From the moment you enter EI Tucán, you are transported to a mystical world designed to stimulate and indulge all the senses. As the night progresses, the tropical and glamorous atmosphere evolves into an intimate and seductive dance party amidst lush foliage and images of wild animals in the Amazon rainforest.
A new state-of-the-art Pioneer DJ/Pro Audio sound system will enhance the experience, along with one-of-a-kind, advanced LED wall displays around the DJ booth and second floor balcony with tropical images that create a magical atmosphere and build momentum as the party evolves into the late-night house as the resident DJ sets the mood for what’s bound to be an unforgettable night.
While the design and food alone are enough to satisfy even the most discerning guests, it is the nonstop energy and electric, sensory atmosphere at El Tucán that will keep them coming back for more…
It was such a great experience. I celebrated my bday there with my friends..... The staff was attentive and entertaining. They made sure we were taken care of by making sure our cups were never empty and there was always a smile on my face. I will definitely be back soon.
Great place to go for a girls or boys night out/datenight/friends as the food is amazingly good and the performances during the dinner service is phenomenal. I felt like I didn't know if I wanted to eat or dance more. Service, presentation, and taste of the food made we want to order everything (but I did eat well).
A sexy, fun place to let your hair down and party! Preferably on a weekend or vacation day as you'll need to sleep late the next day.
We came for dinner with expectations to see the show, but only from our server we found that show doesn’t start till after 10.
Restaurant was pretty much empty at 8pm, 15 (counted) staff members standing throughout the place in waiting mode.
Food was good though.
Ridiculously expensive and very uncomfortable seating in the back of the room. Show short and mostly a DJ!
it was a very funny experience
it a different place tu dinner
you can dance and see a good show
A las 3am nos prendieron La Luz y nos sacaron, argumentando que había poca gente cuando en la entrada nos dijeron que terminaba a las 4 o 5 am, lógico nos obligaron a comprar botella, misma que no se acabó porque no respetan los horarios, en todo lo demás muy bueno!!!
Overall the food and atmosphere was good and a nice first time experience, just a few disappointments. First off the seating was not the best, as soon as the hostess seated us I made her aware that I was not satisfied with where they placed it. We were at the very end of the restaurant in which we could barely see the stage, when she then moved us upstairs the view was a bit better but there were other people standing over me and my partner which was very annoying. Secondly, obviously we were the only African Americans in the room which was fine until the party host began to speak Spanish. I felt as if they only paid attention to there Latin based guest, they never translated for us to understand and it made it very difficult to enjoy. I don’t have a problem listening to Hispanic music, I’m from Miami but they did not consider if they had guest that did not understand and barley played a different genre of music. Lastly, when I originally looked online it showed they had 3 menu options, $50, $85, and $105. When they server gave us the menu it only showed the $85 and $105. Unfortunately For us he paid more attention to the Hispanic guest so he never really got a chance to even speak to us. He sent another server that only spoke Spanish. The food was okay but not $85 worth. I’ve went to nicer restaurants and got a larger portion for less. When we finally received our bill gratuity was over $40, which was bad because I don’t feel like the service we got was even $10. I did not complain because of course we went to have a good time and the money was not the issue, but it wasn’t what the server even deserved. A lot of my friends and family have been asking about it and honestly I’m not even comfortable recommending it to anyone. I was a bit disappointed.
The Tulcan is a good place to try once. The show is entertained but far from being a top notch show. The food is excellent but it is is very pricier as the drinks are not included and they are about 40% more expensive like other places in Brickell. Again. Good to try it once.
Second time here, we had an OK time, but it has deteriorated much since the first time, service was slow, the place now is packed with tables and it's former exclusive vibe is now gone.. I missed the old Tucán and the live band, now it's just like any other club in the areas with a forgettable cabaret show... ohh well.. will not be back ... not worth the price anymore.... not enough latín vibe here ..
It was a romantic dinner
We had a fun time with entertainment but We could not eat the food cause it was all very was cold. 😞
We had a great experience at El Tucán.At our arrival we were greeted by one of the performers taken to our table by the hostess,our waiter was absolutely wonderful,the food was very good.Unfortunately we got a table with obstructing view which wouldn’t allow us to truly enjoy the show,and the cocktails(Mojitos)were not as good,the bar should work a bit more on that.Still a very enjoyable night.Congrats on the service one of the best in Miami.
Great fun. Food mediocre at best. Good wine selection. The venues attempt at trying to feed everyone at the same time to stay on schedule resulted in bland, cold and, generally, poorly presented food. So long as you go for the entertainment and not the meal your expectations will be fine.
Very fun night. Food is good but everything was very expensive. It is Miami and there is a show so it's worth it.
IT WAS SO HOT I COULD NOT EVEN BREATHE. I thought it was just me but when I saw my 23 year old daughter with a really bad face and she didn’t whant t complain cause is was my birthday.....poor thing she was so close to a panic attack do to how HOT is was
We asked not to be sat by the speakers up and we even waited extra time to still be sat next to the speakers. Other than that everything was perfect
This was my. 3rd time and this time with Miami spice . Fantastic value for money!
The show, socially this lady who n'a de me
Think of the virus du soleil performances and the salsa group and then at the end the DJ excellent!
Definitely I recommend this place! We were 6 friends and had an amazing time!
Miami needs more places like this! A true Gem, I'm almost jealous I didn't come up with the brilliant idea to create this place myself. I applaud the owner for this venture and hope it retains lasting success. Staff was very kind and accommodating, attentive as well! Love El Tucan and I can't wait to return for another performance. Meals could be fresher and better prepared, however that won't stop me from returning!
Extremely dissappointed from the seating, wait time even with a reservation, service and pricing. It was my mother's bday and I wanted to surprise her with a glam night in the heart of Miami and it was the worst place I could have ever taken her. AWEFUL! The service and the pricing were incoherent and the seating was horrible for 5 people. I would never go back to that horrible place!
First of all: The negative comments are absolutely unwarranted. This place is spectacular, what a show! We did not expect this! So much talent! We were so mesmerized by the performances that at times we could not look down on our plates to eat, because we feared missing a single moment of the show. And when we got to taste our food we were surprised how delicious it was! I could taste Peruvian and Mexican flavors. And yes, it takes long to get seated. And yes the service is slow. But that is beside the point because what you get here you get nowhere in Miami, so the wait is worth it. If what you are looking for is some quiet gourmet dinner place where the waiter spends a lot of time talking to you and responding to your needs, I am sure you will find many places like that in Miami. But nowhere else in Miami will you find anything like this vibrant spectacle that will leave you in awe. And yes, it is expensive, and they charge 20% gratuity like many other places in Miami. Well, it is a small place, and there are many, amazingly talented performers who need to be paid. It is worth it. And back to the show, yesterday, the highlight was this lady with a powerful soulful voice, reminiscent of Aretha Franklin, who captivated the audience as she sang and walked around the tables while performing songs that left everybody ecstatic and full of admiration for her talent. Other performers also navigated around the tables while performing and engaging the audience one-on-one in their act. A Cuban singer had the perfect voice for salsa and merengue songs , other performances were a bit risqué, showing some skin, but mature cosmopolitan people can appreciate the different musical expressions and teasing of our senses. One sexy, gymnast, contortionist lady achieved an almost impossible Cirque-De-Soleil-like act. You will have to see it to believe it. We will be going back!
The food, atmosphere, people, service and talent were all excellent. I look forward to going again and would recommend it highly.
Amazing experience. I can't believe more people in Miami are not talking about it
The drinks at the bar were expensive. Meal was just right! Girls night out we had a blast!
Worst experience ever while dinning in Miami. We love going to new places and go out a lot for dinner in Miami, there are always places you like better than others, but our experience in el tucan was HORRIBLE and would never recommend anyone to come here. The worst experience we had in all our years in Miami. The food was just average, the show was just okay with some parts too vulgar and service was aweful. Starters took over an hour to come out, and the rest of the food took "only" about 45 minutes. We had a horrible time and just wanted to leave. Had to wait 30 minutes for to get someone to bring us the check and then no one would come back to take our c. cards, we had to go down and ask the hostess to charge us, she left with our c card and we had to wait 30 minutes for her to come back with the receipt. I really dont understand who comes back here, we had out worst night out ever, will not come back nor recommend this place to anyone.
This place was awesome. Full of energy and great entertainment. I enjoyed my birthday very much.
The show was amazing. The ambience stunning. Service...needs improvement. The food did not come out as ordered, they forgot 3 dishes of the 4 appetizers and the main course was forgotten completely and had remind the server because she had even checked if we had received it.
The food was good.
However, it would have been nice hat when you asked for water they would have told you they charge you $10 a bottle for still water.
The rest of the experience was fun, again with the exception of hardcore definelty needs some love I that department.
Alice just found her wonderland! An amazing night!
The food is great! Very tasty. However, too pricey
This was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. They sat my party upstairs. It was so hot and the food took so long and was not good. The drinks also took longer than the food. The music and show was nice but it was not worth it to done there. I would not go back...
Stupendous ambience, Outstanding entertainment, incredible live band, and exquisite food taste. If you want to feel Miami's vibes.....This is the place!
Está muy agradable el lugar. La comida buena y muy original. Excelente velada.
When it comes to payment they add automatically 20% " auto gratutiy", when you ask to reduce this they tell you is there procedure. I have to pay 47 Dollar for the service - redicules, the should inform up front then you keep you bill small, tourist trap!!!
Not up to expectations, service and food were not average compared to the actual value an cost.
Fun place to go to with a group of friends. TIP IS INCLUDED in the check.
What an amazing experience, from the food to the performances it was a spectacular night. The service was amazing the food was top notch even down to the chips it was delicious
The place is awesome!! A little moulin rouge. Perfect entertainment for everyone. The singers are amazing, dancers are awesome! A little bit of everything in the show! The band was perfect!! I loved the place!
2nd or 3rd visit already - show always a bit different each time and menu also presenting regularly changes. Good international cuisine and fun show - only downside is price but nothing is cheap in Miami nowadays!
This is the only place in Miami where you feel elsewhere . As soon as you push the ent
Went on a Thurs night to celebrate my anniversary. Rec'd a warm welcome, gracious service, in a lovely old world glamorous setting! Special kudos to the female showgirl/MC who kept the burlesque show rolling and made the evening fun. However the real gem of the night was the fabulous band Rum and Coffee that entertained late into the night! Had a wonderful evening and will definitely go again...and again.
