Miami Travel Guide

Eating in Miami

Miami have a huge range of restaurants providing to all tastes and pockets. The selected restaurants have been separated into five categories: Gastronomic, Business, Trendy, Budget and Personal Recommendations. The restaurants are listed alphabetically within these diverse categories, which function as guidelines rather than absolute definitions of the establishments.

As well as a 6.5% state sales tax, almost municipalities impose special taxes on restaurants, which alter from 9.5% to 12.5% according to district. These taxes are not contained in menu prices but are added to the bill at the end. Some places also contain a service charge in the bill but this is not common. It is usual to leave a tip of 15-20% for service.

These prices are for an average three-course meal for one person and for a bottle of house wine or cheapest equivalent; they do not include taxes, service charge or tip.

Some international cuisines are to be found, with a heavy leaning towards Latin foods, particularly Cuban cuisine. Cuban cuisine to try: a sandwich cubano (Cuban sandwich), and a cafecito (literally: little coffee, but compares to a strong, sweet expresso.)
