Food with good presentation and ordinary taste. Waiters dont take care very well of the space. Cigar smoke from other table made my lunch unpleasant. An 18% gratuity is already included when you check.

I really liked the food, expensive, but delicious. I tried the ceviche and the lobster tagliatelle and enjoyed the dinner with some friends and my boyfriend. However, the service was very very poor. Waiters were rude and unfriendly when they were asked for recommendations and for more bread, etc. We didn't see any smile on the face of our waiter... More

This is a touristy area which generally means few repeat customers so one is not surprised on being disappointed. We weren't disappointed. The quality of the food we ordered was very good. We shared a bottle of New Zealand sauvignon blanc at $46, which is not unreasonable. Two apps, a caesar and some ceviche - both a $13 and a... More

Out for a stroll on a beautiful evening along Espanola Way in South Beach and stopped at Nuvo for a late night dinner. Saw they were part of Mojitos Lounge and decided the pairing of a tall Mojito and some seafood would fit the bill. The restaurant spills out onto the sidewalk amidst the quaint evening lights and tropical plants... More

Came here twice, once for mojitos and apps and came back for lunch because it was so tastey. It's located right in the middle of Espanola way, great for people watching, we sat outside and inside. The mojitos were definitely some of the best I've had and I am a mojito snob, I ordered the tuna ceviche as an app...amazing... More

We had dinner here after a long first day in Miami Beach. Food was ok but certainly not memorable. A good location for eating outside, but there are better options for the same or similar cost.

Positioned well for people watching and the food we had was tasty but waiter obviously realised we were visitors to the area and really pushed the special of the day.

This restaurant sits in the middle of Espanola Way, a pedestrian-friendly street between the bustle of South Beach and an interesting Art Deco residential area. So, we enjoyed some very good mojitos while people-watching and then came back for a tasty late lunch of pasta and salad.

Quite pricy but asked to see the specials menu which consisted of two starters, two pasta and two glasses of wine. The lobster bisque was amazing! Had a mohito which was a special for happy hour and was divine! Tip included then they leave a space for you to add a tip!! Great location and good service
