According to Zagat:

“This massive waterfront bistro in Edgewater spotlights charcoal-fired fare made in a Josper oven. The posh dining room sports floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a deck overlooking Biscayne Bay.”

According to The Observer:

“The menu, which features an eclectic bunch of Latin American dishes, is mostly cooked using wood-fire grills and Josper charcoal ovens.”

I will NOT recommend this place for large parties... I chose this venue to celebrate my birthday based on the concierge's recommendation, the place is beautiful with gorgeous views, but they are very complicated; service was very slow (perhaps as it was busy) and our server was not welcoming, we were a party of 10 and they charged us $44 to cut a cake! It wouldn't had been a problem if the sever would had advised us that there was a cake fee; in addition to that, they won't split the check in more than 4 cards which made it difficult for all of us to pay.

Great place for brunch with the view. The menu not as big of a choice, very limited. For 4 of us we paid $110 with cocktails and no service charge. Service itself was good.

This place does everything right. First the service at the hostess stand, then the bar and the amazing drinks, the wait staff was both attentive and knowledgeable, the food was delicious. Last but not least, the location on the water with lounge seats to finish the night. It's beautifully decorated for a calm tropical oasis. Definitely get a table outside overlooking the water if you can.

5 stars in everything, food, service, ambiance and music! Hard for restaurants in Miami to get all those right. Can’t wait to come back.... everything we tried was delicious but I recommend the spicy shrimp and the Cohiba. Thanks Amara for not being cheesy and putting a unique gourmet spin on every Latin American dish on your menu. Love you!

First time here for brunch and I loved it! Decor is very posh, food is great. I admire the a la cart options and how they come around to each table at different points throughout the morning. Staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to meet customer needs. My husband and I will be back for sure.
