If you are looking for a classic Miami restaurant with fantastic food and wonderful entertainment, this is your place! Everyone gets really into the live music and dancing and the entire experience had a very 'Miami flair' to it. Not to mention, the food was out of this world! A group of us split about a half dozen different entrees... More

Best way to experience a multitude of tapas. We ordered the mix of 7 tapas and couldn't have been happier. I believe they also offer happy hours on most weekdays. Highly recommend!

We googled latin food spots on the way to south beach. We decided to try this spot because they had tostones options. The new location is 841 not the 600 block. It's decorated nicely and the wait staff was friendly. We started with drinks, sangria and agua de florero. The sangria was great!! I had 2. :-) the florero was... More

After swimming all afternoon at the Miami Beach. We were searching for some good food off the tourist traps next to the beach. And glad we found here. We had the sangria which was yummy. And tried their 7 different tapas. Had the fried chicken, grilled steak, calamari, garlic shrimp, fried artichoke and fried cheesesticks and all was delicious and... More

I'm always a sucker for black beans, rice, plantains and beef. I’ve never had a bad plate with those four items and this place did not disappoint. Having said that, there are plenty of other restaurants in Miami where you can get the same thing for a little less.

Cool place, nicely decorated. We sat at the bar, since tables were all booked.We were served by the bartender, in a very nice, friendly way. We start with a 6 shots of ceviche, three Colombian and three Peruvian, paired with little cups of different sauces. The presentation is nice and the taste was good. I had a churrasco entree and...

Delicious South American food - the pollo saltido was delicious as was my wife's crab cake. The fresh fruit/vegetable drinks (no sugar no water) were outstanding on a hot summer afternoon (think mango pineapple spinach). Probably a hot spot at night given its location - parking can be challenging but it's worth it

This place was awesome- absolutely delicious food in a quaint little restaurant close to ocean drive. We chose very typical south american delicacies which were displayed on the menu based on country. The food was excellently presented. An extra plus was the drinks offered which are usually available only in their home countries-nice touch. Highly recommended and quite appropriate being... More
