We tasted delicious food for lunch. Service was quick and friendly. The atmosphere is one up from a diner. Comfortable and clean. The food. The food. My steak was beautifully seasoned, and the onions and tomatoes made a great garnish. The fish sew was sublime. Huge chunky pieces of seafood in a fabulous broth!!

This is my third time to South Beach and this time was all about the Sangria. This place had the best...loved it. The place seems family owned and delicious. Worth every dime, even though the prices are VERY reasonable for South Beach. The waiter was genuine and advised my friend and I to share a plate, as the serving was... More

This place is simple and not too fancy but who cares, you are here for the food! I've eaten here twice and in both occasions my friends and I were very happy with what we ordered. My favorite is the parillada de mariscos, very simple yet delicious, which means the fish is fresh and well cooked. Nice service, fast and... More

Visited Chalan with friends upon recommendation. We had a really good and genuin experience both food and athmosphere-wise, which stood in bright contrast to many of the tourist traps in South Beach.

Small place, very busy and yet the staff was still helpful and friendly!! I had some sort of ceviche (waitress picked which one). The BEST I have ever eaten! We also had a couple other dishes recommended by the waitress (can't remember what they were) and both were GREAT! I would eat there weekly if I lived there closer!!

My boyfriend and I been there twice or three times during the Holydays. If you are close to that place and looking for a good place to fill you up, I strongly suggest you to try that restaurant. Good food, great service, everything was perfect !If you like fried calamari, this is the place and at reasonable prices too !... More

We were just there to have dinner. We had the sea fruit plate for two and it was really awesome. It was a huge plate and we couldn't manage to eat all. The price was amazingly low, only $24. The server were very nice and kind. This is the complete opposite of the tourist traps in ocean drive!

The food or the service, I am not sure which impressed me the most. A very crowded Friday night. 40 min wait time. It had good reviews and we decided to stay and wait. Wise decision. We got in to a nice table at the time they promise. The waiter was busy so the manager came over to explain the... More
