“beautiful grounds and golf course!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

this is a nice hiddend treasure in miami, that feels like a different world from miami. i played golf on their course, and although i did have an unexpected close encounter with an alligator on one of the holes, but i was told he's a "local" and not to worry about it.

“a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Service excellent and food was perfect. Great choice of wine.
Walking into the restaurant via the front door, does not work.
You have to go to the center hallway and asked to be seated.
