Started with apps and that is as far as we got. I had high expectations. Especially after this place was highlighted on Triple D. Sorry Guy, your staff was way off on this place. How this restaurant can plate fried seafood that hasn't been seasoned is incredible. I ordered the fried oysters, fresh and juicy Yes! But bland as hell. It seemed they shucked the oysters, dredge them in unseasoned plain flour and into the fryer. My wife ordered the shrimp empanadas. Sent them back as they were barely warm. The second time around, they were still cold in the middle. The Grouper soup was NASTY! I only took one sip because I couldn't get past the smell or taste. Again, BLAND as well. The broth tasted as if it were made from fish that had seen its last days two days ago. We are spoiled with the well seasoned fried shrimp and fish that is offered in Chicago. Our server was very gracious with our dissatisfaction and removed the cold empanadas and the soup from our check. This is a cash only place. BTW, the neighborhood is iffy.

First, parking around this place to tough. Second, bring cash. Third, if you want a table, be ready to wait. There will be a line. If you are going to do carry out, you will need to make your way to the countertop.

The food that we ordered:
Fried Shrimp - The fried shrimp were had a great fresh taste. they were medium in size. The coating was light but had a great spicy taste. There were seven of them.

Snapper sandwich - The entire fish is fried, less the head. It comes on a soft bun with mayo, chopped onions. A classic fish sandwich.

Fries - If you enjoy limp fries with no spices, these are for you. I did not care for them. I think they were rushed.
See pics.
Enjoy!

As another reviewer said - dont go for the atmosphere, go for the FOOD! We started with oyster cocktail and shrimp Empanada ( never had one) - then my wife had arroz con mariscos ( Fri - Sun only ) and I had fried shrimp combo with arroz con pescado. Two words - GREAT FOOD

Don't expect a fancy seafood restaurant 'cause is not but then it doesn't have that kind of prices.
Fresh, good quality, well cooked seafood. That's all there is. No wine menu, no 6 pieces cutlery table setting... None of that, but if you're up for a nice fish fillet sandwich or some great fried shrimps with fries this is THE PLACE!
Overall would surely recommend.

so the best endorsement any place can get is if the locals swear by it then it generally is worth a look, and that is exactly what drew us to this place, we had a little wait but to be honest it was well worth it, we are comin back to Miami in the new year and will be making a bee-line for this place. you must try it.
