Fun place good food

We sat outside at Larios and had a great view of all that goes on at South Beach. There was music playing and great energy at this place. The food was authentic Cuban and was very good. Service was also good.

We decided to try this restaurant while walking up and down the strip deciding what to eat. It was an amazing choice! The sangria was great and the food was amazing. I had the vaca frita de pollo and the flavor just exploded in your mouth!! Our waiter was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. I would highly recommend... More

My hubby and I rode over to South Beach for the day and walked up and down Ocean Drive. We knew we were looking for 2 things. A good mojito and a good real Cuban sandwich. As we walked by Larios the first time a gentleman standing at the front told us it was the best Cuban food. We said... More

As with lots of places on Ocean Drive the people watching is first class. The food is definitely a notch above most places on the drive and they are happy to ensure that you have a leisurely meal and do not seem to feel the need to hassle you to eat there! (Anywhere that does is probably best avoided in... More

This is Gloria Estefan's Cuban restaurant on South Beach. There's nonstop Cuban trivia on a screen, which we ignored, but the food. wow. Don't miss the avocado salad. It's like guacamole but it isn't. Just try it. There's a black bean hummus that pretty much redefines hummus - great spicing and served with plantain chips. Drinks were excellent too. Frozen...

Lario's on the Beach has an authentic Cuban flavor in all their plates. The Mojitos are one of the best I have tasted in many restaurants, the service an the atmosphere is fantastic. The live entertainment makes Lario's one of my favorite restaurants to visit

The service was good and its classier than many places on Ocean Drive but the food was just good. We were expecting more flavor, especially for the price. It was very expensive as most places were.

Don't go to South Beach without eating a leisure lunch at a sidewalk cafe on Ocean Dr. Have a drink, take your time, watch the crowds and exotic cars go by. The Cuban restaurant was well prepared, fresh and the service was good. Many restaurants are aggressive pushing you to take a seat, Larios is professional about it and we... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by another restaurant owner on Ocean Drive. What a great find! We asked to sit inside despite the fact we were still in flops and shorts and they graciously accommodated us.We ordered a carafe of their mango sangria to get started with some water. I am not a fan of sangria usually, but i... More
