This is a great place on the Miami River. The mixed salad and mixed seafood dish was excellent and good size portion. Three of us shared a salad, soup and the seafood meal for two and had leftovers. The view of boats passing by is very nice.

Food and service, as always, were terrific. It’s such a great spot as you are literally sitting on the water.

Nice restaurant with a beautiful setting on Miami river. The food was excellent. It is the place that has the best stone crab claws in Miami. We loved the coconut shrimp tempura! And Oysters were great.

We liked all appetizers that we ordered. They were really delicious. But oysters were opened badly with small pieces of shell inside also they didn’t cut it and didn’t clean it well... We ordered Casablanca Grilled Parrillada : 90% of this plate were calamari, without any sauce it really hard to eat and taste was not so good...

It has been years since my last visit but now that my kids live nearby I will a regular. Service was great. Food delicious. Fresh oyster were perfection. The view entertaining. The only con is that the dining area is a little cramped.

The staff was very friendly and efficient. The seafood was well prepared and not overdone but a little bland. I had the seafood risotto and the risotto was clumpy and also a little bland. My daughter had the steak chimichurri and she said it was extremely salty and over-seasoned and the chimichurri was more oil than anything else. My son had the grouper fried fish sandwich and he said it was good. We sat outside and it was a very nice covered area with a view of the river. The desserts were very good - key lime pie, guava cheesecake, and flan. Overall a nice night and for the price the food was good.

While visiting Miami, it was fun to dine outside and enjoy the view including the boat activity on the river. We enjoyed having a very good variety of delicious fresh seafood including our first taste of stone crab claws which are in season now. This restaurant was strongly recommended by our travel book and we now know why!

On a five day quicky to Miami, after a few recommendations from locals, I decided to treat my wife to what was described as one of the best seafood establishments in the area. They were not wrong. We were blown away by the service, the atmosphere, the taste and romance of sitting outside the Miami River watching a wonderful sunset fall on downtown Miami. The Stone crabs are in season, grab them while you can. We did while enjoying Sangria's and Mojitos during Happy Hour. We rounded out dinner sharing a Paella Casablanca which was cooked to perfection... melt in your mouth shrimp, mussels and calamari was truly a treat mixed with the chicken and saffron rice. The Food, The River, The Ambiance, The Boats traveling the waterway made this a special place we will definitely return to.

I have been here a few times and it has always been excellent. My last visit was a little disappointing. It was very hot. There were no fans on my table and the food was not as good as usual maybe they were just having an off night. The octopus was very hard in more than one dish.
Also I arrived at 8 o’clock for an 8 o’clock reservation. There was four people that arrived at the same time and they got a better table without a reservation.

It was our first visit & we were very pleased. Our waitress. Ámbra was outstanding, immediately welcome us & was very attentive throughout, I have to say, I was impressed with overall service. Food was very good & made to order. Drinks were good but overpriced in my opinion. Hope to be back soon

The service was excellent and the food was very good. The noise level was high as there appeared to be several large parties. Finally, a huge boat docked which completely blocked the view and breeze unfortunately. Beyond that, I would venture there again on a week night.

It really is a beautiful experience sitting right on the Miami River watching million Dollar yachts go by.
It was a Saturday night maybe an off night as soon as we walked in, the hostess, which was an older mature lady (who I’m not knocking because that’s what I am) but she immediately said that I didn’t have any reservations.
I have never had a problem with my open table reservations. Luckily another hostess came by and noted that my name was definitely there.
The food was average. Granted it is very fresh fish and seafood but the tuna that I ordered was just lacking in flavor and I ordered it rare it still was a little bit more overcooked. My sauce for my tuna entree was delivered when l was almost finished eating.
Sides were awful.
Our waiter would not come by our table but luckily the bus boy would be the one that was very helpful. I don’t think I’m going back there for a long time

I wrongly assumed it was going to be the perfect place for lunch but the service was super slow. Even when we order the check they took forever to check us out.
