A must, don't miss this gem.

Don't pull in and pull out like we almost did. This place is nice and clean but doesn't have a lot of curb appeal. The food is fantastic, and the reason it is so good is because Chef Jimmy is not only well-trained and talented, he cares about the quality of the product. I almost never buy... read more

After a morning of kayaking in nearby Ocela State Park, we came here for lunch. The owner Jimmy greeted us warmly and told us about the specials. He was so very nice and friendly, you wanted to like his cooking. I had the fish tacos, they were delicious with a wonderful cilantro sauce on the side, a great tasting cole... More

The owner/chef could not be nicer ! We talked to him after we finished our lunch, and he discussed how he carefully selects the fish he serves, and that he doesn't cook with any added oil, only a very hot cooking surface. We loved the cilantro sauce that comes on the side. He said he uses Greek yogurt in this... More

What a neat setting near a park, tables over the lake is cool! Food is good but don't go too far out of your way to get there. People were friendly. Perhaps it was an off-day for them but the posted menu was hard to figure out with items taped over and some things not well written in. I was... More

the food was decent but the first two things we asked for they were out of it. and the man taking the orders seemed to have trouble understanding us at times. had the fish tacos as a third choice and they weren't too bad. also ordered a platter of smoked fish to share. i was a little disappointed after seeing...

This place is a treasure. The best fish sandwich I've ever had. Fresh snapper, grilled WITHOUT OIL ( lime juice only) and done to perfection ! Absolutely nothing fancy but exec chef Jimmy Rodriguez has a gem here. Near Oleta River State park. Don't miss this for some fantastic fish.

This restaurant is right on the waterway in North Miami Beach, Fl. Everything is fresh and made to order. You eat outside on picnic tables close to nature. Very tropical vibe.
