We went here because we were in Miami for just one day (got off a cruise and waiting for a flight). We did a search on Triple D (Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives) and this was on the list. We drive 20 minutes to get...More

Off and on over the years we have stopped by this restaurant. Usually the people running the restaurant are different each time we visit, however, Oleta the cat is still in residence there. We were very happy to see her. She comes to your table...More

Perhaps we hit this place on an off day. Three of us shared the smoked fish spread as an appetizer. It was not very smoky and the flavor was definitely off. My sister had the fish tacos, there was a very generous serving but no...More

Don't pull in and pull out like we almost did. This place is nice and clean but doesn't have a lot of curb appeal. The food is fantastic, and the reason it is so good is because Chef Jimmy is not only well-trained and talented,...More
