Larios was a delightful experience on our first trip to Miami Beach. It was elegant and calm in an otherwise hectic stretch of beach property. The added bonus was the live music coming from the sidewalk. Try the tuna tartare!

Whenever we are in south Miami we try to visit Lario's On The Beach. Their Cuban food is excellent!! We love sitting outside and enjoying the scene. My favorites are the grilled grouper, when it is offered, and their pork dishes are always excellent!!

The ceviche was tough. We ordered the paella was very bland.
We wanted flan, but they ran out and there were only 10 people in the restaurant.

We were there last year. Has definitely come down in quality. The food was also acutely mediocre, almost gave it one star.

The waitstaff was super nice but they were way overloaded. Out meal took 2.5 hours. Food was very average for all the Cuban restaurants available on the strip.

The food was great. The service was excellent. With the exception of drinks, everything was reasonably priced in the Miami area.

The food was very, very good but it would have been nice if the entrees had a vegetable. It was the protein, rice And beans , no veggies.
Staff was very nice and attentive and helpful.

Great dining experience the only downsides were that the service was extremely slow, a 20 min wait each for dessert/coffee order and the check. Their version of a caipirinha was the worst one I had on the trip.

The tour of Cuba is a fantastic dish to order as you get a little of everything, my favorite was the vaca.

Service was so bad it ruined the entire experience. But there is no incentive for good service as they add a mandatory service charge to all checks.

Food was excellent and staff very nice. Our waiter disappeared more than we would have liked and eventually had to find someone to pay our bill. But otherwise all aspects of the experience were great.
