Setai was always one of our classic favorites. When the restaurant changed about 2 yrs ago, we didn't go back to try it. Big mistake! Fantastic, nuanced Mediterranean cusine, excellent service as usual, and of course, the ambiance. The private room is fantastic for group celebrations. They will put together special menus for your group. Could not have been more... More

Ate out every single night in the 7 nights we were in South Beach at all the top-recommended places from friends who are very familiar with the dining scene in the area. By far, The food, service at the Setai was simply the best. Value for value, this is the place.
