So, me and my girlfriends went on vacation to miami, and we stayed in south beach in a hotel on ocean drive, since our hotel was not very appealing we decided to go for a walk on ocean drive to pick a place for dinner, after listening to plenty of hostesses bribing us to walk into their restaurants, we decided to stop at the park central cafe, a cute little restaurant nearly at the end of the street, that offered nice music, a non annoying hostess and a more upscale menu than the other restaurants nearby. The food was excellent and service was attentive, my girlfriends and I had a great time. The only thing we did not like was that because of the fact that the places are so close to each other the loud music from the restaurant next door over powered the ambiance we had.
also since it was one of my friends birthday the manager gave us a delicious chocolates cake beautifully decorated and with a candle on it!
it is safe to say this is the only restaurant worth eating on this street

Here no hidden prices, no specials Expensive at 100$ no big drinks at 20$. ocean drive is a trap everybody knows that! this is the only good normal restaurant! the food is affordable and very very good, i recomend the seabass, it s awsome, the drinks are at 12$ . The service is great, ask for paola! We had a live show. The guitar player played very smooth and nice songs then after we had nice electro music. We had a good time! After beeing scamed so many times we finally found the nicest spot on ocean drive. good food normal prices great service, good music, we will come back now everyday.

We stayed at the Park Central Hotel where Continental breakfast was included in our room rate. This amounted to a choice of EITHER toast or a muffin with a small fruit bowl and tea/coffee. Not exactly a filling start to the day. You could buy a variety of breakfasts if you wanted to, at an extra charge.

The food here was fine but the service left a lot to be desired! Its interesting that the soft drink prices are not noted on the drinks menu...we had a party with lots of kids and they ordered cokes. the cokes were $6 each. That alone I could just about put up with but the waiter was so rude. He kept asking the kids if they would like another and disnt ask their mother or the adults at the table if this was okay..nor did he mention there was no free refills. Sometimes, he didnt even ask, he just brought them a new coke when the old one was finished. This is SO unacceptable and IMO one of the negative aspects of automatic gratuity.This guy knew that he was a) getting 18 or 20% no matter what and b) made it his mission to make our bill as high as possible so that his cut would be improved. Would NEVER go here again.

Myslef and my girlfriend decided to go to Miami for the weekend.
After walking around for about 20 minutes on Ocean Dr and collected at least 20 flyers with all short of promotions, at the very end we walk in to Park Central Cafe. Right away we see and feel the difference nobody is assaulting us with promotions, the restaurant looked good casual but a bit classic, lots of plants good lighting and nice lounge music.
We looked at the menu the hostess nicely approaced us and told us that was happy hour.
We decied to seat and have dinner, the service was great so it was the food, we were surprised after reading all the reviews of all the restaurants there to find such a nice place. Favorite dishes were Beef carpaccio, Seabass and Key Lime Parfait. I was so happy that I called the manager, Nicola, to the table and asked him why they were not like any other restaurants, he responded simply that they are confident with their food and service
and that after some renovation they will work with reservations mostly.
We are happy to have landed in such a nice place a bit more pricy than a lot of the restaurants on Ocean Dr but defenetly worth it.
We recommend trying it out!
