A Review of Better Than Sex, a Restaurant in Key West, Florida

Updated on March 19, 2019

What Is Better Than Sex?

What is Better Than Sex? It is a dessert restaurant located in Key West, Florida. The restaurant is currently expanding to open a new location in Orlando, Florida. This restaurant serves only two things: beverages and desserts. All of the desserts are described using mildly sexual language. Due to this, the restaurant is considered PG-13 rated. While they do encourage an adult atmosphere, they also ban yelling, cursing, and all intoxicated behavior.

Atmosphere and Decor

So far, I have been to Better Than Sex twice. Both times I've walked away extremely satisfied with both the service and the taste of everything I had. The atmosphere is very comfortable with low lighting in order to encourage a feeling of privacy. The restaurant is nicely decorated without the decorations being too distracting. I liked how the restaurant was designed to keep the main focus on the food and drinks.

In order to give you an overall feel of the restaurant, I have included some photos, below. The entire place is nicely decorated—including the bathroom, as you can see.

The menu is on an iPad that is delivered to each table. There are no cardboard menus, laminated paper, or brochures. Instead, every two guests receive one iPad that allows them to browse through the different alcohols, virgin drinks, and desserts.

My Visit

During both of my visits, I was accompanied by three family members, which allowed me the chance to sample multiple desserts and drinks. Between my two visits, therefore, I was able to get a taste of a good portion of the menu. One of the things I really love about the food is that everything is made from scratch to order. Not a single item is made from a mix or pre-made. I have to say my personal favorite was "The Fever." This dessert was described in this way:

Smooth. Soft. Supple. A warm airy chocolate cake like brownie full of body that's oozing a subtle chocolate pudding underneath. Rubbing up against cool with vanilla bean balls.

— "The Fever," Better Than Sex

The Fever

The description definitely makes The Fever sound sensual and sexual with this beautifully with in description. Personally, I simply enjoying an amazing tasting soft and moist chocolate cake like brownie with two scoops of delicious vanilla ice cream. I love the chocolate pudding fudge mix that was underneath the brownie cake. The combination of the three different elements blended together beautifully in my mouth and taste it wonderfully. It is in my mind one of the best items on their menu.

Peanut Butter Perversion

The menu describes the Peanut Butter Perversion as: "peanut butter mousse pie floating on top of a chocolate chip cookie dough crust. Salted chocolate bark. Port Wine Sauce."

This is an absolute must have for all peanut butter lovers, however be warned while the taste is amazing it is not for those who desire their dessert to be sweet. I personally found it lacking in the sweetness department, however a quick drizzle of some of the chocolate pudding sauce from the Fever on top of this dessert quickly solved the problem. I do wish the crust had been a bit thicker, but overall with a bit of chocolate sauce I would call it a win!

Banana Bazooka

The Banana Bazooka is described as: "Layer crepe-like tortilla torte. Big banging banana hunks. Tickle of Caramel. Tease of cinnamon. Callebaut white chocolate sour cream ganache. Brown sugar icing. Health bar crunch."

I am not a banana fan normally, but even I have to say this tasted pretty good. The flavors of the Banana Bazooka were well balance and played out nicely together and separately. This is also not a very sweet dessert instead it is more on the savory side.


The drink option range from alcohol to virgin beverages all the way to a nice glass of milk. Almost all of the drinks come in large glasses that are dipped in one of three types of chocolate or other toppings, popular choices include white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or caramel. My personal choice was just a normal plan glass of milk as what goes better with some rich chocolate cake that a nice glass of milk. However, my fellow dinners were much more adventurous so here are some snap shots of their beverages.

Has an almost cotton candy like flavor. The white chocolate drizzle was hardened and unfortunately this made it difficult to taste it alongside the drink.

I highly suggest that you make a reservation using the website before going to the restaurant as they only have 15 tables in the main dining room. The small number of tables really gives the restaurant a nice cozy feel up to it, but it also makes it difficult to get a table for walk-ins especially because the restaurant only opens at 6 p.m. I actually ended up having to go a day later than I wanted because reservations filled up too quickly. I would recommend booking your reservation at least a full 24 hours before you actually plan to go. That said if you're walking by and you see it I would definitely say go ahead and try your luck as they might have an empty table with your name on it.
