Amazing food and service. However the price is high. They offer the plate of the day which was amazing but no price since it was not in the menu. We were surprised to pay $65 + taxes per each plate. Great place, great food and great service but a little bit pricey for the location.

About the restaurant
CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?

📍 FAENA MIAMI BEACH
James Beard Award-winning chef, Paul Qui, unfolds an ultra-exclusive speakeasy style Omakase experience-- El Secreto. Blending Tokyo-style sushi and Kyoto-style kaiseki into an unparalleled tasting menu that’s prepared and served for a mouthwatering culinary journey.

Tucked behind FAENA's candlelit cava and the red velvet folds of Faena Theater, there is beauty hidden in the shadows. EL SECRETO, Miami's best-kept secret for those in the know.

In Japan, the term ‘omakase’ refers to respectfully leaving another to decide what is best, or in gastronomic speak: the chef’s selection.

Indulge in the highest-quality seafood from around the world and relish in ever-evolving dishes and ingredients such as line-caught fish flown in daily, innovative vegetable dishes, sea urchin from Hokkaido, sustainable bluefin tuna from Baja and Sanuki Olive Wagyu from Kagawa Prefecture in Japan.

What you’ll find? We’ll never tell.

About the restaurant
When we came up with the idea to open a Serbian restaurant in Miami Beach, we were set on a couple of things. We wanted to offer our guests a warm and relaxing environment where they can feel at home and we wanted to introduce them to a Balkan cuisine that’s rich not only in flavor, but in tradition as well. We invite you to take a gourmet history tour and discover why are more and more people in Miami Beach falling in love with Serbian food. Spicy and unique dishes like the Mediterranean Pljeskavica, Goulash, and Cevapi will activate all your senses while eating. Of course, a meal is not complete without a glass of our premium Rakija brandy. Just remember to sip and enjoy.
