A word from The Pelican Cafe
The PELICAN CAFE is a Miami Beach landmark. Since its opening in 1994 it has been a popular gathering place for international travelers, music and fashion mavens, designers and most importantly for Miami Beach locals. The Pelican Cafe offers an oasis of casual dining with a sophisticated menu of new Italian fare. The Pelican Cafe is without any doubt the best destination for great food and service in Ocean Drive and Miami Beach. It has been lauded by Giada de Laurentis (Food Network) as a must for breakfast and "Best Restaurant for Lunch" by Miami New Times, Best of Miami 2008. You will also enjoy our great cocktails as well as our wine list, noteworthy for its superb variety and value. The Pelican Cafe is located in the famous Pelican Hotel owned by the edgy Italian fashion company Diesel. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "First time in cafe pelican! The food was soo good really ! Service are very friendly ! A little bit expensive but good and services are really good!"

  • "Dined on a Saturday night in Feb with 2 other girlfriends on the recommendation of another friend. Early dinner (around 7), so pretty quiet still. Gorgeous setting, table up away from busy sidewalk but still outside, with open view of beautiful interior. Shared a salad (delicious!), the shrimp pesto pasta (ridiculously fabulous), and a pizza (mediocre). Drinks weren't too pricey, but also weren't overwhelmingly wonderful (mojitos and caipirahnas). Considering how pricey it is to eat in Miami, we got a pretty good value - plenty of good food to eat without breaking the bank. Will definitely be back."

  • "I haved dined at the Pelican a half dozen times, twice with my wife, and the food and service are consistently good. When I am traveling to Miami, I always make a point of visiting the Pelican. The paella is a personal favorite. Spend the extra amount and add the lobster tail. It is a good dish to share with your loved one. The oysters on the half shell are also delicious. they are on the large size. Ask to be seated on the veranda. It is perfect for people watching while enjoying the ocean breeze."

  • "Great location, vibrant atmosphere, good-looking people. fantastic fireworks and lots of music that helped melt together the picturesque crowd of Ocean Drive in South Beach. However, food and beverages were a real disaster and service was nothing to write home about... The menu was limited (my wife has an allergy to seafood and mushrooms and she almost could not find anything to eat), quantities small and some of our choices actually tasted bad or were either overcooked or too cold to be served. The first bottle of wine was undrinkable and sent back, the second and third were below average for their price. Not much of a choice for wines."

  • "Been here multiple times, always for Brunch and it's always been outstanding. Plus as is the custom in Miami you usually see someone known while you eat. Always a great place."
