Excellent dinner on the quiet end of Ocean Drive. Great wait staff, especially Chris. Eggs with pesto for dinner. Who knew? You get the Ocean Drive vibe with aqua and cobalt lights....and very good food to top it off - n8tiveDC

Walking past this gem we were amused by the name and thought why not. After a few drinks and conversation with our wonderful server Chris we'd definitely recommend this place for travelers.

My friend, her 3 young kids, my daughter and myself had dinner here on Sunday, August 17, 2014. We had never been there before and did not know what to expect but we decided to try it anyway. It wasn't actually pretty quiet for a Sunday night on South Beach. We chose to sit inside. The restaurant is very pretty... More

We stayed in the area a week, and went to the front porch nearly every day for breakfast. Very good service from Elisabeth on several days. Very good food, good service, At a very good price. Will go back if in the area again.

Brunch and drinks were fantastic! I got the FP Style Migas and it was one of the best brunches that I've ever had. Would definitely return!

We had breakfast here before leaving on our cruise out of Miami and it was amazing! The location is great and the service was very good. The food was out of this world. The two things that stood out to me were the breakfast pizza and the french toast. So yummy! I would most definitely visit here again, especially for... More

I visited the restaurant on 8/18 for breakfast with a friend of mine and we were very pleased. The waiters were friendly and attentive. We both ordered the Beach Breakfast Deluxe. I was very happy that turkey bacon was an option. When the food came out, I was surprised by the nice size portions. I also liked that the cheese... More

We had dinner here and the food was delicious! I ordered the Fish and Chips, the batter was light, the fish was flaky, and very well seasoned. My husband ordered the Southern fried chicken sandwich and he had no complaints. Our friends ordered the same item, which was the chicken breast with the Pico de Gallo, they too loved their... More

We've been here today with my wife and my son. First of all you need to accept some waiting time on a Sunday especially if you want to sit outside. This wasn't a big deal as we just had to wait 10 min. More important was the fact that we had to wait 25 mins at least for toast, chocolate... More

I visited during vacation for breakfast a few days ago and it was great! Absolutely loved the atmosphere as well. I wish I would've discovered it at the start of my trip
