Good food, nice place, just not memorable.

We stopped here for a snack and a drink as we were wandering up and down the strip. The place was nice, casual. The food we got was all good. I just didn't get anything from the place that made it stand out for me. I mean if I was stumbling by I would stop in again, but I don't... read more

Ok food! Not great! Had to send food and bill back. The waiter did his best, but it couldn't help us leave with a sour taste (!) in our mouths .. Pelican is far from it's glory days ....

Stopped by for breakfast because they had inside dinning so my coworker and I could escape the SouthBeach heat. We were treated by an extremely friendly staff. We started off with American coffee which was really good. If you have been to South Florida good American coffee can be hard to find. I had the Capris Omelet. This was the... More

I was shocked when I saw the prices. Ranging from 20-60 dollars for a dinner. You´d expect something real good for that price, but the food wasn´t anything special. Just about the same as you get elsewhere. Service was also just regular, nothing special. The loud and noisy music made it difficult to talk over the table. In addition to... More

My husband and I had the Paella and OMG words can not describe how delicious it was. It was very pricey but we ate like queen's and king's. I highly recommend this place.

Food was okay, but like ALL Sobe spots, overpriced! Staff was nice and helpful. Right of the main strip.

Came here with friends on the last night in Miami. The music is fantastic and this is the only thing we liked and really enjoyed! The food was disappointing, paella's rice is clogging. Don't order classic paella here! Steaks were cooked from midtier meat and slightly burned... Will not recommend to my friends.

This was one of the prettiest presentations I've ever had for ceviche! The Swai fish used as the base had tiny bits of red pepper and spices sprinkled throughout. It had been placed on a leaf, with sliced avocado mirroring the veins of the leaf. A baked plantain patty and a wedge of lemon completed the lovely display. Fabulous! Stuart... More
