Right on ocean drive, you can't beat the view. Friendly staff. I had the spaghetti carbonara and the pasta was so tender and obviously freshly made in house. It was food fit for the gods! Loved it!

Al of the restaurants offering outdoor seating on Ocean Drive annoy passers by with entreaties to stop. There are lots of places/competltion. Our lunch here was actually pretty good and included delicious salads, and a very tasty tiramisu and espresso. The fish in our salads was perfect and the tomatoes were fresh and sweet . Service was friendly. The setting... More

Right on Ocean Ave, Pelican provides a good meal with friendly service - from the servers to the managers. We ate here numerous times over our week in the area and were not disappointed. Gustavo is one of the managers and became a friend of my mother. Most people visiting Miami Beach will only have a few meals on Ocean... More

We had the fish platter - good, quite a large amount of fish but squid was overcooked / re-heated and suggests they cook it in a large batch. Rest of seafood on the platter was fine. Great location, we ate outside under the covers (it was raining) and for people watching it can't be beaten. Cocktails - we had 2... More

Breakfast very bad, crumble eggs not well cooked, fat and without taste. Great view and kind service except the boss !!! Prefer another area to have a correct breakfast or lunch ! Tea was not included in the price but the coffee yes...

Enjoyed our lunch here sitting outside along the sidewalk on Ocean Blvd. Food was good quality and drinks good. Able to watch all the excitement of the strip!

A lot of choice on Ocean Drive and I'm not sure we'd go back. Food was good but very $$$$ for the quality. As with most restaurants on the strip you are squeezed in on the sidewalk, part of the charm I guess...?? Seemed to have better deals in the neighbouring restaurants. No soap in the ladies restroom.

With so many choices on Ocean Drive, it can be confusing. This place was great, got to sit outside and watch the madness and the food was outstanding, with great service.

Thank Kvdle
