Food and Service were great! Waitress was very attentive and made some excellent recommendations. Our only issue was the drinks were small, water downed and overpriced. The other part which the restaurant can’t control, is the smell outside. Smelled like dead fish when you sat in their outside seating area. Overall the place was nice,the food was delicious and the ambiance was very lively. The view was also very nice since it’s right on the water. If we went back we would order a beer since that seemed to be priced the most reasonable.

Outstanding dinner. Sat outside on the deck right next to the water. Happy Hour drinks (Mohitas were super) followed by a dozen Oysters on the half shell and a wonderful seared tuna dinner. Topped it off with a Cuban coffee and Flan. Would recommend it to anyone.

Went on Wednesday night and they have free shucked oysters, WOW!, loved them. Had no idea and it was great. If you are looking for true seafood this is the place. I had the sizzling Octopus and it was fantastic. My friend had the lobster bisque that had a full lobster tail in it not just pieces of lobster. Might be a bit overpriced but heck if you are looking to get the true grit of seafood this is the place. And you will not be disappointed. The service is the best.

I don’t know if it was, because December 31, but the food was cold it took forever to come, they brought cold plate with the hot main plate and it was cold, I had dessert included but I had to ask for it, they just brought the check and didn’t offer my included dessert, asked to talk to the manager but he didn’t come to the table, I had to go and get him.

Price have increased considerably with them being a la par with other nicer restaurants. Quality of good is ok but nothing spectacular. The place is very noise and a conversation among 4 was hard to hear. Service was decent although we heard a few glass and plates crashing on the floor. It is a miracle more accidents do not happen given the tight corridors on the outside area. The place is ok for lunch but for dinner, better places exist.

One the best seafood restaurants we had tried while in Miami. My son got a steak that was done to perfection while my wife and I had fish dishes. Each was a good as the the other. Our server was spot on in his suggestions and advice. It was Xmas evening and very full though attention to service and detail was maintained throughout our dinner. Valet parking was an added bonus and very reasonable (7$). In summary the fish was fresh and done perfectly and service was embracing. One of the best meal we had in our 8 day stay in the area.

In queste giornate di inverno a Miami non c’è posto più bello da ammirare a bellissima vista del River Miami e dove si può mangiare meglio che il Casablanca , per non parlare del servizio dei ragazzi , simpatici , professionali e anche molto carini 😉😉 super raccomando

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.

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...

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.

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.
