“Awesome view for people watching !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The staff is really friendly and fun to hang out and chat with. Happy hour was free for us hotel guests! The food is quite good. We ate a breakfast at the outdoor cafe two mornings in a row!!

“Try the Paella!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We ate dinner here one night during our stay. As with all Ocean Drive restaurants, the hustle and bustle can be a little annoying as you approach, as every restaurant is trying way too hard to get your business. But once you get seated, this restaurant had some of the best food we ate all week. It was a little pricey (South Beach is pricey everywhere). I had the Paella dish, and it was huge, more than I could eat, and VERY tasty! I'd recommend this restaurant over most along Ocean Drive.

“Just absolutely amazing experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

There are places in South Beach on Ocean Drive that try to trick you and have horrible service. The Pelican Cafe is completely the opposite and is an absolute gem. Great food aside, I have never received such excellent service. The servers are so caring and are there to cater to your every need. I honestly don't have enough compliments for this place. Amazing food and drinks, amazing music, amazing atmosphere, amazing staff. One of my friends got drunk and sleepy and the restaurant manager brought her a pillow...no joke. This should be the first and only restaurant you visit if you're ever on Ocean Drive. Just phenomenal!
