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

I have not been at Pelican Cafe for years, probably like 8, and last weekend I stayed with my wife at South Beach, and had dinner there. It is still a great place! They make nice tasty martinis, appetizers, fish is great, and the best the dessert list. Service is high quality. Nice atmosphere. I recommend the terrace tables instead... More

Great Stakes, excellent service! Host and waiters very attentive. We got a 20% off just because we´re Brazilians. That´s how to win a costumer!

We stopped in for a drink and to watch the NBA finals on a Sunday night. The bartendar provided great service. I had a great pina colada at $16.00 and the beers were $8.00 each. Three drinks and $45.00 later, we left.
