“Not for Tourists!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

As a 64 year old, born in Miami. Stay Away even on the adjacent roads including Biscayne Blvd. Don't stop even for coffee. Keep items in your trunk out of sight. I speak from experience and as a victim. Yes crime happens everywhere but more often here.

“Cultural Life...becoming the melting pot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Do not believe the hype about high crime! Crimes are and can happen anywhere, One must be careful anywhere you go.You must experience for yourself the growing cultural life and arts entertainment. Places to be is Little Haiti Cultural Center during Big Night in Little Haiti a free night concert by Rhythm Foundation. The cultural center provides on going classes, children program and performances from different organizations and individual artists. The businesses' storefronts have been remodeled. Churchill Pub is not the only place, there is the Little Haiti/Little River "Sannon" Park and a few nice restaurants. Near by neighborhoods to the east is Morningside and south is the Miami Design District, Midtown and Miami Design District.

“Not somewhere you want to be if you are a tourist”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place should not be listed as a tourist destination.
It's a neighborhood.
Some good people and some very bad.
Not a safe place to visit.

“It was not what I expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

When I search about where to go in Miami, I found that Little Haití was very recommended. My first impression was that it is very dangerous, people don´t look nice, also, I don´t found anything interesting. It was a waste of time

“STOP FOR THE FOOD”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Haitian food CAN BE delicious. Stop and take a culinary risk! Be careful of drivers, they are maniacs there, apparently traffic rules are just a suggestion.
Try the fish patties and creole bread, very tasty.
