Very good Cuban food

We really liked this restaurant. We had tapas before hand and then ate by the pool. This place is nice and quiet and the service was very good.

We are staying the the Hilton Bentley hotel where the restaurant is located on the quiet end of South Beach. We have had breakfast and lunch at the property and have enjoyed the food and service. The breakfast is the usual buffet setup with a continental option of which we partook. Fresh pasties, European style meat and cheese offerings along... More

This restaurant is in a hotel, so it doesn't feel quite authentic anything when you walk in through the doors. But inside, the lounge-y space is swank yet comfortable, while the latin music feels vibe-y and welcoming. The food was quite good. The ceviche was tasty and the octupus, not bad. My favorite tapa was the tomato avocado salad. They... More

Outside table overlooking lighted pool as night descended, peaceful and soothing after drive down Ocean. Service attentive with hint of smarm. Mojito blandito. Fish taco appetizer a clever presentation with flavor deficit. Pork belly entree hit the right Cuban notes, but gigantico, so sadly, no stomatico for dessert.

While attending the SoBe Wine and Food Festival we decided to dine at this restaurant. The appetizers were delicious, I especially liked the breadless Cuban sandwiches on a stick. The entrees were magnificent. Make sure you leave room for the Cuatro Leches in a tin can. Alfredo our waiter was incredible, his knowledge of the menu and attention to detail... More

I walked from my hotel on 20th and Collins to De Rodriguez for some cuban food that I was craving. The walk was nice but it was 20 blocks away and was offered many. many lobster, paella, and pasta dishes as I walked down Ocean. I finally found the restaurant in the Hilton and asked to be seated outside. I... More

Recommend eating appetizers as opposed to a full meal as there are so many wonderful appetizers to choose from. We loved the cerviche as well as the mini tacos. Wonderful service and lively atmosphere.

I often remember places for the food I had while visiting. During my visit to Miami, I stumbled across this place and I am so happy that I did. They had some sort of bread and cheese balls fried, no, nothing you think you have ever tried. These are heavenly. The food is magnificent. I didn't want to leave Miami.... More

Just let the chef pick for you, if you can't decide. The ox in a can was very interesting and very good, indeed.
