I had eggs Benedict and the wife had the continental breakfast. We were both very happy with both our meals and the service. The porch and the music made for a delightful breakfast.

I only had breakfast there. It was delicious and plentiful. Again, the service was also great. Also, the view was great. Ask to sit outdoors. You can look at the pool, foliage etc. Very calming.

We ended up eating at this hotel restaurant during our stay in Miami Beach much more often than I would have expected. All food was fresh and good quality, and service was excellent. We loved to sit outside on the candle-lit terrace in the evenings.
