Tucked away on the sleepy island of Grassy Key is a gourmand's treasure. In operation for more than 10 years at Rainbow Bend Resort, the Hideaway Cafe has always maintained a reputation for excellence in serving top-notch cuisine and is one of the few places that local residents can feel they are truly "getting away from it all."
Hideaway Cafe is one of the most sought-after places for a romantic dinner with a special someone. It is a place that offers an extensive choice or great food and fine wines, personalized service and attention to detail.
Staff greet its guests like they are already part of the family, while the chef creates delicious magic, with new combinations of ingredients, keeping only the best.
Enjoy a starter plate of warm French bread, one of the escargot selections or French Onion soup, washed down with an excellent glass of wine. There is a wine list of a first-class caliber, so you are sure to find one to your liking.
The variety and scope of the menu includes: Lobster & Seafood, Crepes, Roasted Whole Duck, Blackened Shrimp and plentiful fresh local seafood. There is a selection here to please everyone from the traditional Rack of Lamb, Grouper Francaise and Filet Medallions to something from a different continent such as Seafood Crepes and Shrimp Scampi. The menu ranges from soups, appetizers, seafood, aged beef and pasta plus the daily special.
Entrees may be sauteed in wine and flavored with fresh herbs or stuffed with tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, or prosciutto. There is a dessert selection featuring a variety that would do a much larger, sophisticated restaurant proud. Bananas Foster is a highly recommended dessert.
The chef is a genius at combining flavors which complement and enhance each other, and has mastered the art of orchestrating great meals.
