Had dinner here during a one night stopover in Miami Beach before leaving on a cruise.
We had been seated outside, but the overly loud music plus theOcean Boulevard traffic noise forced us indoors.
It was there that we met Lorenzo, our fabulous waiter.What a sweetheart.
He said he wanted us to have a great time and did we ever.
The chef sent us some special hot appetizers on the house-vegetarian for my friend and seafood for me. Mine consisted of calamari, oysters and scallops, all done to perfection.
Our mains courses were both superb and my Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand was the best I had ever tasted.
Lorenzo then sent us a special creme brûlée, again on the house.
Our other waiter, whose name I forget (he was from Mexico) was also absolutely delightful.
Delicious fresh seafood and warm friendly service are ever-present here.
I will definitely return.

My wife and I shared and feasted on seafood paella and seafood risotto. Though the paella was not the traditional recipe, the food was tasty and generous, the service attentive and the locale on Ocean Blvd in South Miami Beach was exciting. Overall, a much better experience from the night before at the restaurant next door.

Oysters were great and had unique preparation with bell peppers and two flavorful sauces...we ordered 6 but were given 10...could have eaten 20! Escargot and scallops next, both were delicious. My husband had seafood risotto which was full of seafood and very flavorful. I had the filet mignon which was amazing. Finished with creme brulé which was average, but after a night of great dishes, who cares. Good wine selection, perfect South Beach ambiance and energy. Highly recommend this place for a special dinner.

Perfectly prepared fresh seafood. Fairly priced food & wine on Ocean Drive. We had octopus first and then the paella, and fish of the day.
