“Perfect bayside location in the evening to catch the live music!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We spent one of the most beautiful evenings in miami at the bayfront park. We reached there around 6 in the evening and got our tickets for the Millionaire's Row cruise with
Island Queen. It was a magical 90 mins spent aboard a very comfortable modern yacht.
This park has free nightly live music which is splendid. And Latin American Bayside cafe is right next to the stage. We found ourselves an outdoor table next to the bay and enjoyed the music.Ordered their mojito and a Cuban sandwich. Service was prompt and the Cuban sandwich was enough for the 2 of us. It was huge!! would highly recommend this place . Do try the Cuban sandwich!!

“Avoid......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

My wife and I had lunch here, hoping for a nice cuban sandwich with a view. Well, we got the view. It started out with a 10 minute wait before the waitress even came to our table. My wife ask her how much the Marguaritas cost, she shrugged and said 8 or 9 dollars. I asked her which was it, 8 0r 9, she shouted to another waitress who promply replied 10 dollars. We both laughed and ordered the Cuban sandwich hoping for the best...we didn't get it. The sandwich wasn't very good and my stomach fought with it for the entire day and night. The place is over priced, has poor service and should be avoided unless you just like heartburn.

“Go for the view, try not to eat the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Food was forgettable at best. The drinks were standard tourist schlock. The view was quit nice, overlooking the Miami harbor. Avoid if at all possible.

“Great view, unappetizing food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Great view of the marina, but the food was bland and uninteresting. When the best food on your plate is the pickle garnish, something needs to change. The daiquiris were very weak and premixed. Would not recommend or return

“Cuban fare disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I will start by saying the view from this bayside restaurant is fabulous. But that is pretty much where it ends. The service is super slow. Our waiter came by once. The food was tough and haunted me for two days. The prices were outrageous. For a fajita, a couple of pork chunks and a "steak" thinner and tougher than a shoe sole I felt that $70 was a bit ridiculous. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant.
