Good, creative French cooking in an out of the way location. Restaurant obviously is a neighborhood favorite and worth trying.

Almost a year ago, specifically on 21 April, I submitted a review for the Oriente entitled “Our Favorite place to eat on South Beach”. My wife, daughter and I returned last night (Valentines’ Day) and found several changes had taken place – none of which were positive. First of all the menu had been completely revised. The cool merging of... More

My family and I first visited Oriente in April 2006 and loved it. The prices were typically high for the area, a trendy section of Ocean Drive on Miami Beach. At that time, the Oriente was noted for its blending of Chinese and Cuban cuisines. During our next visit for dinner during Thanksgiving week 2008, we were expecting a similar... More

Be warned people - a mixed grill at this restaurant costs $139, yes, $139!!!! Our waitress recommended it and it sounded good. Main courses cost between $25-50 on the menu so one would expect the specials to be at least comparable in price- not almost triple the cost of anything else on the menu. Your waiter / waitress will not... More

Just my opinion. $52 for two sandwichs and two iced teas -- what a rip-off. We went there for Cuban food, found none, zero, nada. Service was curt and slow. Terrible experience -- avoid this place.

I ate at Oriente on 9/20/2008 at about 8pm, they were FAR from busy. I'm not sure what you have to do to get good service at this place. The food wasn't bad so don't blame the chefs, but the service...I've never had worse service then I did at this place. I've heard about service people acting pretentious at certain... More

This is the restaurant in the Cardozo Hotel, owned by Gloria Estefan. We got free breakfast vouchers with our room, and the food is fine and a great value. The service is atrocious. In spite of the fact that it is always almost empty, it can take fifteen minutes to get your order taken, and only after flagging down a... More
