Unfortunately it was closed for renovations while we were there. We'll check back with them in January when we return for the Art Deco Event. The host Philip was a very memorable gentleman.

We stayed a couple of days at The Tides in South Beach (read my comments) and thus we took the chance to try some of the restaurants along Ocean Drive. It does not matter what time of the day it is, but you see people eating at any time of the day and you can’t walk an inch without being... More

If your after a good meal with pleasant surroundings, and good service this isn't the place. I even doubt if the seafood is fresh. This is obviously in a tourist trap and the prices match. I only ended up here as laziness meant I didn't want to walk any further for my dinner. Big mistake. If you are in the... More

It is now June 2014 and this place has now been under NEW management/ownership for a few months. They need to change the name, but I will get back to that. We usually stay at Hotel Eva whenever we visit my folks in South Beach. We have often enjoyed great meals at Bistro 1506 below the hotel. Last weekend, (May... More

We had a very nice dinner at Cavalier Crab Shack on Ocean Drive. The management and wait staff were friendly and attentive and the Greek fish dish was quite good. This restaurant apparently has changed management and now is run by the team from Eva's Bistro. We would return during another trip to South Beach.

We were on South Beach for the afternoon and didn't want to venture much further than our spot at 13th and Ocean. The first warning should have been that it was empty beside a packed patio next to it. The second indication that something wasn't quite right was that when asking for a regular sized margarita, we were pointed to... More

This restaurant is the worse we test in Miami. My wife ended her dinner around 15mn before my son and I were served !!! We wait more than 30mn for 2 little hamburgers and french fries (I'm still looking for the avocado in mine ...) They don't ask cook for meat. We ask for a little alcohol free mojito for... More

I think the price was fair for the quality and the fact that it is in miami beach in ocean drive. The service was correct, not too slow not too fast. The waiter was quite friendly. But the the gratuity (18 %) is already included in the bill, which i found not cool. So no need to add it again.... More
