“Amazing, unique and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I've been here twice and it just gets better. Incredibly friendly staff, delectable food! The tasting menu at $50 is a steal for the size and quality of the food. Chef Micah is passionate and talented. Don't miss the hot Malta putting. Probably the best dessert I've ever had.

“Eclectic, Exotic, Ecstasy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Eclectic World Cuisine does not fully define this amazing establishment. Nemesis is colorfully cozy, and located in the hotest club area of Downtown Miami. The cuisine is a fusion of exotic ingredients and traditional techniques creating marvelous dishes. The ostrich carpaccio, leek/fig/duck pot stickers and guava chile pork starters are incredible. This meal will leave you completely satiated. Fresh ingredients and intimate service. The wine list is varied and well priced. Reservations are a must. Foodies will be in ecstasy.

“An Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but once you park and enter Nemesis you forget about the surroundings. The staff was great and vet knowledgable. We got the tasting menu and let them choose everything even the wine. The food and the experience was amazing. The only bad thing was that we had theater tickets at 8:00 and could not stay longer. This is a must for any true foodie!!!

“Eclectic space, amazing tastes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Trio of smart, funky and professional chef, sous chef and Jeramiah (host, sommelier, waiter, historian and menu guide) made our dinner a delight. Samoosas--flaky, gentle spices, and presented simply, along side delicious light duck dumplings to begin. A special of sweet/fragrant nicely spiced alligator ribs and a wonderfully cooked and presented ribeye (topped with a sunny side up duck egg and accompanied by home smoked lamb bacon) went extremely well with a wonderful South African wine selection. A fresh peach bread pudding topped off an exceptional meal. The fact that Frida, Nelson Mandela, Amy Winehouse, Ute Lemper and Kermit are all represented somehow on the walls, the joyful border of discarded neckties flying above the front window and the beautiful parasols gracing the ceiling made a wonderful dinner truly a unique experience. Well done!

“Boho chic comes to food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

What an absolute delight this restaurant is! The food is fresh and innovative without being fussy or pretentious. The flavours are strong, distinctive but never overpowering. The waiter was knowledgeable, friendly yet not familiar or overbearing. Micah, the South African chef, is the star. She's very unassuming and quietly passionate about her craft and what she conjures every day in her tiny kitchen. Nemesis is a little gem in a generally OTT city.
