This restaurant was an old favorite, then appeared to go into a period of decline. However our visit last Saturday assured me that this restaurant is on the rebound. Great location on the Miami River for casual dining. Friendly wait staff who were very attentive to our needs. And the fish was cooked to perfection!

Visited this place for a late lunch with a group of seven after having searched the web for a nice seafood restaurant. Seafood was below average and the ambiance of the place tatty and dirty looking, especially the toilets. I personally judge a place on the cleanliness of the restrooms!!! I will not be going there again for sure! Oh... More

Normal food. Good ambiance. Service just ok. Bill came with 20% included and after running the card it came with a space for "tip". Not additional tip, just tip. So, of you didn't pay attention you may just tip 40%. Tricky. Not fair. Not honest.

I went for lunch with a friend, minutes from his place on Brickel. I'd been there many times before, and it was good as ever. We sat out under the covered outdoor space watching the boats go by on the Miami River as they brought us the gratis smoked fish pate and saltines. we ordered a whole grilled yellowtail snapper,...

This restaurant purports to be a well reviewed, fine restaurant with a selection of fresh seafood. I rate it one star because this restaurant is nothing but disappointing. I found the service lackluster, the portions small, and the food tasteless. We ordered several dishes on recommendation of the waiter: the shrimp bisque had no shrimp (the waiter said "they're very... More

Maybe, one of the best seafood restaurants in the Miami. Well-knows for its King Stone Crabs, nicely decorated, top shelf drinks, same day catch plates....and unique Cuban flavor....

Beautiful location, food was fantastic but the service was not. It seemed like whenever we asked about something or for something it was like we were bothering them.
