Every time I go to Miami i eat here. The rosemary chicken and the salmon are great choices. The place is very small so don't be fooled by the empty seating in Mojitos... It is NOT part of NUVO. Just make sure you carve some time out for this restaurant. You wont regret it...

How long was the wait for service and food? From the time we got our first glass of water to the appetizer served, we saw three different parties sat down on the table next to us and walked out. None of them got even a glass of water! I wonder how much business they lose per day from that. Most... More

On my first night in Miami Beach, we came across "La Espanola Way" and among all the restaurants on both sides was Cafe Nuvo. Delicious food, beautiful decor and wonderful atmosphere! The service was excellent...our server made sure that we were well taken care of. He delivered fresh french baguettes with olive oil for dipping. We had seafood and pasta.... More

Just came from dinner there. It's in La Española Way, a must place in South Beach Miami. There are quite a few restaurants there. This was the first time we tried this one and if you are in the seafood and pasta/risotto arena you will like it. Lobster Risotto was great as the Meditarranean Linguini. Enjoy )))

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and loved it! We made a reservation for 8pm on a Sunday (memorial day weekend) and were seated right away. Our waiter was quite nice and gave us a run down of the specials. Fresh french baguettes were brought with oil for dipping. We started with the fried calamari, it was... More

We were somewhat roped in from a lady on the street working for the restaurant. We had hungry kids and she said " come on in here we have a kids menu" when you are a parent with hungry screaming kids you'll do anything to satisfy them. We go in and find outrageously priced food. I would not have chosen... More

Fairly large outdoor seating area. We chose to sit inside because it was quite warm. Dining room was very small & unfortunately a large party with many children including crying toddlers were seated after us. Not the restaurants fault that the parents didn't have the sense to take the kids out. That being said, the food was very good. Really... More
