Restaurant wasn’t even open. So we went there and had no ability to eat. Should have been updated on website and no reservations accepted.

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.

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 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.

Expecting big things from Larios and was sadly disappointed. The service was awful. Our party of four was neglected while our waiter attended to a large group that came in. The worst part, they added an 18% gratuity to the bill. They honestly did not deserve one.

We made reservations. We got there on time. It was freezing outside. We asked to sit inside. They then said there were absolutely no tables inside. We sat outside with walk ins and had to leave when the food came. Why did we bother to make a reservation?

We always love Larios when we come to Miami. As usual, the food and service were as good as always. We sat outside, and this time, a Latin band (shared with the restaurant next door) were playing so loud that it was nearly impossible to talk. The band was very good, don’t get me wrong, but there was no need for it to be as loud as it was. It really affected our experience.

Reviews said food was delicious.
We wanted to sit outside, but the evening was rainy and windy.
Our reservation was for 8:00 and I thought we would have a problem accommodating the outside reservations.
We arrived early and were seated immediately inside.
What a beautiful restaurant!!
Our waiter was really nice!
The service was fantastic!
The food was delicious!
We will definitely be back!!

Food was decent, nothing spectacular. Service was awful however, and of course 20% gratuity added. No lunch menu on weekends which made this a super overpriced lunch for the experience. Would not return.
