Chowhound Recs for Fl Keys

Thanks to the many of you who posted responses to my request for Key recommendations. We went to Mangrove Mama's on Sugarloaf Key - FABULOUS! Had mussels, clams, crab cakes and calamari with tempura asparagus for appetizers. All incredible and filling. Ordered Black and Bleu (blackened with bleu cheese melted on top) of catch of the day - also delicious. A bit of advice: they're busier than they have ever been, 7 days a week. Reservations a MUST no matter when you go. The mosquitoes are memorable - take bug spray! And, they'll be closed from Sept 5th until Oct 1 for a much needed break. Also got to El Siboney in Key West twice - great, basic Cuban food, very reasonable prices. Get there by 6:30 or you'll wait. Unfortunately Charlie cut our trip short so we didn't have a chance to visit some of your other recs but we'll definitely return. Thanks again!
