Ask any savvy local where to get the best sushi on the island and you'll undoubtedly be pointed to this bright and airy dining room with modern indoor waterfall literally steps from the Atlantic. Grab a seat at the sleek bar, where the back wall glows from purple to blue, or sit at the sushi bar and watch owner and head sushi chef Masa (albeit not the famous chef of the eponymous restaurants in New York and Las Vegas) prepare an impressive array of super fresh sashimi delicacies. Sushi lovers can't go wrong with the Ambrosia special: miso soup served with a sampler of 15 kinds of sashimi, seven pieces of sushi, and sushi rolls. There's an assortment of lightly fried tempura and teriyaki dishes and a killer bento box at lunch. Enjoy it all with a glass of premium sake or a cold glass of Sapporo beer.

The Santa Maria is a new location from the tiny spot at which Ambrosia started. I worried that they would loose their touch when transported to theis new, upscale, and frankly very beautiful location. They have not. Their food and service remain superior. Reservations are still a "must", so plan ahead for Key West's best sushi!
