“Tiny, excellent French cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Located in a small strip plaza in the heart of South Miami the place amazes. These people ARE French, and so is the excellent food. Try the roasted grouper in a light champagne sauce, the moules and frites, or just about anything. Great find!

“A little bit of France in South Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

This is a small family owned restaurant in South Miami with an excellent menu and fabulous food cooked home style. It has all the charm of a Parisian bistro, and a wonderful place to enjoy a bit of France in the Miami urban area.

“Best French in Miami!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Had Lunch today with a friend and I'm glad I got there early. 10 minutes after they had a line. Which is not hard because is a small place. I had a French onion soup and a salad. Both delicious!!! The cheese on top of the soup was very good quality and the goat cheese and honey salad was superb!!! My friend had a spinach salad with salmon. It looked very fresh, next time I'm going to try it. The serviced was perfect, the waitress was very nice and professional. Highly recommend this place.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner with some family I hadn't seen in years and had a wonderful meal. Bouillabaisse was superb and my husbands steak was "the best I've had in years." Excellent wine and apple tart.

“Petite, but nice little vibe to it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

An energetic and happy staff work hard and produce a good product for the customers to enjoy in some what cramped conditions.

My lunch and dinner experiences have all been good.

I am from England and I realized that the staff were a fun and eclectic group - some from France and others from South America. We are in the year 2013 and who cares where the staff are from apart from some pig headed pretentious customers that demand that everyone working in THEIR French Restaurant have the requisite French accents.

The menu is compact, but with food for all.

Well done Pastis you do a great job and I expect you to sit on my favorites list for a long time.
