I went with my sisters for a family lunch and really liked it. The children's menu was dissapointing. However, the set lunch menu was a great value and tasted great. This was 3 months ago, and I still think of the deserts.

This amazing restaurant is a great spot in the Miami area. The food is well thought out with many spices and flavored that stimulate your love for food. The service is great and the value is there. Although some say it is expensive, it is worth it!
