Food was only ok. Everything that sounded good on the menu had gluten. Only a few options to choose from. Only ate here so my fiancé could have a Cuban sandwich. Would not go back again. Did not have a reaction. Staff was pretty knowledgeable.

My daughter ate rice and beans and a salad at this establishment. I was a bit unsure based on the staff knowledge and reviews above. I was assured that the black beans were not made in any sauce other than the basics. She was fine, no contamination or illness:)

Various GF options, and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. It felt like not being celiac (for a change).

Staff wasn’t aware of what a gluten allergy was. Ate what suggested after waiting over an hour for our food only to have a terrible reaction. I am not sensitive at all, can’t imagine what sensitive people would have experienced. 0/10

Staff did not have any idea about gluten. Did not eat here because it did not feel safe.

Went here, but didn't eat as I did not trust them. Food looks delicious, but dangerous for a celiac. Not knowledgeable.

Came based on reviews. Staff didn’t even know what gluten was, then got a waiter that did- but he basically said you could get the base meat (chicken, beef, seafood) but no sauces or fixing. Shared grill. Very ignorant to gluten allergy kitchen staff. Got a drink (sangaria is yummy), then left without eating because of contamination. Didn’t want to ruin my vacation.

Be aware that cross contamination is a real thing here. The food was acceptable, tasty even, but I had a reaction. I didn’t eat any of the friend plantains, but even with chicken, rice, and beans, had a reaction. The atmosphere is great and the live music was a wonderful addition t the experience. That said, use caution if you decide this is the place for you while on South Beach.

I love the food from all of Latin America and this restaurant did not disappoint. They were well aware of how to prevent cross contamination and I was able to choose from so many different meals and drinks. Will be back!

Nice place to have brunch. Staff is knowledgeable, but not clear about cross contamination.

They were very knowledgeable and the staff was extremely nice ! Read the previous review and was worried about eating here, just to find out they were wrong. The food is very good, very fresh, and an amazing atmosphere. I didn't get sick whatsoever. I highly recommend this place !!

very disappointed. 3 things on the menu are GF. Flank steak, White Fish, and grilled Chicken. Host and waitress were challenged answer GF questions. mojito was good though.

The food was delicious however, you have to know which items to order and which sauces to ask about because the waiter did not understand the gluten free request. I didn't get glutened but research the sauces beforehand.

They say most things are gluten free, after eating there and ordering special gluten free items I got glutened. I wouldn't recommend this as gluten free. Most likely it was cross contamination.

Best meal of the trip. Very knowledgable waitress and most of the food is naturally gluten free.

I would pass it by this place is a total tourist trap. The wait staff was friendly kind of understood what we were looking for. There are not a lot of items on the menu that are safe. they use flour in all the sauces and everything that is fried is off limits. To be safe I stuck with a salad which was mediocre. My girlfriend had pork entree which was good and she didn't get sick although she's much less sensitive than I am.

The food was excellent, but the waitstaff had no idea what gluten was, and the manager told me that although there wasn't a separate GF menu, I could see for myself that there were lots of GF options. Unsurprisingly, I didn't feel so great later. Sadly.

Exceptional food. Great service and atmosphere. My waitress seemed very good and knowledgable with gluten free and dairy free.

Best way to top off a Foodies' vacation!!! Food was AMAZING! Service and price was best we had in Miami! Recommend to everyone, GF or not!

My server didn't know about gluten allergies but she asked in the kitchen and said she got "an education." The appetizers were ruled out but most of the main dishes were fine. I felt a little glutened the next morning, but I'm not sure the restaurant was to blame. Even if it was, the circumstances were rather extraordinary — it began pouring rain in the middle of service and all we were able to save from our outdoor table was our half pitcher of sangria (which our server generously refilled while we waited). We stood in the door of the restaurant for a half hour waiting for the rain to stop. So if there was some confusion in the kitchen about my order and cross contamination occurred, I'm willing to forgive them. The food was very tasty.

Food was super yummy. My waitress wasn't familiar with gluten free options BUT did help me find the best items to eat.

Fabulous! Our server didn't show me what I could have, he showed me what I couldn't which was only a handful of things. Do you enjoy good food and many options? This is divine!
