Café Nuvo Seafood and Pasta is influenced, they told us, by Spanish, French, and Italian cuisines for a Mediterranean feel. We started with a Mixed Ceviche that was a tray of 4 ceviche recipes. They were all delicious, and we devoured them. My husband ate grouper and loved it. I had the Peruvian Corvina and raved about it. This meal... More

The restaurants along Ocean Drive and Lincoln rd often disappoint but getting away from those locations you can find superior food. Our meal here was first class.

My headline says it all...many would say that streets like "Espanola Way" which is full of restaurants of all types and cuisines is a tourist trap. I am inclined to agree from a cost perspective but in their defence, I have to say that from a food perspective, it was actually pretty good. The challenge for any of these establishments... More

Food was excellent!! A bit overpriced but not terrible. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Décor was warm and inviting. Only real issue was that the fire alarm kept going off which made our dinner unenjoayable. Too bad.

This restaurant is located along Espanola Way in South Beach. The restaurant's character is charming with its Mediterranean design. I had the grouper which was attractively presented and was delicious. There is plenty of tables outside on the street as well as inside. The wait staff was attentive and cordial. I recommend this restaurant for couples looking for a romantic... More

When we arrived at 7:00 the place was empty and people were guiding us in but by 9:00 it was full. Very good ceviche and calamari as appetizers, the only disappointment was the wine lovers plate which had some indifferent meats and cheeses. Dinner was very good both for those who had seafood and those who had steaks.

We found Nuvo on our first night in Miami, its in a busy restaurant area, Espanola Way but we were early and very few folks had sat down to dinner yet so service was excellent without feeling rushed, as was the food, we took advantage of their early bird offer of 2 starters, 2 pasta dishes and 2 glasses of...
