My friend and I were in Miami and wanted to try something delicious and different. The food at this restaurant was amazing and so much fun to experience. We did the Journey menu, I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a fancy night with a unique experience! The chocolate massage in the beginning for you hands was delicious and will keep your hands soft all night!!

Outsatanding service. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. They pay attention to every detail, flexible with the tasting menu and the wine paring. They serve every course respecting the right timing and providing the proper explanation. The Expiriece menu is well designed and it has an adequate balance respecting the product and it’s colombians roots. It’s envolved every senses - including eat liquid chocolat with you own hands!!! Delicious !!! The only aspect that they have to improve is the wine list, although they do a great job with the wine paring

Me and my girlfriend had a good time until it hs gotten to the point where we were heading to our last course. The manager presented the check without asking for any coffee or tea and we felt uncomfortable having 2 staffs just being ready to clear the table and hoping we would leave soon even before 11pm.

El Cielo is far from being a top tasting menu restaurant. I can name 20 restaurants that I have been to that are "real" tasting menu experiences. El Cielo makes small servings of "good/regular", but common food and calls it a tasting menu.

The food was amazing !!! Great wine tasting also. Great atmosphere . The waitress was not happy that we asked for the Miami Spice menu though or the wine tasting that was On The Miami Spice Menu. We had never been to the restaurant and actually saw it on Miami Spice which made us feel uncomfortable. Why sign up for Miami Spice if you don’t really want to participate? They also didn’t have any nitrogen for the end of our experience which we were really looking forward to. Maybe it wasn’t part of Miami Spice ? We paid for it . Hmmmm.....

Unfortunately I would not recommend this location. Service is lacking. However; if you find yourself in 🇨🇴 Colombia; the Medellin location is outstanding. With waiters I that actually know the food, and are professionals in their field.

Juan Manuel did a fantastic job with his creations. Probably inspired by Barcelona cuisine with his own personal colombian touch....
Will come back again for sure.
I’d like to see him stop by the tables next time.
