An awkward experience
My experience at the Better Than Sex restaurant was awkward. We went in and got seated immediately, but my sister and girlfriend decided to use the bathroom right away. I was busy noting the erotic art work on the wall when our waitress came over to get drink orders. Let me put it to you this way: the typical clientele are couples in their forties, looking to rekindle the flame they captured many moons ago. It was clear to me that the waitress suspected that I was, perhaps, 'hired help,' if you know what I mean. Can you blame her? A husband and wife with me--a strapping, young lad--at a restaurant so saturated in sex that I imagine the seats would yield interesting results, if you analyzed them under a black light. She took our orders with a faint grin on her face; no doubt imagining me wearing my mother as a ski mask. When it came time for me to order a beverage, I asked her if they had any bourbon (to wash away the anxiety, you see). She said no, and suggested that I order a glass of wine with a sugary glaze (cum) on the rim. Just to get her away from our table, I agreed. The minutes ticked away and both my sister and girlfriend were nowhere to be seen. Other couples kept glancing over at our table, no doubt wondering if I was a bang-boy hired to rekindle the spark in a marriage. I averted my eyes and tried to make small talk. "How about that weather" I asked. "It's really hot," they affirmed, as the waitress came over with a couple of bukkaked (sp) wine glasses. As she was placing the glasses on the table, my girlfriend and sister returned from the bathroom. I swear I registered disappointment in the waitress' eyes, when she figured out that she wasn't serving a couple of swingers with a hired dong.
Anyway, the dessert was tasty, but I personally felt it was a tad overrated.
I feel a restaurant that bills itself as a dessert and cocktail restaurant would have more, well, desserts and cocktails, or at least a menu that had a seasonal rotation. The dessert that I got — the Fork-You Fondue, which were cinnamon pound cake donut holes served with "Liquid Vanilla Cheesecake Fondue" — was good, but I felt like it could have been more exciting. The waitress was a little rude to my boyfriend, his sister, and I. We may all look young, but that doesn't mean you should offer your virgin drink menu with a sneer.
Originally located in the Bahama Village - I've heard that the city was a little embarrassed with this place to begin with. Since, it's proven itself to be a KW staple. Daring in name, yes, but also with some scrumptious baked goods and sweet inspired cocktails.
This IS Key West - free spirited and open. If you like dessert, you should absolutely give this place a try.
