Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Food was great, perfect music volume and Omar was the perfect host. Highly recommended for bringing guests from out of town to show off a terrific Miami Beach Restaurant.

Ask for Noemi and you won't be disappointed. She's what great service is about. Positive attitude, sharp service, and great energy. Loved their moules-frites so much that I was craving it my whole trip!
