Not only is the art beautiful the food comes out that way as well. Try & be there for the sunset as it is one of the most beautiful. If you are sitting outside the waves crashing are there to a sound to the romance of the setting.

I had read many of the reviews that were not very positive about this restaurant but we decided to try anyways as we were staying at the Bacara. We thought it was great. Staff was wonderful, food very good and the view was amazing.

The oysters were very good with an exceptional Meyer lemon, scallion and red peppercorn mignonette, and we particularly appreciated the server going to extraordinary effort to locate horseradish for us. The Beet Risotto was excellent, the Bone-in Short Rib was very good. The Shrimp and Corn Mac & Cheese was not as good. Beautiful view of the ocean from the... More

Treated like we owned the place. Fantastic service and they gave us a great seat knowing it was our anniversary. Also offered us a tour of their 12,000 bottle wine cellar. I had a tasty but filling short rib, and my wife had the flank steak.

Great service with amazing starters and main courses. Wine selection is more than adequate only problem was a dessert the first night was not up to standards but the second night was perfect.

Miro did not disappoint. The décor was derived from Juan Miro's paintings and was colorful and fun. The food was local and delicious. Innovative dishes. I had lobster tail which was delicious, not dry as in most restaurants. You can be seated either out on the patio or inside, both with ocean view. Terrific experience.
