Birthday Meal

The choices of menu awesome, and the staff are very attentive. They even gave me a fabulous dessert, creme brulee, to die for. Delicious, you have to try the octopus, so devine.

I had the encrusted Mahi Mahi special and it was to die for. Very good meal and the service was spot on as well. We sat outside and people watched over candle light. They had a live band playing on a Saturday night which was a nice touch too. It got a bit breasy being right there off the water... More

Location excellent ideal for people watching on Ocean Drive. Very welcoming. Great menu, with large portions. I chose the jumbo crab cake and the macadamia crusted snapper which were both delicious and the crime brûlée was fantastic (and huge!). My only gripe is that they were so efficient I felt a bit rushed! I had barely enough time to enjoy... More

This was recommended by the gentleman at The Savoy where we were staying and so glad we did. Table for 4 on the upper level of the boardwalk - a bit cosy but worked just fine. Our waiter was well versed on the menu and wine list and his service was impeccable! Wish I could remember his name :(. Portions... More

This was our last diner in Miami beach. Great! Excellent food (red snapper, lobster tails, sea food risotto), great service and nice live music.

I recently visited here on a trip to Miami Beach. It was directly next door to our hotel, which was convenient. It was on a very busy corner of Ocean Drive and it was quite a spectacle to watch the passer-by (both vehicular and pedestrian). The menu was mostly seafood, and I ordered the salmon. It took quite a long... More

We went to this restaurant recommended by the Concierge of our Hotel. It’s very well located with a very nice decoration. The service is also very good. We were “afraid”, because it was full, but everything went very well. The wine list it’s Ok and all the food was very good. A place to recommend and visit again.

We know this place now since four years, in all these years it serves finest food, great cocktails, has a very friendly and attentive staff and nice music. If you look for quality and athmosphere, don't look further....

This was a very nice restaurant. The food and service was spectacular. We sat outside and it was very nice...a little noisy from the traffic though. We highly recommend this spot. We hated we didn't go back before we left.
