Best Seafood Restaurants In Miami

1. Mignonette

Mignonette is Miami’s premier seafood spot and Florida’s best place to have some fresh bites. Housed in an old 1930’s gas station, they don’t lack on charm, either. It’s just upscale enough that isn’t pretentious and just casual enough that you can be comfortable while still feeling special.

While they offer a wide range of seafood dishes, the oysters are what bring the place to life. We recommend the ‘Oysters Frank’ and crab cakes.

2. Novikov Miami

Novikov is a Miami wonder known for its insanely fresh sashimi and maki. If you are a sushi lover, this place is perfect for you. Order any of their premium sushi dishes such as Chu-Toro or seared O-Toro and be sure to call ahead for a spot on the patio.

In addition to killer sushi, they also serve other globally-inspired sea fares that just can’t be beat.

3. Kush by Spillover

Treat yourself to a feast of the sea at Kush by Spillover, the new post-lockdown concept of the popular restaurant that’s now combined with gastropub Kush . This bustling swanky eatery is known for its scratch kitchen and delicious juicy seafood. Even better? They serve arguably the best variety of ciders and meads in the state. Order the lobster BLT with one of their 50 cider varieties and dig in.

4. La Camaronera

If you’re looking for the best shrimp and seafood in Florida, head to La Camaronera. The Garcia brothers had a vision of bringing delicious Cuban inspired seafood eats to Miami, and that’s precisely what they’ve done with La Camaronera.

Here you’ll find a large variety of delicious seafood dishes, but the shrimp is where it’s at. Order a place of their ‘camarones fritos’ (fried shrimp) and a beer for a feast.
