“Very good experience”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Just arrived from London, needed some food and quenching of thirst.
Hugo at the bar was very polite and attentive.
Mexican food selection is very good.
Had the octopus for starter and the Chicken Caesar.
Freshly prepared and well presented. Very tasty.

“The Best!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The best salsa & shrimp quesadillas ever! It was a pricy lunch but worth it :-) And the views from the table are priceless. We ate here 2 days in a row & had the same thing both times.

“Expensive but worth it”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We were staying in Miami Beach but made a day trip to Key Biscayne and decided to have an early dinner here after reading other reviews on TA. The setting is beautiful and the service was top-notch. Our waiter suggested I try a pepper-flavored margarita which was excellent and also suggested the grilled jumbo prawns which he said were like mini-lobsters (indeed they were). Also enjoyed the freshly made guacamole.

“Tasty dinner, strong tasty drink, great location.”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I don't think you would eat here unless you are staying at the Ritz-Carlton, but I was and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner.

Complementary chips/salsa are served. I had a basic or classic margarita which was watery, but then two (!) of the jalapeno-infused ones and they were tasty and strong.

The scallops dish was very, very tasty, although I would've like a 5th or 6th scallop for $28.

Service was very good, friendly. And you can't beat an outdoor restaurant next to the beach and ocean.

There's a variety of seating options...bar, formal tables, casual tall tables, a relaxed seating area with deep couches....I could definitely hang here.
