“DELICIOUS!!!!! EAT HERE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

What's up with the complaints about the cost? It's Miami Beach, so don't expect it to be cheap.

Me and my family went to the beach, we walked down the strip to find some food. If you haven't been down to Miami before, when you walk down the strip, there are hotels and restaurants outdoors. We were stopped by a woman telling us about the two drink deal (can't remember what it was), we continued to walk but we decided to turn around and come back. We ordered our food as my mother and my sister got a drink (apart of the two drinks for one deal). My family wanted to stay on budget so they ordered off the special $9.99, my sister let me try her Cuban sandwich, yummy! I wasn't interested with anything on the special, so I took the risk and got a $15.00 Steak burrito. OH.MY.GOD! That was the best burrito I've ever tasted. It got better: my mother ordered a Mojito, WOW! Was it DELICIOUS! They gave us a cup to take the drink with us, me and my sister couldn't stop drinking it.

To anyone reading this, you won't be disappointed. EAT HERE! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

“rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

i was stuck in town due to flight delays...
went over to south beach and settled on the cardozo for lunch...
they offered a crab salad at 17.50...
wanting some light...
the crab was simply awful and of extremely poor quality..
infact i believe it was nothing more than low cost canned crab...
tasteless and salty...
for the price it was a huge rip off given what was served...
stay away

The atmosphere is unique ... the all staff is great ...
I was in holiday, just arrived from Italy, I was welcomed by Victor and his staff, he made me feel home ... food very very good ... the standard but in a original way ...

“What An Expensive Parrillada!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2010

Was offered a Parrillada special which I thought was to be more reasonable than the menu items. Well, when I got the check I noticed that the "special" cost $49.00!!! Good thing I had no appetizer nor dessert.
