  • Big Pink

    You will most likely have to wait for a table at this popular South Beach restaurant, but it is highly recommended. Everything is big, from the menu selection to the portion sizes, and Big Pink is open for all three meals ‐ even until 5am on Friday and Saturday nights. They offer a breakfast menu available anytime and their veggie burger with sweet potato fries is the best we’ve had on the Beach.

  • Yardbird

    This southern style restaurant is a favorite with South Beach locals. Open for lunch and dinner daily, this restaurant serves up classics such as chicken and biscuits, shrimp po' boys, and blackened catfish, along with an assortment of beers on tap and specialty cocktails.

  • Joe's Stone Crab

    Seafood is an essential part of the food scene in Miami, and if you're a fan of crab, you'll be a fan of Joe's. Heading into its 100th year of service, Joe's is a South Beach staple. However, there is no beach attire allowed, all patrons must have sleeves of some kind, so leave the tank tops and the flip flops at your hotel for this one.

  • Casa Tua

    Hidden amongst shrubs and trees with hanging lantern, Casa Tua is a nice respite from the usual South Beach atmosphere. This quaint, rustic Italian restaurant isn't cheap, but the food and the decor are well worth the bill. If you would like a table, make sure to book in advance for weekends as space is limited. If you decided to try your luck walking in, there is a communal Chef's Table that overlooks all the happenings of the kitchen that might suit your fancy.

  • Lido Restaurant & Bayside Grill

    The Lido Restaurant & Bayside Grill is the perfect addition to The Standard Spa Hotel, and one that you can enjoy whether you're staying there or not. This relaxed restaurant over looks Biscayne Bay and serves Mediterranean dishes in line with the hotel's theme of health and wellness.

  • Puerto Sagua

    • 700 Collins Avenue
    • Miami Beach, FL 33139
    • +1 (786) 623-4122

    This quaint diner keeps tourists and locals coming back for more with their authentic Cuban cuisine in large portions for reasonable prices. Open 7 days a week from breakfast until late, it’s the perfect spot whether you want cafe con leche and breakfast or late night munchies and sangria.

  • Toni's Sushi

    If you're craving classic sushi, Toni's is your place. Located in the heart of South Beach, this restaurant has your Japanese food staples covered. Using the freshest ingredients, it's no wonder South Beach's second oldest restaurant is still in business.

  • La Sandwicherie

    La Sandwicherie’s traditional French sandwiches, famous vinaigrette, fresh smoothies, and unbeatable prices will leave you wanting to come back for more. The location only offers minimal counter seating, so it is more of a place to grab and go, or eat while standing, than for a sit-down dining experience.

  • Lime Fresh Mexican Grill

    This restaurant only needs two words to get us hooked - Healthy Mexican. That’s right; Lime Fresh uses organic local ingredients, humanely raised meat, and has vegetarian, low-carb, and low-fat options.

  • Barton G the Restaurant

    This posh restaurant’s menu items more closely resemble carnival-style works of art than food. The drinks appear to be steaming, due to liquid nitrogen popsicles, and every appetizer, entrée, and dessert comes with its own playful presentation.

  • Jimmy'z Kitchen

    Mainly offering a wide selection of Panini, salads, and sandwiches, Jimmy’z also offers a number of daily specials ranging from seafood to steak and lamb chops. However, this café is most known for their Mofongo, a traditional Afro-Boricua dish.
