KEY WEST - LATITUDES, the RESTAURANT

Spring Break this year was an adventure 
to the Florida Keys & Key West!
FUN FACT - The island of Key West was first purchased by John W. Simonton in 1822 from Juan Pablo Salas who had acquired it as a Spanish Land Grant in 1815.  Key West became a US Territory in 1828. 
Latitudes is located on the private island of Sunset Key.  You must go on line to make a reservation and your reservation is actually your launch time, a 10-minute ride to the island on Latitudes' personal boat. You meet your boat at the Westin Marina next to Mallory Square.

This was our last night in Key West.
The sunset (7:30) reservation time slot was booked,
but making an earlier reservation turned out to be perfect.
After our meal, we strolled out onto the dock
and had the dock and glorious sunset to ourselves. 
The restaurant was Beautiful.
Sitting on a private island, arriving by boat and being greeted warmly was memorable.  The views were tremendous, the food was fantastic (no conch fritters here), and the service was impeccable. 
The Lobster Bisque -- OOO La La!
Considering the whole experience,
it was quite reasonably priced. 
Gorgeous setting on a true tropical paradise! 

The fish were jumping everywhere -
notice the splash that I caught!! 

Again-
Day is Done, Gone the Sun . . . . 
Our ride back to Key West.
A memorable last evening made perfect by fabulous food and a breathtaking sunset.
(Thank you Sister for this recommendation!!)
