Chris O's City Tips

  • Cabs are plentiful in popular areas.
  • Most of the main attractions in Miami Beach are within walking distance of each other.
  • The Metromover and Miami Trolley are free transportation options serving some of the most popular parts of town.
  • DO expect many more people to speak fluent Spanish than in most parts of America. DON'T assume they're foreigners just because they do!
  • Miami is much safer than what you see on TV. Still, with so many tourists, there are people who will try to take advantage. Keep an eye on your surroundings and you'll be fine.

    Versailles Restaurant
    Restaurants (Caribbean, Latin, Spanish, Cuban)

    Chris O Says:

    This Little Havana institution is the world's most famous Cuban restaurant (according to the owners anyway). It's probably the world's largest Cuban restaurant too. Along with the bakery and takeout area, Versailles seats more than 350 people. And because it's popular among local Cuban exiles and tourists alike for its connection to anti-Castro politics, the vast majority of these 350-plus seats are filled most of the time too. But it's not just the chance to dine like a local in a historic setting that draws 'em in – the food is excellent. Versailles' Cubano, as you might expect, is a classic.

    • To experience Versailles at its fullest, consider going on a Sunday afternoon, when the whole of Little Havana seems to be assembled for a feast with the family.

    It's no wonder why this bustling South Beach eatery is popular with the Miami Beach Cuban community. At Las Olas Cafe, the Cubano is epic and the coffee is high grade jet fuel (delicious too). Portions are ample, prices are low (especially for SoBe) and service is brisk (if brusque).

    Chris O Says:

    Nowhere near as flashy as most of its SoBe competitors, this stalwart of the Collins Avenue strip nevertheless knows how to reel 'em in: with a solid reputation for excellent food, efficient service and a no-nonsense approach to dining. Puerto Sagua's Cuban sandwich is the definition of comfort food. Whether you wander in for breakfast, lunch, dinner or that all important post-clubbing fourth meal, this is the place to soak Miami Beach's cosmo atmo - minus the glitz. Visiting celebrity chefs, vacationers, snowbirds, club kids and locals of all stripes... everybody seems to love this place.

    One of Florida's most sensational restaurants, Toro Toro restaurant at the Intercontinental is probably as good a reason as any to head into Downtown Miami. Helmed by Chef Richard Sandoval, the upmarket Pan Latin chophouse and bar has been wowing patrons in high style since it opened just a few years back.

    Miami Club Rum
    Distilleries
    Chris O Says:

    A tour of Miami's first distillery, Destilería Canéca, is a great way to support local industry. Set in the trendy Wynwood neighborhood, Destilería Canéca is the birthplace of Florida's own Miami Club Rum, a new-to-market spirit that is already pulling in the awards. Made from South Florida sugarcane and other locally sourced ingredients, the hand-crafted nectar is smooth, sexy and great for mixing.
