I took a client there for lunch and it is definitely not like it used to be. None of the food we ordered was good except for the grilled octopus and even that was not as good as most other restaurants. Avoid the fish ceviche...More

We found this little seafood restaurant by asking our Uber driver where to go. If you are looking for a place where the locals go, this is the place. I suggest the mahi mahi or not he grouper. Both were very good. The conch fritters...More

While visiting from Colorado, I was seriously craving some fresh fried shrimp. I ordered the jumbo fried shrimp plate, and the shrimp were absolutely amazing! Enjoyed sitting by the water and watching the boats pass by as we are. Super dinner!

From the look of it outside, you wouldn't know there was a restaurant. When you walk up, you see the fish market that also has a counter and some stools. I gave my husband a curious look that he would choose this for a night...More

Let me say I grew up around seafood all my life, living in a tropical island. I rarely if ever write a review of a restaurant but after dining with my wife and infant daughter on a recent trip to Miami I feel compelled to...More

One of our favorite places in Miami for lunch or dinner right on the river. They have both their own fish market and boats coming in. Does not get any fresher. We especially like the various chowders and fish sandwiches! Also the oysters are extremely...More
