The Dining Room

Think of our Florida Keys restaurant, The Dining Room, as paradise for your palate.

Experience our Florida Keys restaurant's candlelit ambiance indoors, or opt for a table on our breezy terrace overlooking the beach. The Dining Room at Little Palm Island is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner for resort guests and off-island visitors.  We also offer an incredible Sunday Brunch each week, monthly Full Moon Dinners, and Wine Maker Events. Off-island guests are welcome to join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch. Reservations and proper attire are required.  We welcome young adults age 18 and older. Our Executive Chef and his culinary team will be focusing on classic and modernist cooking techniques, committed emphasis on natural flavors and using the freshest possible ingredients. Preparation is simplified, dishes have inventive pairings and rely on the inspiration from the surrounding waters and the Caribbean region.

About The Dining Room

Some of the world's finest cuisine can be experienced in the Palm Island resort’s Dining Room. Lead by our Executive Chef and his culinary team, we are proud to have been recently recognized as the Best Hotel Dining in Florida and Number Three in the US by Zagat.

Zagat rated The Dining Room "extraordinary to perfection" in every category - Food, Decor and Service. They said "Lover's laud this exquisite oasis at a private island resort off Little Torch Key as a piece of absolute paradise, voting it Top Décor in the Keys; words cannot do justice either to the French-Pan-Latin fare."  "The gracious staff and marvelous setting make it well worth the cost."
