“Great food”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Location excellent ideal for people watching on Ocean Drive. Very welcoming. Great menu, with large portions. I chose the jumbo crab cake and the macadamia crusted snapper which were both delicious and the crime brûlée was fantastic (and huge!). My only gripe is that they were so efficient I felt a bit rushed! I had barely enough time to enjoy the lovely warm bread and dip before my appetizer arrived. Similarily I had only just finished that before my main course arrived. As someone used to European style, I wanted to linger longer over my very enjoyable meal.

This was recommended by the gentleman at The Savoy where we were staying and so glad we did. Table for 4 on the upper level of the boardwalk - a bit cosy but worked just fine. Our waiter was well versed on the menu and wine list and his service was impeccable! Wish I could remember his name :(. Portions are huge! Great tasting food! This should be on everyone's list of places to eat!

“Very slow service, but delicious meal.”
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”
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.
