Finally this corner in South Miami gets exciting again, we have a good feeling about it, knowing that the people behind this project have experience in the restaurant business.
We had the chance to go, take a look inside and talk to the Bar Manager Michael Albuerne and Executive Chef Pedro Jerez.

These 2 professionals made a few cocktails, some apps, entrees, and desserts for us to try and photograph. We must say that you won't be disappointed, the execution and balance in dishes and food was admirable, and let's not forget prices, properly priced ($12 cocktails $11 for apps, that's well balanced too).

Another part to our reviews are the atmosphere and ambience levels, which is a huge part of the business, apart from food or service. On ambience we could score it at a 8 out of 10, the decor is at an 8 (it misses ligthing on frames and walls). They just opened, so they would probably get that done soon.... in the meantime, we totally recommend it!


Price Range: $9-$35
Address: 5894 Sunset Drive, South Miami, FL 33143
