Larios on the Beach Ratings and Reviews
We loved Larios. Went for lunch 2 days in a row. Fantastic Mojito. I had the traditional. Salads were very good. I recommend dining here if you are looking for good food in South Beach. Dat inside one day and outside the next. Our server Miguel was the best.
Even though the restaurant was not crowded, it took 30 minutes for the server to take our drink order, another 20 minutes to bring the drinks. He was inattentive from start to finish. It was a two hour lunch that didn't feel leisurely because we were always looking for the waiter.
I hosted a Bachlorette dinner here, there was 7 of us. I wasn't impressed with the food. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Wasn't particularly fond of the floury empanada shells. But that seems to be how they're made in Miami. The place is absolutely beautiful, I wasn't disappointed with ambience. The flavored mojitos where phenomenal as well. I would definitely come back for the guava mojitos on my next visit.
We didn't go. I made reservations at 10pm but we got traffic on the way and I saw that we were going to be late and I attempted to call to see if I can change the time and no one answered the phone. I called multiple times and no answer. I asked the uber driver to drop us off around the block because it would have been faster for us to walk there but when we arrived there was a huge crowd and the police were also there. We didn't even attempt to walk through that huge crowd. My boyfriend had plans to propose to me at your restaurant and he proposed to me somewhere else. So not a good experience especially since we didn't even get to go.
This was an introduction to Cuban food for us so we got the Tour de Cuba dish which was a sampler and had traditional pork, chicken and beef. You can choose two out of six sides. We picked Moro rice (combo of rice and black beans) and the sweet plantains. The chicken was a little dry though still tasty. The pork was excellent and if there's a next time, that's what I'll choose. The Moro rice was so good I kept eating it even though I was stuffed!
Hard to tell about the overall feel of the place because we were there early with few customers, but we enjoyed the experience.
Nos dieron reserva a las 22.15 de la noche sin saber q cerraban a las 23h. Restaurante vacío y sin embargo llegamos 10 min tarde y la encargada ya había anulado la reserva.A mitad de cena pedimos una segunda cerveza y no nos la trajeron porque el encargado de las bebidas había cerrado las neveras de la cerveza y se habia llevado las llaves a su casa😶. En 45 min ya teníamos el café y la cuenta en la mesa
Waiter got us a round of drinks and the appetizer we order then went 30 minutes without checking on us. When he finally did and I asked why it took him so long to take our entree order he said. "I thought you were only having drinks." When I pointed out that we finished our drinks almost 30 minutes ago and the menus were still on the table he shrugged his shoulders and said "What can I get you?" No apology.
Rice and beans were also very dry. Will not be returning, ever!
Full disclosure: I adore Gloria & the MSE. So the idea of eating at her restaurant was too perfect not to do, and outside the norm nontourist foodie pick. So expect her music along with lots of poppy 70s. Expect things to be glitzy south beach. Expect crowds. And expect delicious, solid well crafted Cuban cuisine. Had the 3 empanadas and the black beans and rice, and it rivals anyone else's. Expect to have fun, enjoy!
We had high hope for delicious Cuban food and boy were we disappointed. The Cuban sandwich was cold and just didn't taste right. Also got the pork sliders which didn't taste good at all. Sent the whole dish back and they didn't seem to mind that I didn't like it. It's been three hours and my stomach just doesn't feel right. The coffee was delicious though!
