Private Parties

Finding a venue for your private party in Key West can be a challenge, especially if you need to entertain a large group. Many of the restaurants on the island are small with limited outdoor space. That is certainly not the case with El Meson de Pepe. We can accommodate smaller parties as well as large events for up to 300 guests. We specialize in “Friday Night” rehearsal dinners, full wedding receptions, private cocktail parties, and corporate outings. Treat your guests to the flavors of Cuba with unique buffet stations or smaller parties have the option of choosing a plated service.

Below are sample menus that should help you select the options most suited to your tastes. Please feel free to select options from any of the menus and we will provide a custom quote for your group. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our event coordinator.
