Beautiful place

Good food, even though this is not the highlight of this particular restaurant. The decoration is fabulous, the music is great. Turns into a club late at night. Found a Portuguese employee with whom we spent the whole dinner talking and exchanging experiences. Spent a really great time there.

Having heard that Larios was a respectable Cuban joint backed by the uber-powerful Estefan family, I was eager to try this place on a recent Saturday night in sexy, if not sleazy, South Beach. I booked a 9PM reservation for 4 people and was looking forward to an unhurried, outdoor meal, sipping on tropical drinks, nibbling on tasty Cuban food,... More

We accidentally found ourselves at Larios and tried their ropa vieja. Juicy, FLAVORful, succulent meat was a beautiful explosion in our mouths. Paired with banana chips and mojo, this was an excellent surprise. We've eaten Cuban food many times, and didn't know what to expect with Larios being a "celebrity" restaurant.. everything from food to service to decor was excellent!

My husband and I were walking around and decided to stop in for a quick bite. The hostess looked distracted and after she sat is we were there for a while and no one came to take our drink order. Needless to say we did not stay to eat.

We appetizered out here 4 apps one the combo and split them everyone enjoyed them. I really didn't like the cod fish croquettes but no one else complained. The Guava ribs were a big hit!!

My top goal in my visit to South Beach was to find some authentic Cuban cuisine. Success! The ropa vieja was so very succulent, so flavorful, so exquisite... I truly hated to swallow each bite, as that left my mouth empty, awaiting the next bite. Truly. The plaintains were fabulous, too! They could have been served as a simple dessert.... More

Great food and very attentive wait staff. Their slow roasted pulled pork is phenomenal! Definitely a good choice if you're in South Beach!

In Miami Beach from Seattle for a business conference...wanted authentic Cuban food, and found Larios! Am I glad I did!!! It's located on Ocean Ave in South Beach, and between the food, the atmosphere, and the location, it could not have been a better choice. Get the fried plantains! They come with an awesome garlic butter! Great choices for drinks,... More

Haven't been in over 10 years and I was thrilled that it was still the same. Excellent fresh seafood, great authentic flavors, and friendly and attentive service. Great portions too. It's nice when you can eat outside. Highly recommend!
