You have to know this place to visit, and if you do it's well worth it! We preferred sitting inside just because of the old-style decor with the furniture and the pictures/paintings all around, it was worth it; on the outside you get a certain view but, at least for the time we visited, it was too loud with the music and it felt like you could be anywhere in an oceanfront seafood place with modern country music playing on the background... it defeats the purpose of being in old cuban-style traditional restaurant in my opinion. Very good food!

A wonderful fish house with great seafood, atmosphere ( seating inside and out), & friendly service. We eat there often and always leave satisfied and happy. The menu is 99% fish but prices vary; you can go for a sandwich or splurge a little and get fresh Florida lobster- simply grilled is pure enjoyment. You get 2 sides with entrees- We usually get Spanish yellow rice and cole slaw. It's a wonderful setting for couples, families, large groups. There is a small fee for valet parking. Great setting on the River

This restaurant is fantastic! The seafood does not get fresher than this! I highly recommend the blackened Mahi Mahi. Oh, and don't forget to order the Conch Fritters!

The food was terrific...we will definitely return! The service was good and the atmosphere, too. Definitely an old Miami gem of a restaurant!

I took a client there for lunch and it is definitely not like it used to be. None of the food we ordered was good except for the grilled octopus and even that was not as good as most other restaurants. Avoid the fish ceviche and breaded shrimp.
