We recently dined twice in one day at the 1050 NW Lejeune Road location (near Miami Airport). We opted to walk across the busy road from the Marriott Fairfield Inn on a Friday in Lent. (there are several other major chains hotels within an easy 5-10 minute walk) We were not disappointed with our decision ! First let me get the negatives out of the way. This restaurant is noisy. Reason being is that it's very busy with people enjoying their meal & evening. There is also smoking allowed on covered patio. So-now you have been warned. After flying all day with enjoyed a late lunch of hearty caribbean soup and a salad. It made us forget the poor airline service. With a full service bar there is a full complement of beverages available. There was a "happy hour" from 3 PM to 7 PM-hours and days subject to change. Best bet is Monday to Thursday. Later that same evening we opted for the "famous" Fish & Chips. For $12.99 they were among the best we have had recently. Also opted for a lttle Latin favor with Seafood Paella. Again very enjoyable! The primarily language spoken by guests and staff is Spanish. We had no problems being understood in English. We also observed many guests (I am only guessing locals) enjoying a house specialty of crispy whole red snapper. Their plates were very clean when they finished.

Having the flash fried Red Snapper at the location near the airport, we had great expectation of repeating the dish at this restaurant. Unfortunately, the dining room is fast food like and the meals nothing like the other location. Lights were too bright.
The snapper was dry and as an afterthought, maybe the fish had been frozen before flash frying. Another entrée had tons of garlic in the shrimp. The linguine and clams were disappointing, too, as not much flavor. The yellow rice, I make better from a bag I buy at Publix.
If you want to sit outside, you can watch the cars go by, searching for a parking space at the Dolphin Mall, and smell the fumes.
Service was fine. Just missed the mark we anticipated from our prior experience.

Food was good once we got it. Of course it was hard to eat without utensils, which the server never noticed we're missing. She did not notice nor bring rolls even after being asked. Then she brought me the wrong side. But that's not as bad as the poor person at our table who was not served for half an hour after after everyone else. At least they had the decency to comp her meal. Did I mention when I complained about the service I got a stupid grin and not even an apology. I love management's write up about being so friendly. We seemed to eat in a different place than management thinks they run!

Everything we tried was wonderful! Menu was large, so we had the waitress guide us and it was awesome! Cuite little place around the corner from our hotel. Seating indoors or out. We tried a couple of different soups and 4 of us shared 2 big platters of grilled and fried seafood samplers. Wow! The dessert was wonderful as well. We were all fat and happy in the end.
