“Happy Birthday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We dined here for a family birthday, it was great. Excellent food, friendly service and amazing architecture. With the big windows this may be a fun place to dine during a storm! Next time we won't wait for a special occasion.

“Amazing hospitality and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Third visit to Casita Miro and once again you have blown us away. From the warm genuine hospitality on arrival by Kath and Will to the amazing food selection it was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon. The restaurant is gorgeously presented with stunning views on the vineyard and the crystal blue waters. Muchas Gracias for an awesome experience we will return and buy more Miro wines soon
