Great food

Six of us went there for dinner last evening, four adults two children. We were disappointed with the service but felt the food was very good. Our waitress just didn't seem to be happy to be there and serving us, which put a bit of a damper on the whole evening. Two people had the sea bass which... read more

Three couples from the St. Regis Hotel Bal Harbour decided to share a cab to Fifi's Place. It has tanks of fresh stone crabs and fish by the front door. The local couple seated at the table next to us were regulars at this restaurant. He was a free-diving spear fisherman and underwater photographer and he praised the freshness of... More

we visit Miami every February and typically stay between 30th & 40th and Collins so traveling up to 69th and Collins for Fifi's was a journey but well worth it! Excellent stone crab and fresh fish (I was in the mood for pasta and had the lobster ravioli which was delicious). Excellent value compared to some of the overpriced and... More

Fifi's is located in mid-to-north beach, far from the action of South Beach. It's worth the trip. The restaurant is kind of funky, with an island vibe. It's not slick, urban or classy--just idiosyncratic and FUN. Most of all, after many visits, I can report that the food is reliably excellent. Especially recommended is the tempura shrimp appetizer, the tuna... More

We ate dinner her based on a recommendation from the Hotel concierge. Fifi's specializes in seafood and also has stone crabs. We had jumbo stone crabs as an appetizer, royal ceviche as another appetizer, and shared paradillada for our main. The stone crabs were good but pricey ($55) and the paradillada was very good and chock full of seafood. Overall,... More

I was invited by a Cuban friend who wanted to show off. And he did. I had Hog Snapper, a fish you can only catch by spear fishing. Best fish I had for months. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and a good selection of very fresh seafood.

If you see it from outside you will probably not enter but take a chance and you will be pleasantly rewarded. Located right on Collins Ave. in North Miami Beach this quaint restaurant is great in Fish and seafood. From choosing the lobster or fish you would desire and having it cooked how you please to ordering Paella, Oysters and... More

I came to this place on a Sunday at 1:30 for lunch. And we had and very very good Paella. It was supposed to be for two people but it was actually perfect for 4, plus 2 appetizers. We had some white wine and it was good enough. I also really liked that it was not a noisy place at... More

WOW! I have only one word to describe this fantastic place: EXCELENT I highly recommend it! As i was strolling with a friend on Ocean Drive deciding to eat something different for breakfast, I was very politely greeted with a big smile by Jorge, the Manager.
