitor center.
