This restaurant was recommended by a friend. A real surprise as the restaurant is housed in a gas station's quickie market. The sangria was excellent and all the meals were good. A great restaurant to take someone if you want to surprise someone.

Gosh, I'm joining a bunch of other reviews and repeating what they have written. This place is great. We were early going someplace nearby, you know traffic on US1. My husband suggested this place, he's passed it several times and was curious. You have to...More

Only in Miami can you find a combination gas station/wonderful restaurant/wine shoppe! Their wine collection is extensive, the food is great, and there are even macaroons in the dessert case. Talk about one stop shopping!

Food and service couldn't have been better. Wide selection of beer and wine available which you purchased at retail. A $10.00 corkage fee for wine was O.K. but a $5.00 charge to open a bottle of beer seemed way out of line. I returned the...More
