“Very slow service, but delicious meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I recently visited here on a trip to Miami Beach. It was directly next door to our hotel, which was convenient. It was on a very busy corner of Ocean Drive and it was quite a spectacle to watch the passer-by (both vehicular and pedestrian). The menu was mostly seafood, and I ordered the salmon. It took quite a long time for the food to come out. My dish arrived, and it was a very different flavor profile than I am used to eating-- spicy with aromatic flavors unfamiliar to me. The salmon was slightly overcooked, but not too badly that it was inedible. I ordered the creme brulee for dessert and was pleasantly surprised-- light yet rich, and not too sweet. The outdoor dining right on the street was fun, and our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.

“A good surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went to this restaurant recommended by the Concierge of our Hotel. It’s very well located with a very nice decoration.
The service is also very good. We were “afraid”, because it was full, but everything went very well.
The wine list it’s Ok and all the food was very good.
A place to recommend and visit again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We know this place now since four years, in all these years it serves finest food, great cocktails, has a very friendly and attentive staff and nice music. If you look for quality and athmosphere, don't look further....

“Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

This was a very nice restaurant. The food and service was spectacular. We sat outside and it was very nice...a little noisy from the traffic though. We highly recommend this spot. We hated we didn't go back before we left.
