Romantic restaurants with views

Hi we are in Miami beach for a week in July. Could people recommend restaurants with the best ocean/sunset views. Can be informal or informal - just somewhere romantic for a couple

Hello L'n travel from London,

You are a bit out-of-luck on the sunset as most of the hotels, restaurants and such face the East... so you get a wonderful sunrise :)

We have never been to the Standard Hotel which, to my knowledge, is about the only restaurant facing the West so you'd see the sun set behind the big buildings of the City of Miami. If your heart is set on a sun setting over the ocean, the closest would be maybe one of the Florida Keys or Naples/Marco Island.

Another great option is Smith and Wollensky - which faces Government Cut - a very wide body of water that the ships enter/exit the Port of Miami. Watching the cruse ships leave is a favorite of my wife's. The best seating is outdoors which will be hot in July but that's Florida.

Facing west, start out with a sunset drink at the bar at Juvia on Lincoln Road Mall and then the restaurant at the Mondrian Hotel on West Avenue or a window table at Sardinia (Italian) on Purdy Avenue. For a casual sunset sip, definitely a waterside table (or barstool) at Smith & Wollensky as SoBe suggested or a seat at happy hour at Monty's at the Marina.
