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...

Espanola Way is a vibey area with nice outdoor seating, and Cafe Nuvo is right in the middle of it all. The menu has a great mix of seafood and pasta options. We opted for the ahi tuna and the sea scallops to start - both were pretty tasty, but I thought the scallops were better. For mains I had... More
