We had a very late (for us) dinner here, but 10:30 is early for South Beach. The food was good and service too. Good value for this area.

I had been pretty disappointed with Miami so far but stopped in here for a light luch and was so happy. Had great service and food. Staff were really accomodating without harassing you to come in as you walk down the street like some of the others on the strip.

Breakfast was included with our room, so we stuck with that menu. The eggs, bacon, omelettes, pancakes and eggs Benedict were all tastey. The expresso was also good.

The best mojitos ever. Awesome sandwiches, try the grouper or the Cuban. Snapper ceviche with red onion and green apple, could have eaten more of that. And the view from the terrace, priceless.

Had a lovely meal this evening. Drinks buy one get two up to 7pm! Special tonight was large T-bone steak mash and veg. Excellent value. Staff were friendly. We even got a complimentary shot of sex on the beach after paying check. Excellent value for money in the heart of a Miami beach
