Perfect breakfast or brunch spot. I could sit here for hours with a good book. Very charming, just off the beach. Dinner available as well. Kid friendly outdoors too.

My friend and I stayed at the Beach Paradise Hotel and their food was horrible. It was her birthday, so I knew I wanted to take her to a nicer place. I'm so glad we picked this place.

This restaurant had excellent ambiance, just the right amount of off-the-strip (Ocean Drive very close) but not the crazy loud dining experience that you get on Ocean Drive. Food was excellent and good-experimental. Loved the guava margarita. Maybe too much. ;-)

This restaurant was our favourite, we went there several times to try many different plates. They have great tuna and sea food salads, mussels, very good burgers with house cut pommes frites, free fresh water. Their best plate is the sushi tuna salad and burgers. The prices are fair and the staff is very helpful and kind. Five stars!

This restaurant was across the street from our rented condo and we went there for drinks, dinner and take out dessert. Each time the service was exceptional and the food is great. The staff went out of their way to be accommodating to us. A cozy atmosphere. I highly recommend.

The Local House has become one of my favorite destinations in South Beach. It's such a refreshing space compared to so many of the cheesy options in the area. The restaurant is small, with a beautiful nautical theme. There's indoor seating as well as a few tables out in front of the restaurant. I've been here for brunch a handful... More
