Mexican
The decoration of the restaurant has been carefully selected from the most important craftsmen of Mexico. We enjoy its colors, within the geometry of Mexican Art Deco architecture; framing through its brilliant black and golden colors the splendor of its magic.
With the leading role, we have our monumental bars along with one of the larges tequila and mezcal selection in town and our bar manager created delicious and sophisticate cocktails.
Every cantina is a cultural expression of the place where it is found.
Gastronomy-wise, we have an extensive menu of Mexican Cuisine dishes, offering representative dishes of each state of the country, with traditional techniques and recipes (handmade tortilla, sauces made in a molcajete ), along with avant-garde techniques such as vacuum cooking, spherification, foam, etc. We constantly update our menu and the chef’s recommendations with new and top quality ingredients.

ONLY our Brunch Menu served Sundays between 12:30PM-4PM

Muy agradable el lugar, cuando llegamos tenían nuestra reservación sin problemas a tiempo. A pesar que el lugar estaba lleno la atención fue bastante rápida. El guacamole como entrada muy rico, como platos fuertes molcajete de pastor y de rib eye y carnitas muy buenos los tres platos. La decoración esta bonita y hubo música en vivo con mariachis. Todos fueron muy atentos y Ariana quien nos atendió muy atenta y alegre. Definitivamente un lugar al que regresaría

We were here the day after Halloween and the restaurant was wonderfully decorated! We enjoyed our appetizers which were tasty and attractive. The prawn main was also delicious. The mole chicken may have been better with less sauce. The coconut flan was smooth and rich.

The ambiance is fantastic. Music, mariachi, fun decor. Large menu for everyone to choose from. The drink menu is extensive as well with specialty tequilas and mezcals. The food was delicious, authentic Mexican flavors with an upscale twist.

The food was even better than expected. Who knew beets could taste that good?! The margarita was great - the guac was superb (perfect chips!) - and the venue outdoors, downstairs bayside was quintessential Miami. This place really outperforms! Did I mention the tacos? Can’t wait to return!

We expected a little more. We were sat downstairs so we
couldn’t experience the mariachis. Also, the service brought us the wrong drink twice.

The waiter had an attitude and everyone at the table noticed. The lunch menu on the website is completely different than the one provided. I was told that the restaurant no longer serves the set lunch menu. This restaurant regularly makes menu changes, and every time I've eaten there this year it has caused me an issue. Whether it be brunch, lunch, or dinner there's always some change that has either not been told to the staff or is not updated on the website. I've let things slide as I really enjoy the food, but the fact that every time this year has been an issue, shows that there's a severe management/communication problem. I don't plan on dining here again.

Absolutely loved the ambience,food, and the service! I would recommend to any family or friend! I can’t wait to come back because their service was better than almost any other place in Miami. The manager was able to sit us where we wanted to and I appreciated that!

Visiting Brickell area for combined business and pleasure trip. We made reservations at Cantina La Veinte. Our host provided a table at the windows with a beautiful view overlooking the water. And the magic started from there. We ordered the three course tasting menu for restaurant week. Everything was delicious. Incredible balance of flavors. The room decor is very well done. Modern with touches of authentic culture. Highly recommend!

i will be back! this is a chain based in mexico city with now 8 branches. nice fresh made tortilla chips and tomatillo and casera salsas. a taste of some tomato broth in a mug also offered. ordered a rum martini, the loco mariachi. had the miami spice 3 course menu including delicious sopes de pollo, kind of like pupusas on a flaky phyllo dough cup, with queso blanco and herbs and chicken. next for the main course was an arm of grilled octopus, which was fine, though i didn't want the pineapple sauce on the side. for dessert there was a piece of pistachio cake.
the interior is decorated with lots of mexican bric a brac and art, and to the jaliscan waiter i suggested they could add an ornate terra cotta nativity set, made by indian tribes from jalisco state.
this was a lunch meal, but at dinner they have a pianist every night from 8-10 providing entertainment, and the downstairs wing has live music and dancing every wednesday night

It is not what it used to be. Sunday lunch/brunch only served on lower level without A/C under a plastic roof. Tables and placemats were dirty, sloppy service.

It was ok, little over priced ,food quality was ok. Looked like they were trying to hard on the decor. A little 80s night club meets cantina fashionista. If you like that style more power to you! Not our cup of tea

The food is exceptional. Excellent crab tacos, excellent "gorditas". The octopus was fine but would have been better if cut in smaller pieces... The shrimp tacos were excellent too.

Mariachis charges $20 per song. Other people complained to manager too. He just asked us to go back to our tables and sit. Really? not even I am sorry.
Two tables with same issue left the restaurant

Great location with awesome views and decor, good attentive service without being intrusive. Good food but more Latino interpretations of Mexican food than true Mexican but very good if on the small side for a hungry party. Will be back with friends.

Beautiful views. Pretty decor. Food was just fine, too salty for our tastes, but nothing to write home about. Staff were all very pleasant but service was insistent. Eg, had to ask for a fork when we were seated, had to wait to get someone’s attention more than once, our table wasn’t given chips at the beginning. Parking was also a problem. It had been raining and the entrance had several,puddles. Stepped in puddle literally stepping out of car when we arrived. The electronic/text valet retrieval system was not working.

I have been a regular visitor to Miami for more than 12 years, and Catiina La Veinte is my absolute favorite restaurant to take my guests. We celebrated a wonderful birthday of two family members in the restaurant, and it was an experience they will never forget. The hostess, wait and management staff are amazing. Always! There is no better authentic, gourmet Mexican food in Miami. This stop is EVERYTHING fun about Miami life!
