“Culinary Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Introduce yourself to Chef Antonio Estremera and challenge him and his staff to be creative, if you don't see exactly what you want on the menu.

Don't complain about the prices until you taste the food.

The much touted Signature Mojitos may be a bit overratted and the wine list probably needs some attention.

I loved the decor, feels like Miami Beach, the lighting is perfect, the hostess and wait staff are freindly and seem to like what they do. The food was very good.

“Terriffic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We were in town for the Piper 75th Birthday party and stumbled accross this hotel restaurant. From the moment we entered, we were treated like royalty with the service. Thank you Bernardo (Bernie). Food was excellent and unique. A truly great place and one not to be missed in Vero

“Nice atmosphere, great service, decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Our waiter was one of the best waiters we've ever had anywhere (don't remember his name, but he had a shaved head). The atmosphere was very modern and nice. The food was not amazing, but was good.

“Not for late night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We went there for a drink after a night at the theater. Bad idea. Bar is very uncomfortable for conversation. Service is so do. Being a Cuban restaurant we wrongly expected a late (10pm) night bar menu. To say something nice.......the valet service was a nice touch.
