Cafe' Sambal Restaurant
500 Brickell Key Dr, Miami, FL 33131
I see that it has been over a year since the last review and wanted to say that the restaurant experience we had was outstanding. We arrived a bit early for our seating and were escorted to a very nice bar area where the service was great. The staff used our names all the time, the food was well presented and tasted very very good. The wine list is amazing, the courses were appropriately portioned althought they may look smaller since they are served on very large plates. We left satisfied, but not stuffed which might be why some reviewers were not happy with the prices. The location and ambiance, the service and attentiveness and the overall special feel of the restaurant are the primary reasone to go. The fact that they put on a great meal is bonus. We thoroguhly enjoyed this restaurant. Tip: go early and mid-week if you can. Traffic was not bad getting there and there were not many people until about an hour after we arrived. They open for dinner at 7:00 P.M. and we arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation. The weather outside was too chilly for the balcony, but we really enjoyed overlooking the bay and seeing the skyline lit up.

Simple Food and Great Prices
If you're looking for some no-nonsense great American Breakfast / Diner food spot, this is it. Nothing fancy to look at but the food is the closest thing to home-made that you can get. Great service, Value and the place has got TONS of personality. Head to South Beach if you're looking for "high style" plate designs or servers that could care less if you're there or not; then pay through the nose for uninspired recreations which still leave you hungry. Looking for "Good Eats?" this place fits the bill.
