We were down in Miami for a competition for one of out group. We wanted to find some good Latin food, and we scored with this one! The service was great. They always stopped by to make sure everything was good. Super friendly. Live music was good. We received free wine in the beginning, an appetizer, and a shot at... More

Arriving at this property on a cold evening, we were cordially greeted and given a nice table in this dark romantic restaurant with Latin music playing and a good vibe. We were offered a small shot glass of red wine which was beyond rancid and oxidized. If they are going to give out wine, they should ensure the wine is... More

The restaurant itself was very nicely decorated with a great atmosphere. The waiter was very attentive and the food was amazing. We had the beef empanadas for starters and they come with a tray of about 4 different sauces to choose from, loved it. I then had the Picahna steak with fried yuca on the side. The portion size was... More

I read about this in TripAdvisor and it most definitely lived up to it's reputation. We of course did the obligatory walk on Ocean Avenue a couple of times, but when it came time for dinner, we wanted to get away from the craziness and relax a bit. This place fit the bill perfectly. They serve food from many countries... More

By far perhaps the best mussels I have ever had. The menu has a great selection of tantalizing tapas as well as entrees. Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection and delectable. This is a must go to restaurant. The service could not have been better, every staff member was incredible friendly, accommodating and welcoming. We felt like we were... More

I rarely eat south american cuisine, just because it's very hard for me to find a good one. However, upon reading reviews of this restaurant, we decided to try. And it didn't disappoint. It is a bit pricey, but the taste is excellent. They also have many choices for beers. We will come back to this restaurant again when we're... More
