In July 1999, Pierre’s Restaurant was opened. Very much like the Moorings Village across the road, the restaurant’s exterior resembles the old colonial style residences found in West Africa, but its interior reflects different cultures from around the world.
Pierre’s Restaurant is a sparkling white two story plantation house with blue shutters encompassing 140 seats, with 90 indoors and 50 on an outside veranda facing the Florida Bay and breath-taking sunsets. The downstairs features The Green Flash Lounge with its beautiful mahogany bar, leather chesterfield sofas, comfortable beige banquettes and rattan chairs.
Both the lounge and the upstairs dining room feature dark planked wood floors, an eighteenth century Indian arcade, natural textured walls, and smooth teak tables on kilim rugs, surrounded by Moroccan, Indian, and African artifacts. Each entryway highlights a nineteenth century richly carved monastery door from India. Carved walls, Moroccan lamps, and banquettes strewn with colorful pillows create a romantic setting.
Located in the heart of Islamorada at mile marker 81.6, Pierre’s Restaurant is set amidst a glorious, palm-lined beach overlooking blue waters, with walking paths thru tropical flowers and a thatched forest. The restaurant shares a magnificent plantation-style house; Pierre’s offers fine dining on the second floor.
Guests may enjoy meals indoors, or on the veranda-accompanied by Islamorada’s spectacular sunsets and tropical views. The Green Flash Lounge serves guests on the main floor and the downstairs’ veranda.
Featuring French Fusion cuisine with World influences, Pierre’s was recently touted by Zagat’s as “one of the top all-around dining experiences” in the Florida Keys. At Pierre’s, spectacular dining and extraordinary décor merge in dramatic fashion:”This Islamorada stunner raises the bar for restaurants in the Sunshine State… atmosphere is everywhere in this beautiful, candlelit house where global treasures and magnificent wraparound verandas create and elegant but easy colonialist feel… the Eclectic haute cuisine with an old-world flare is phenomenal as well…”
