Don Camarón

The ideal spot for a good meal and a good time. Must-have items on the menu include the finger-licking camaron a la francesa (shrimp in a parmesan cream sauce, served with Hawaiian plantains), salmon cilantro, and the traditional seafood rice dish, paella. Stop by the outside bar for happy hour and light bites with occasional live music.

El Palacio de los Jugos

Not a fancy sit-down restaurant per-se, but more like a Cuban Thanksgiving all year-round. Enter the palace of steaks, seafood, soups, seasonal fruits, juices and more. No need to wait for the food to be ready, it’s already displayed behind large glasses, to make guests extra hungry, and offers large portions for a affordable price.

La Carreta

Deemed Miami’s original Cuban kitchen, La Carreta is a hub for Cuban dishes served abuela style. There’s something for everyone — from boliche to a classic Cuban sampler with roast pork, ham croquettes, tamale, yuca, and so on, paired with a mojito, for an ultimate Cuban feast.
