We strolled down Ocean Drive through many of the restaurants with outdoor seating and were literally accosted by female hostesses practically BEGGING us to sit down and eat at their restaurants. I felt like I was in a marketplace in Mexico and not in a good way.
PLEASE NOTICE that in many of the rip off restaurants THERE ARE NO PRICES ON THE DRINK MENUS. The hostess will tell you "Oh, this drink is normally $45 but for you today it is 2 for $25" Sounds like a good deal, right? Yeah, until you get your bill and you are charged for $100 for your drinks. Never trust anyone there. It is disgraceful, really. I expected so much more out of South Beach.
Thank goodness we had the sense to get the heck out of there before we ordered anything. I just had a bad feeling about it and I googled several restaurants and read review after review of people that had been ripped off.
The food looked horrible!! The pizza looked like a microwave pizza.
Beautiful area that has been corrupted by someone with a lot of power that can get away with it. Try Lincoln Road area - it is better than this tourist trap.
