All foodies…beware of dinning on Ocean Drive in South Beach, Miami!

I didn’t listen…. I figured with all the hype about Lario’s being Gloria Estefan’s Cuban eatery – how bad could it possibly be.

It was really really bad!! This place is a classic tourist trap!

 

Lario’s is a great place to hang out at to knock back a few drinks and swing your hips to the booming Latin beats as the place turns into a makeshift salsa club. But if its good eats you are looking then this is not the place for you.

At Lario’s……the rhythm is gonna get you…not the food!!

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Enchilada De Camaron shrimp cuban criolla

Sándwich Cubano

Pescado A La Plancha

Frijoles Negros with Maduros (fried sweet plantains with cup of black beans)

Casa Tua, South Beach, FL

Casa Tua, South Beach, FL

 

Casa Tua on Urbanspoon

 

Food: ☆☆ ½

Service: ☆☆

Ambiance: ☆☆☆☆

Cost: $$$$

Dishes not to miss: Seared Lamb Chops

 

Casa Tua, is a delightful Italian-style eatery in the heart of South Beach, which is set in a gorgeous Mediterranean-style house/ hotel. This restaurant flows through various parts of the house, where each area is decorated with intimate elegance. We dined in the charming outdoor garden area.
 
Casa Tua lived up to my expectations in its ambience and charm but disappointed when it came to service and food. Most of the dishes just failed to impress. The seared lamb chops was the one dish that really stood out but the rest of the food fell rather flat. The service was rather unimpressive too. At a place like this, you expect to be indulged in every way – no such luck here.

For the price point and the hype, I really think Casa Tua was unsuccessful at reaching its true potentiality.

Here is some of what we ate:

 

SEARED LAMB CHOP

 

RICOTTA CAVATELLI


 

TAGLIOLINI WITH MAINE LOBSTER WHITE ASPARAGUS SAUCE


 

WARM CHOCOLATE MELTDOWN


 

ROSEMARY CRÈME BRULEE


 

VANILLA PANNA COTTA
