To start off, the city of Miami is home to tons of beaches, and none of them will disappoint you. But their nightlife? The city is filled with the most vibrant, energetic clubs, lounges, bars, etc. that you've ever seen. I'm talking about every corner of the iconic city.

But let's really talk about Miami. Even though the city is known for their nightlife and beaches, the restaurants are what really drags you to continue coming back.

From seafood to burgers, Italian and Cuban, the city offers a wide variety of amazingly tasting foods. If you're a sucker for great dining, something I always aim for when traveling, then consider heading to any of the best restaurants in Miami.


If you’re searching for high-end dining, I highly suggest you reserve a table at Zuma. As one of the best restaurants in Miami, this Japanese restaurant will certainly fulfill your seafood cravings with delectable foods.

Right in the heart of Downtown Miami, Zuma is a very well known spot when people want to spend a little more on cuisines such as sushi, sashimi, tempura, and much more. For a popular restaurant, Zuma is located in other areas and cities including London, Hong Kong, Istanbul, and more.

Served by chef Gaston Acurio, he makes sure you're being served with the best Peruvian food you could ask for. Not to mention their cocktail menu has a whole list of tropical, exotic drinks. They also serve brunch on Sundays! All of this considered, La Mar makes is rank on the best places to brunch in Miami.

Toro Toro Restaurant and Bar

Ever heard of Toro Toro in Miami? Well, you're in for a real treat. Known to be among the best restaurants in Miami, Toro Toro Restaurant and Bar offers you ideal cuisines by Chef Richard Sandoval. If you're on the hunt for a great steakhouse, Toro Toro is definitely your best bet.

This restaurant is located in Downtown Miami, where most of the greatest restaurants are. Spend dinner time here and enjoy energetic music, signature cocktails and drinks (not to mention their collection of fine wines). And, of course, their delectable food.

Also, their salads are to die for, from tropical to Latin caesar, and appetizers such as guacamole, hummus, tuna tartare, and much more to enjoy.

Aside from their food, the theme of the restaurant is very cozy, all the while mellow and vibrant. The restaurant is surrounded by 11-foot multi-colored paintings to really give the place some color and an appealing atmosphere while you’re enjoying the food. No wonder Wynwood Kitchen and Bar is seen to be among the best restaurants in Miami.

Peacock Garden Bistro

Get this — Peacock Garden Bistro. Not only did the name of the restaurant catch my attention, but the setting of the place is gorgeous. You're having a meal right in the center is a beautiful garden, what more can you ask for when dining in Miami?

It's almost as if you're dining at the Coconut Grove, something they aim for. You can take a quick stop here for a snack, or settle down for a few hours while enjoying a delicious meal.

But I suggest you visit the Peacock Garden Bistro on the brightest day to really get a feel of the garden. You’re basically surrounded by stunning flowers and green life!


Viewed as one of the top restaurants in Coconut Grove and one of the best restaurants in Miami as a whole, Lulu offers great and diverse foods from their delectable pastries to savory ground beef and homemade smoked salmon.

Meals made with only organic ingredients, Lulu is certainly a restaurant you should consider booking a table if you're anywhere near Coconut Grove. Either visiting for brunch, lunch, or dinner, you'll never be disappointed, and will leave satisfied!

Catch of the Day

Here's a fun and exciting spot to dine at, Catch of the Day! The name of the place sounds appealing, as well. But what will really "reel you in" is their array of tasty foods! This place isn't one of the best restaurants in Miami for nothing.

The chefs behind it all serve the greatest seafood around, as well as top quality steaks. Either you’re into seafood or steak … or both, you’ll always have something to pick off of their award-winning menu. Also, the atmosphere is super hip and exciting to spend a couple of hours at.


Who doesn't want to grab a burger while visiting Miami? But you can't just head to any regular burger joint; make LoKal a place to remember. This burger joint and bar is where most people head to if they want to dive right into a great burger, because it's one of the best burger joints in America.

Not only do they also have a selection for vegan and gluten-free, but their burgers are all grass-fed with no hormones, antibiotics or steroids. Meaning, you'll always be served with top-quality, organic burgers.

Their burgers here are actually to die for. Even though you can pick the toppings, most of them are topped with guava jelly, melted Gruyere, bacon, LoKal sauce, and even stuffed with potato sticks!

Never heard of burgers like this, right? And the majority of these burgers are priced fairly, about $15! With a hefty burger, the price is ideal.

Blue Collar

Lastly, for the best restaurants in Miami, Blue Collar is a small restaurant with delicious food to enjoy. This place is more casual, but what they serve certainly isn't basic and ordinary. From their ribs to cheeseburgers, breakfast meals, and vegan selection, there's something for everyone to indulge in.

Blue Collar is easily one of the best places for breakfast and brunch because of their amazing selection of breakfast food. They even have categories labeled "Eggy Stuff" and "Syrupy Stuff" on their menu.

But the list under these categories will have your mouth watering. Don't miss out on Blue Collar if you want to head to a great restaurant for breakfast food!
