“Mojitos Gigantes!”

Cardozo Bar & Grill
Ranked #45 of 99 Nightlife in Miami Beach
Attraction details
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Attended a conference in South Beach. Three colleagues and I ventured into this restaurant on Ocean Dr. Lured by the accomplished musician playing acoustic guitar, we sat at a table on the sidewalk so that we could enjoy people watching along with the delectible assortment of food we ordered. We began the evening with Mojitos served in a glass requiring two hands to lift. Two of us shared the grilled seafood platter served with grilled vegetables and steamed rice that was perfectly prepared! Another ordered the Paella that was simply the best I've ever tasted. The Churrasco Steak was the choice for the other member of our party. Again, it was perfectly grilled. The service was best in class which only enhanced our dining experience.

While in Miami for a conference, four of us went to look for a restaurant on Ocean Dr that the concierge recommended. We couldn't find it, and seemed shelter under the giant umbrellas covering the sidewalk. When the rain stopped, we decided to find a good seafood restaurant. As we backtracked down the sidewalk the guitar music that flowed from this restaurant lured us in. We dined al fresco, and our server was fabulous! The have several dinners for two or more. We ordered a variety of food and Mojito's. The seafood platter was huge with an abundance of seafood including lobster, shrimp, all kinds of seafood! Never have I tasted such Paella before! The rice and black beans were perfectly seasoned. I had the Churrusco Steak...perfectly tender and delicious. The server was charming and very attentive, and the music...just awesome! Mix that with the mother of all Mojitos and you have a complete and amazing dining experience!

Deceptive pricing
Small portions
Very basic food
No particular ambience

On the main strip are a whole lot of restaurants. They advertise cheap appetizers and drinks. Once you are done eating and get the bill you realize you are paying an exorbitant amount for a small meal.

We paid $96 for 4 mozzarella sticks, plain veggie pasta, seafood pasta and a margarita. That's a rip off.

How do they do it ? Their 2-for-1 drink is $25. Then they add a massive gratituty (we were 2 people only). That gets you to about $50.

Stay away. Don't waste your money. Those smiling waiters and waitresses inviting you to the restaurant are a front end for the scam.
