We stopped in for lunch and some drinks after the beach. Great food, and even better drinks! BUT.... the best part of our experience was our service! Our waiter Martin was amazing! Will definitely be going back next time we are in South Beach!

However, they are back at the top again! We had the steak sandwich which my Swedish friends loved. The... More

We were on the terrasse for lunch; don't expect to have a leisurly, quiet meal. The food was unremarkable and delivered by a very nice but clearly overwhelmed hostess. A friendly and... More

We decided to treat ourselves to a meal on Ocean Drive on our last evening in Miami, knowing it would be more expensive than other areas. The waitress was very nice and happy to move us outside when we found the music on the terrace too loud to allow us to hear each other speak. We were specifically asked if... More

I returned to this place because I dined there for Super Bowl 44 in 2010. The food was very good and drinks were great. The 32 oz. drinks at this restaurant is less than the others. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Its a good place. There were many Spring Breakers durin my visit on 3/10/2017.
