    Khoury's Mediterranean Restaurant: Best Mediterranean restaurant in Miami

    by Homanded Written Jul 20, 2011

    We had dinner here last night (July 19th -- 2011) and are now hooked being from Miami.
    Had never eaten here but will return again and again.
    Not pricey at all for the quality of food and service.

    Waitress treated us like long lost friends and more like family than clients.
    The food was DELICIOUS and she even asked us how long to wait between appetizer dish and main course so as to not rush us and give us time to "settle".
    Additionally, besides suggesting dishes, she pointed out proper mix/match and how to eat them.

    Favorite Dish: We had the hummus with ground lamb and pine nuts, homemade cheese with tomatoes and red onions, and the chicken livers in a vinegar sauce with garlic.
    For entrees we had the stuffed lamb - INCREDIBLE!!! and the mixed kabobs.
    Our waitress was attentive, very personable and treated us like family.

    They are known for their homemade pita.

    Hofbrau Munchen: German Beer Hall

    by donpaul77 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    I don't know what compelled Hofbräu Munchen to open a beer hall among the euro cafes and nightclubs on Lincoln Road, but I'm glad they did! I was strolling along, admiring the sights and looking for a place to sit and people-watch, when I was thrilled to see the illuminated Hofbräu Munchen sign, and cute beer maidens carrying large draughts to the outdoor tables. Crazy German folk music plays over the loudspeakers, making you want to sway back and forth with your mug in hand. The hostess was even German!

    Favorite Dish: True to the nature of a beer hall, Hofbräu Munchen serves only one brand of beer (Hofbräu Munchen from Munich!), with several varieties. Their menu also features an amazing range of wurst and other German specials. On the light side, you can always just get a pretzel. You can get beer in three sizes: .5 litre, 1.0 litre, and the 2.0L Beer Boot, which is brought forth with the ringing of a huge cowbell. Be proud!

    I enjoyed this place and the Hofbräu beer was fantastic. It's a good switch from the South Beach norm and they've really done their best to simulate the beer hall experience.

    Pollo Tropical: Cuban fast food is good!

    by donpaul77 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Pollo Tropical serves fast food, Cuban style. Their specialty is fire grilled chicken with a variety of sides to choose from, including black beans and rice. You can order a quarter, half or whole chicken, white, dark or both. It is healthy food and fast and cheap...what's wrong with that? If I lived in Miami, I would probably eat there once a week at least.

    A la folie - cafe francais: You'll feel like you're in Paris...

    by wahine76 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Typical parisian bistro-cafe offers a genuine French ambiance by its interior design, music, food and staff! Youll totally feel like you were lost in Paris! You can even practice your French!

    They have great crepes, french sandwiches and salads!

    Favorite Dish: Definately their salad...I think it was called salade campagnarde...it was huge with brie cheese, pate de campagne, croutons, pickles, etc..and served with french bread.

    The only think I didnt like was that they take a huge gratuity amount.

    Vizcaya Cafe: Lunch by the Pool

    by grandmaR Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After we toured most of the house, we went back over to the swimming pool side where there was a cafe and got lunch (kind of cafeteria style). We could have eaten outside, but it was too hot for me out there.

    Favorite Dish: Our bill for lunch was $19.25. I had a salad and some fruit

  • The Original Versailles Restaurant: Don't miss this dining gem!

    by dennisruiz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Always popular with the locals, Versailles is a great place to take those out-of-town visitors for a complete immersion in Cuban culture. The restaurant is a lot like the Cuba of old -- loud, boisterous, and full of excitement, just dripping in Cuban patriotism.

    Favorite Dish: I especially like the garlic and egg soup, a beef-based soup with chunks of tender (and mild) garlic.

    Azul: 5 stars !!!!!

    by jlanza29 Updated Mar 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in the 5 star Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Brickell Key, Azul was recently awarded the 5 star award for a restaurant. Now I have traveled the world many times over, and eaten a numerous 5 star restaurants, and this is one of few that I question the rating from the pro's !!!!! The food is simple, and the prices HIGH and the portions very, very small........if you were to eat 3 portions on the same plate then it would be worth the price but I had a hard time paying $46 a plate for 4 ounces of seared Chilean sea bass and a half cooked scallop !!!!! Not to take away from the place....it has awesome views of the city of Miami, and the bar area is ultra chic. Only valet parking and at $20 a pop, but when you come to eat here $20 for parking is a bargain for what your gonna spend here !!!!! also they have a 1935 Chateau Latour wine bottle that was confiscated from Adolf Hitler when the Americans soldier's found his wine collection in the Swiss Alps in 1945 after the fall of the Nazi's for a mere $14,500 !!!!!!! Only 20 left to exist in the world !!!!!

    Favorite Dish: For serious wine drinkers.....the 1965 "Le Montrachet" from Joseph Dourhin at $5,000 a bottle........

    WOW !!!!

    Blue Door in the Delano Hotel: For a special night

    by jlanza29 Updated Mar 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in the ultra chic Delano Hotel the Blue Door restaurant is an ultimate dinning expericence for a special night.......the food is amazing, good wine list, but pricey and the service excellent. Located towards the back of the hotel lobby ask for a table inside and you'll be rewarded with a romantic and quiet place, ask for a table outside and you'll see the tons, and tons of people coming in and out of the hotel....great people watching place, but no very private !!!!!! and indeed sometimes very loud !!!!!! but be prepared to drop major $$$$ when dinning here !!!!! but if you can....HIGH RECOMMEND IT !!!!!!

    Favorite Dish: Oven roasted Tuna.....just amazing !!!! excellent selection of Opus One wines.....a bit pricey though !!!! $300 for a 1999 vintage......$1,500 for a 1990 vintage !!!!!!

    Expensive but worth it !!!!

    The Restaurants at the Setai Hotel: SPECTACULAR !!!!

    by jlanza29 Updated Mar 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The newest and most expensive and without a doubt hippest place to be at the beach THE SETAI Hotel......this place is all about the bling !!!!!! Be forwarned you must come with $$$$$ this place isn't for everyone !!!!! There is 2 restaurant with the same cusinine, we chose to eat at the smaller and quite one on the far side of the bar. The service was not bad, not good either that was probably the most disappointing part of it, but the place is ULTRA COOL, ULTRA CHIC !!!!!!

    Favorite Dish: We chose to have warm lobster salad, WOW !!!!! with lemongrass sauce, the best part that they served a good size portion of lobster......$32 a plate and with a wine cellar meant to impressive the who's who of any client......a tab for this place is easily $250 + for 2 person. Great for a special evening !!!!! well worth it give it 8 of 10, if it wasn't for the impersonal, and just OK service !!!! if the service improves....this place would get a perfect 10 out of 10 !!!!

    Hip and Ultra cool !!!!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many people feel intimdated into driving into Little Havana to eat authentic Cuban food, but many don't know that the best place to eat Cuban food isn't the overpriced Gloria Estefan's place on Ocean Drive but this place on Collins ave.... dead smack in the middle of South Beach.....you can't get better Cuban food even if you were in Habana itself !!!!! The menu has english translation, and the food is excellent and cheap !!!!! come early come late, this place is always packed with both tourist and locals that know that this is the place to eat CUBAN food !!!!!! Come to eat the portions are HUGE !!!!!!

    Favorite Dish: Culeta de cerdo con gris (grilled pork chops with black beans and rice) $9.00 AWESOME !!!!!
