We were all quite disappointed in the food and service at Miramars. Not only that, even had both been good, we thought it was overpriced. We started with the endive salad special. I’ve never seen a less visually appealing presentation. The entire salad was white....More

Very disappointing and over priced brunch. No oysters as advertised and a limited selection at best. Service was far superior to the food.

I have little words to say how perfect was my Sunday lunch at Miramar. I had the bouillabaisse, some french fries and an apple tart. Everything was absolutely perfect, the food, the service, the place, the music and the virgin mojito they prepared for me....More
