What can I say, outstanding, had no idea about the ownership or the history, pleasant surprise. Everything we ate was exceptional. I already sent recommendations to my family here and out of state. The experience is a MUST!!!! From the food to the wait staff to the greeter. You made our anniversary dinner one to remember.

What a special surprise to realize that a place that I LOVED from over 20 years ago happened to be a place that I picked for dinner with friends on a weekend get-a-way! Loved the renovation and the same great food, service and exciting ambiance.

An old friend it’s now a new one!!

Great place on SB. Food absolutely delicious and perfectly made. Drinks are good. Live band made it even better. Went with fiends and had a great time. Fired snapper is a must get as well as black bean dip.

Latinos On The Beach is always on my list to go to when I vacation in Miami. This month I returned with my sister and we were siestas outside and there was live music. It was such a nice treat. We also ordered the two person paella that I can not say enough wonderful things about. My favorite drink there is the Havana Mojito. Definitely do not miss this wonderful restaurant. .

Atmosphere, food, drinks, and service were all top notch! Highly recommend the Cuban Risotto and the award winning pulled pork meal! Authentic Cuban cuisine is fantastic when done right and it’s definitely done right here!

I enjoyed my, but the rest of my party thought their meals were ho-hum. Between the music being too loud and the boisterous large party sitting next to us, we wish we had gone elsewhere.

Our expectations were high but we were disappointed. The food was ok but certainly not outstanding.
I ordered a glass of white wine to begin then asked for a glass of red to accompany my meal, it was poured into the same glass! The cutlery was not changed between courses, this is not really acceptable especially how expensive it is.

The facility is very nice and in the heart of Ocean Drive. However, their are a plethora of Cuban dining establishments in South Beach that provide a better meal. Again, you are paying to dine in the area and the meal will not disappoint, but understand that this is not the best Cuban food in the area.

We loved the food, service and atmosphere. The ceviche and crispy whole fish were excellent, as were the baked empanadas - and great Mojitos. Our server, Alveny, was super - friendly and helpful, as was the whole staff. People watching is great from the outdoor tables, and the dining room inside is very pretty. We were only in Miami Beach for 24 hours and liked this place so much when we had dinner there that we went back for lunch the next day.

This was our first time at Larios on the Beach and it was wonderful. We were celebrating our friend from Chicago 50th birthday. The live band was very entertaining and the food was very flavorful. Also the customer service was excellent. Overall it was great a experience.

Larios on the beach is amazing. My husband and I ate dinner there on Collins Ave. We sat outside to enjoy the scene and it was still romantic. The service was exceptional. The drinks and the food were beyond amazing. The food was very tasteful. Overall - I would love to come back here again!

Delicious food. We tried the Cuban side menu items and loved every bite! The only negative thing we can say about the visit was how long it took for our server to come back to our table for us to order. So long that we had to order with another server who was assisting another table. She did a wonderful job.

As a legit Cuban, the food was DELICIOUS! Just like my mom used to cook! We enjoyed the tostones rellenos, croquetas the jamon, empanadas, mariquitas, and then went on to have full entrees! Every bite was great! Food arrived quickly. Mojito was good.. The manager came by to check with us and all the tables around us sitting in front patios to see that all was good. Could not have enjoyed it more!!
