Our Story

Our name, Bel Mare, means ‘beautiful sea’ in Italian, and here in Key West we are surrounded by just that. Our passionate culinary team seeks to bring the two unique cultures together and does so by using only fresh, elite ingredients. Here, we specialize in homemade pastas with from-scratch sauces and bringing Key West’s own seafood to you in an unrivaled dining experience. We don’t stop there as we create a menu full of delicious appetizers and salads, delectable desserts, and absolutely amazing entrees!

In addition to the fantastic food, we boast dessert wines, after dinner drinks, and an extensive Italian wine menu that will leave even the pickiest wine drinker satisfied. However, it’s the craft cocktail program that is full of love for flavors, flora, fermentation, and firewaters.  It’s beverage program that even freestanding bars salivate over; unique, hard to procure whiskeys, rums, tequilas, gins, absinthes and the like will make your evening eventful!

While the food and beverages are enough to create lasting memories, it’s the dining room on the second story that elevates you and your experience over the historic Key West Bight and A&B Marina. Your views, much like the cafes and bistros of coastal Italy are suspended over the gorgeous water, full of sea life, awe-inspiring yachts, sailing vessels, and views of a bustling boardwalk. Here in Key West, Bel Mare doesn’t just mean beautiful sea, but beautiful memories.
