Met up with a friend here for Cinco de Mayo. It was great. The server, Boris, is excellent (attentive & energetic) as always.
If reservation is outside they do not warranty it. Other times the did. Basically they do whatever they want to do. Do not have false expectations. They do care just about themselves instead of the customer.
Really poor management
The food was excellent and the outdoor ambiance was wonderful. However the service was not what you would hope for. The servers were very nice but they didn't seem to be trained well as things came out in the wrong order and there seemed to be constant confusion. But if you're prepared to have patience, it's an enjoyable experience.
Enjoyed the experience
Service was good
Loved the location next to the beach
The service and vibe are great. It’s all outdoors and there are fans which help with the heat. Boris the server is absolutely wonderful.
Food was mediocre. Drink were very good. The mango and watermelon margaritas are delicious. Will not be eating food there again. Low quality Mexican food.
A very LOWKEY spot the beach is right there so after dinner you can walk up and enjoy the waves , the food was amazing and so was the customer service !
Poor service and food was average
Great view, food and service
While all employees wore masks and respected social distance. The guests in general did not wear any masks and congregated freely.
The Guacamole was great!!!
Very good experience. Food was great and service was too
Spotty service at this beautiful location near the beach. Food was not great. I orderded chicken fajitas and they came cold. Never good for this kind of dish. Should have been sizzling. Tough to get water. asked several times. Other waiters do not help your table. One waiter per table!!! Will probably not be back.
Birthday for our 12th daughter got a wonderful preordered cake
It was very nice the place, close to the water but it was too cold and windy
Great experience with friendly staff who made the meal special. The food was well prepared and we had the fresh grilled fish sandwich and quesadilla both tasted great. The watermelon margarita is memorable and worth it to make the experience even better. The atmosphere of this restaurant is hard to beat being so open and comfortable. This is one of those special spots in Key Biscayne not to miss if you want a special occasion to remember. Keep up the great job!
This place is always good. Beachfront Mexican food under a giant tiki hut with great ambiance & service. Refined, yet relaxing atmosphere, typical of the Ritz. We go often & always enjoy it.
Great service, great food!
Mexican cuisine on the beach. What could be better. Freshly made guacamole was outstanding.
Excellent ambience and food. Great choice for those preferring outdoor dining.
We went back because our previous experience were fine! This time everything was very disappointing!
Staff is incredibly nice, food is great and can’t beat the view!
Guac was great, meal was not properly hot TEMP-wise.
We had good Mexican food here. Went for my husband’s birthday. We all agreed that while it was very good, the portion was smaller for the amount that they charge.
The ambiance is nice and the server was attentive.
So the setting is beautiful, it was a little windy but it’s literally on the Atlantic so you can complain. The food was amazing, I mean spectacular, my grip was the service. We were sat and then no one came to take even a drink order for 10 mins. Then we made our drink order, 2 of us stayed with water(I asked for some limes) and 1 ordered a Coke. 15 mins goes by and then the waiter comes back and asked if we wanted to put our order in and I was like hey where are the limes and his Coke, he did apologize and said I’ll be right back with it, 25 mins goes by, I’ve tried to flag down the waiter twice, another waiter once and the host who sat us and it was like I was clearly being ignored. I finally literally almost tripped someone to flag them and I was like what’s the deal, and she was like I’ll get it for you right now, a minute later out comes our food. So they made our meals before someone could walk out a small plate with limes and a can of Coca-Cola. 5 mins after our meal arrived so did the drink order. Just sad. We expected more in service. However the food and setting two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
The place is nice and stands facing the sea.
The pool nearby is also nice to look at.
The Mexican ambiance is holidays'oriented.
The food is ok. Pretty basic. But good enough for a beach lunch
Everything about our lunch was amazing! The service was excellent and the tacos were fabulous!
The menu is a bit limited, but overall service and experience was fantastic.
Food was very tasty the n a comfortable and casual setting. Our server William was amazing and incredibly fun and attentive!
Exceptional service!! Cannot wait to go back!
Nice place, nice music and ambiance to grab a drink and relax.
We expected the advertised online dinner menu, but instead it was a very simple and short menu, I suppose the lunch menue, served at dinner. Our server explained this was due to decreased demand due to covid/corona... I wish they would have updated the menues online. We came for a nice upscale dinner to celebrate a birthday, but instead had to settle for a simple and generic menue that wasn’t worth the price or drive.
This place is a hidden gem, loved the view, food was great!
I’ve been coming here for 12 years. Place is unique, never disappoints, beautiful ambiance, good food & service. Safe during covid times. We love it. Servers like Placido, Alberto & Lala are wonderful.
Food was very tasty. Enjoyed the fresh Guacamole!!
Fajitas were delicious 😋
Fantastic, safe, upscale yet relaxed, spacious, clean, delicious food, courteous staff. Beautiful hotel grounds. Ocean front. Love it.
Very nice setting, excellent service and good food.
Definitely a place to go to when in Key Biscayne`.
Must make a reservation.
Extremely hot. Terrible food. Expensive.
Great food and service. A little pricey, we could have easily shared portions but were not aware of size
Great place for dinner with kids! Fun to be on the beach - food is excellent and good kids menu!
