Miami New Times' Description

The atmosphere at this Latin American seafood restaurant is pretty dull. Servers seem listless, and there isn't much effort on their part to establish a rapport with customers. But the dining area is ample and can easily accommodate large parties. And the prices are friendlier than the servers: There are 12 seafood entrées that cost less than $10. The rest of the menu is a bit overpriced for the quality of the restaurant. In particular, "chef's recommendations" such as dolphin filet with shrimp in garlic sauce ($17) and churrasco steak and lobster ($40) are too expensive for what you get. Commonly ordered dishes include Floridita-style paella ($18.95), a combination of ham, seafood, and chicken cooked in a Latin-style yellow rice stew, and shrimp ceviche ($8.95), which contains a very small amount of lime-marinated seafood. Considering Miami's proximity to the ocean, a lack of fresh, delicious fish is disheartening. Other port cities like San Francisco don't seem to have that problem. To find really good seafood in Miami, you have to go to a high-end place, and El Floridita doesn't fall into that category.

    My parents and I ordered from their $10 menu and we were surprised the little amount of food that was put in the styrofone take out containers and on top of that they made a mistake on the deserts

    Try the minuta, it's wonderful, also their $10 menu is great! It includes soup or salad, an entree, dessert and coffee.

    Wonderful service. Food is excellent. The $10 lunch special is the best value in town! Highly recommended!!!
